What a fun and demanding 9 days it has been. This moment is bittersweet for me. I can’t deny that this has been my hardest Tour over the last three years. I struggled with a nice cold and mild fever half way through the tour. It was fun, challenging, and humorous at times. The exhaustion is very significant however.
I big thanks to all my family and friends who made a donation. I managed to raise 210 dollars. I was hoping for more, but this is more than I raised last year. Also, a big thanks to David McQuillan for putting these videos together and inspiring us on the tour. Our indoor training would be so boring without the inspiration that the Sufferfest provides. A big Bravo Zulu to all the riders that finished the tour or made the attempt.
Here are my totals for the 9 day tour to include the three spin classes I taught during the tour.
Stats: TSS 1060, Indoor miles 261, and 13 hours 46 minutes on the bike.
I can’t wait to test my Functional Threshold Power in 10 to 12 days. Then it is back to 6 more weeks of sweet spot tempo work under my new threshold. I am considering finding a spot in my schedule for another ToS around May to try and push up my fitness again. These big blogs of Suffering really add an extra level to your fitness.
