An afternoon of riding round and round in circles ...
Another long arvo at DISC!
Yesterday was another long day at DISC. Hilton and the VIS and NTID squad are all up in Sydney at a training camp so I had the responsibility to look after whoever did show up to train. I got in to DISC at about 2:30 pm and we piggybacked onto the VIS/NTID timeslot and did some skills work and high intensity work with a couple of the lads who are gearing up for the Omnium this Saturday and for SSS round 6 on Sunday. Handy!
At about 5:30 Lou Pascuzzi showed up and I warmed him up behind the motorbike, then Stu "V-Train" Vaughan appeared and some more of the CCCC enduros. A reasonably small number of people, we had 4 enduros, Lou and Clint sprinting and Stu doing specific pursuit work. I gave Stu the Hilton Sprint warmup, which is usually 50 laps, starting at 30km/h and ending at 60km/h, stepping up every 10 laps, the last 10 laps going from 42-60km/h gradually.
The night saw Lou and Clint doing 1 x 750m rolling start, 2 x 500m rolling start and 3 x 250m rollers (Clint did the last two out of the gate, practicing for the Omnium I think), the enduros did a couple of motorpaced endurance revouts (20 laps behind the bike as it gradually speeds up), 15 mins of 10:50 sprint/recovery and 2 keirens, Stu did a 12 lap cadence effort, an 8 lap cadence effort on a bigger gear and then 4 x 4 lap starts.
An easy night logistically with low numbers, Mick Cummings and I worked well together keeping it all flowing and everyone trained their hearts out. I did some 90km on the motorbike by the end of the night. All done by a bit after 10pm (after Clint and V-Train got the hint!), home by 10:30ish for dinner!
