      4 hours in the snow in the woods on the single speed. Was part of a harmless 5 person pile up on a sheet of ice

      Did the last 80km of the '08 Tour of Flanders this morning on the turbo. 90 minutes+ of SST with a 5x5s tossed in for a little variety. The puddle of sweat of the floor was pretty deep!

      25 degrees here this morning...to cold for my blood, but it was a balmy 50 in my building for my 60 minute effort @ 90%. last 50km of 08 Fleche di the trick this morning!

      You know you went hard when your sweat makes the dried mud drip off the bottom bracket!

      Yesterday I rode out the conclusion of the Surf City Cyclocross series with a modicum of dignity, securing my title as the third-fastest slow guy for the whole series. After being off the bike for a month I had no expectation of being fast, and started in the back of the pack, but managed to move up to 6th before the race was out.
      Afterwards, I stuck around to cheer on my teammate in her race, then watched some guy named "Tim Johnson" show up and blow the field apart in the Elite race.

      I did 15 miles on the trainer today. I wish I had studded tires.

      1h30 on the trainer. LT and VO2max workout = lots of unpleasantness. Last year I sweated so much on the trainer that I had to replace the bottom bracket on my bike.

      Been 10-15 below freezing here for a few weeks.... trying to keep motivated to be on the trainer every night

      Poached some illegal singletrack tonight with Mark and my little brother. It was great fun.

      Ill vouch for that. Great fun especially my face plant after losing the front end over that super muddy, wet, ultra-rooty section.

      75km in 2:30 this morning. Decent spin for the legs...
      Then I built furniture for 2 hours...that should count as cross training!

      40 mile group ride today. Easy spin (for me) but put the hurt on the holiday slackers [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I spent some time tonight assembling Ikea puzzles as well. The TSS may be reasonable, but the IF is too low for my liking.

      Thankfully I had a chance to spend a few hours at the velodrome earlier today. It certainly makes for a nice break from the "other" indoor riding.

      The furniture was solid wood and heavy as hell! I think the IF was @ .40-45!

      same route as last sunday, ~34miles, temps much warmer mid 30s F. Rode at social pace with my friend, I felt pretty strong.

      Got out early last morning and did a 14 miles loop at Annadel with a couple friends. Just in time too. A five day storm just moved in yesterday afternoon.

      2:15 ride time
      75 km
      Windy and rain, but 60+ degrees
      Picked the route to have the tailwind home. Rolling along at 25-35 mph for the last hour was glorious!
