Upcoming Ride

After only a couple 20 milers since the first part of March I am registered to do a 62 miler in the Tour de Rock. Did it last year and it was a blast, though I did train for it and rode hard. Plan to ride easy and since its basically a flat course I don't think I'll have a problem doing the distance.

Sunday we did a brick (bike/run). Biked 18 miles and then ran 5 miles. Both were very good. Held an 18.1 mph pace on the bike and a slow easy 10:10 on the run. I wasn't even pushing the bike all the way so I can really tell that the P90x workouts are helping with my legs and core. Aero was so easy.

More to come soon!

Back on the bike

Yesterday was the first time I had been back on the bike since the first week of March. Had a good 18 mile ride with some of the cruiser guys. Even though it was 91 degrees I felt unbelievably strong. Ended up having a 17.5mph average even though we didn't even push the pace or do any drafting. Well, the last 8 I did push it a little. I wanted to open it up and I did. Guess too much, dropped everyone. Felt good, the legs are not sore, though the heat almost got to me later.

I really think P90x helped. The leg workouts are killers, well, everything about P90x is pretty much killer. If I could only stick to the schedule. Last week was week 5, recovery week for me. And I pretty much have only done one workout all week. Got to get back on the program this week......and only 7 miles running logged. What a slacker.
