Training Ride 9/30/12


Closed out the month of September with a nice metric century down to Jensen Beach and back.  I felt incredibly strong today, my legs were electric and I had a ton of pop.  I hope this form holds up, since next weekend is the Tour de Vero.

Training Ride 9/29/12


Hey all.  Took the TT bike out today to try a 40km simulated time trial.  I've never done one at this distance and as this is the measuring stick for time trials I needed to do it to see how I am.  I finished it in 62:51 which is about .3mph off a one hour pace.  The goal is to break an hour so I'm not satisfied, but I'm not disappointed either.

Training Run 9/28/12


Taking Monday off running was very clutch, because the soreness and knee pain that was starting to creep in was totally gone today.  I guess even machines like me need to take breaks.

Training Ride 9/27/12


Another week of morning rides in the books.  This was a brutal week but I'm ready for the weekend rides, weather permitting.

Oh look, another fun ride in pitch blackness.  Job done.

Training Ride 9/23/12


Weather finally improved.  So I destroyed the Grant Ride and was rather happy with my form.  A north wind is a rare treat.

Training Run 9/22/12


Ran my first 10k.  I'm sure all you runners are laughing at my time, but I'm just happy to have done the distance for the first time.

I should also mention for the record that the roads were still wet from the rain so I couldn't bike.  I am desperate to ride tomorrow.

Training Run 9/21/12


This month is flying by.  Taking a weekend off to rest seems a lot bigger than it was, but we'll see where I am at the end of this weekend.

Training Ride 9/20/12


Did a few extra miles this morning to close out the week.  Hopefully the weather holds up this weekend so I can get some strong miles in.

Training Ride 9/19/12


Another day where I really felt some juice in my legs.  I hope I can keep this form up for a while.

Training Ride 9/18/12


First ride in a while, felt really good.  Tour de Vero coming up soon, time to get the engine tuned up to top form.

Training Run 9/17/12


Took another rest weekend for my birthday.  Time to get back on track, Tour de Vero coming up soon, and I need to be close to my peak.  Back to reality starting today.

Training Run 9/14/12


Closing out the week with a nice 5 miler.  I have to say that I've really enjoyed running and it's working out even better than I expected.

Training Ride 9/13/12


Super stiff NE wind this morning so I took my north route.  It was a nice change of pace, can't wait for the weekend festivities.

Training Run 9/12/12


Too wet to bike, so the running shoes came out.

Training Run 9/10/12


The right way to start off the week is with an invigorating run.

Training Ride 9/9/12


Great ride today.  Strong west winds (a rarity here) which made some sections easier than normal while others were much harder.  West winds usually bring bad thunderstorms, so maybe a nice thunderstorm nap is in order this afternoon.

Training Ride 9/8/12


A metric century this morning on one of my favorite routes.  Operating on less than 6 hours of sleep and no breakfast put a damper on my speeds, but just the fact I got out of bed to bike was a miracle in and of itself.

Training Run 9/7/12


Hello baggers.  A nice 5 mile run to book end the week.  I am excited for a weekend of nice long bike rides and, ofcourse, football.

Training Ride 9/6/12


Nice ride this morning.  Went a few extra miles because I'm not bike commuting so I needed to do a little extra work to keep up my program.

Training Ride 9/5/12


Another strong day.  Either I'm coming into really good form or that rest week I took is paying off.  Regardless, I'm stoked be feeling so strong.

Training Ride 9/4/12


Felt really fast and strong today.  Can't stop won't stop.

Training Ride 9/2/12


Absolute scorcher today.  One of the hottest rides so far this year.  I was deep in suffering by the end.  But the end is here, so let me at some ice water.

Training Ride 9/1/12


Two weeks since my last ride of this length, so this was a real wake up call.  My rest weekend was nice, but busting ass for four hours is nicer.
