This past weekend I joined forces with Jess and we took on the hills and dales of eastern NY. Janice, basically the heart and soul of NENSA, generously offered us a place to stay and coached us and drove us around and gave us a bike escort on an OD and fed us. Life was pretty cushy. We started with some intense hillbounding in 99% humidity, then we did some skate technique, then we did a strength test. Day two was a wicked long OD (complete with bicycle and then car escort) and then more technique. Then I drove home. And I was tired.
Also of note, I tried a powerbar for the first time since 2001, and it was good! Gone was the peanut-butter-flavored-cardboard I remembered. They were the "energize" powerbars, with fruit concentrate in them, and really, it went down like gummy bears. Which is to say, easily.
