Back in the saddle

Two hours at Lou's Garage tonight. Zone 3 and zone 4 ladder workout for two hours with spots of recovery after each interval. Knee feels fine. Legs feel like rubber after a week off and getting hit with an interval workout. I see what it feels like tomorrow and then decide on doing a snow ride on Saturday or sitting on the trainer in the basement. Oh, and I got my flush letter from Leadville today. I was informed that if I signed up for one of the Carmichael Mountain Bike training camps, that it includes an entry into Leadville for next year. While I'm all for stuff like volunteering to help and getting preferential consideration for entry, the thought of getting a guaranteed spot by paying to attend a training camp chafes my hide a bit. The entry fee is already pretty steep for Leadville, I definitely don't feel that it's worth any more than they already charge. I know there's some race organizers out there that don't make a dime (and even lose) money on their events that might deserve my money a bit more.

And now, back to my regularly scheduled race prep.

I have 3hrs for Saturday...was thinking about Big Creek. Cam and Jed are riding it today so I'll be calling one of them for a report. If its good I'll be up there, if not....gravel...think I'll head south this time. Stop at Summerset State Park and see what the trail looks like perhaps.

Peace
