On Trainer - tapering before the weekend ride
Spinervals Recharge. Taking it easy before race. Will probably do the other recovery workout tomorrow. Want to keep my legs loose by spinning, not working too hard. Overall, good solid workout, burned 754 calories and got those legs moving!
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!
