Addiction LXXVIII

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Remember, I'm old and don't do well in the heat so a nice short ride would be good. You wouldn't want to feel bad if I got heat stroke or something.
Done. All yours now, if you wish. Recall I got ripped off by about 6 miles yesterday so you may want some insurance miles.

Good ride today but HOT.

It’s a relatively new addition to the last generation Edge and Fenix series devices. Heat acclimation triggers above 72 ambient (tracking from the paired smartphone, not the temp sensor on the device*), and decays relatively quickly if you don’t train in heat, the altitude acclimation feature gets trigger above ~2700 feet (800 m) of elevation.

* I can understand this for wearable devices, but don’t know why they don’t read temperature from the edge.

It’s a disaster! I consider Habaneros to be one of the basic food groups. But we also had quite difficulty in getting our Habanero plants to thrive as well. I may try seedsbelize’s suggestions, but alas, it’s too late to start this year. Next spring hopefully.

In other news, I got to test the garmin’s crash notification (it sends a text to your emergency contact) feature this morning. It works! I was able to cancel it before it triggered the text to my wife.

It was an extremely slow moving fall. It was mostly my pride that got hurt, and somehow I managed to scrape the very top of the hood where hood, rubber hood cover and brifter meets, and the side of the right pedal. Considering it was a drive side fall, I’m quite lucky. Next time I know I’ll call out the kid sitting on the ramp to the sidewalk instead of trying to go through the narrow opening in the national park service gate that closes the road to vehicular traffic

Seems like I'm starting to get acclimated to the warmth. Not suffering quite as much as I was before. I'll see later today, though - not getting out until 9am and should be out through 1pm or so; forecast calls for low 90s again.
I'm betting it's just time x degrees above some threshold with some sort of decay function. Acclimation doesn't have much if anything to do with how hard you work. There is no cardiovascular adaptation other than expanded plasma volume.

Further, they don't take heat from indoors training. Sweated like a pig in a 100* garage trainer session as I used to? No heat acclimation, supposedly.

Didn't have enough Illy left to fill the filter, so topped it off with some Boxcar from Firecreek Roasters.

Yup! A great injustice if you ask me. My garage is usually borders between “simply unbearable” to “this is hell!” March through late October too.

That’s pretty much it, I think. Especially reinforced by their statement for altitude acclimation that one better leave their device on stand by feature, so it turns on at midnight and checks barometric pressure before it goes back to sleep.

For both of those features, the unit supposedly adjusts the VO2 max and training status for calculated acclimation levels.

I just use a keureg. Though when I make espresso I use Illy. We have an Illy store in colonial williamsburg that has some awesome coffee and treats.

I don't mind the heat, per se, but riding (and every other activity) really becomes a pain once sweat starts getting in my eyes. Once it starts, which may not take very long, it plagues me the rest of the ride.

I may need to revisit the head sweats thing I've been wearing. It's not cutting it (though I'm unsure if anything will).

Oddly the sweat problem is much worse in my right eye. So I end up riding along squinting through one eye. It's a mess.

Rode the Erie Canal Path with Mrs. rjones28 before lunch. It was 80 degrees or so. Many kayaks on the canal.
