Germs and other things
So out of my selfishness I keep my consoling to the verbal kind while I bathe myself in Purell, drink uber amounts of fluid, break out the Emergency, and put a couple extra drops of Thieves in my morning Oatmeal and afternoon Tea.
Athletically speaking its just been a B-minus sort of start to the year. Just training and training and training with nothing to show for it -- minus this one little measuring stick. And that was last Sunday morning. The first of a three-part indoor bike time trial (TT) series at the Well Fit. The fine folks at the Well Fit set the TT course into their line up of 24 Computrainers -- you arrive with your bike, you hook in, you warm up and then it's off we go against the clock.
Sunday was supposed to be a pancake flat 10k (which was suspect...that last 5k sure felt all up hill to this citizen cyclist). Race #2 will be a rolling course and Race #3 a hill climb -- which I would totally kill if it were outdoors...but watts per kilogram only works to a wee man's advantage when gravity is involved. On the trainer it's just one big fat thigh crushing spin.
