I was a bit sick on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. Some sort of stomach thing. Nothing great gobs of Pepto couldn't cure, but it prevented me from even getting to a stationary bike at the hotel. Oh well.
Aside from that, training has been ok. I had one of my best workouts of the year on Monday which was basically a strength building workout - 50 rpm moderate HR hill repeats. I also had one of my worst of the year yesterday. I had trouble getting my HR up and once that became apparent, I mentally checked out. I got through it and tried to quickly forget it. Today I will go out and do my "Tune Up" workout to prepare for my crit tomorrow in San Antonio. I expect the race to be one of the smaller races of the year, but I look forward to getting some intensity in. June is a busy racing month for me. If the gods are good, I will get to do the ones I have scheduled.
I had to order a new rear derailler hanger for my race bike yesterday. I am not sure what happened to the current one, but the screw is stripped out and it is barely hanging on. Once I clamp the skewer down things stay in place. I think it will hold on tomorrow.
Here is a picture of my little guy Tony who is now almost 7 months old. Hard to believe.
And finally, #5 on "Top 10 Cheesiest Songs of All Time That You Probably Like But Won't Admit It." I am going to slow it down a bit. Even the Nights Are Better by Air Supply. This video even has some solid cycling scenes!
