Finished up my first real work week of training with a Flagstaff/Magnolia climb fest. Flag is tough but Magnolia is an insult. For folks out there who do not know this climb, Google search the Mike Horgan Hill climb hosted by Boulderracing.com. It is an impossibly long and steep mountain pass which starts from Canyon and goes straight up. It borders on ridiculous. Dragging my large carcass up that thing is insulting. I ended up climbing OK and within myself with another guy and the guy working with us this season. It was an OK test and I know what work needs to be done still, but was phenomenal to feel OK after all the sick. A good first week back to being a cyclist again.
Mom's day today and the b-fast in bed was duly made for my lady in addition to a surprise of an Apple iPod Shuffle for my running-crazy lady.
