Training Ride 10/30/11

Really hard ride.  A 20mph wind is never fun to deal with.  Even when I had it at my back I was so sapped that I couldn't really zoom.

Training Ride 10/29/11

Rainy weekend again.  I'm shocked at how many miles I've gotten this month considering how awful the weather has been on average.  Granted, we have had some beautiful weekends of epic riding, but they have been sandwiched between wet, windy rain outs.

10x2 intervals
10x30sec intervals

Working lactic threshold and v02 Max.

Training Ride 10/27/11

Bad ride.  It was super humid and felt super cold as a result.  I had a calf cramp, which rather sucked.  Need to pound more water with my meals.

Training Ride 10/26/11

Pretty solid ride this morning.  The beautiful north winds are gone, back to east winds.  North winds are always nice for the tail wind return voyage, but just being able to ride is great.

Training Ride 10/25/11

Another week.  Riding before work is some of the best stress relief going, even if the ride itself is stressful due to pitch blackness and weird drivers.

Training Ride 10/23/11

Really fun ride.  I pushed myself a bit harder than I normally would for a 60 mile ride, but it worked out fine.  The weather was great.  Wind was a factor but luckily I had it at my back for most of the trip home.

Beat the rain by a few minutes.  Better lucky than wet.

Training Ride 10/5/11

Early morning spin as usual.  Lot's of pot holes is not so fun in the dark.

Training Ride 10/2/11

Hard ride, pushed my heart rate up somewhat.  Last long ride before the Tour de Vero.

A Pro Cyclist's Diet

Andy Schleck posted a twit pic of what his daily diet looks like during the Tour.  He is probably eating 8-9k calories per day.  It's almost so much food I don't envy him... almost.

Training Ride 10/1/11

Amazing weather.  Cool temps, a nice tail wind on the way home and not a cloud in the sky.  Perfect day for a long, hard ride.
