I caught a cold in October and a second and then a third. I am over them now but for at least a month I had a really nasty cold that had a large impact on training. At least it is a long way to spring and the big rides but overall I am behind.
In November I rode 350 miles and trained 26 hours. That is only 30 miles less than last year but last year I trained 36 hours. This November I burned 10,216 Kcal and TSS of 1053. Both comparable to last year.
This week was Thanksgiving week and I managed to ride 118 miles, train 8 hours, and burn 3000Kcal.
I mentioned last update that I was experimenting with a nine day cycle instead of the usual 7. I can't make it work. I have too many things locked to a specific day (e.g. babysitting every Wednesday).
It is 26 weeks to the Ride the Rockies (won't know if I make the cut until February) and 28 weeks to the Bicycle Tour of Colorado http://www.bicycletourcolorado.com/ .
