Training Week - Dog Days Race
I'm racing on Sat. (road race) and Sun.(crit at Grant Park). Not sure how the form is and have put a couple of hours in every day this week but I'm trying to bring it back around. Monday Gym (hard on the legs as well as everything else) and recovery ride, Tuesday Northlake ride in the rain (40 miles), Wednesday morning ride (30 miles with sprints), Thursday pizza ride (30 miles). Of note there was a pack of 5 or so riders off the front then 4 of us (M Lindburg, Dana, myself and one other) and the pack behind-us. Put an effort in to bridge to the pack and made it. We were caught on the climbs in the back. Managed to recover and continue without too much fatigue. This year I've been able to make efforts and try things without just sitting in and trying to finish with the group. I'm considering this weekend C races for me but the weather looks good so I'm looking forward to it.
