That’s what we all said!

Well the rain was not supposed to be in until late in the day, they lied. I got caught with 25 miles to go in cold temps and rain. It sucked. But I did 70 today.

Quite cool at the start and a horrible wind day today. Did 55, felt like 100. Along the way, came across a Alhinga, also known as a snake bird, that had fishing line tangled in his beak and found out later around the neck. I stopped to try and catch it and a couple were walking along the path I was taking to go under the highway, and the woman just happened to have a pocket knife in her purse. I held the bird as she cut, or should I say, attempted to cut it. The knife was really dull, but eventually cut it off. Released the bird and the little putz did not even say thanks. Not a squawk, nothing. All in all, a very hard day, but better than being stuck inside riding the trainer.

32 and 20 miles doing Zwift Grand Fondo training. 150 miles into the training series with several weeks to go.

I find it interesting that no matter how easy the workout or how difficult they always average out with in a watt or two. Good planning on their part.

73.42 miles, flatter than usual with 3,586 feet. felt like more hills than that, it's been over a month since i had a >70 mile ride.

So I was sick all last week, but felt better today. Once I ended my work day, I thought I would go mow my yard, but I did not feel like dealing with the 85 deg temps today, so I said, I will ride my trainer. I was not sure how I would feel, so I picked a short 10 mile flat to slight downhill route... figured piece of cake.... 2.5 miles in, called it a day, legs had zero power and no desire to push the pedals. Now I feel like taking a nap.

I guess my body has not caught all the up to my brain yet.

keep hydrated. seems like my body doesnt like to maintain hydration. I can moderate three gallons in a day, but my time spent racing to the urge to release increases x7.

Yea after about 3 days of nothing but sleep, I think I slept 22 hrs one day, I was massively dehydrated and I too drink 2 to 3 gallons of water and crystal light green tree a day. Once I started getting my liquid back in, what I had left in my system started to exit. It's been a weird experience for me, very uncommon illness experience. I lost about 10 lbs, so I figure that might be playing a large part of the lack of power and and effort. I can generally suffer on the bike as I ride through strong headwinds like an idiot all the time, but I just flat gave up quickly. I am hoping I will be good by Saturday, I really want to take a ride outside, but I just noticed that the weather is now calling for rain with this front pulling through tonight, so the trainer might be better to test the recovery.

Yesterday 2/11 was the anniversary of the formation of the first Bicycling Club in the US. I rode 30 miles in celebration, it was nice in Omaha and I saw a lot of bicyclists out and about.

Troul 02-12-23 09:29 AM

past couple of weeks have been rough. felt like a bag of bricks were thrown at me initially. Hammered thru that... Lately, feels like a Mack truck has been blasting thru me. Sitting the next few days out.

Whatcha got? Not that I want it. Sorry you are out of it.

Rode 12 miles today on my MTB in Levis (not recommended) trying to track down a couple I met while walking the dog - but no such luck.

Nice weather this weekend. I ran and then walked the dogs yesterday. Today I threw the touring bars back on the old MTB and took it out for 23 miles on the trail. Windy all the way out and lots of soft muddy stuff on the trail so it was a workout. Very fun! 😊

57 miles, 4,500 feet. perfect day for it.

diphthong 02-14-23 03:10 AM

34-spot. windy and coolish. did treat (or trick?) myself with a medium round table pepperoni and sausage pizza at mile 25.
snarfed 7 of 8 slices and galumphed back home.

andcarrotrope 02-18-23 06:15 PM

8 miles on the trainer. Im going to do my first outdoor ride of the year tomorrow, yeah!

jaxgtr 02-18-23 10:19 PM

After 2.5 weeks of illness and the body recovering, I did some inside stuff during my recovery, but finally felt good enough where I decided I wanted to try and outside ride. Wouldn't you know it, the temps drops 35 deg and the wind came up to stupid 20+ from the NE. Did not care. Had to put on my leg warmers and long sleeves and went out for 25 miles for my first outside ride since Jan 28th. It was miserable, but it was not on a trainer.
