Either you've gained 20lbs or I am way behind in w/kg.

I weighed in at a whopping 64kg this morning. I know, I'm fat :p

Today's ride on the rollers was full of fail. Failed on my 2*20s and cut the ride short at like 1:20. I'm so done with riding inside. I can't even handle it anymore. I hate the winter so much. Hopefully I can get outside tomorrow. Next year for winter break I'm shipping myself off to somewhere warm.

I wish you'd asked; I would have told you not to go to JH. There shouldn't be colleges in places with winters.

Transfer to Stanford, we have a lot of cyclists here and very few people get murdered.

I keep asking myself why I didn't go to a school that is in a warmer climate. I'm a dumbass.
You can be the strongest guy in the field but if you don't know how to use it, when to use it, and have the b*lls to use it at the right time, you'll lose.

My parents wanted me to go to their alma mater, Cornell, and I got in. But I really didn't want to be cold.

I am there from time to time.  Good cycling and racing around Ithaca and Cornell.

I managed to get back on the rollers for a second session for a total of 2:55 for the day :)


Still a little bummed I failed on the 20s, but I guess stuff just happens. My norma hr for those is around 165 and today it was up to 172 after only 10 minutes. My heart actually hurt (rather than my lungs or legs), it was weird.


Tomorrow I'm going to brave the crappy roads to get in my last force hill repeats. Then next week I'll start doing 2 threshold sets a week (2*20 and zci) and one vo2 session. 1 month until racing, can't wait.

Training? What's that? Been dieting a bit for a role in a play and was down to 55kg as of this morning. Based off of the PM numbers a similarly sized friend was seeing on a recent ride that would put me at nearly 4 W/kg, which can not possibly be correct.

Missed my last two workouts due to play practice, but have been doing intervals and some aerobic base for about six hours a week. Not a ton, but trying to get my deferal to MIT turned into an acceptance is kicking my ass. No matter what I'll be in better shape than I was last year for the start of the season :thumbsup:, so I'm happy with that

for what duration? ftp? If so, that is definitely believable, that is only 220w which isn't really that high (that is actually my ftp right now, although I'm a fatty).

FTP, although my time for Ventoux would put me above that by about 40w if my back of the napkin math is right. It seems high given I can only hang with the A-class guys here for 50-60km out of 120, the rollers and my time at the front kills me when the pace hits the high 30s and low 40s.

That sounds like an anaerobic issue as well as energy managment rather than FTP. All that FTP really tells you is what you can do for a steady effort. Throw in surges and your anaerobic capacity and recovery start to become big factors.

Getting back on track. Hour and a half on rollers. I'm going to try to get outside tomorrow morning. Roads were clear today, but it's still cold and it's snowing a little bit, so it may be indoors again.
Do you think we're gonna make it? / I don't know unless we try / you could sit here scared to move / or we could take them by surprise

You have a powermeter on your commuter bike? Nice.
