Rest day
It's funny to think that yesterday was the easiest of the next 5 weekends. I'm so screwed.

If you're an Arizona local, go check out the voting guide on my blog. I'll tell you how to vote, so you don't have to think.  http://www.ironchad.com/

 
Run

Canals with Fitzy and Craig. Good company makes this run go fast.

Bike
  • 42m 08s

Easy spin on the canals to finish the week.

  • 5h 02m 26s
  • 93.21 miles
  • 18.49 Mi/hr

Tempe-Beeline and around, then back. Target HR was 140. I felt great.
This might be the last loooong brick in the heat.

Run
  • 45m
  • 4.70 miles
  • 09m 34s /Mi

100F for this run. No shade, harsh. I felt pretty good, though. Garmin died at 26:00, so I estimated the rest.
Never buy a Garmin 405. It's shit.

Run
  • 1h 30m 01s
  • 9.76 miles
  • 09m 13s /Mi

I felt great during this run. A bit of pain in my knee, which may be weather changing.
Here's the suck part: I had a sneeze fit in the shower, about 10 minutes of straight sneezing. This happens during Spring and Fall allergy season; it's no fun. Anyway, I think I strained my lower back sneezing! I can't bend over now, and it's really uncomfortable to walk.
Someone call me a Waaaa-mbulance.

Bike
  • 1h 30m 13s
  • 27.80 miles
  • 18.49 Mi/hr

Meant to take it easy, but I zone 5'ed it up the big hill just to wake up. I'm super groggy this morning.
I saw Becca at the end of my ride. She rocks. Go say hi to her.

Bike
  • 45m 19s
  • 13.90 miles
  • 18.40 Mi/hr

I tried to keep things easy, like I want to do all week. I pushed a bit more than I wanted, but that's fine. ...stayed in aero as much as possible.

Run
  • 30m 08s
  • 3.33 miles
  • 09m 03s /Mi

Transition run. I felt really good on this run. 3 cars almost killed me. Kids are definitely back in school.

Newbz is much faster than me.  That is all.

Run
  • 1h 15m
  • 7.37 miles
  • 10m 11s /Mi

The good news here is that this same run would have been at 155 Avg HR 4 months ago. Aerobic progress!
Every bit of last week was hills, heat, speed, or windy. This week I'm doing 17 hours of easy miles. That's just how it's going to be.
