Training has been pretty good. I've realized that I've lost a LOT of base fitness, but I'm feeling a little stronger. I wasn't exactly riding that well during radcross, and I took in a big swig of defeat during that race. I was way off the back, and am riding several levels below where I was last year.
That all being said, I'm trying to recover some modicum of ability, and salvage the season with a strong race or two. Boss Cross #5/MO State is my final tune up race before the KS State Championship next Sunday. I need to ride strong and not have any stupid mechanicals. I think I have the mechanical thing under wraps, and like I said, I've been training hard. Last night, I blew my legs out doing The Sufferfest, Fight Club. See below. I love the Sufferfest, and they love me.
My legs are still achy today, which is pretty good for a one hour workout. I'm lifting tonight with core with some more moderate spinning efforts, and then recover on Wednesday. Blow the legs out again on Thursday night, lift/core/spin on Friday, and then easy spin with some openers on Saturday.
CX weather is finally here, and it looks to be a high of 38 on Sunday. Brrr. Maybe I should have bought that thermal skinsuit. Oh well, there's always next year.
