I have been off the bike for a while, and quite busy with work. Work (not the fun, cycling-guide type), for me, involves sitting for long hours in front of my computer at my home. This fact, coupled with the one in the first sentence, has produced a lethargy that I will happily sit through, knowing it is a temporary, pre-turbo trainer, event. Here is a representation of what I feel like. What I look like is not too far behind.

Except your were looking pretty strong on the bike this afternoon, if my heart rate meter was any indication. Can you say “red zone”.
I didn’t have my heart monitor on so I didn’t know I was redlining. If I had, I probably would have had a heart attack. Great ride, though, thanks for the call!
If tapering is key to better performance, you’re going to rock.
I’ve never had a problem with the ‘recovery’ portion of your training programs. I think you’re right.
It must be nice to know that you can always catch up on outdoor maintenance in December. I’m taking advantage of the 20 plus degrees week after week heading into Thanksgiving weekend. Indoor season a just around the corner.
Coach said it was freezing in Calgary. Count yourself lucky!
That would explain all his indoor activity. Coach, I feel for you!
change your underpants ,sell that “billy no mates” indoor trainer ,and join a club and..have a great winter
I rode with the Nimes guys for about 10 min yesterday and managed to piss off two cars. I’m not sure I like the group mentality that develops…in a group.
