I finished 3rd overall for the series with Cale #1 and Mark #2 (both head and shoulders faster and better bike drivers than I). This series was a blast and super effort workouts getting me in good shape to start 'cross. Looks like they will put this on again next year and teamed with the Waffle Races the summer of '11 could be a lot of fun locally. The top three finishers received some sweet hoodies and in the picture I tried to make it look like a podium (I am not that short compared to these guys).
Wednesday I jumped on the SBU courses and got in a non-stop 1:30hrs of bike driving at a low-to-medium effort level. Since Cat 3's are racing AN HOUR at the Boss Cross events I need to keep up the longer rides on technical courses to condition the body. Have to admit I was surprised to see our race go longer than 45 to 50 minutes, but I feel my good base and fitness level with benefit me so I'm not griping. Thought about racing the Masters and then the 3's, but not with the longer 3's.
Spent some time in the shop last night cutting a ton of trim pieces for Deb's dining room update (always looking for a reason to play with big boy tools). So far it looks great and all is left is for me to get the wainscoting frames put together, primed and painted, and installed. The color and design really updated the area and might be one of my favorite rooms now.
Speaking of updates, Deb got to check out her new granite yesterday and is looking forward to next Friday's installation. She's been waiting for this ever since we moved in.
On the world cycling front bummer to see more riders coming up positive... sigh. Will be interesting to see what comes of AC. After seeing the news Ian hoped Thor would test for something so his boy Cav take the green (he was only joking).
