nice view. Reminds me of looking out from Talcott mtn. I used to live in the Farmington Valley years ago.

Just under 62 miles. It was 98 today but was blessed with some clouds for the last 10 miles.

Jedneck 07-30-22 07:27 PM

Yesterday rode 108.5 miles with 12,500 feet of climbing. Actually, did a 4.85 mile cool down ride after so total miles for the day were 113 miles. I disagree with Greg Lemond, though: it does get easier and I get faster. I did the same ride last year and I was 1.5 mph faster this year (and it was easier).

73 and 5050. Gives me 291 and 22000 for week. 960 and 60000 for month

That's a huge frame. You must be about 6'8"-7'0" tall!!

32 mile ride today. Put the gravel wheels on the Domane. Hauled it closer to the limited gravel roads. Only 7 miles but the 35mm GR1 tires set up tubeless do roll smooth. Slower than the GP5000s but smooth.

fired up the grill for some meat sweats at dinner time.

I want that 72F. 6pm and it is 93F and the air quality is a moderate 60. Costco roto chicken for dinner.

Through beautiful Valley Forge park on the Schuylkill River Trail.

15.7 and 700 feet. Finally, the air quality was below 30 and the temperature below 90 - actually, below 80F. With a brief stop at Ballard Trader Joes as my friend said she needed Swiss cheese! :p

36 miles with 1500 with 2 firsts and 1 third on Strava segments for age group 65-70. One PR I have been hunting for a year and finally got it. Have several more local segments in my sights to get to the top of the old folks leaderboard. One dude is/was seriously strong on several segments and he is tough to take down, but got him one on today pushing HR to 187. Only had about 3 BPM left!

Epic Fail and Redemption
Went out to beat a 1.04 mile Strava segment for 65-70 YOs. Had to better an average speed of 24.5. After doing .25 mile with a headwind, could only muster 21-22 MPH and after the mid-point I knew there was no way. The legs don’t have it and probably never will unless there is a very strong tail wind.

BUT! I also had planned a 2.4 mile training climb with most grades ranging from 8 to 15%. So I moseyed over and decided to attack to see how I would do. I was not planning on doing anything special but got inspired at the base of the climb. Heart rate ranged from 165 to 180 but still had a surprising amount of energy over the entire climb. Caveat: this was probably my 10th attempt on this climb. So I hammered it and myself and after summiting I headed over to Rattlesnake lake to cool down and spin before the descent. The cool thing about the descent is that it is easy to hit well over forty except they throw in a stop sign, a 90 degree corner and center of the road guard shelters to dodge around. So the average speed in actuality is 35. Anywho, when I reviewed Strava, not only did I get two PRs but also managed the fastest time by 1:05 (minutes, not hours :D ) over the next 65-70 YO. To keep my ego humbled, I am/was the 74th fastest male, but I will celebrate being the fastest in my age group anyway. Got a second on another segment on the flip side of the climb which I wasn’t really trying. So now I will have to go back and see if I can take that one too. It’s a sickness. Hello, my name is RSbob and I have a addiction problem. Mileage for the day? Meh. Climb was 1200’.

20 miles out in a nasty headwind, 25 miles back, with most assistance from that gnarly wind. It really made my average mph look awesome!

Over 4K of climbing. Well done sir. Well done - yes I am breaking (braking) the the tradition of just hitting one button for a like.
