More today on Andy Potts from Inside Triathlon and Competitor Sports. Plus a great article by Matt Fitzgerald on indoor training. Some very tasty details on his training, especially indoors. Corrections deportment: Andy does more than an hour a day on the CompuTrainer. I do considerably less. That will change.
Also is a wonderful list of cycling RULES from Velominati. I am especially fond of #74:
Cycle computers should be simple, small and mounted on the stem. Forgo the data and ride on feel; little compares to the pleasure of riding as hard as your mind will allow. If you are not a Pro or aspire to be one, then you don’t need a SRM or PowerTap. To paraphrase BSNYC, an amateur cyclist using a power meter is like hiring an accountant to tell you how poor you are. As for Garmins, how often do you get lost on a ride? They are bulky, ugly and superflous. Cycle computers should be simple, small and mounted on the stem. And preferably wireless.
Lastly today, as I take a long postponed trip into the Emerald City today in preparation for Hawaii, is this terrific short on the 1962 TdF. PLEASE note the paparazzi changing film in camera while on back of scooter. Folks I will tell you that this is a feat. I have changed batteries, lens', digital tape and auto-focus many times, but the thought of actually rolling out 35m film into the take up reels while riding makes me more than a little nervous. They, however, make it looks easy, as do the riders.
More later if anything exciting happens in Seattle today. Carpe Diem.
