Signed up for a metric century ride this morning. Unfortunately, severe thunderstorms squashed that plan. Ended up riding on the trainer for 130 minutes. All easy Z2 riding.

Signing up for the century did encourage me to do some maintenance on my bike I’ve been ignoring since I mostly ride it on the trainer. Got the rear derailleur shifting much better than previously. Also cleaned a lot of crevices that I had been neglecting.

Happy training!

I'm on day two of a bike trip in Virginia; 98miles + one pretty ugly climb.

No switching here, unless you count starting a run from the opposite end of the trail from usual. Now that we are planning to leave Boise/Eagle soon, Mom wanted to follow me on a run from the opposite end of the Greenbelt from where we live. (I've biked the easternmost 3-4 miles with others, but never run or biked it with her before.) There isn't much shade on that part but it was still cool--mid 50's at start and mid-60's at end. Pretty run much of the way but the first half seemed to be all uphill (but how possible--downriver!) and into the wind. 90 minutes total, with some photo stops. (When I have no immediate competitive goals, my long runs can become pretty expeditionary--photography, checking out garage sales, getting lost on new routes, etc. etc.) This is at the eastern edge of Boise, between Lucky Peak State Park and Warm Springs, if anyone is familiar with the area.

Attempting to attach pic in a few minutes.

About midway we found a new cafe so decided to drive past on the way back and stop for lunch. Great sandwiches, croissants, and coffee. Oink!

For my first Saturday of the summer I got in my first bike ride over 35 miles and my fist sun burn of the year. 

I have another Sprint Triathlon in 6 weeks but am moving off the short volume high intensity stuff and on to the higher volume longer stuff.  

I loved Idaho when I was there last week I would have loved to have 50-60 degrees today.  We were into the 90's today.  We did get some lightning, thunder, and rain but it was late in the afternoon.

Pretty much all of the Pacific Northwest is like this in summer--guessing probably Utah, Colorado, western Montana as well. In dry season (summer) it might get up to 90's or even triple digits in the more inland areas by late afternoon, but you can almost always enjoy 60's to low 70's (maybe 50's in Oregon some days) if you finish your workout by 10 AM, even noon some days. I can only recall a few days the past two years when temps were past 75 by late morning already.

Ya...I lived outside of Salt Lake City until my dad was transferred with his work to Tulsa when I was 16 years old.  I remember the cool mornings.  It was really strangling feeling warm mornings in Oklahoma.
