Life Without Lupus - Wheels for a Life without Lupus

What a weekend and week so far - after 7 1/2 hours of training on Saturday and Sunday, I can see real progress. Although most of it was done in bucolic Central Park, the training was mostly hammer-down in order to push my power. What fun it was to train there, again, after so many years of knowing every crack and bump on the entire 6.2 mile loop. And, it was added pleasure to train with my friends, Amy and Tom. We were amongst the few riders out there, but it was a blast. Coincidentally, on Monday, I was in Colorado Springs for business but as it turns out, it is also the home of Carmichael Training Systems whom I use as a coach to help me through the preparation for this record attempt. When you walk in the door, you are met with a near life-size photo of Lance Armstrong, their most infamous athlete-in-training. Lindsay Hyman, athlete extraordinare and thesis-bound exercise physiologist expert, has been of great help and support to me. We did some threshold testing to benchmark my progress, and it seems that the training is working. Bravo!

Tom and I were thrilled to be a (very small) part of your training. We were impressed and humbled by how strong you are on the bike. Can't wait for what 4 more months of training brings!
