67 miles. It's Friday and I have the time for a ride. After lunchtime I guess a good path would be to hit the beach road and do the 30 mile loop to the Inlet park and back. I leave at noon and head on the crowded roads north. Military Trail, Indiantown Road, all clogged … Continue reading Strong winds play spoiler
50mi ride/3 mi run It was just yesterday. It was based on experience, from February 'til now. And it came true! I said while running how there seems to be a pattern of weather for weekend workouts. And it wasn't isolated, I told a few people, got a few laughs, and kept going. The Saturday … Continue reading The prediction comes true
50 mi. I think minus the impending nature of an upcoming race, cycling on Sundays, even in the wind is fun for me. I like riding, I feel the pull of trying to be strong even into the wind, it's good training. Even if I wasn't training for a specific event, I do like riding. … Continue reading Stress-less fun
51 mi ride/6 mi run. Good plan gone crazy! I woke up early for a 5am solo ride through to the Tiki hut, followed by a run of over 4 miles in the heat. Early prep and a drive to Marcinski Rd's "bunker" stop. When I got to Donald Ross Rd and US-1 and it's … Continue reading Mental training, I presume?
50mi ride/3 mi run - So ring the bell again, second day in a row I'm brick riding and running. It's breezy again otday, with no letup in sight all the way to and past next week's race. I start at 6am, well we meet at 6 and start riding at 6:20am. I'm with Erin, … Continue reading Keep the formula intact.
50 mi/2 mi run - Leaving the TRS store at 5am, Erica and I saw a few people gathering to run early today. I haven't done one of those in awhile, I guess I'll have to pickup LSD runs in JUne. Right now the empahsis is on time in the saddle. I wore the Garneau … Continue reading Bite the breeze
3mi run/50mi bike. Erica, cleared to run more than the 10 minutes last weekend gave her, wanted to meet at 6am, run 25 minutes and then ride to Sandsprit Park. I planned on riding from my house and then doing another longer ride Sunday, but why not, I'll try this workout. She wanted to swim … Continue reading Mix up more and I’ll do it.
50mi/3mi run I was ready to go but not ready for cold when I showed up at 6am for the ride with Adrienne, Lanae and Lisa. They wanted to do 60-70 miles, I was ready for maybe 50. Works out good either way, if I don't do the longer miles I will get to run … Continue reading Strange feet
50mi. Today I started with the group at 6:45 - maybe 10 people were on the ride. Wind from the NW made it a climb heading up, but our group was ready to paceline into that breeze. We morphed into a smaller group at Bridge Rd, then smaller again at Gomez and some took Dixie … Continue reading Take a windy turn on wheels
50 mi. Our Sunday group was geared to go "longer than 60" because many of them are registered in 1/2 or full Ironman events in October and November. I don't need all of that, a good ride on a nice day is what I was after. I rode the first piece of the morning with … Continue reading 25 on/25 off
