• The last push.

    Original Growler
    This week is the week. The first specific taper for an event all season. That event...the Firecracker 50 Marathon National championships on Friday. Not a whole lot going on in terms of training. Just some light spins and a few light interval sessions to stimulate the system. Got out this AM for 2 hours on some dirt to give the race bike the final shake down. Followed that up by cleaning up a duo of race bikes. Bikes are dialed and ready to roll. Only one little key item awaiting arrival from Germany for the Magura Durin's. Hope it arrives today or tomorrow. Seems US Customs is taking their sweet 'ole time.

    Speaking of dialed, Coach sent over my nutrition and pacing plan for the 50 miler. This should have me set to rip off my fastest time on this 2 lap course. Now it's just a matter of getting out there and doing it.

    Looks like the Pro-open men's race is getting pretty stacked.

    More to come during the week.
