Training Week May 18 - 24, 2009

Monday - 50 min lunch spin class - moderate
Tuesday - 1:30 GG Park Sprints - hard with some tempo
Wednesday - 50 min lunch spin class - hard
Thursday - 1:15 Polo field paceline tempo - hard
Friday - 50 min lunch spin class easy (HR mostly in the 80's, didn't go above 100)
Saturday - 1:30 prerace ride with Greg M. - GG Park, Land's End, Presidio, Fort Point. A few hard 1 min hills.
Sunday - Mt. Hamilton RR - 35+/45+ combined. After Lyman tried a dig, I got away around mile 8. Held it over the top for the KOM and kept going solo until I was caught at mile 45 by the Specialized train (Casey, Innes & Metcalfe) with Lyman geting a free ride. Being outnumbered 3-2, and being the 2 slowest sprinters, Lyman and I knew we had to attack. I went 1st, unsuccessfully, then Lyman went with Casey chasing. They stayed away with Casey taking the sprint. Innes led out the sprint for 3rd with Metcalfe beating me by a couple feet. Unfortunately though Casey & Lyman were DQ'd by the refs for crossing the center line as they followed the moto by a Cat 3 pack, so Metcalfe was awarded the win and I was given 2nd.
Real bummer for Casey as this is the 2nd time a win has been taken from him. At least the podium makeup didn't change with Specialized still 1-3 and us in 2nd.

Long cooldown ride back to SJ with a good group. (total of about 5 hrs riding).
Thanks to Chris Hipp for the time gap updates and for moto pacing the ride back to SJ.

Weekly totals - 9:15 riding, 2:30 spinning - 11:45 total.
