Weekend Rides & Long Haul -- Log / Funny
Went for two rides this weekend:
Sat - holy rain batman. My training and racing buddy Sarah asked if i wanted to go for a long ride on Sat, and i was like 'sure'.. Looked like it might rain a bit, but what the hey..
Of course, it totally dumped. From the moment i left, until, over 4hrs later, i got home. Call me Mr Prune. It was good tho, nice to be on the bike that long, tho we weren't going too fast or hard. (I'm really starting to like long, hard rides..)
Sun - much nicer weather, went out with Brandon (who i usually ride with one day on the weekend) and Sarah again. About 3hrs, did a sprint by the airport, and Brandon managed to pass both us (Sarah did an early jump, but i caught her pretty easily), Brandon inched by, and i was stumped because i'd not gone up to my big chainring (it's been gunked-up by all this weather) so he managed to pull a nice success. Got my HR up to 192, which i think is the highest i've seen. Brandon said he saw 200 on his (cheap one, doesn't retain max), which would be pretty incredible if it really is that high!
Also, saw this over on VeganFitness, thought it was pretty funny:
M - w/o @ home, mostly upper body
T - short w/o @ gym, mostly legs
W - ride if nice, else rollers
T - same as Mon, or maybe ride if nice
F - rest, or ride if nice and didn't ride T
S - Ride
S - Ride
