Today will be a another Rest Day "The Horror!!"  I'm still pretty sore and fatigued.  I was going to do a Swim and a Run, but the body is telling me otherwise.  My back/spine is still sore from the squat bar!  I'm such a wuss!!  Weight is also up a tad, but this is to be expected.  Progress isn't just a straight arrow-like line.  I needed this little break after 100/100.   

Focus now is THE BIKE and preparing for vEverest on March 13th.  The strategy is to Run 3X per weeks (2 regular runs and 1 medium-long) ; 2 EZ Swims ; and everything else is THE BIKE @ Zone 2 to prep for vEverest.  Thinking 10 Hours next week, and and then 7 to 8 hours the following week so I go into the event with the engine running hot.  I think this will give me the best chance at a good Recovery too... cause I don't want to lose too much time after vEverest.  We'll see...

Mostly Recovery ride. One block of 200W felt easy despite legs still being sore.

First full Recovery Day since... November 12th.  3 X 20 squats with just the bar has me pretty sore.

ZRL Race #6 (B)

Even though the first part of the race was 5 flat laps in Richmond, it was so fast. I hung on for dear life first 4 mins, and because I was in the back my group got gapped after the first Sprint. Grrr.. But really I have so much fatigue in my legs it's tough to race on the rivet!

100 Runs in 100 Days, Done & Dusted! As they say in the UK - lol! I ran over 1,000 kilometer; I didn't get injured due to lots of preventive exercise and yoga; I had great support from Dale and Rusty, and many BT'ers and peeps on Strava.

Here's the Strava link to my final run:

  • 58m 10s
  • 6.07 miles
  • 09m 35s /Mi

  • 4h 26m 25s
  • 88.10 miles
  • 19.84 Mi/hr

Uber Pretzel! 4th time. Rode w/ Dale and Rusty
217 AVG / 234 NP

Felt absolutely terrible halfway up the EPIC KOM, but managed a PR. And a PR on Radio Tower and the whole Uber Pretzel. Having double draft and 5k riders start really helped the times.
