Out with Rob again! Gotta love babysitters! :)
It was supposed to be a 2 hour easy, flat ride, but I decided I wanted to ride the 10 mile Spring Classic Duathlon course which is very hilly. My bike said I averaged 16.3 mph! Whoopie!!!! We'll see come race day, though, after a couple of miles of running.

After the 37 min jaunt in Mendon Ponds, we packed up the bikes again and headed to Pittsford for the canal path. We did the remainder on the flat course, but decided we were really too tired to make it 2 full hours so we just called it a night. This is my 7th day in a row without an official day off, though, so I didn't feel too bad cutting things short. I need an 80 min run tomorrow. We're headed to Letchworth for an orienteering meet tomorrow, so maybe I'll get my run in while I'm there. We'll see, but I do need to find a real day off soon! Who knew I'd ever say that!?!?!

There were only 5 of us. I had a lane to myself, but tried to keep up with Jackie most of the time which helped push me along. It seems like my stroke is getting better which helps the swimming conditioning seem better. Felt good tonight! Hope next Tuesday will be a go too!

Wow!  Look at me!  6 days in a row of orange boxes!  Cool

(Run: Run Base
Run on a flat course or treadmill. Keep HR in Zone 1-2, no higher than mid-Z2.)

Stayed on canal path. Feet and left knee not feeling great.
Slipped up on the way home keeping HR down. Did a good job except for the last couple of minutes when I was speeding up a bit to get home for dinner.

(Big Gear
WU: 15'
MS: 12 x 1' - (30" fast, 30" sprint) 3-5' FULL recovery. Start out sitting and pedal very hard getting up to race speed, once you hit 30', STAND UP and REALLY push hard on the sprint for another 30'. This will hurt. A lot. It's supposed too!
CD: 15')

You know, the instructions were correct - it hurt A LOT! These sucked. A LOT!!!

Rob and I rode out from Great Embankment Park on the canal to Genesee Valley Park, around U of R, and back again. I'd never been past Pittsford on the canal before, and was glad to see where it goes. It is paved the entire way which is a real plus.
I got quite a bruise to the ego when Rob passed me on his Mtn. bike on one of my "sprints." Granted, it was my 8th one, and his first, but I still wasn't happy about it. If I don't see some results as far as an improved avg. speed in my upcoming races I think I'm going to pack it in. (Well, maybe not pack it in, but I will curl up into a fetal position and cry!!)

Didn't keep track of distance; just ran up and down streets in neighborhood. The sprints were a little brutal, but I felt pretty good - like I could maintain the speed for the whole minute each time.
I wore my Adidas shoes - the ones that tend to give me blisters. I think I escaped them this time.

Flat out and back on canal path Fairport to Pittsford.

I'm a little curious about the 203 max HR!! It must have something to do with the jackass in the truck who came up from behind me, revved the engine to go around me, didn't make a complete stop at the stop sign to turn left like I was trying to do, then screeched out into traffic just missing by a fraction of an inch the car coming at him from the left. I made eye contact with him and he really did look like a crazed idiot.
That pretty much set the tone for the entire ride. It seemed like every idiot was out walking on the canal today.

Nice day for a ride! Supposed to be a flat, easy ride, but didn't take a very easy route. Bike computer giving me a hard time. It went out about half-way through the ride so time is a bit of a guess, and used BT's route feature for mileage. Chain fell off bike about 21 minutes into the ride. Took a few minutes to get it back, but I did it! My hands were caked with grease and I had sliced open my left index finger, but I got it on!!

Took a 5+ min "transition" to get myself ready, but turned things into a brick. Tried a Hammer Gel, and after 1 gulp I almost vomited, so I've decided for sure they are not something I want to use for nutrition! Instead had a couple of bites of a snickers Marathon energy bar and some water and was off.

This was also supposed to be an easy Z 1-2 run, but I was feeling good so I stepped up the pace.

It was a good day!

Let's see. I fell asleep at 8 p.m on the couch, moved to the bed at midnight, and got out of it at 7:30 this morning. Darn Bryn. Didn't she know I needed a full 12 HOURS of sleep? Well, I guess I'll have to settle for 11 1/2. Oh well. Wink


Hooray!! I'm # 199/199 officially registered for the 1/2 Tinman!! I got added to the list today. It says my last name is Kameron and first name is Holmes, but who cares, I'm in!! Smile
