The course was a rectangle. First side was 5 miles with cross/slight tailwind, second was 10 miles with tailwind, 3 was 5 miles with cross/slight headwind, 4 was 10 miles with headwind. You can see a pretty clear demarcation between the first half and the second

2 - trying to pace myself a little better on the when the going was good

3 - wherein I gave up and cut the longer sides short, mostly to avoid 10 miles of grinding in to the wind.

220w on the first go-round, 193 on the second, 166 on the third. Kinda like you'd expect.

There were elements of fatigue, pacing and soul crushing - when you turn the corner and see that the wind has kicked up and you know that you've got 10 miles until you're out of it? Ugh.

For me, there's a spot where I hit the top of a 2 milelong, 1.7% average rise, and as I hit the flat part at the top, there are no trees anymore to block the wind, and I know I'll have to fight it for 2 miles (weekday rides) or about 7 miles (weekends, riding from home), and I don't have the option to turn around or go a different way.

Thanks all; she is in prep and things are now in the hands of the doctors and whatever cosmic forces exist.

This facility is at least outwardly far better than the one I was in.

On the bright side, our daughter is coming up for the weekend to celebrate her birthday and Father's Day, and I'm excited about that.

I dropped $200 on a router plane plane today. A thing I wouldn't have dreamed of a year or so ago. I'm calling it a 70th birthday present to myself.

The best is when a storm kicks up and blows you home.

That happened once to me...

ls01 06-08-22 06:06 PM

Took today off the bike. As planned. Now it's pouring outside. Hope it stops before tomorrow.....

Kentucky was great, great weather, good fun. But I did have a strange thing happen on Sunday. 78 mile ride, approx. 10 miles in, I lost almost all power for climbing. My heart rate wouldn't come up over 100 bpm. I felt just fine, no pain, nothing to point at except I was pretty dehydrated. At around 60, 65 miles or so things returned to normal. Sunday, I was just fine.

Not that but I remember one century with 75 miles of tailwind. Just the one. Memorable

I don't know but the only salad with fries I was aware of was a steak salad. I don't see any steak so who knows.
