After the 100 mile Smoky Mountain Century on Thursday we did a 10 mile hike to Ramsey Cascade on Friday followed by a great drive through Cades Cove where we saw 5 bears. We had planned to ride on Saturday before we left but it was raining when we got up so we headed back to Cincinnati. Once here I did 2x20 steady states at Ault Park at 320 each. Today was an off day where I taught the 8am apin, a noon beginner cycling class and a 4:30 spin intro. Big week ahead with steady states that ramp from 330 to 340 to 350, some hill accelerations and the time trial on Tuesday.
