It was pretty dang windy in the Republic of Boulder today. We are talking the kind where you get shoved to one side of the road. Since I felt good yesterday, I decided to go with it, and did some intervals a hair above threshold up Lee Hill Rd, back on Old Stage, then back up Lee Hill for about 5 minutes until I made myself go home so I didn’t overdo it.
Numbers were looking good, and because I was climbing, there was actually something interesting to look at for the power file. If you want to geek out, here you go.
Those were the most interesting anyway. I had a lot of fun, and was laughing maniacally.
After that, I went to say bye to Rick da man. It just so happened he was at the new Boulder Velodrome. I have been wanting to check that place out. It’s pretty neat… I have never ridden on a track before (and did not try it today) It’s not quite my flavor, but I can totally see how it rocks peoples’ world, and it’s a GREAT step forward for advancing cycling in this area.
For your viewing pleasure:
You spin me right round baby, right round….
This part looked fun. There were 5 year old kids bravely traversing this part of the area. Crashing, then giggling. Something to remember…
Now it’s off to the BMA Banquet. I am patiently awaiting to hear back if I got into the Leadville 100. Just a few more days….
We have an awesome park, which I really need to get teh frig out to.
If you and the Kerkove ever get to Cleveland drop a line. I’ll provide the comic relief by repeatedly crashing out. 😛
