Blast from the past

My wife was getting ready for a garage sale this Saturday when she found these two posters that I saved from my college racing days at Clemson University. I was a big follower of the principles laid out in Eddie Borysewicz’s book “Bicycle Road Racing”. One of the things that he recommends doing at the end of every season is to make a poster for the upcoming year with a box for every single day of the year.

The week to end all weeks was a 504.8 mile week Oct 14-20 (Monday-Sunday). I raced the Michellin Classic on Sat/Sun Oct 12-13 and then had a 504.8 mile week to end out the 1996 season. Check out these rides for that week:

Mon 10/14 – 25 miles easy
Tue 10/15 – 107 miles (first time to ride to Highlands, NC and back from Clemson)
Wed 10/16 – 54 miles
Thur 10/17 – 35 miles
Fri 10/18 – 38 miles
Sat 10/19 – 200 miles (to Brasstown Bald and back)
Sun 10/20 – 45.8 miles

Total mileage: 504.8 miles!

Other highlights are listed below and visible in the pics, too:

  • Assault on Mt Mitchell 1995 – 21st place
  • Morning resting heart rate of 36bpm
  • Low weight of 115 lbs on March 18th, 1995
  • A ride with the comment “fell-on-ice”
  • NC/SC state TT 40k in 1:00:08 on August 25th, 1996
  • My “pass-out on the bike” crash at UGA on April 20th, 1996

I left the house just under 30 hours ago and ridden 311 miles with well over 32,000 feet of climbing (the ibike under reports gain even more than the 1000). Easiest climb to get home. Plus my dead Garmin 800 still crashes every time I try to boot it up, presumably trying to load the in-progress #everesting 237 miles and 28,000 feet in. Thankfully I was using my Garmin 1000 to silence all the doubters who question the accuracy of my 800 and somehow trust the 1000 data because it's lower and that somehow makes it more accurate. Does anyone know how I can retrieve the file? Summit #everesting #fizik #stravaproveit just before the manatees.
