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
40mi. A perfect clear day to ride! We started at 1:15pm, it was in the 80s but not terribly humid. Our mood was high having slept late, I borrowed one of Jessica's water bottles since I forgot to pack one. We rode well heading north, into a wind that slowed us some but we kept … Continue reading The North Forty
30 mi ride/5 mi run Knowing it gets light earlier, I was awake and left the house around 6:30am. I didn't need lights on the bike, the roads were clear of cars. I rode against an easterly wind up Northlake Blvd and then north on Military Trail, also kind of against the wind. I felt … Continue reading A brick done early

We watched Hangover Two, that took most of two hours, then pedaled through an … Continue reading 184 minutes

The regular longer ride group left at 6:45, ok for me, I'm low on any base cycling miles, I don't need the benefit of the draft. … Continue reading Tune up at race distance.
50 mi. Suzanne and I left the 7am start group only minutes before, thinking they'd catch us easily. They never did. We went to Bridge Rd, paused, continued up Gomez and over to Sandsprit park with no trailers. We saw the group near the Port Salerno traffic circle fixing a flat, it was the second … Continue reading Fifty necessary miles
30mi. The idea was to go only 30 miles but to spin one gear lower than where I belonged. I left at the same time as the group but allowed the mass to get further ahead of me. I stayed behind with no pull, we were riding with the wind up the Island. I stayed … Continue reading Short recovery 30
