foundation ride

long ride for the week.  really a reverse of the route.  (i.e. left Dunescape and rode home)  was hoping to break 18 mph, but had a strong head wind the whole time.  it took 15 minutes just to get through downtown to the house.  I need to find another route through downtown other than herritage street because it is too rough to ride on.

Dune scape to oceania pier along the beach

ran along beach with Wilson.  Arthur left the beach almost as flat as the South Carolina beaches and firm sand.  nice run.  no negative split as the way out was with a strong wind and the way back was into the strong wind.  19:57/20:10

was going to use William's cleats to save mine since they are getting thin. that was a massive fail. got frustrated and began thinking of all the things i needed to do, so i turned around before fhp.
should have gone ahead and ridden to the beach. all the forecasts had the winds stronger than they really were. oh well.

corrective and balance (core) strength work prior to fartlek run.  the muggies are back.  as opposed to the last two mornings which were very nice, this one you could cut with a knife.

ride to the beach for tomorrow is off.  we are still going and i will ride back Saturday.  will do the usual workout tomorrow morning before leaving.

no swim this evening.  didn't leave work until almost 7.

thinking about switching the swim and run on Wednesdays.  The runs will be hot, but they generally aren't more than 50 minutes because it is speed work.  the pool is hot, but is now around 90 minutes heading toward 2 hours.  probably better to do that in the morning.  even if I get off work later, I can still get the runs in.

foundation ride. 1.5 loops of old fhp

good ride this morning.  legs were stiff from this weekend and last night's strength work.  Won't make the run this evening at Mother Earth.  Scheduled closings and needing to get a few things together for the trip to the beach so i can swim tomorrow (weather permitting).  Planning on riding to the beach Thursday and riding back Saturday.  Looks like i will be on either side of the mess that is allegedly coming, but it should be fine.
