I'm in hell...

An hour of indoor strength intervals last night. Even with as bad as I feel I found I skated through this one....and it was a Spinervals DVD. I typically bomb out on those. It was constant 50X12 (sorry guys, I ride a compact) for the whole thing. 1-legged drills. Seated power. Sprints, off bike lunges....

.... and lung cookies. I hate being sick.

Still hacking this morning, but making it. I needed this to get me ready, at least mentally, for Saturday. Colochange posted a video of the course and it looks like one hill will definitely kill me and I get to climb it 10 times unless I get pulled. I had nightmares about it last night.

For some reason I seem to put on quite a bit of weight right after events only to have it shed off the following week. Example: Before DD last weekend I was 176. When I got home I was 183 or 184. Then slowly each day I just whittled it off. Today...176. Sure it's normal fluctuation and most likely water being restored and then burned off, but it's just weird. Nothing like going on an epic ride and gaining weight at the end and not seeing the results for a week or so.

Oh...and I drastically reduced my caffiene intake starting yesterday as well. Boo.

BTW - WHY IN THE HELL AM I RIDING A TRAINER IN AUGUST!!!!! Trainers suck.

E-bay a Kurt Kinetic. Hands down. Expensive, but near cost on e-bay and by far the best design. I have the recalled POS pictured.
