the legs are just done this wk. saturday's power session followed by sunday's 3-4hr mtb was just what i was looking for, but been tough to get 2hrs/day this week with the legs sluggish and tight. but, it's good to be back into hard training with goals on the horizon. having the legs feel like dogshit is part of the ritual... and i've managed to get the planned 2hrs/day, just been riding real easy, with the occasional sprint for a red light...

night ride tomrrow with Barry, Andy and the dog, looking fwd to it - hoping the legs snap-out of this 3-day funk they've been in. to me, these goat-hill technical trails are weight sessions - short blasts of power... winter's back, but shit, temps in the 20's is nothing! we escaped the snow, we escaped the -10 degree days and missed only one wk of night riding since daylight savings time!

How far can the dog go?
I ran my poor little guy a little too far once (don't have a computer on my MTB) and he was limping for days... but then again so was I.
Great blog!

in the winter the dog can literally run forever on technical singletrack (our avs is only 5-6mph). when temps get over 50 or if trails are fast fireroads/carriage rds, she can't keep-up. feel bad leaving her home, but it's for her own good.

thanks for checking-out the ramblings!
