Was supposed to do 100, but some nasty clouds appeared and I was a little gunshy after the sudden storm in Edmonton yesterday. I had some friends at that outdoor concert where one died and many were injured. The Whole stage collapsed from the storm!

Anyway, got to Lumsden and came back.
26k/hr headwinds on way out
Average 25km/hr out there
Average 40 km/hr on way back!

Nutrition. Water, Glycocarb (didn't want to use up my Perpetuum) a granola bar, e-load pills.

BRICK.
Finally got my brick on. Felt good. Legs not too bad. A little crampy near the end in the usual places, but I got through it.

I think I have to go ride again today...Great!

Started in 5 degree weather. 15k headwind. Finished in 24 degree weather 11k headwind...go figure.
had to wear gloves and a hat and jacket.
Took them off at Moose Jaw. Went out about 80k on the TransCanada highway. Came back home. Picked up First wife and we rode out to the weigh station and back together for the last 25k. This is bliss...sweaty and salty and all.

REALLY didn't feel like doing a BRICK!

Sport
  • Stretching

You know, I don't usually start my whining about the cold until January. But it is 5 degrees C out there. Sheesh. You'd think November would be warmer.
I'm doing a little ride today.
I'm going to have to alter my route that that I can wear my arctic parka for a stretch, then drop it off at home as it warms up.

It was a good day to swim...just to clear my mind. A little shoulder pain near the end, but worked through it and now just my triceps are sore as usual...as are my legs.
4x500yards
500 flippers drill
500 pull buoy.

Bike
  • 58m

Spinning to get the legs nice and loose. Got kinda distracted when I found a backpack (empty) in good shape on the highway. Second Born needed one. It is cool.
Because of that I doubled back and lost about 5k and 3 or 4 km/hour. But I don't mind, the objective was just to have an easy ride.

It is all good.
I guess I'm a triathlete now.

The usually bored looking lifeguards looked miserable today as the rain fell and they had little to no shelter.
The swim was great as only the dedicated and zany showed up to swim. Even the World Champion was there in his wet suit!
4x500yards steady
3x50 fast
50 easy

Looks like rain today...swimming might be out...and cycling?

Really heavy legs...didn't feel like running. Just as I was thinking about turning around, I decided to go offroad. Running on the trail forced me to pay attention to my step and not my tired legs, upped my pace tremendously and finished very strong and very fast.

Okay. I found the new wetsuit I want to wear at Ironman.


 Got up for a run...was really, really tired. and it was 7C...no typo. Went back to bed.

Man that was windy. Very strong crosswinds and a 35k/hr headwind on the last 8k home. Fun fun fun. Just put my head down and peddled. High cadence the whole way.
1000 times better than not doing anything.

Now it gets interesting.
