Definitely a must to change the bibs. I wish I would have done it for the Half.
So my work Christmas night is the night before this. What could possibly go wrong?!
I’ll be at the 7 AM EST ride, following along on Dischord. Great idea smack dab in the middle of the holidays. I already had Makalu on the schedule that day, so I’m looking at it as only incrementally more difficult (that will get me in the saddle that morning, anyway.)
Snap! I was thinking about giving Disaster a miss but I don’t want to be a quitter
Got you added, 12pm GMT if I did it right.
@mcneese.chad I made a 3/4 version of Disaster that features every interval in the full ride, just at 75% of the full duration (except bursts, which were left at the full length): https://www.trainerroad.com/cycling/workouts/441297-disaster-3-4
I can’t share this with the Disaster Team. Can you?
I just added you to admin, so you should be able to add the workout to the team workout catalog.
Alright, added. Should be available for anyone who wants to do a 3/4 version now!
So i did the Disaster half today. Because i didn’t know what to expect from a 2,5h trainer - ride, i lowered the intensity by 10%. I took 3 short breaks for pee and technical stuff. Had 1.5l of water and a few honey waffles.
I put my 15mm exercise mat under the trainer to take out a bit of stiffness in the setup. For the entertainement i watched the 1976 Version of “a star is born”. Nice an easy film … as the ride was.
Everything went very well.
However, i think the full version will be a complete other beast.
Just got my shipping notification for the T-shirt. Thanks again for taking care of the design and distribution. You’re a real mensch. Cheers.
I did the 3/4 version today, and let me tell you guys: the full ride is going to be NO joke. That last hard section @ 85% with 200% sprints damn near killed me. Those sprints were the hardest 8 seconds of my life, haha.
Over the 3:20, I had 2.5 bottles of Skratch, 2x bottles of water, 2x Untapped Waffles, and 1x SIS gel.
12/15 is going to be brutal.
Great work. I am dreading that SS-Jump section too. It will be a terror.
Excellent- happy to do it! Hope I say the same on 12/15
You can’t wear that yet!!!
Kinda smells like ammonia, took it off and tossed into laundry hamper.
Looks good! And yes, I’d recommend washing before wearing
I usually do, wanted to check on the fit. Very nice
