Ready to Fly

Had a great week of training with some strong efforts on Monday and Tuesday. In fact, Tuesday was pretty brutal since I was really trying to push the pace and force myself to have to actively recover after hard efforts.

Took Wednesday off completely. No easy spinning, no basement trainer ride. My body was telling me to get some rest.

Yesterday, I wound up doing x3 1omin L2/3 intervals on the trainer, some high cadence spinning (120+ RPMs) and some really easy tempo. Good a great sweat going.

Today, the Thrasher Ride was a pretty good tempo, nothing earth shattering, but we did pick up the pace towards the end of Clara Barton. Legs felt really good. Left calf strain is finally working itself out, but still feel it. Have no idea how I strained it, but its been nagging me for the past couple of weeks.

Tomorrow, I'll go for a solo, easy spin ride for maybe an hour or two. Nothing but spinning.

If my legs felt like they did at UMd PresCup, watch out on Sunday at JeffCup, I'll be flying.

Ray. Stay up front. This race is full rolling enclosure so you can reposition any time you want. The run in to the finish is loooong. You have way more time than you think to get in position to sting them with a sprint inside the last 100 meters. Don't go too early. Stay on a wheel until the very end. Then slam dunk the thing. You can win this race!

Rayman bad move now youre gona be a marked man for sure. Make a false post haha "Legs feel like shit, think i'm sick"

Remember to race smart and that the race is probably going to come down to a sprint. Conserve and use your energy wisely. Good luck man.

Thanks guys, but I'm going to be one man attacking machine. I'll attack every hill, every flat, and I'm going to launch my spring about a mile from the finish.
