Took off from work today and was supposed to bike at 9AM with my buddy Derrick, but damn work deadline popped up.  So I'm still home, and got to sleep in (until 10AM!) but have work to do.  Sucks.  I'll just try and get a swim in.  Works been stressful and my eating has been worse this week so I am stuck at 183... need to break through and get into the upper 170's -- which was my goal to meet by May 1st for the Long Island Half Marathon.  

Hoping to run a decent time at LI Half Sunday.  I have an up & down history with this race.  In 2014 I signed up but before to pick up my packet, or really when I remembered it was too late and the expo closed.  In 2013 I was very out of shape and bombed!!  Started with a 7 minute pace and ended with an 8:40 pace.  And in 2011, when I was in peak form,  ran a PR 1:29:07.  

Realistically I'd just like to run something around 1:39:59 or faster.  And then I'll start my BIKE FOCUS for all of May/ June and get ready for QUASSY REVOLUTION!

Sufferfest - Do As You're Told

Beginning was not fun. Middle I was like, "Yeah, I'm getting the hang of this. It's not so bad." And then the last intervals at 350w with only :08 seconds recovery... brewtul!!

Aerobic Ride, Avg HR 119

First outside Long Ride. Rode with Tony (Strikyr) who donned his Specialized roadie, and still kept pace even when I was pushing the pace in aero position!! Happy with the time considering the winds were reasonably tough and I spent a good deal of time siting up on the horns talking with Tony. Solid ride.

3LC Trainer. Have a 4-hour bike planned with Tony (Strikyr) so I took it EZ today.

Father-in-law was discharged from the hospital today for home hospice care.  Sad.
