RIver Trails

Snow biking again last night- Jeff came up from Chicago to join us in the cold and dark. The trail are perfect, and you should get out there! Luckily, it looks like it'll stay perfect for a while longer, too.



On the training front, I've been going at it for a handful of weeks now. Jon's come over and administered some tests. No doubt it's either confusing or boring to most people, but here are my results (click to get a larger image):

I say,

To be honest, it's a little confusing to me still. I understand what the tests measure (well, mostly, anyhow!), but I don't know if I'm doing well, average, or just blah. According to Coach Jon, I need to work on maintaining a sprint, but I did well in the test at the bottom, so huzzah!

I've been a little weary from all of this terrible exercise. I haven't been tired, per se, but my legs haven't felt as fresh as they would usually be. That is, as fresh as they were when I enjoyed a week of sloth between races. But it turns out that I can do what's asked when I settle in (like 1:15 hrs of running),so I'll try consuming better fuel for the fire, and hopefully my body will become acclimated to it all.

Props for subjecting yourself to the dreaded Conconi (aka ride 'til you puke) test. For most people, the work you're able to do out on the road (and especially in a race) significantly exceeds what you can do indoors. So go ahead and quadruple everything.
