I'm trying to remember when's the last time I had so much fun training? Maybe just last week I guess... ;)
I'm in Scottsdale right now staying at Krista's house and running my own little training camp here and just am beside myself with how much fun this is!! I'm not sure there's a better place to ride a bike than North Scottsdale in March... and these athletes I have here are meshing so well... it's just awesome.
We did a little meet and greet (ahem, time to drink more coffee) this morning before we took off riding. I knew some people were feeling fairly nervous and it was so nice to be able to say I GET THAT since I just experienced those exact same feelings last weekend... And I am just so psyched to give these guys/gals a similar experience of learning for themselves that they are capable of so much more than they thought they were. :)
It was pretty much like a little Cervelo convention this morning when 5 of us turned up with the same bike.
(They were like, um, you can wash those you know...)
(in no uncertain terms- there might have been an f-bomb- I'm serious when it comes to swimming hard) to STAY ON MY FEET and indeed- she was ripping off 300's at a pace faster than her previous fastest all out sprint 100. Good girl. This is what it looks like after you get done swimming like that...
Anyway, now I feel like I need to curl up in a little ball in a corner somewhere for a few hours. Tomorrow is going to be awesome too. We get to climb out of Bartlett Lake on our bikes... ~14 miles of beautiful desert climbing and we'll all be dressed like a team looking pretty snazzy. I'll get lots of photos!
