Old Lystra-Lower River Road with a Shearon Harris loop thrown in for good measure.

Overall, this was a good ride. I enjoyed it but I was glad to get out of the wind when I got home.

1870 climbing feet on the MapMyRide scale. This was a solo ride unless you count the wind as a companion.

It was 53 when I left the house. I wore tri shorts and a bike jersey with arm warmers. Decided to add a vest. Bad plan. By 30 minutes into the ride I was warm. By 60 minutes into the ride the vest was in my back pocket. I carried that darn vest for 5 hours!

The ride went well. I was disappointed with the speed. I think that the training is catching up to me and I was tired going into it. Add the wind and, well... To be honest the wind started to really bother me the last hour or hour and a half of the ride and I was ready to get out of the wind. It was gusting to 20 and didn't seem to come from a consistent direction. How can Old 1 S in Moncure and Christian Chapel Church both have a bad headwind?

What did I eat on this ride? Fig newton (200), Clif Bar (240), Uncrustable (210), Clif Bar (240), Honey Stinger Waffle (160) for 1050 calories.

Run

Short run to crack the 100 mile mark for September.

Emma and I are running one mile tonight.  I am at 99.5 running miles for September.  Clearly I need to run a little bit more this month!  I was watching my cycling miles and not paying attention to the monthly total for running.  Wink



I hope that this forecast for tomorrow is overstating the wind...  With a six hour ride on the tap, I'd appreciate it if the only 39 mph gusts are in the form of a tailwind.





I had some weird spikes in my heart rate last night.  Since Tuesday's run had completely useless heart rate information, I contacted Garmin about the situation.  I gave them links to the data in Garmin Connect.  Inquiry KMM22951110I15977L0KM with them.  I'll be interested to see what they have to say.

I got to the pool early which was nice because it was quiet. Since coach gave me a shorter workout, I finished early as well so I spent a little quality time in the hot tub before hitting the shower.

Old 1-Martha's Chapel-Davis

Saw Jim on the ride. Stopped for a minute to chat and let him show me his new bike. He was very excited about his new "TT bike." He keeps on calling it that. It's a Specialized but I don't know what model or anything. I'm not sure what his plans are for it since he does not tri and he does not race. I guess it's just that all the cool kids have bikes that go aero. Anyway, he's excited and I appreciate his enthusiasm.

Tonight, I ride!  Cool



I keep on hearing about the cantaloupe-related listeria outbreak.  It makes me a little freaked out since I bought cantaloupe on Sunday and ate it on Tuesday only to hear about the listeria thing on Wednesday morning.  I'm almost positive that the sticker on it said California though.  Should be OK.

Short run off the bike

Myrtle or Donna?

I would like to run a marathon in February and I am thinking of either the Myrtle Beach marathon or 26.2 with Donna in Jacksonville.  I did Donna last year and it was a good event.  Myrtle Beach is closer to home so would be a much easier drive.  Donna was fun and I can wear shorts, Myrtle is closer and has pace groups.  What to do?

Early morning walk with Emma. 3.1 miles in 43:23. Getting the cobwebs out of the legs after yesterday's long run ;-)

AM:  Once again, it's training plan Monday!  Next weekend should be my max weekend -- not sure what the weekend after will look like...

PM:  New training block received.  Coach said one more big training weekend in this peak training phase.

Westhigh-Bond-Davis-Normandie

This run was a little bit disappointing. I felt like I held it together pretty well for the first 10 miles or so but not as well for the remainder of the run. I understand the theory behind running on tired legs but today it just felt frustrating.
