I feel slower all of a sudden too and to think that I felt like I was just starting to get my speed back in check. :)

At least, I don't think you and I will get next to these guys on a start line. And I like to daydream that I could be faster than I am if I was training as well as them (training full time and properly)... Seeing this is motivating though.

Interresting video, im actually feeling fairly good having seen that :)

How many laps would be done ?

Dan Gerous said...

Well, I wont race against you Ross then... ;)

That's training, my guess is that in the 7 lap race, they went actually harder...

loos like raul is the stronger of the two there. or at least conserves momentum better.

Ross said...

Interresting :)

Im not sure i could do 7 laps but i think i could keep up for a bit.

Must start trainning harder then ;)

So when the guys are flying past me this is how fast they're going.

I really helps perspective.

Great blog man.
