Base Miles… CHECK!

By January 13, 200910 Comments

I was able to finish out my miles on Sunday, minus just one hour. Logging 29/30 hours last week is more than just an accomplishment to me and I can tell that the 80 hours I put in on the bike over the last 3 weeks have really helped my fitness. Sunday was another day on the trails, and I let myself go hard a few times. Even after all those miles, I was able to jump out of the saddle and charge up power climbs and through technical sections. I didn’t have to wrap or tape my knees either. They were hurting a little, but it was more of just a nuisance.

Rick has a plan… and so far, the plan is working. Here is his newest article by Rick on Velonews. This week, is rest! rest! rest! Yesterday, I went to work, ate happy hour sushi (2 rolls for 7 bucks!) with Jeff, and enjoyed a Deschutes Black Butte porter and some Australian Shiraz.

I got in to Boulder around 9PM on Sunday night. It was windy and relatively warm. I woke up Monday morning to 5.5 inches of snow on the ground – a not so nice surprise. It’s supposed to be in the 40s here for the rest of the week, so that will be just fine for my 10 hour rest week. ๐Ÿ™‚ My foot and knees are on the mend, along with rebuilding many many muscle fibers. Reeeechhhharrrrge.
