Training Week June 29 - July 5, 2009

I've been lagging on the training update.

Monday - In Louisville - AM rode TT course, then after lunch rode a lap of the RR course. A few moderate efforts. 1:30 total riding.
Tuesday - RR - 30 min W/U, 2 HR race - 10 x 4.8 mile laps (11:00 to 11:15 per lap), near the back for the 1st 2 laps, then moved up. Got away on the 7th climb, but caught by a small group. Cluster @ the finish, I followed 3 others who missed the turn, then turned around & finished 4th. Good for Roemer to make the right turn to the finish to win it.
30 min cooldown, 3 hr total riding. Great dinner with Hunter & Cale @ Z's Fusion
Wednesday - TT - start was delayed 2 hrs. - 45 min w/u - felt tired & not super motivated - 1:30 total riding. Finished 26th, over 3 min down on Lyman, but may have been the only guy in the 40-44 without a TT bike.
Thursday - Rest day at home.
Friday - Easy 45 min ride
Saturday - Rode to Mill Valley to meet up with Purple Patch group, & rode to Pt. Reyes Sta. & back along Hwy 1 with them. 5 Hr total ride.
Sunday - Off

Weekly totals: 11:45 Riding

Just heard Nats will be in Louisville again next year. I hate flying with my bike. =(
