OK, it's time to train

I feel a renewed sense of motivation. We saw temps in the 50's yesterday for our road ride in the Gaps, and......what felt like 65 today on the road south of the city!! It was knee warmers, but I brought my arm warmers along just in case..but I didn't really need them. Yesterday's ride was with my wonderful husband and the famous Mike Livingston. I swear Eddie wasn't even working hard and he schooled us both. Mike was feeling much better today when we rode with a guy named Travis and another guy John, who is putting in CRAZY hours on the bike, in prep for TR this year. He is riding over 35 hours this week, and 42 next week!! And, all at base pace. That is insane.

Unfortunately, with the GA SS race coming up way too soon, it can't be a race I focus on..apparently I will be training right through it. With Cohutta 100 also coming up fast, I foresee a lot of climbing in my near future. I really haven't been up to the mountains at all lately, and i'm really anxious to get up there. 55nine training camp is on the horizon :-)

My sparkly new Unit isn't here yet....I'm hoping santa delivers it this week!

Mr. Odea was doing mtn repeats..Was a BAD BAD day...But, like I said.. I was fast going down the mountain:)It was closer to 75 than 65 yesterday afternoon, plus the happy legs returned...
