I haven't posted for sometime now..work and training have been getting the better of me. The racing season is upon us...My first race this season is next weekend and I feel totally unready! Ive had some nagging achillies injuries that have kept me training sporadically and had to take off a week here and a week there this winter. Im heathy now but dont feel quite so strong...Hopefully the off season has been better to everyone else than it has been to me.
I wanted to wish everyone good luck and fun racing!
GOOD LUCK =)

|Well as for me. I have logged over 500+ miles this winter in training. I have done some sprints and interval work on hills and some flat terrian. But that considering that I am going to be a 31 yr old going on 32yr old Cat 5 racer. I just started my doing spirnt intervals and intervals( 3 weeks). Hopefully my first race will be in April,if not soon.|

|You might find some helpful tips in my posts below re: tactics. They're located in the "Cat 4 Female New to Racing" thread.
Doesn't matter whether you're a guy or a gal, you don't have to be stronger, just smarter. Cheers, and good luck to you, too.

|Crush 'em at the kilo mark with a powerfull attack developing into a pursuit like effort!
I'll wait for a short to medium steeper the better hill. Or try something where no one expects it and it probably won't stick.
