First half went great then Janet forgot to "start" her MapMyRide on her phone and slammed into the back of me. She went down hard but I managed to stay up. So hard it knocked my back tire off and crushed my bottle cages. SAG took her in with a hurt elbow and we agreed with our daughter having the truck that I could finish the race. She ended up at the ER with a broken elbow.

Warm down:

Nothing really. Biked to the hospital to find my wife.

Event comments:

Good hilly ride! Not much of a fan fair when you finish. In fact nothing at all at the finish. They were serving pizza, fruit, drinks, etc in front of the high school when done.

By becoming more aware of your pedal stroke, you can choose to manipulate where and how you activate your leg muscles as your foot traces the circular trajectory at the cranks.

I started riding this spring with the Carnac shoes on Look pedals (with plenty of float). About five minutes into a ride I get sharp pain on the outer edge of my feet, just behind the pedal.
