Forced myself to get out of bed and go for a ride. The one day that I am actually able to get some sleep, I push myself out the door for a ride. What was I thinking???

Oh well, now that it is over, I am glad that I got the ride in. Legs are dead from the ride on Friday and the run yesterday. Nice easy ride for the first 5 then alternated with a high cadence gear and a low cadence higher gear every 2 tenths of a mile on the way in. (Big ring for both) Actually noticed that my higher cadence was then moving over to the higher gear and of course resulted in an increase in speed. Yeah!

Legs were a bit tired from yesterdays ride, but can't say that I felt bad. Another hot and humid day in New Orleans and this run was at 0630.

  • 20.00 miles
  • 18.14 Mi/hr

Did first 10 miles trying to maintain a cadence of 90 and keep the HR down (avg 17.93mph). HR-143 avg.

Did the second 10 miles starting with a HR max test. (Max HR 171, avg 158) then went back to a 90 rpm and low HR. (18.35 mph)

Not a bad workout, got some good HR info to use for the upcoming year.  Well, at least a good starting point.  Just have to check my ego when I go out and train via HR.  Me and the new Felt want to go faster (and we know we can) than the 17-18 mph range, but I have to believe in and trust the HR monitor for the IM training.  Overall good workout with a tough headwind coming back in and not to mention that it is 90+ degrees and humidity probably around 90%.  This is October 22nd for crying out loud...bring on some cooler weather!!

Off Day

Moved my scheduled off day to today because I am off tomorrow and I am dying to get the bike out on the road.  Tonight would have been another run on the treadmill since I got off work so late.  Out on the bike is much more enjoyable.  Bike tomorrow, run on Saturday with the new marathon group, then back on the bike on Sunday.  Now that is my kind of weekend!

  • 08m 32s /Mi

Did 2 miles @ 9 min/mile
HR test up .2 mph to failure which ended up being another 1.25 miles (got to 6.5 min/mile pace)

You got to be kidding me!  I just torture myself trying to get an accurate max HR.  Ran like a frigging lab rat on my treadmill and yet I find out that my max HR is EXACTLY 184.  By the way, for those reading this....220-my age (36) equals ....yep!  a F-ing 184 bpm!!!

Damn it!  Damn it!  Damn it!

I am going to have a beer on this one!
