If Thomas Edison had gone to business school, we would all be reading by larger candles.
We took it early with seven to go. I tried my best to stay out of the wind until the end.
The course takes its toll. These climbs are the hardest. They're not very long, but there aren't any other races I do where my forearms are cramping and my fingers are locking on me by the end. We're using muscles in our bodies that we normally only use when we're doing a field sprint.
I actually felt like I was the best runner today, ... But I had to work twice as hard as these mountain bikers, Ryan, Barry and Geoff, on the descents.
I look for times when I'm producing zero watts. Now I pedal on long descents or in tailwinds. I can do the same training ride in three-and-a-half hours that took me four without a power meter.
