Training Week August 18 - 24, 2008

Monday – Off

Tuesday – Mt. Tam ride with Zteam. Rode to Stinson (1:45), then Tam Course (moderate - 46:30 with Lyman), back to Corte Madera. (30). 3:00 total.

Wednesday – off

Thursday – 45 min spin class - after work went to see Bullitt at the Legion of Honor with K, pretty cool to see that one on a big screen.

Friday – Easy 30 min park ride

Saturday – Ride with Craig to Muir Woods & back. Checked out SF twilight crit course – too bad it doesn’t go up one more block to Green street. 3:00 ride

Sunday – University RR – I decided to sleep in and skip P/1/2 race and just do the 35+/45+ race (It was a crazy idea to even consider doing both). The race was a lot of fun (though most people may argue with that description). Hutch was in a break for most of the first half of the race. As soon as he was caught I attacked and got away solo with 7 laps to go. I thought it was probably too early to go solo, but once I was away gave it 100% and this time it worked. 1:00 warm-up, 1:44 race, not much of a cool down.
After the race I stayed to watch the women’s and Cat 4/5 races and hand out neutral water. It was getting real hot and most racers were taking a bottle every lap or 2. Good thing VeloPromo had plenty of bottle for everyone.

Weekly total: 10 hours.
