Recovery ride. Primary purpose: Go to Dairy Queen. Mmmmm, strawberry cheesquake Blizzard...

Legs are sore.

Easy recovery swim.

But the hot tub after the swim was the hightlight!

RR is up:

My Racine time starts with a 4.  Hells yes!  More later, unless I'm sleeping on the couch, stuffing my face, or watching the tour.

Yo.  Still suffering from the summer cold.  Hoping a good nights rest tonight helps.  If I feel like I do now on Sunday, the goal will be to just finish.  If I feel better, sub 5:30.

  • 38m
  • 3.53 miles
  • 10m 46s /Mi

Ugh. No power. Legs feel dead. Energy low. Walked a bunch.

Rest is key between now and Sunday. No joke.

Hola.  Woke up with gunky sinuses today.  Wonder if it is from the lake on Saturday.  Probably not as that would be a delayed onset...  After last night's crappy bike ride hoping for a good swim / run brick at lunch today.

Of note--on Sunday's century I had some knee pain just above and behind my right kneecap.  No big deal.  Didn't think about it until about 13 miles into last night's ride.  Hope whatever it is will settle down before Racine on Sunday.  I stopped to stretch mid ride last night and that helped.


Rather dull tour stage yesterday.  I avoided the interwebz pages that would have info on the finish as I was waiting to watch until after working out.  I went to Wheel & Sprocket's web site in the afternoon to see if there were any used cross bikes on the classifieds and their stoopid cycling news thing says "******** WINS STAGE 10."  Bitches.  Name blocked in case any of you are a day behind.  I was pissed!  Oh well.

In food news:

When we were up in Bayfield, WI a few weeks ago there was a complimentary jar of apple butter from The Bayfield Apple Company in our condo.  SO. FREAKIN'. GOOD!  I just finished it this morning.  May have to track down more.  Why is it so good?  Well:

Bayfield Sugar Free Apple Butter

Ingredients: Apples, touch of cinnamon Calories: 10 -- Total Carbs: 2

Natural apple fructose is the only sweetener; no artificer sweeteners are used. Apple meal is cooked in a bath of apple fructose and pureed. The puree is then cooked in apple cider that has been concentrated by boiling. (The cider is made at our orchard and only contains the juice of pressed apples.)

Weak sauce! Didn't really want to ride but promised myself I would get five minutes in and see how it went from there. Felt lame but okay at five minutes and went downhill from there... There's days like this in IM training, I know. Going to try to get some extra sleep tonight.

Dear Friend,

I just signed the World Cancer Declaration - a major global push to pressure
world leaders to act now on cancer.

Right now, Lance Armstrong is riding in the Tour de France and dedicating his
ride to this cause. And after the race, he'll send these commitments to world
leaders and pressure them to attend the World Cancer Summit in Dublin this
August. It's our best chance to push for better treatment, more funding for
cancer research and access to care for everyone around the world.

But if people like us don't stand up, these leaders won\'t pay attention.
Will you sign the declaration? It only takes a moment and could make a huge
difference: [1]

While we\'ve made tremendous progress in the fight against cancer, we still
have a lot of work to do. By 2010 cancer will be the #1 killer in the world,
and as you read this message millions are fighting the disease around the
globe. We need our world leaders to take action now.

I took this action because I believe this crisis couldn\'t be more urgent.
Will you join me? It only takes a moment: [2]

Tri Wis Lannon ride tonight.
