The goal is to break the 8 min mark by July 1, 2008. For the past couple of weeks I have been do 3 x 5 min Power Climbs on the trainer with 7.5 min rest in between, 2 x per week. While I'm out on the road I have been attacking more hills with roughly 30 seconds out of the saddle for every 1:30 in the saddle. Apparently this is working....

Hmm?, the goal was to lose 30 lbs. by 4/23/2008. While my overall fitness has increased rapidly, unless I can drop 14 lbs in the next 2 weeks I think I'll fall short of my goal. Since I have been lingering at 194-195 lbs, I probably need to watch what I eat a little better and do some major endurance miles rides.
