I have been reading through Arnie Baker’s book, Altitude Climbing Endurance Training, which is written by a guy who more or less specializes in training for the Death Ride. (Well, okay, he also coaches Olympic athletes and other rabble :), but he wrote an entire friggin’ book about training for the Death Ride.) I think I will strike out on my own next year, and train following his advice. This year I’m in good enough shape to follow his training regimen; last year I really wasn’t. It’s a pretty tough training plan, though, so I’m thinking carefully about whether I want to put in that much effort. I don’t want to burn out on cycling, and I do want to have time for some of my other hobbies.
