On the Trainer
Soooo, after having to work late last night, decided to make up for it and do a longer bike. Did the Spinerval's 90 min Totally Time Trial, after some warmup sprints, has 4X15 min intervals simulating a 40K time trial. Wow, 1900 calories burned and I am exhausted... Haven't been able to sleep when I've gone to bed the last couple nights, hoping this ensures that doesn't happen again!
This year, like last year, I will be riding for Mary Payton's Miracle - My friend Steve Kogos from Trigators informed me that his friend Joe's daughter, Mary Payton, was diagnosed a number of years back with Late Infantile Batten Disease. This is a disease with no cure, however, there are special experimental (and extremely expensive) treatments which have shown some significant signs of success! In order to assist with the costly treatments and research, Mary Payton's Miracle was created to raise money to find a cure, hopefully in time to save little Mary Payton as well as the many others affected by this terrible disease!
