wells report, training update, race plans
Scott, Nathan, Joe and my self trundled up to wells ave on Sunday. Meeting up with Brendan H. The weather seemed warm as I walked the dogs earlier in the morning. Once we arrived at wells it was raw, damp and chilly. I was under orders to refrain from racing as I required an emergency rest week per Mr Apples. My plan was to hide in the pack and try to have a nice even tempo style work out. So according to plan, I "sat in" which is kind of boring, but my good friend Joe B had the same plan, so we kept our each other company.
Today after work I went out to the reservoir and completed this work out; 2.5 hours. 4x6 minute efforts high zone 3. 4 minute rest between. The weather was great, I felt strong, It's so fun to go fast.
Lynn has been loving her Orbea, riding in the woods every chance she gets. Her first race of the season will be offroad, this Saturday, the Hop Brook Dam. Then she plans to race Chris Hinds in the afternoon!
I will be racing Chris Hinds Saturday, cat4 in the morning and the 35 plus in the afternoon. I'm also planning on wells ave on Sunday.
Team Sam plans on racing rain or shine, so should you!
