Quick ride today. 17 miles and 1500’ climbing. For some unknown reason, climbing really kicked in and was almost effortless. Claimed two fastest segments for my age group on two climbs.

Did 20 miles round trip this morning before Nicole moved in. A couple of steep inclines I thought my heart is going to pop.

Only 17 miles today... but with 2,000 feet of climbing and descending. Ever since Yarnell Hill tried to kill me on a June day in 1994 (heatstroke, schmeatstroke), I've returned on cooler days to test myself against the steady 7% grade and twisty descent (hello, Mr. Elephannnnttt!") And I think I did OK today.

rsbob 11-11-22 10:11 PM

Never pedaled so hard to go so few miles.

37 miles before the snow dropped.

rsbob 11-13-22 03:13 PM

29.92 flat miles at an easy 15 MPH. Nice but boring. Today I’m taking care of gardens for winter.

mschwett 11-13-22 04:44 PM

77 miles, 4,000’. beautiful clear winter-ish day.

jaxgtr 11-13-22 05:28 PM

Did 78 on Saturday, got most in before the wind picked up, so that was good.

diphthong 11-14-22 07:02 PM

easy 24-spot for the first miles in over three weeks.

rsbob 11-14-22 09:01 PM

41 miles, with 1100’ upwardness. Mid to low 40s…. Still warming up after an average speed of 17 MPH

Well I did go to the University of Oregon, so that should be quite easy. Quack!

SpeedyBlueBiker 11-17-22 08:24 PM

I took out my "rain" bike and rode 26 miles today on the Sammamish River Trail. Sunny and 52 dropping to about 46 when I got home around 4:00pm. Took off my sunglasses and it was much lighter out.

rsbob 11-17-22 10:07 PM

Did my second group ride at my ideal pace. Hung with about 10 others, mostly Canadians, for the hour. Will start doing the Thursday ride regularly starting in Dec.

Nice pedaling :thumb::thumb:

Did a 20.02 mile group ride with me, myself and I this morning starting at 1:20AM. Super cohesive group. :D

Can’t go wrong riding with the “Royal We”. But at 1:20AM? We need to talk. ;)

rsbob 11-19-22 12:25 AM

Started a new performance builder app today called Pillar per another poster’s recommendation. I took my Strava, Zwift and Garmin data for the last month, analyzed it and said today is a rest day. Who was I to argue with the almighty AI? In fact it said, my performance was negative since I have been pushing it. Can only go up from here.

Don't think any amount of TALKING is gonna help cause I was out voted by me and myself and WE went out at 1AM this morning for 23.32 windy miles.

AI might be pseudo-smart but it wasn’t smart enough to know that I cannot tolerate a 2 hour stretch at a time day after day on a trainer. My bum would never recover. An hour to 1.5 is my limit. We’ll see what the HELP facility provides since I cannot change it myself. Stay tuned. And another rest day. Maybe I will make it from negative numbers to a big zero on the fitness scale today.

A warm 46 F. Nice and sunny. Road 28 easy road miles.
