This SS stuff is killing me. I raced again on Wednesday and it was tougher than I expected it to be. I just don't feel strong--my legs have not been "light and snappy" for a long time.
I raced today also. Today was the Race for Everyone sponsored by Mad Dog and hosted by Sundance. My time was two minutes slower than last week. It was the same distance and same bike as last week. I think that the 24 hours that preceded it influenced the slower time. My department at work went out for lunch yesterday. I had a salad, but not long after my stomach became upset. It may or may not have been the salad. By the time I got home my legs and back were really achey--which makes me think it may not have been the salad. None the less I did not have much to eat besides pretzels last night and breakfast included a luna bar and pretzels. Before the race I had another bar, but that is it. I actually made more climbs today than last week though.
thanks for the photos, brad.
