Training - Week 14

The hardest (best?) training week in a long time, with nearly 20,000 ft of climbing. Too much too soon? Time will tell.

Number of rides: 7
Riding time: 18 hrs
Time in mid/high aerobic zone: 6 hrs
Best ride of the week: From a training perspective, the ad hoc Saturday group ride in Santa Ynez Valley: canyon loop (Foxen-Cat-Drum-Ballard) plus Figueroa Mtn. ~90 miles in 5.5 hrs.
Worst ride of the week: Saturday, group ride in Santa Ynez Valley: I'll have to get my thoughts together for a subsequent post about this ride, but it left me feeling uneasy because there were some unhappy campers.
Other: Played some baseball with Brian McFlurry.
- Did six OSM repeats on Wed, averaging ~19:00 each. That's about the amount of climbing advertised for the road stage of the Las Vegas Stage Race in three weeks. It was tough to do that many, but thanks to some company from Mountain Man Ed in the middle, I was able to finish them all. Sometimes I think intervals are as much of a mental test as physical one!
- OSM on Thursday 15:35 at 90%

Southern Nevada Stage Race Cancelled
1/9/07 - Unfortunately do to circumstances beyond our control the Southern Nevada Stage Race will be canceled for 2007. All racers who have already registered will receive a full refund. I can assure everyone that this decision has nothing to do with the venue change or the municipalities. Everyone involved is very excited to put on the relatively new race and anticipate putting on the event for 2008. I am sorry for what ever inconveniences this decision may have caused. - Sincerely, Richard Craig, SNSR Race Promoter

Yeah, bummer. I was dreading the tt, but really excited about the road race. It seemed like that race would have been a more gentle start to 2007, whereas Boulevard is always a sufferfest that everyone goes to fired up.
