Aggressive Start to 2015: Two March Double Centuries Planned, Maybe 3

I’m planning an aggressive training year, because I wish to beat my best effort in the 2012 Everest Challenge. And because the peripheral neuropathy still comes and goes, and it has degraded my ability to work at the computer. So getting on the bike makes it go away within 45 minutes, and it stays better for some days. But the P.N. still has my toes weirded out and a little uncomfortable.

Lean and strong for peak condition means 9 months of training for EC. Body weight is trending to 174-175 pounds (lost ~5 pounds of fat in ~2 months), and aerobic condition is already at very high levels (see graph below).

A couple of double centuries should bump up condition to 2012 levels by April. Hopefully 2015 won’t deliver bad luck as did 2013 (surgery) and 2014 (gut problem all year).

So I’ve signed up for the Southern Inyo Double Century on March 7, followed by the Solvang Spring Double on March 22. Possibly if the timing works and the conditions are favorable, I’ll insert the Joshua Tree Double Century on March 14. Then in April there is the grueling Devil Mountain Double, followed by Alta Alpine 8-Pass Challenge in June.
