Good for you. It really helps to have someone just a bit faster than you to chase. I'm glad you have some folks to push (or pull as it were) you along.

I really pushed it tonight. I attribute this because of Melissa. There were only 5 of us tonight and we were trying to decide order. Based on who showed up ... I knew I was going to end up being last and passed;-)

Melissa said Jim I'll switch with you that way you can try and chase me down. I told her she was on. And the race was on as well. She was very good incentive. I tried to maintain distance and was trying to close in on her. I think I should have just maintained the distance and then hammered it a little more on the back half. What was nice is when I noticed I was losing ground because of lack of focus I reached down and tried to even pedal harder. I was really mashing the gears tonight and kept the cadence to around 75 - 85 in places I dipped down to 65.

There was a little bit of a head wind but very suddle.

I did not catch Melissa and I forgot to stop the computer after the finish line but when I met up with Melissa in the slow down recovery section and slowed down I saw my computer at 23:10 so I knew I beat my 23:30 time I wanted.

Melissa did 22:06:19 and I did 22:12:03 (mins; secs; tenths) We both did great. She admitted at the end that I was a motivator for her as well because she did not want me to pass her tonight.

I think we will be using each other quit frequently from now on to have a little competition between us. She mentioned another rider in the group tonight that she tries to ride after in a TT and it just so happens to be the same person I wanted to eventually build up to as well.

I can hardly wait until the next and last TT of the season in Sept.
So far here is what I have done in all three TTs: 1st: 26:28 (18.14 mph); 2nd: 24:05 (19.93 mph); 3rd: 22:12 (21.62 mph). So far I have decreased my time by 4 minutes and 16 seconds.
