Vomit

Postby toolonglegs » Mon Aug 10, 2009 4:50 am

So glad it was raining in todays race today...why...well yes it does keep me cool,yes I do like difficult conditions...but best of all it washes off the vomit!...I threw up over myself about 10 times today,something didn't sit well in my tummy...they were just mouth size burps but they were chunky :lol: !.
So to the race...I thought it was going to be flat today...but it wasn't :roll: ...18 laps of torture!...a total war of attrition,of the 80 who started only about 30-40 finished and I so didn't think I would be one of them.Didn't place (20th?) but was very happy with my performance...only got dropped once but managed to get back on :D ...I must have looked like a tit rolling to the front for the hardest climb every lap but it allowed me to get up to the top without hammering myself by dropping back thru the bunch but not out the back!.
And check out the numbers! :D .
Race time 2h.08m.12s. 36.7kmph av....norm power for entire race 350w
Peak 5 min norm power 442w
Peak 10 min norm power 416w
Peak 20 min norm power 387w
Peak 60 min norm power 374w :D :D :D
Cheers Coach :wink: .

I've been known to have a quiet moment on the side of the road by myself, but have only once succumbed while still on the bike.

60+ km/h on the Magic mile (near loftus coming back from waterfall). Not exactly safe to stop, so over my shoulder it went. Luckily I was in a little 4 person breakaway off the front of the peleton and had just rolled to the back. Managed to come away unsoiled, but got dropped in the process. Was feeling pretty good that day, so not sure what happened, but probably involved attacking and excessive spinning in 50x12 (my biggest gear :(). Recovered quickly and still enjoyed the rest of the ride.

I going to have to seriously HTFU to approach an actual on-bike vomit. I've had a couple of cooldown near-vomit experiences after some big efforts, but no actual spillage.

You could, however, become legendary if you take up the beetroot juice. How much fear could you put into your competitors if it looked like you barfed blood and still beat them :twisted:

but really, that's rubbish. We get none of it because the choices are illusory.

I actually may do one at the end of the month...just for the numbers...no chance of a win as there will be so many fully kitted TT rigs there it wouldn't be funny... they love spending their money on bikes here!....one day I hope to hold 400w av power for 20 minutes...30w better than my best ever...so maybe that day is coming!.
...or maybe I will find a crit :oops:
