Training Ride 11/30/12

Took a very much needed rest day yesterday.  Back to the grind today with a strong 5 mile run.  Doing some mileage tomorrow on the road bike.

Training Ride 11/28/12

Could not force myself to do 35 miles so as a compromise I went 25.  Seemed fair.

Training Ride 11/27/12

Much warmer this morning, not gonna lie it was a huge bonus considering how much waking up at 4am blows.

Starting off a normal week with a run.  I will miss vacation.  Only a few more weeks until Wintersday.

Training Ride and Run 11/25/12

Did another brick today.  Weather was perfect, great day to be alive and outside.

Training Ride 11/24/12

Felt really beat on this ride.  My quads are super sore, no doubt they need a rest day.  I'll see what I can do, but it won't be tomorrow.

Training Ride 11/23/12

Legs were surprisingly sore after my running effort yesterday, but it was still a wonderful ride today.  Perhaps a bit on the cool side, but after the sun came up over the tree line it was perfect.

Vero Beach Turkey Trot 5k

My first running race.  Not bad!  Who knew I could break the 7 minute mile mark?  Certainly not me.  I can't wait to see when the official results are posted, I'm hoping I did good in my age group.  It was pretty fun, though I'm not sure how excited I am about future running races, I'd rather bike honestly.

Training Ride 11/21/12

Here we are.  No work thanks to thanksgiving, so I took the opportunity to do a half century on a sunny, cool but windy day.  Nothing to complain about, because I could have been at work.  This was better than work.

Training Ride 11/20/12

So here we go with my first/last pre-dawn ride of the week.  Holiday = no waking up at 4am.

Training Run 11/19/12

I wasn't sure I would be physically good to go for this run after yesterday's brutality.  Somehow, I did it.  I'm great?

2012 Horrible Hundred

What a ride.  Was great to ride with the UCF team.  We stopped at all the SAGs which may make it sound easy, but when we were going we hammered.  Awesome ride, cannot wait for next year.

Training Ride and Run 11/17/12

Did my first brick today.  Good workout!  Horrible Hundred tomorrow.  Let's do it.

Training Ride 11/15/12

Half way through the month.  Cannot wait for the HH.

Training Ride 11/14/12

Must have rained overnight because the roads were hella wet.  Made for a less than ideal ride, but you do what you have to do.  HH on Sunday!

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Training Ride 11/13/12

Dialed back the mileage a bit as I'm trying to take it easier before the HH.  I am really bad about giving myself rest days and tapering.  This will be a challenge.

Monday, November 12, 2012

Training Ride 11/12/12

Felt a bit sluggish on my run this morning, probably due to going hard on the bike this weekend.  Going to taper this week and maybe find some form prior to the HH.

Training Ride 11/11/12

Even though I got rained on, today was a significantly better feeling ride.  Why, I am not sure, I just go with what my legs tell me.

Training Ride 11/10/12

One thing I'll say for this ride is that it was warmer.  I got a headwind both ways so it was super slow and hard.  Ugh.  Do what you gotta do.

Training Run 11/9/12

Cold this morning, but that's not such a huge deal when you're running.

Training Ride 11/8/12

Another cold day, this time rather windy.  Took the TT bike out again to the inlet and back.  Thank god I can swap between the two bikes, never get bored.

Training Ride 11/7/12

I took the TT bike out tonight after work to get out some aggression.  It worked, I pushed fairly hard.  It's a bit cold but definitely good.

Oh, yeah... I hit 10k miles for the year.  I don't want to tell you how many hours that is.

Training Run 11/5/12

Great morning for a run, so I felt obligated to do so.  Winner.

Sunday, November 4, 2012

Training Ride 11/4/12

Today the weather was picture perfect, sunny, cool and no wind.  The spoil was my left knee was causing me some pain at the top of my pedal stroke and put a damper on the whole ride.

Training Ride 11/3/12

Cold freaking ride this morning.  I think 47 when I left the house, which sucks.  Caught up with the Palm Bay Ride on Grant Road and stuck with them for about 15 miles, quite a workout.

Training Run 11/2/12

Pretty sweet run this morning with the cooler temps.  I enjoyed the briskness of running in the cool air, keeps you fresh

Training Ride 11/1/12

The final run into 10k miles begins today.  I have a renewed vigor and desire to achieve.  Horrible Hundred soon.  This month will be epic.
