Well last week did not go as planned. But all in all everything turned out OK.
I was asked on Thursday to work a graveyard shift on Thursday night instead of Friday. That is my usual extra shift because I have to work Friday days. Anyway - I went ahead and did it even thought it would mess with training on Friday. God was I ever tired on Friday - I finally made it home about 3:00 pm and fell asleep. So my training was screwed for the week.
I did get on the bike yesterday - indoor trainer because of the weather. I did the complete CTS Training Session on Time Trails. That is a one hour long sufferfest of power intervals. It sure felt good too. The weather has not been cooperating with my training schedule. The mornings have been cold and foggy for the past 4 days. I hope this week shows some improvement.
I finished putting together my new aero cage over the weekend. It looks great and is a lot easier to get bottles out and in behind me. I like to storage area for tubes and the extra space that it allows under the seat for a small pouch. My Kilo got a nice bath yesterday, I got in and cleaned the cassette, chain and derailleur pulleys. I had to fix a flat on my back carbon wheel. funny thing is a flatted while on my trainer. Doesn't make much sense does it? Best I can tell there was a thorn in the tire that had not touched the tube yet and the pressure from the roller pushed it through. Anyway, The bike is definitely race ready now.
