This Sunday at 8am we will meet at Vancouver Lake to rehearse the
physical and mental execution of our next early season race. This
practice and The Jack Frost TT on February 21st is the perfect way
to take the base building training we’ve been doing and get more
specific, and a little more intense. You’ve been gaining strength
these last few months and now it’s time to take it out into the real
world. Consider this rehearsal and this time trial an important part
of your February training plan. Don’t get bogged down by “race”
aspect of either event – it’s really about you getting on your bike
and practicing for the bigger events you’ve got coming up this
season…and shaking off the rust…remembering what it’s like to
feel the wind in your face and go fast!
(There is NO Saturday group workout this weekend. Plan to get
together for this ride on Sunday instead;-)
Meet at the parking lot by 8am to begin warm-up.
Bring trainer (extra if you have more than one)
Dress in layers. Should be a decent morning, but come prepared, warm
ups, arm warms etc.
Warm up is a critical part of this training. Janet will lead us
through the appropriate pre-race protocol to get us ready to go.
First rider off at 9am for a 12m out and back ride.
Bring warm clothes to change into and a snack. We can talk about how
it went for you in conclusion.
