Early morning walk with Emma

Doing a bit of planning for this weekend's trip.  Confirmed that there is a lap pool in Waynesville.  In fact, it looks like the rec center is about three miles from our hotel.  We're staying about 30 minutes from Lake Logan.

On Friday, Setup posted on Facebook that the water temperature at Lake Logan was 66 last week.

Currently, the forecast for the weekend calls for sunny and mid to low-80s with light winds. 

I don't know why I'm wound up about this weekend.  I think because I just like going out to western North Carolina.  This is an event for me, not a race.  I'm certainly not peaking for it.  I just want to have a fun weekend with Kevin and Emma.

I had big plans to meet the Doug, Karen, Meredith, Tom and other CSH regulars for this ride. I got to the ride start, made my way through packet pickup where I saw Tom and Gordon, went back to my car and got my bike, went back to the pre-ride area. I saw Tom and Gordon again but none of us could see Doug or the others. Hmm. The ride started, we continued to hunt for Doug. Tom and I lost Gordon pretty quickly. He was riding with another friend (not someone I know) and I think that Gordon was sticking with him. No problem. Tom and I got stuck together throughout the ride. Finally, as we were about to leave Maple View Farms rest stop, we saw Doug and Meredith roll in. We were literally clipped in and rolling away and we decided to just go on at that point. The ride was good. It’s fun to be out with such a large group of riders! The rest stops were disappointing this year. Yeah, it’s nice that they have ice cream at the turnaround and at the end but that does not fuel a ride.

Cup n Cone ride today!

Beaver Creek-Martha's Chapel-Carpenter Firestation

Beautiful night for a bike ride. Both the temperature (80 degrees. In North Carolina. In July!) and humidity were more comfortable. It was nice to be out there enjoying it!

I woke up a bit stiff. Did some stretching before heading to the pool. I think that I went to sleep in corpse pose and woke up in corpse pose and never moved at all during the night!

√ Ride tonight!  The plan is for something crazy like 15 x 1 minute repeats.  Must confirm before I get on the bike. Wink

Oh Melo Velo group ride. The hammerheads zoomed ahead pretty quickly. I rode with three other people and the four of us had a nice ride. It was getting very dark due to storms popping up in the area and we decided to U-turn at Wilsonville.

There is a time for compromise.  It's called "later."

Waterford Green-Downtown-Peakway

This route has more "shade breaks" and is more appropriate for days like today (and last Tuesday) that are 90 degrees or hotter. Today's assignment: run 60 min (z2) with 3x3 min @ 5k pace with 3 min between

Sport #1
  • Core Training
  • 15m

Pre swim core workout

Sport #2
  • Stretching
  • 05m

√ Run tonight! 

I mapped out a new route that goes over to Waterford Green instead of through Haddon Hall.  Hopefully that will be shadier and more appropriate for days like today (and last Tuesday) that are 90 degrees or hotter.
