21 miles. Scott Hicks and Carolyn woke up early to do some spinning into windy conditions on the Sat of our 3 day weekend. We started at Loggerhead and went to the inlet twice. On the second stretch north, we went faster from Donald Ross Rd to Carlin Park. Carloyn lost a chain and had … Continue reading Mem. Weekend Ride 1
2000 yards. I did all of the kicking with a set of cut fins, they fit way too tight which made that uncomfortable. I did the intervals prescribed, but only waited 15 secs between them. That should help! Warmup Set (400y) 100 kick easy @ 0:10 rest, 100 kick moderate @ 0:10 rest, 50 kick … Continue reading Some meaningful intervals
20mi. I spun through my Singer Island early route this morning instead of running. It was windy form the NE, so the trip up Singer Island was against the wind. My average speed was 19.1 for the route, my hurt leg felt some of the effects of riding so I never pushed that hard. It … Continue reading Off the mark a bit
6.5 mi What a surprise, I finished 6.5 of 7 miles and left limping. I arrived alone, ran a mile in the parking lot and felt nothing adverse. Then I ran bridge lap #1 alone, too. I encountered a loudmouth drunk coming down the hill, so when I saw Adrienne and Lisa Reiss staring, I … Continue reading Stung once more

32 miles. This was a great ride starting at the end of Key Biscayne in Bill Baggs State Park. I was camping with the scouts and knew bringing the tri bike was a good idea. I woke at 5:45am and had to sneak out of the park, which doesn't open until 8am. (I also had … Continue reading Miami ride
2000 yards of this: Warmup Set (200y) 4 x 50 [25 build/25 easy] @ 0:10 rest Main Set (1500y) 12 x [25 @ 0:50, 25 @ 0:45, 25 @ 0:40, 25 @ 0:35, 25 @ 0:30] Warmdown Set (300y) 6 x 50 [25 easy/25 build] @ 0:10 rest It was good, I must be getting … Continue reading The water’s feeling better
6 mi. Even though I ran my slowest possible Blue Heron Bridge laps ever today, it was good that I covered all the miles and had no ill effects from the recovering left leg. I got there and did not do the warmup mile or the cool down mile. I'd say without an accurate count … Continue reading It counts.
33 miles. Another ride up the Jupiter Island stretch, this time with others. I started with the 6:30am group, went most of he way up with them, staying to talk with Adrienne Papa for the last 3 miles heading north. The way back was with a new rider to the group named Chris, Bob who … Continue reading This again?
30 miles. Today was training on wheels. Carolyn didn't wake up for this one, so I cruised to Bridge Rd alone there and back. S SE wind of 13 mph made the trip back a test, like a 14 mile climb! I know my bike was setup for me properly, I wonder why my left … Continue reading Into the solo breeze
