We’re into the darkest four weeks of the year. It also happens to be relatively cold out there so we’re going to get smart and cut back on the wind chill factor… here’s this weeks plans:
Tuesday, Dec. 10th – 6:30pm departure from Club Sport. Fremont to Grimmer to PPP to Pine and then up and down Sabercat and Pine. Yes, descending increases the wind chill factor but when repeating our climbs on Sabercat and Pine we will spend more time climbing than descending. There you have it!
Thursday, Dec. 12th – 6:15pm start of paceline work at Eureka and Stevenson. 10 lap paceline together and moderate until the last lap, when folks can crank it up if they like. Two technique sprints. Ten laps tempo, two sprints, ten laps tempo, two sprints, cool-down into the 8pm hour. Unless you are racing cross this is the time of year to ride tempo. Not too fast, not slow. Not blowing up, not talking the whole time. Use team tactics (drafting) to equalize the workout for varying abilities. Cross racers can shoot off the front and lap us.
Thanks again for taking the time to meet last Saturday and for the skills. It’s good to see you taking the time off the bike to get knowledgeable about your abilities and team. We will continue to work on the bike skills in the coming Thursday nights.
