Hope everybody has plans for the feast of Thanksgiving. Me, I am heading back to Algona to hang with the Fam.....watch the Tour mega marathon on OLN.....eat......and get in a bit of bike riding. It will be short live'd, cause I have to high tail it back to Cedar Falls to babysit the shop while people come in and pick out those X-Mas gifts.
Anyone interested in racing across the state in early May?
Today, I went to the YMCA for more cardio. Did a 30 minute brisk walk on the treadmill. Then I followed it up with 2 hours of moderate high speed intervals. These are intervals that go for one song on the radio followed by one song on the radio recovery. This lasts for.....you guessed it....2 hours. Then I hopped on the bike and rode the single track through G.W. on the way home. I am ready to move onto the next phase.
Anyone else want to suffer, while racing across the state?

Pre-season gear and bikes keep showing up at the shop. That is good, cause we need stuff at the shop to sell. People have been coming in hunt'n down those X-Mas gifts, but not buying think we are going to put them on sale the day after T-Day.......right!
