Endurance Ride Today

Friday, April 09, 2010

So far this year the longest ride I've done was 40 miles. Today I plan to take that up to 60. It should take about 3.5 hours, I hope to come in at 16.5-17.0 mph average but we shall see. It's a bit early in the year for me to ride that fast for that long but I've been riding fairly well this year so we'll see.

One way or the other, my main goal is to enjoy this gorgeous day and the gracious God who gave it to us as a gift! Hope you have a great day.

  I hope you enjoy the ride.

Snow on the ground today for me, so no short or long ride I am afraid, but will be going soon I am sure. emoticon

Rest Day Today

Thursday, April 08, 2010

I'm off the bike today but then plan to go for about 60 miles tomorrow. Yesterday's ride went amazingly well and I can't wait to get back out there again! But for today, rest.

  


Strength Training on the Bike Today

Wednesday, April 07, 2010

Today I took a 28-mile ride that included 7 climbs of various lengths and difficulties. I stayed in the saddle 98% of the time and tried to push as hard as I could. I came in at 16.2 mph which is great for me on a course that like at this time of year.

It was an awesome ride on an awesome day and I'm feeling very thankful to the Lord right now!

  


Condition: Buttocks di Saurass

Tuesday, April 06, 2010

I normally ramp my riding up slowly in the beginning of the year, mostly to let my backside catch up to my passion for riding! But since I'm going to India for one month (one week from today) I've been putting in lots of extra miles.

This has resulted in the condition I've labeled "buttocks di saurass." Ouch, I'm in pain! But I love riding so much that it's worth it. I only hope that I don't have to go through this all over again when I return from India!

Rest Day Today

Monday, April 05, 2010

It's a perfect day for riding but I'm going to have to take a day off today! My body needs to recover from pushing the pace a bit this week and putting in more miles than I have in a while--96 miles, to be exact, which is not much for some but quite a bit for me at this time of year.

I hope to get 105 miles in this week in four separate rides of 17, 22, 30, 36. The two longer rides are pretty challenging and so I plan to take it easy on the shorter rides and hammer on the longer ones. We'll see how it goes!

Hope you have a great day.
