Binge Training

18 Dec


That’s what Lynda Wallenfels calls it. Back-to-back epic training days. I’ve known about Lynda for several years although I’m pretty sure we’ve never formally met. She is as hardcore of a biker as I know. She beat me at the 06 Desert Rampage and later that same year I rode with her for quite a bit of the E50 in Park city. Yes, she beat me there too. I didn’t even finish.

I came across her blog a couple weeks back and noticed she has some epic binge training rides planned for the weekend before my Gooseberry 100k. Her 3rd day looks very similar to what I have planned for the 100k. I think Tasha and I are going to make a go of her camp. At the very least we plan on doing days 1 and 2.

The unsupported nature of the rides she has planned apparently require using a GPS. I must admit I’m intimidated by GPS. I don’t even know what the letters GPS stand for but I now know what Tasha is getting for Christmas. I’m sure she’ll love it.

I’ve never been so excited for a January in my life and yes, I’m still going down on the 19th for the inaugural Gooseberry 100k.

    When are you heading down to map your course? I will be down next week to hit Gooseberry with Jon from Sabrosa. The January ride sounds like great RAWROD training, I was one of the last guys up Murphys last year and need a little revenge.

    Karen- Thanks for stopping by.

    kp- I was trying to get there this week but it looks like I too will be down there next week. What day are you an Jon doing the goose? Maybe we can hook up and do a preview ride of parts of the 100k.

    PS, let me know where your parcel is. I work in the aerial photo business and I may have that area on file if you need it.
