My Bike Misses Me

When a long time cyclist cuts back the hours significantly and picks up the time on the weights, something odd happens. Efficiency on the bike isn't too bad and power is fine too, but endurance takes a major hit! In the first race of the year, I found myself in the winning break, only to sputter late in the race and lose over seven minutes in around 18 miles. Huh?! Really? Seven minutes?! Yup, endurance at race pace is gone. I was helping power it along effectively with eventual winner Sam Krieg, but lost everything with a lap to go. It went straight from being fine and powering along to nothing left in a really big hurry. Typically the only thing that would do such a thing to me is a bonk, but I only had a partial bonk. The majority of the problem was just a lack of big glycogen stores, mixed with overworked hamstrings that I now know haven't gotten enough work in the gym. Time to hit the bike a bit more.
