Some legends among us....Gordo, Chuckie V, Justin Daerr, Marilyn McDonald...and the list goes on. And some serious campers
We roll tomorrow at 7:15 (B group) and 7:45 (A group).... and we climb for 20+ miles to 10,000 ft and turn around and come back...gulp! Having no idea which group is right- I am opting for the B group- don't want to be hanging on for dear life on day 1 of camp.
Camp Coaches advice:
1- this is YOUR camp go at your own pace
2- don't try and lose weight- eat to train and train well-
3- water, water, water... and sunscreen
4- when you ride your bike make decisions as if you were in a car- ie: stop signs, lights etc
5- be safe- ride single file and NO ipods
6- major descending tomorrow - tips from Marilyn McDonald (ex pro cyclist and current pro- Triathlete)
- pressure on the outside pedal and inside bar
- determine your speed BEFORE the turn- feather the front brake and use the back and the ride the turn
- look where you want to go NOT where you are going
- descending is a SKILL that CAN be learned by all
1 day a time, pace myself and HAVE FUN! Off to bed..rolling at 6:45 to get to the meeting spot at 7:15.
Just finished making sure my athletes are set for the week! Training plans done- weeks reviewed and off toe bed!
