Fri, Sep 11

Only 23 days left until the race; the training log for the past week:

Saturday:
Danville - Diablo Summit - Danville, 2:07h, 28.1 miles; 1:15h from Hole in the Wall up to Summit, excluding the obligatory breaks at Junction, Juniper and Lower Parking Lot. It was also another "Bring your car to Diablo"-Day, and noticeable number of cyclists, apparently also getting ready for Oct 4.

Sunday:
Rest day, lawn mowing and mental preparation for the Labor Day Ride.

Monday:

Labor Day Ride with TBV and Dave F, Fairfax - Nicasio - Tomales - Pt. Reyes Station - Nicasio - Fairfax; 4:10h, 73.5 miles, avg. 17.6 mph. Only Dave B remarked being sore the next day.

Checkpoints:
Cheese factory: 16.2mls - 0:59h,
Tomales: 37.3mls - 2:13h,
50.0mls - 2:52h,
Pt.Reyes St: 54.0mls - 3:05h
60.0mls - 3:26h,
70.0mls - 3:59h,
back in Fairfax: 73.5mls - 4:10h

Tuesday:

Little tired this morning. Tried to make list of excuses to avoid the lunch ride, but then decided to man up and go: Coyote Point and back, 1:00h, 18.4 miles, with Bill.

Wednesday:

Spin class, 1 hour; actually no class and just spin, because instructor Elaine was out sick. Additional hardship: spinning to music of Cirque Du Soleil is only for the toughest.

Thursday:

Late lunch ride to Sawyer Camp Trail and back, 1:02h, 14.8 miles, with TBV. It was hot and legs felt like crap.

Friday:

Did I say rest day ? Happy Friday was celebrated with cheeseburgers and Stella at the usual joint.

Total: 134.8 miles, 9:19h.
