So my bastard team mates went to the Cat 4 race at Ephrata and just crushed it. 3 of them in the top ten on each stage and 3 of the top 5 overall. We're going to have to have a little chat about them going to and doing really well at all of these races that I can't go to. They said there was an Australian guy there who was psychotic fast, he just rode off the front of the road race (stage 1) and stayed away.
DW and I went for a rather spirited ride out to Poolesville yesterday. It was a lot more steady of an effort than last week, just plowing along at tempo pace with a few extended bouts of threshold. It's really an interesting course on which a lot of different strategies might work brilliantly or fail miserably.
Amazingly, the slight head and chest cold I woke up with yesterday was not improved by yesterday's efforts and now I have a full blown chest cold. I haven't so much as sneezed in about a year but now have a cold the week before my favorite race. Super.
