Oh my. I rode my bike a lot at hard efforts. I ate way too much Mexican food. I sat in the car a lot (though with my boy teammates for a lot of it, so that was good).
Tue: Park ride
Wed: AM swim/PM-Racing at Velodrome (drive 1 hour each way)
Thur: tired in AM after late night; no training
Fri: coach swim/weights/drive to Velodrome
to watch racing; drink beer; eat tacos from the taco truck
at 11:00 PM; home really late
Sat: teammate calls early--let's go to velodrome to session (one hour drive again each way); attend morning session; attend afternoon session
; go eat Mexican food
with track dude and teammate; drive home with stop at bike shop; fall asleep on couch about 8PM
Sun: phone rings at 4:55 AM, KEJ is outside with SnackieChan; put SC back to sleep on couch; clm goes back to sleep until 7:30; clm and SC go do laundry and get bagels and coffee and hot chocolate. Oops. SC's hot chocolate turns out to be a MOCHA! SC: "This chocolate tastes like coffee." SC to mom later: "I LIKE COFFFEE!" Hang up wet laundry and load up truck and clm and SC drive out to Livermore (an hour the other way)
to race finish where KEJ and other teammates are (including Ariel, whose husband is president of team). Watch rest of team finish really hard road race (up over a mountain). Drive SC and two Mice boys into town and everyone meets for lunch. Yes, you guessed it...MEXICAN!
Dessert is at the Donut King. Drive SC and two Mice boys back to San Jose (yet another hour, but south and west)
to their car while KEJ drives two Mice gals the same place. Give SC back to KEJ. We all stop at Starbucks. SC doesn't get coffee this time. Drive home to SF (yet another hour).
Jump in shower, dress, walk over hill to North Beach and meet SC, KEJ and our friend Janine for dinner. NOT MEXICAN! (Italian)
Mon: Up at 5:00 AM so I can leave to DRIVE AN HOUR (and a half)
to Morgan Hill for a crit. Warm up, start crit, have bad feeling about crit and drop out 10 minutes in. Go do my own ride of an hour. Come back and find two Mice boys and we go to lunch....MEXICAN food
. Go back to race site and hang out all day and watch races until it's time to go to velodrome. DRIVE to velodrome and do 2 hour workout
. About 7 teammates there. Post-workout, buy gas and 5 of us go to dinner....MEXICAN FOOD
(same place as Saturday). Drive the hour back to SF
. Unpack car. Hit bed and fall asleep.
This week--racing Wed/Fri/Sat/Sun. All on the bike. All involving a drive. I need to move south about an hour.
