8PM Kind of a hard effort today. Had to stop like 80 bajillion times at all the road crossings in the first/last 10 miles. Felt fatigued from the century this past Sunday.

Funny story...Right as I was about to blow a snot rocket, a girl on a tri bike rode by. I guess the poor girl thought I was waving at her b/c she waved at me and smiled, but I could see her smile turn to disgust when my hand went to my nose to aid in ejecting a rather large mass. Embarassed

12PM Aiming for a semi fast ride at the SCT today. Would like to do 40-50, but it depends on when I get out of work.Might try to swim afterwards, if possible.

Monday - May 6

took the day off...not really sore or in pain, just hadn't had one off in a while...

Sunday - May 5

Bike
  • 6h 20m 07s
  • 100.67 miles
  • 15.89 Mi/hr

Rode with a buddy that had never ridden this far before...we took it very easy so he could make it back. Fun time! No rain...just cool breeze and some sun...lots of clouds.

We averaged 15 going out and 17 coming back...Pretty easy effort all around...although those hills out at cedartown (landfill area) were quite fun on the return...

Bunch of turkey, wabbits, chipmunks, and other animals...We even saw a falcon out there. Nice.

Fell twice today! WTF? One time was when I cut through the grass b/c of a fallen tree that was on the path. Back tire slipped in the mud, I didn't go anywhere but down. The second was at the first hill at Cedartown. Had stopped b/c of rubbing on the bike, and when I tried to go up that very steep part, couldn't clip in fast enough and went over...I saved my bike both times.

Monster week of cycling for me...don't think I'll get up that high again until the peak weak for B2B...

SCT

10PM Awesome ride today with an army bud!!

We rode easy peasy for the first 16, then a group of 5 roadies came up on us. They got right behind my bud and I. It was strange that they got on our wheels b/c we weren't really going fast. We were just out for a leisurely ride...I took it as they wanted to play...

The pace picked up and my buddy fell to the back of the pace line. I dropped back for a second to check on him and he was fine. After a few seconds, I let my buddy know it was time to "play". I could see Doug was hurting a bit, but he wanted to play, too, and we were only a few miles from the turn around point.

Hammer time! I picked up the pace, moving to the front of the group. I started to crank up the speed, putting my head down, and going hard. I could still hear the roadies behind me, but I never looked back. During the last straight-away, which was about a three quarters a mile from the Tara Drummond trail head, I went pretty much all out.

When we got to the turn around point, I looked behind me and only one guy was there. All the other roadies had fallen back, including my bud. I waited about 15 seconds and they all showed up together. Doug was hurting pretty bad. 

Afterwards, they came over and complimented the strong ride. My bud Doug needed a few mins to catch his breath and we saw the roadies off. They were actually pretty cool. 

Adrenaline rush, baby...that was fun!
