Cold, windy ride today

Saturday, February 25, 2012

I skipped the intervals today and just did a 14 mile base ride. I couldn't see doing 20 mph intervals into a 30 mph wind.

    Yeah, the wind has been pretty crazy this weekend! I was driving to Chesapeake and it was pushing my car all over 664!

    Wise decision. 30 mph headwinds can make just staying on the bike a challenge. Hopefully, you were able to ride into the wind for the first part of the ride and had a stupid fast tail wind home. emoticon

    I hear ya! Wind was 44 mph around me yesterday and so I opted for a power walk instead. Wind died down today so will venture out for a ride.

  I know that feeling. I run and once had to do a long run in a freezing rain. Layering worked only so long and then things got soaked and I was miserable for the rest of the run.

Easy ride

Friday, February 24, 2012

Easy ride in today. Temp was 65, I had a nice tailwind most of the way. It looks like it could rain on the way home. Oh well, I won't melt.

    That's the way I look at it! Wish I could get in a few miles someday soon.

Great ride today

Thursday, February 23, 2012

Today's ride started with a five minute warmup, a fast paced twelve minute interval, a five minute slightly lower paced rbi (rest between interval), followed by another fast paced twelve minute interval. After a five minute rbi. I started my first of four, one minute intervals at my max pace. (20-22 mph) The legs are getting stronger and I am getting faster.

    Wow, great job! I have simply a cruiser bike but I ride it 4-5 times a week and I love my bike. I hope to one day work up to more intense riding but for now it is my exercise around town.

Work schedule

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

My work schedule has changed. I will be working from 11-7 for a while. The traffic is lighter on the commute to work, the weather is a little warmer, and the commute home should have less traffic as well. We had snow late Sunday night, but it is all gone now. This week we are having warmer weather, so I may be able to wear shorts everyday!!
