Talked to Coach about HRM thing.  She said this is IM Training Sucks At The End Syndrome.  "Don’t worry about your HR at the moment.  I am not concerned or surprised that it is off.  The taper will bring all that back in line.  I wouldn’t care if you put your HR monitor in your dresser and left it there for the next week to be honest."

In related news, the Garmin HRM soft strap issues that I started to experience last month and really came to a head in my 9/27 run -- after contacting Garmin and jumping through some hoops, they are replacing the soft strap.  I've been using my old hard strap since about October 1.

I was thinking about when was the last time I saw Green Cap Guy. Has he been part of the outdoor crew? Me no swim outside at 5 a.m. so I would not have seen him. Oops! Was that 8 or 10. I think that it was 18. Didn't I just do a spot forward? I finished the set and Sorry Charlie! My watch said I had done 18 and not 20. Quick, do another 50 meters!

Today's mission: Ride 90 min (easy) then run 2.5 hours (z2). This was the ride easy part. Out on 1010 was with a tailwind. Wheeeeee! Coming back from Old Stage Road was more like work. ;-)

Run
  • 2h 32m 08s
  • 15.51 miles
  • 09m 49s /Mi

While I was running, I kept on thinking, "less wind and more sun please!" I don't normally change if I am doing a brick but I wanted a cycling jersey and arm warmers for my ride. I changed to a short sleeved T for the run. The first 10 miles went better than the last bit but overall it was good.

My new shoes are finally starting to feel like they are mine.

Yikes!  20 hours and 16 minutes for training this week, no wonder I've been hungry!

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.
