Wednesday - September 17

Run

Absolute sufferfest in brutal humidity. Plan was 2X10:00 intervals but when first was at 7:27 pace and then I could barely just keep running after that I knew another interval was not possible and just struggled to get home. Lost 8 pounds on this run.

Bike

Tried to hold at least 200 watts but at about mile 20 just ran out of gas. Legs were tired from Sunday ride and Monday run.

Long, easy run. Felt good.

......And no cramps. :-)

Bike
  • 3h 24m 42s
  • 71.05 miles
  • 20.83 Mi/hr

HOLY SHIT! I am back. Mark my words, if I can stay injury free I will KQ at IMTX next year. I honestly believe I've solved my cramping issues. This is literally the strongest long ride I've had in 2 years. Included 2X20:00 intervals on the back of the ride and absolutely no sign of cramps. I felt like I could run an easy marathon coming off the bike but decided not to run as I've bumped up miles already this week and have long run tomorrow.

20:00 intervals were at mile 45 at 264AP and at mile 60 at 279AP. Very happy that I could increase power on the 2nd interaval.

DAMN, FEELING REALLY GOOD ABOUT THIS! TRUE TEST WILL BE HIM IN A COUPLE WEEKS.

Saturday - September 13

Run
  • 33m 50s
  • 4.24 miles
  • 07m 58s /Mi

Cold drizzle all way so did easy run today and will switch long ride to tomorrow.
