Final Approach...The Season Is Here!BigLeadOutGuy

Hello all!
I haven't posted for sometime 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!

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.

Just curious. If you're racing next week are you in the South or California?

Oh, and good luck. Let us know how it goes.

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.

Thanks BLGallervite

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.
