14 miles . Today we started at 6am from the Cineoplis parking lot in Jupiter for a long run on hills. This route has 3 mild hills on each lap out and back, so we get to climb 12 times. Nicole and Daniel and I ran together, Maureen and Judy did some of our route … Continue reading First long run of the summer
51 miles. I was hoping for good weather that would allow us to go further than the 40 miles we had done twice a few weekends ago. Bingo - great sun, but a wind from the NNE. Jessica was rested and ready, her performance would show that in stars! We left after 1pm, hopes of … Continue reading The Push for Next Week’s Ride
40 miles - Second day in a row for a ride to the Loblolly end of Gomez Road in Hobe Sound. It is cool again, windy again, and about 1:30-2:00pm. I think the ride yesterday makes my legs a little softer, I don't feel I have the "pep" I did on Saturday. Today I remember … Continue reading Forty wind two
40 miles - What a day to ride! The temps had dropped and we experienced a healthy North wind to start. We began riding at 1:15pm, but the temps weren't too humid or blast-furnace hot like would normally be the case. I noticed immedately the cloudless sky and cooler feeling air as we started on … Continue reading Forty wind one
50mi. A start at home and up to Bridge Rd and back makes for 50 miles. That's me with two water bottles, a Clif Bar and a willingness to solo ride on familiar roads. It's me doing the "Inlet ride" I usually rip on Monday nights. It's somewhat windy on the way up Military Trail, … Continue reading Friday morning fifty
50mi - Today I woke and thought it might be nice to do a longer than my usual 30 mile ride to the inlet. I left home with a water bottle and a clif bar. I did remember to wear the lulu headband. Mid summer rides = headsweat in my eyes! I did well going … Continue reading 40 and cracked
32 miles . It should have been an easy "celebration of riding." For me, it was a workout done mostly by myself. I arrived at Loggerhead Park to be ready for a 7am ride. Problem was, nobody else was on that plan. I saw Jerry and Howard setting up, I got my things together and rode … Continue reading The Thanksgiving Ride
32mi. I wasn't looking forward to this one. Saturday run was taken from me as I went to John's CC meet instead, He did very well, his times keep dropping as I told him they would. Maybe I'll train for 5k proficiency, but I don't have it scheduled for anytime soon! It's long run time … Continue reading Plenty of time on my toes.
50 mi/3 mi run I was looking forward to riding with Suzanne and Suzanne then running afterwards. I figured the 6:30am start would have us ahead of the big Sunday groups I've associated with crashing and injuries. Didn't happen, we left with the group, Austin had no riders for his planned 70 miler so he … Continue reading The group thing
50mi. When do I get to start a ride at 11:40am? It's when our office is closed for Columbus day and nearly everyone else has to go to work. Suzanne and I left from the small parking lot at Loggerhead park, ready for max sun. Riding up to Sandsprit park was good, I spent zero … Continue reading That’s the benefit of being off.
