Hour VO2 max bike this morning that was painful, but fun. Then, at noon, I went for a 35’ run with some strides thrown in. Weather was 65F with 45mph gusting winds. I’m pretty sure there were two sets of strides where I was pushed backwards by the wind mid-stride!!

Good job getting your workouts done Nicole and Gretchen.

Since the ramp test I've done a 60min trainer ride with 3 x 5min cruise intervals, a 55min run, with 4 x 5min cruise intervals. a 30 min easy peazy recovery ride. And snuck out at lunch today to test ride my race bike. After almost 4 years hanging on the wall, she's out of retirement and coming back into service for long/outdoor rides. Starting with a 4 hour pedal tomorrow morning.

All I've done is pumped up the tires, gave her a bit of a clean and tested everything is working. Heading off to a bike mechanic for a full birthday service is planned, but for now everything seems to be in working order.

The single speed looks very sad with all the racey bits (aero bars, clipless pedals etc.) taken off. But I am looking forward to being back on a proper bike.

Have a good weekend everyone.

90’ trail ride today. Weather is pretty nice, if cloudy and gloomy. Ended up cutting ride a little short. Had a flat/under inflated tire and I think I rode like 5 miles before I realized what was going on (oops!). Once I figured out I needed air, I was 10 miles from the truck (and my pump!). I used my CO2 cartridges to inflate the tire fully and then rode back to car, stopping periodically to check pressure and add air...except, I ran out of cartridges. I blew the first one not remembering how my adapter works. The second one worked and didn’t take a whole lot of air to fill the tire, so I saved it and topped off later. Good thing! 10 miles back to the car would have SUCKED!! Maybe I should unearth my frame pump for this bike, just in case.

Hour long run in gross, chilly, cloudy, misty conditions. It was actually a really good run in terms of the run, but man did it suck to be outside.

When, in many years, I am on my deathbed, I will get up and run hill repeats. That way, the last 15” of my life will seem like an eternity and after I’m done, I’ll want to die.

This morning’s hill repeat workout was tough. It seems amazing that of the hour workout, only two minutes were hard...everything else was walking or Z2 warmup/cool down. Nevertheless, I’m pooped! I’ve never done a hill repeat workout on the run. I’ll be interested to see how the day progresses from here.

On my death bed I will do burpees; 1 per minute of a rugby match I am watching on TV; this is clearly was a really clever idea, so much so I am contemplating handing in my degree certificate as I am obviously a fool and I now ache all over. And I did a 7 mile ride in between, and then a 5 mile ride today as again I am clever! 

On the good news front, our rugby team beat the hockey team! We averaged 249 burpees per person and hockey averaging 140. I did a mere 124; with someone doing 740!!!!!!

Hello, all.  Been out of pocket the last couple of weeks working down in Hilton Head, SC.  I took my work at home equipment and set up shop in a condo down there and enjoyed the "salt life" for a little bit.  Weather was all over the place, as high as 82*F and then we had a day of winter with highs in the mid-50s.  I did a little training in the pool plus a bunch of walking, and played golf for the first time in four years.  The results were as expected. 

I start my base training for 2021 next week.  I too will be torturing myself with a ramp test, probably on Tuesday or Wednesday.  I'm using Trainer Road's sweet spot base plan plus keeping up my strength training work.

@Andrew:  awesome on getting the smart trainer and into Zwift - it takes a little getting used to.  Let me know what worlds you like the best.  And great training, too.

@Gretchen:  your workouts are awesome, and I agree with you on hill repeats, running or biking

@Nicole: I've dealt with neck issues on and off for years, hopefully it will resolve itself and glad you got some outdoor time while the nice weather lasted

Hope everyone has a great weekend.  Go Ravens!!

Big weekend for me, capping off a big week.

4 hour ride (first proper ride on the race bike in 3 1/2 years) followed by 30 minute brick run Saturday. 2 hour run Sunday. And my mate piked on me for both days... disappointing.

Overall for the week,

S: None. Disappointing
B: x5, (4 x Zwift), 7hr 13 min
R: x4, 4hr 5 min

Total of 11 hours 18 minutes.

Riding the race bike again was fun. She sure is a little twitchy compared to the single speed. But felt good. I've got a new pair of aero bars since I last rode it, and looking at the bike after the fact I think I need to move back slightly. The extensions look a long way forwards...

Looking forward to another good week.

I woke up this morning with a sore right shoulder (in the actual joint) and both trapezius muscles are sore (so all over the upper back, shoulders, and neck). The ONLY thing I can think is that it is from the hill repeats yesterday. Has anyone ever had shoulder/neck soreness from running hill repeats? My legs are a little sore too, but that’s to be expected.

Sappo—I have a friend doing a burpee-a-thon in the month of November. Her goal is to do 2000 burpees. That’s 67 a day. I’m dying just thinking about it! But, so far, she’s nailing 75-80 a day. She’s raising money for childhood brain cancer research, so I guess there is a strong motivation. I opted to write a check over taking up the challenge though!! :D

Kestrel Talon?  If so, that was on my short list when I bought my bike, mostly because of the flexible geometry.  Cool ride!

Yup, 2013 Kestrel Talon. A much faster bike than its rider.

Originally came with a full TT setup, but I converted to drop bars and clip ons when I was preparing for challenge wanaka, as I wanted a bit more control/feeling of security descending in the southern alps. Never changed it back as drops are much more social than a TT setup for riding with friends.

I am however thinking I'm going to convert back to full TT mode ahead of the coming season. A dream would be converting to electronic shifting, so I could have a TT and road set up and swap back and forwards as needed without having to recable everything.

I sometimes get a sore right shoulder/neck post run. Not specifically hill sessions, at least not that I've noticed.

But, I've always blamed the dog pulling too much on the leash, as its almost always on that side of my body.

legs should be sore after a hill session
