3/1 4:45 PM Hains Point Fun Spin
POSTED: 2/28/12 10:17 PM

Given the lovely forecast, I'm planning my schedule on Thursday to include a fun spin at Hains Point. I'm expecting to be there at 4:45, and I will spin at a medium pace on short loops until right around 6.

Please join if you can! I will be in full DC Tri get-up so I will be easy to find. Just bike backwards around the point until you find me, or shoot me a text.

Also: please note: I will be leading a Thursday morning workout at Hains Point starting in a few weeks (probably 3/22). This will be a "B" ride to Patrick's insanely fast "A" ride, but I plan to work between 18 and 22 mph.

Stay tuned! Hope to see you on Thursday.

I'll be there around 4:30 too! I have a threshold/race pace workout on my schedule if anyone is interested. Won't be much talking going on but always nice to suffer with someone else. ;) Here's the workout:

After warming up 15-20 min. do 6-10 x 10 min. above threshold w/last 5 min. getting up to zone 5. 5 min. recovery

Awesome, Court! I will ride backwards when I get there and see if I can keep up for a lap or two. I will ride my road bike. I know how to draft. :)

Who else wants to enjoy a 70-degree day on a bike???

Anyone up for same Bat time, same Bat location this week? Some of us have a threshold test on Saturday so will not be going above Zone 2, but biking outside sounds like a dream....

A couple of us have talked about taking off work Thursday afternoon and heading up to Poolsville and back for a 60 miler. Nothing fast just need to get some good outside time on the TT bike before san juan next week.

Thinking 10:00AM or so.

Gotta cover some meetings for Boss Lady on Thursday, sadly. But I'll be at HP for anyone else who can't take off!

Cheers,
Abby

I'm in for an afternoon spin at HP - 5 - 6:15ish for me. Also looking to keep it light, given the duathlon on Saturday.

It's tempting. After riding against those headwinds last week I'm guessing they are really gonna blow today...pun intended :)

Watch those winds out there- you might end up in the water.

I braved the tow path at lunch for a run. It was infested with gnats. This is going to be a very buggy spring and summer.

Good luck at Haines Point. I think I would be blown into the river on my new custom carbon tri bike : )

Forgot I had MoCo Happy Hour tonite so rode closer to home today. Awesome day out but damn it was windy.
