I was out there today watching this guy riding a fixed gear. It seemed to me that his lap times of around 6:40 were really cooking!

My question is, is that really moving for a 3 mile loop?
What are some of your times around this course? He smoked my fat ass!!

Every week!!!manofsteel

Been doing the Tues-thursday thing for 3 mos now. Each day I've trained I've been able to add a whole HALF lap. Sounds pathetic but it really isn't til one has tried to hang on to the fast pace. So I'm up to six laps which is a huge accomplishment for many. If you're just starting off, here's the low-down. Wait 3 to 4 laps til the pack settles into their "pace." Use one of the hills to jettison yourself into the group. By that time, everybody's tired while you've just freshly joined in. A great tool if you want to know how much harder you have to train! manofsteel
