It seems like when I'm home I never have enough time. I try to cram in all the stuff I miss out on while I'm gone and sure enough the day gets away from me. Rude and I stayed up at Cascade last night and I'm not sure if it's because I know it's high up here or what but I always seem to wake up out of breath when I stay someplace higher then Durango. I can go from sea level up to Durango with no problems. If I go any higher then that though I feel it as soon as I walk up stairs or wake up in the middle of the night.
Tomorrow Rude and I are staying up here all day and not going into town. We're going to do my favorite ride, Molas to Cascade and maybe check out the STXC at Purgh tomorrow night. If we are really ambitious we'll probably jump the Cascade pools. Other then that it's just RandR.
Snoodle did some hyperox intervals with Crawford at Dr. Andrea's office, Performance Cardiology, today. They have got some new technology which allows you to train at sea level here in Durango. You are hooked up to an oxygenated breathing apparatus and can bust out huge numbers. I am doing it next week but I have heard of guys hitting the highest heart rates they have ever seen and big power too. I guess you're muscles quit before you are limited by breathing. I'm really excited to check it out since that is the one thing we have been missing here, a place to work on power. There is no place close by to get to a lower elevation. You can drive 3 hours and only drop 2,000 ft.
Meg's parents are in town tonight on their way back from Mexico. They made it back into the U.S. last night and stayed in Tucson. Winston is enjoying visiting with Chester and Eva while they're here. Bob forgot he had the bikes on the roof of the van when they were driving under a bridge in Bucerias. The Specialized suffered only minor damage but the early 90's Klein busted the tab off the fork where the axle sits in. It was a really cool bike with a neon orange and pink fade.
Well it's time for me to go to bed. I wonder what Winstons' doing right now.....
