I gained 10 lbs on my bike ride yesterday!

I rode from Encinitas to Palomar Mountain yesterday.  I had a great day on the bike. On my way back, I saw a fruit stand selling 10 lb bags of oranges for $1.00.  I couldn’t resist and bought a bag.  I carried that bag for the last 35 miles of my ride.  I thought why not – it’s good training 😉 and my son LOVES oranges! 🙂



Tempo and Threshold Work

On the last day of my four-day training block I rode 40 miles at tempo and threshold.  I did multiple sprints and intervals to finish off my legs.  Tomorrow, Sunday, I will do a recovery ride in the morning and possibly another in the evening after work.  And then Monday I will rest.  What I’m hoping for is a strong recovery after a four-day block and three days of “recovery”.  We will see on Tuesday morning when I line up for Coffee Crew.
