Start.

I signed up for the 2010 Tour of the Battenkill last week.  The romance of such suffering, in the spirit of a european classics race was too much to resist. 

Over the next 15 weeks or so, I'll follow a prescribed training plan laid out by my lovely wife.  Although practicing clinical medicine now, she has a masters degree in kinesiology buried back in there somewhere.  She likes to bring it out from time to time, and my hair-brained idea to participate in this race was just enough. 

Tomorrow is a 30 mi training ride, nothing too killer.  Hope to bring back some hard data and RPE perspective (look it up) as well.

I like it, wish I could be a part of this...perhaps next year!

Very, very cool. If the wife's training doesn't kill you, you might actually have fun up in New York. Of course, odds are that the training will kill you...
