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:

So far i'm planning this for the week:

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

Happy week blogger-reading-world!

So...If you apparently only ride twice a week it's no wonder you have such an easy time on the Saturday sprinter recovery ride. Being as they have just completed a weeks worth of high intensity and capacity training.

Team No-Burn!!!

Hey So, are you a 'them' or a 'we' on Team No-Burn..?

As i understood it, this was supposed to be an 'aerobic' ride for these guys, but they treated it as a 'recovery' ride. Which is fine...but that wasn't what i signed-up for, and is not what i needed. I see no need to defend either them or myself...?

As for my amount of riding, as you can see from my schedule, i'm doing a fair number of workouts as well..and it's at least three days a week that i'm riding. If i provide details, and you choose to dispute me, at least have the decency to dispute what i've actually written!

Otherwise it seems you're just attacking me, and that'd be silly. ;)
