Day 153 - The Almost Long Ride Part 2

July 9, 2013            ???? lbs

What a day. Okay, so I announced yesterday I was going to do a 70 mile ride today. Didn't happen. I got to the trail after 4:00pm. There was no way I was going to make five hours at 14 miles per hour. The 70 miles was something I was going to do instead of the assigned workout for the day. So I did the regular workout instead.

The reason I look so miserable is I had just realized I was going to have to tell my coach I blew it again.

The workout was 1:30:00 ride: include 10x2' FAST/Z3/high cadence push on pedals (not spin) in this ride.

It was hot out! 90° plus some humidity. I was sweating as soon as I got out of the car. Another reason to get up early and ride as soon as I can start doing it.

It was so hot out, and I had so much on my mind that I forgot to get any good pictures!

On the way to the trail, my cars brakes began making the kind of groaning noise that can only mean the brake pads  were worn down to the rotors. This is not a good time for this expense! Oh well, life has a funny way of doing this kind of stuff when you are least prepared for it.

Training in the heat like this always reminds me of what I have heard about racing at Kona in Hawaii.


By the way, the reason there is no weight at the top is, I forgot to weigh myself first thing this morning. Something was distracting me.  .  .

Until tomorrow my friends.
