    Dagnabbit, my Tuesday evenings are booked until 31 July. If you keep this going, I can be a regular in Aug/Sep.

    Oh, and a 5pm start works better for me -- national security depends on it and all that.

    A 5pm start means I may be able to make a few of these.

    With a wave of the hand...5pm every freakin' Tuesday unless someone says uncle.

    We had a good practice, maybe a little brief on the grass but we did get in a solid 1/2 hrs. chasing each other around figure 8 cones, tight fast circles on baseball diamonds and a lap around the park that included stairs...good times. The pain was there but so was the heat so we hit the road for an hr. of pedaling. This is not that.

    Roll Call. PM me if you will be there for sure I'll look for you.
    Same as last week.
    1. Warm up
    2. "Running of the cones" + laps with stairs
    3. 1 hr. road
    If anyone has a portable barrier setup. Bring it.

    So, I use the iphone app and never thought to look in here. The inaugural week was great fun, though we'll need a few more to turn it up on the hot laps. 5 will work for me this week, but if its thinly attended, I might petition for a return to 4pm. Come on out!
    This is my substitute for pistol and ball. With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the bike.

    Brothers, it's going to be 100F at practice time.
    I'm nuts not stupid.

    This is CX right? Suffering is part of the game. I'm down, even if for an abbreviated skills practice.

    That said, this morning's 1.5mi commute was an absolute sweat-bath at 7am. I leave it up to you, TT, my trainer is set up for 3x15's should we decide to defer till next week.

    Are we on today? I'll still need to confirm with the sitter if it's 5, but am in if y'all are.

    Speaking for myself, you'll still be more fit. Sounds like you are doing the gentlemanly thing.

    Come on out, everyone. It should be suitably epic with another Derecho heading our way!
