Did my first race of the season, and first race back from cancer on Saturday. It was a mixed bag.
I didn’t warm up enough and, for only a 30min race I was hurting at the start. But, I went to the front and tried to sit tight in the first 10 wheels. Did this successfully for 15min or so before I completely blew up. The race splintered from the git-go. Lots of guys going off the back from almost the first lap. Lots of riders pulled. Started drifting back and found a small group I just rode in with. With all the intervals and so forth of the program (I’ve done SSB and LV Build) I thought I’d have more horsepower but, I have to factor in age and that I’m still recovering from chemo/cancer. Hell, I still have cancer.
- warm up a bit better.
- be more conservative at the start of the race
- I was really hurting between heart rates of 175-180 beats per minute. Need more exposure there.
I’m gonna blog about it more later today.
Thanks Trainer Road guys!
