Muscle Breakdown... brought to you by Spinervals!
Got up early, ok, I woke up early and wasted about 30 min trying to convince myself to actually get up, but then went downstairs and started the Spinervals workout. Felt pretty good, got in a nice workout filled with acceleration sets (4 sec on/off at high gear/cadence), isometric squats, super sprints and 2 min tempo intervals. Betsy came down about 20 min in to do a run, so I did the rest from memory, so I don't know for sure if I did the workout to a T, but at least the sets were correct. Glad to get something in, since I knew today would be busy one.
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!
