CX Practice Sessions are done

The last session of Trashmore CX practice went down last night.
There were only 5 of us out there when conditions simulated the most ideal cross weather without rain. It was about 50 degrees with winds gusting to 26mph. That and the very bumpy terrain caused for quite the session.
Everybody showed up at the newly appointed time of 5:15pm (due to lack of sunlight) and ready to roll. The barriers were brought out and we came up with a plan of just knocking out as many laps as we could or wanted to till it got dark. The most laps I've ever done in a row during practice was 3. But on this night I ended up doing 5! I wanted to quit after 2, but somehow fought the demons and kept going and at a decent clip. I stopped once after 3 to take a layer of but it was only a few seconds. Everybody agreed that it was the hardest they'd ever experienced there. The wind was insane!
Afterwards, some of us ran a big lap around the park, and threw in some big hill repeats.

I certainly hope a lot of you benefited from these practice runs. I enjoy having people to workout with and push me to not lallygag!

Any ideas on what to do for Tuesday evenings?

Speaking of evenings, see you all at the norfolk contes 6pm for the wed night ride to, thru, and from ipswich on cx bikes (or mtb).

And don't forget all about bikes (7:30pm) chesapeake on cx bikes (or mtb) for another great group ride.

All rides will require front light beam, tail light, and of course a helmet. Post ride beer is always nice and graciously accepted.

See you out there!
