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.

  


Easy Spin Today

Sunday, April 04, 2010

Yesterday I pushed the pace a bit and so today I took an easy spin with my wife. We went about 22 miles at 13.8 mph: just what the doctor ordered. I'm going to try to get 100-150 miles in this week before I leave for India for one month, but we shall see!

Hope you have a great Easter.

  


Not Feeling Well Today

Saturday, April 03, 2010

For whatever reason I woke up feeling out of sorts and a little nauseated. Don't really know what's up but I'll take a little something and hope for the best. I was planning to take a bike ride later today, I may have to walk instead. We'll see.

Hope you have a great day!
