30mi. I rode to the Jupiter Inlet from home, using a later start time (5:00pm) to maybe take advantage of cooler temps. I swear I was caught by most traffic lights on Military Trail heading north... plenty of stop -> clip out of my pedals -> get a drink -> start up again. It was … Continue reading Back on record
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
40 mi/3 mi Starting out on wet roads after you drive through a storm isn't what you're thinking prior to a ride. I sent a text to Lanae who confirmed that she was still riding. Anita found me via text to report that all of her group had bailed out so she would ride this … Continue reading For what reason? Cuz it works.
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.
2000 yards. I felt neat leaving the crummy weather outside to get a swim workout in. I was trying new clear TYR goggles and I remember noticing the shortness of breath I had in the early warmup laps. I did the 300s and had some thoughts about form, but I felt my breathing needed the … Continue reading First in awhile
18mi. Today was to be a school drop off for John and early to work. Really early, like get there 1.5 hrs before the building is ready for a day's work. I spoke with Suzanne the night before and found she does a morning ride or brick most Wednesdays, I think if it's short enough, … Continue reading Surprise ride!
50 mi. What could go wrong on a sunny Sunday morning with the group? I arrived kinda late, in time to use my refurbished pump and also help Lilia get her bike ready. I had the new Garmin in Biking mode, all my drinks and treats, I was ready. I started a bit after the … Continue reading Some wind, no tech
40 mi. Not looking to be away from John for too long, I chose a shorter than most ride. I arrived early to the parking lot but ended up being one of the last riders to leave the park. I saw Austin's new Shiv, a surprise purchase while he was up in NC... great bike … Continue reading A new park on the route
5mi. We don't get a mile for time assigned often, those are every 5-6 weeks apart. We even less get to do two timed miles in the same workout - that was today. We started with innocent 200m intervals, then a mile at what Paul billed as 80%. I ran with Tom Matese for a … Continue reading The double mile day.
2000 yards. The pool was full of swimmers, when I got there, like share a lane at LA Fitness? For a few laps, yes... I felt it took a longer than usual time to swim 2000 yards, many reps of 50s today. Warmup Set (400y) 2 x 150 (25 easy, 100 build, 25 hard) @ … Continue reading Solo until I get there
