My apologies for not showing at the awards banquet tonight. 

First of all I would be flying solo and a 5 hour two-way drive by myself tonight is not exactly what I would call fun. 

Then I would be at a awards banquet where I am recognized for my accomplishments, and although I highly value the racing community, all my friends in it and their recognition/encouragement/camaraderie, the people who I matter the most to and who matter the most to me would be missing me at home and not be able to share that moment with me, which would feel awkward. 

I love the banquets and try not to miss them.  I really wanted to be a part of it to enjoy and support the community.  I actually feel kinda bad for not going, but I just would have a hard time enjoying myself knowing I left the family at home and riding solo.  I really do feel like I am should be there, just torn with life commitments and time.


THANK YOU SO MUCH Darrin for picking up the prizes for me!  You are by far one of the best friends I have found in this sport and I appreciate you so much!

The Plan and lack there of!

Friel sums it up well as to why your not getting much blog action. I guess I am assuming you could care less about all the other stuff I do since this is a racing blog, but if you want more from other areas of life let it be known, otherwise deal with silence. :)

Then again Hockey will come soon enough, and I consider that racing, kinda….

Better watch out, new guy is only a few weeks old and Lindsay is setting 1 hour blue laps as an easy pace!

Spent the weekend hanging out in a hospital room.  After Lindsay and Kyle were settled in, I went home with the girls on Sunday night, put them to bed and got my race on, since I missed WORS #11!  Hit the trainer for 1.5 hours. Built a pyramid with 1,2,3,4,5,5,4,3,2,1 minute intervals over threshold with half the intervals time in rest.  I thought that would be enough, but felt good and decided to add a 30 min. threshold ride with over threshold for 45 seconds into 30 seconds of threshold and back to 45 seconds until the last 5 minutes where I went over and above till I saw 190 BPM’s for the last couple minutes.  I have never had cramps from an interval ride until Sunday night a little while after the ride I had a crazy one that had me straight legged trying to hold onto my laptop while all sideways on the couch, trainer was as good as racing or maybe better?

Went to 2 classes out of 4 on Monday and took the day off the bike to hang with kids around the house and hang out at the hospital with family. 

Lindsay and Kyle were finally allowed to leave the hospital this morning and I took the whole day off school to help get them home and settled, but got a ride in during a little nap Kyle took.

Made my way toward Delafield and decided to do some warm-up recon for tomorrow with DB and the WETC Gangsters!
