Been down here in south Florida all week, and having a great time riding my ass off. Five days of riding so far and 231 miles. I'm very pleased because I've banked enough base miles in the basement back in New England that I can go out and do lots of FT work without any overuse issues. It's been great. The bike I rented fits like a glove, luckily- the seat is at it's highest point- it's a LOOK 595 and I've really connected with this bike. Brought my Powertap wheel down with me and the workouts have been successful and free of structural pain. I even did a 60 miler the other day in less than 3 hours. Of course the roads are pancake flat, but my rides are all out and back and it's very windy down here. I am expecting to top off 300 + miles in the next couple of days, but it's okay if I fall short by a little bit. I'll be going into February ready to do some more specific LT work and start on some zone 5 stuff too. looking forward to a really awesome 2012 racing season!
