Early morning walk with Emma

This may not look like much but I am celebrating the fact that we have had no measurable rain for the past 24 hours!  

For my Sustainability class, I need to ask two people
  • * How do you choose what to eat? Does this vary or has it every varied?
  • * What factors do you think go into the decisions people around the world make when choosing what to eat?

NCBC Spring Rally.

Good ride! I enjoyed riding with the group. At first I was not sure about doing Andrew's Store instead of Old Graham but I thought it worked out fine and it was kind of nice to have that climbing out of the way in the first half. I missed going over the Bynum bridge though.

Today's group included Stan, Fred, Chris, Matt, Gabe and Tom G. along with a few others that I did not know well.

Kevin asked me about the rest stops and I explained to him that this is a club rally, not a ride per se. The North Carolina Bike Club hosts the events and they do have SAG and sweeps as well as three rest stops. At the start of the ride is a table with "pocket food" (leftover bonk bars from the Raleigh 70.3 rest stop, packs of Lance crackers, etc.) along with water and Gatorade. Each rest area has that plus PB&J. There are cue sheets and the route is extremely well marked. The event is free for club members and membership costs $15/year/family so it's pretty much a bargain.

Early morning walk with Emma

I think that Emma's night vision is starting to go.  The last few times that I got up to walk her, she went to Kevin's office.  She walks right to the router with the flashing light instead of continuing down the hallway to the steps.

Beaver Creek-Martha's Chapel-Davis. Wet ride but I was glad to be outside. The first 1:15 was actually pretty dry -- some spitting, some mist -- but during the last 45 minutes the rain got heavier and by the time my two hours was up, I was ready to dry off. Today's assignment: ride 2 hours (z2) with 2x 10 min @ tt pace with 10 min between

Tour de Trainer. Just tried to keep the HR in the right zone throughout. The leader of the group ride I was planning to join said, "Good thinking. No one rode after meeting in the MVSC parking lot. Drank beer at MDH." So in terms of training, I guess I made the right call.

Ugh.  It started to rain while I was coming home.  I'm hoping that this will not become an indoor ride.

I went outside to give it a go and it started to pour again.  Setting up the trainer.

Make a list of your dreams...

Seagroves-Haddon Hall. Good run, if somewhat juicy. At last some storms in a neighboring county knocked down the temperature a few degrees for me! Today's assignment was run 60 min (z2) with 3x5 min @ 10k pace with 5 min between.
