I drove the SavageMan bike course today. WOW! Stacy’s words were “that’s going to be F**KING hard“. Big descents and VERY technical. Westernport wall looks so intimidating I hope I got the right gearing. Yeah baby! hope you feel my pain tomorrow. My bib is #443.

Really, my big worry is the temp tomorrow morning 55 degrees at 9am and 65 degrees at noon. So the challenge is dressing correctly and just dressing in general. I never had to wear so much cloths in a tri.

Thanks ALL I’ll pass your condolences on to Stacy.  When people pass away close to us she gets all weird like she next.  She comes from a big family so it seems every year we are dealing with this.

Late day ride on the Felt. The ride was hills and wind my favorite combination. Let me back up just a bit. I volunteer at a local Tri this morning. Was fun watch friends race. I was helping load the swim buoys and weights and I think I pulled a muscle in my left shoulder. It bothered me for a bit then I forgot about it when I go home. Well it started hurting real bad on my ride at 10 mile after climbing Lambs Gap a nice 1 mile with avg 18% grade. On the way out to Turtle Ridge Rd I decided to just climb it X1 time. There were plenty of other climbs along the way and back. Some thoughts creped through my head; I don't think I fully recovered from my 12 milers yesterday, My shoulder hurts badly and I really didn't realize that SavageMan was next weekend, OOP's. I finished today's ride thinking I am well prepared for the climbs at SavageMan and will rest up a bit.

Today's nets: 4659 ft of climbing and 3199 calories burned.
