For some reason, the pool was empty this morning. Really weird since it's been packed lately. Not that I'm complaining!

Nice morning run. Great running weather! Can I order this for my next marathon?

Evening walk with Emma. We are enjoying a beautiful spring day!

Sadly, no progress on the long awaited sidewalks along Old Raleigh Road. Apparently building sidewalks in Apex consists of bring in some fill, dump it, park some equipment, leave it for a few weeks...

Early morning walk with Emma.

I got my next block of training.  Still not group rides.  I'm a bit bummed about that.  After yesterday's ride I was worried about riding with people.  I just said something to Coach about "I assume that that group rides will come next block."  I don't mind training alone but I find that it's good to get a group ride in once a week to mix things up.

Coach replied that the group rides are coming -- give it a few weeks.


Dr. appt this afternoon (annual).  Changed my meds.  Just wanted to note it here.

Clearly my bike isn't "back" yet. Trying not to focus on the speed here, although my heart rate seemed to not be cooperating very well today either. It was "fighting" me the whole time. It would go up to the 150s (zone 2-3) and I'd hit a very slight down hill and it was quickly drop to the 130s (zone 1). Like weirdly fast dropping to z1.

Run
  • 10m 28s

Grabbed Em and did a lap of the neighborhood.

Rain is still hanging around this morning but is a lot more widely scattered.  I swapped the trainer wheel for my Mavic Ksyrium SL on the road bike so that I can do my brick outside.

Tody Goodwin

I took the above photo on Tody Goodwin Road.  The sun is peaking out!

Saturday - March 24

Bike #1
  • 1h 18m 01s
  • 18.99 miles
  • 14.60 Mi/hr

Pause mid ride due to bloody nose. Stopped the Garmin and went to deal with the nose situation and it decided that now would be a good time to upload the workout. I went to wipe the sweat off my face and my nose started to bleed. I'm not even sure that I *touched* it.

Bike #2
  • 42m 32s
  • 10.19 miles
  • 14.37 Mi/hr

The rest of the ride.

Rain seems to have parked itself over the area for the time being.  There may be a break this afternoon -- or maybe not.  The tri bike was just tuned up and has a new chain.  I'd consider riding outside but I'd like to preserve the newness of the tri bike a bit longer. The road bike still has it's trainer wheel on it so...  I'm opting for trainer time.

Weight up four pounds from yesterday.  What the heck?!


I have not heard back from the Turnpike Authority about the closure on Old US 1.  I contacted the town to see if they have any information.
