30 miles - Time, to revisit riding! I haven't done this jaunt in two months at least, and our main street, Northlake Boulevard was repaved. I like to start early so as not to get much traffic and especially to not be mixed in with the Christ Fellowship church traffic in or out. I started … Continue reading Wind and wheels
30 mi. I woke up early enough to make a ride before the predicted rain arrived. There was such a small wind it was negligible. I had a bottle of Accelerade mixed in cold water from the fridge dispenser. That didn't last, it was warm before the half way point. The roads were very empty … Continue reading Calm riding
30 mi. I am in a habit now of going for the loop to the Jupiter Lighthouse and back on a Sunday morning. It's calm with any wind coming from the northeast. I don't run alone much, this is the "time in my head" reflective hour plus I get to myself. I am not going too … Continue reading Solo riding
Today I attended the 2nd Garden of Life 5k at PGA National Resort and Spa. I was a volunteer for this event like last year. For the first running of this race, I was at the "crossroads" of golf cart paths that get run past twice on the course. It's an important spot where four … Continue reading A 5k first!
30mi. That's got to be what my bike has been thinking as I open the garage door, park the car, and close the electric door again. All without removing the Specialized S-Works from its I haven't been riding much - and when I do the cycling gods are paying notice. My speedometer, CatEye wireless dual … Continue reading Remember me?
30mi. I rode my regular loop to the Jupiter Inlet and back. Today, I remembered to wear a headband under my helmet, and use sunscreen spray. It is noticeably warmer this summer vs. past years. We don't get the afternoon rains that would bring cooler afternoons. My ride was not speedy, good heading with the … Continue reading Remember the Heat
48mi. Second week in a row for this group. Our area has a large number of very fast cyclists. I am not one of them. No different than showing up for a Masters Swim meet, I came again to the Sunday 7:30am ride. Last week we went 32 mph on US-1, post-beer and wine at … Continue reading The B Ride
5mi. We tried our best to "guess" the intervals, but no one had any luck today. Clear of the A1A Marathon and with no participants slated for the Treasure Coast race, I thought we'd be getting a mile interval. Not to be, many of our jaunts were donr in twos... The 1200 at the end … Continue reading Plenty of doubles
8mi run/19mi bike - Today was the fake out of, "These breezes will make it seem cooler than it really is." Paul and I ran a warmup lap, followed by me running another one with Jen Keyes. It was that seedy looking guy in the parked white van that had me wondering... This was my … Continue reading Performance Enhancing Winds
7mi run/19mi bike. A 4:19am alarm means it's Tuesday, my earliest rise of the week. I zip through some situps and pushups and then drive over to the bridge. Some days, it's an easier stretch of road to drive than others. Today, red lights got me bad. I arrived just a tad before 5:00am. Regina … Continue reading Begin Your Day This Way!
