august is a busy month for me. i'm taking a year off from med school and doing a year's fellowship in our pathology department...lots of random tissue pieces, body parts, dead bodies, and knowledge re: cancer. in august my schedule is 6:45am-5 or 6pm; at the end of the day, i've been too tired to want to ride (hard) so i decided to ride before work...getting out at 5am with my light each morning. cross season is so close i can taste it, so everything is focused on that: 4x6 (15sec on 15 sec on) all-out, 2-3x15-20minute threshold intervals, skills practice with lots of hill run-ups and stairs.
septemer is almost here and some fun races are on the horizon: 6hr binder, sswc in durango, greensfelder. the mtb season was unfortunately truncated to only the last half of the season for me, but i still managed to get some good results in the single speed class and am looking forward to racing expert on my ss next season.
