Oh sure...you go and break 17 minutes on OSM on a "bad day", while us mere mortals struggle to stay under 19...

You need to eat more doughnuts.

No, no, no... Thursday was a *good* day! I guess we'll keep testing your theory of high-aerobic-zone base training, eh?

By "high aerobic-zone" do you mean "Sweetspot" training?

Best "bang for the buck", baby!

Yeah, I suppose I do mean "Sweetspot" most-bang-for-the-buck training. Three 1-hour rides so far this week, each one mostly in that zone. I'd prefer to go out on longer rides but I'm really swamped with a software task. Man, I don't know how you working stiffs do it...
