    Midweek Bike Motivation...

    ...to brave the heat. Today's hellaciously hot ride:



    Speed is the color noted in the profile (blue=slow, red=fast), can you find where (or what mileage) I had the two, 24 ounces of Coors Lt? Hint: I did not drink them in sequence rather I had them 30-60 miles apart.

    The symmetry is beautiful. Reminds me of Madonna.

    There's a conspicuous slowdown at the bottom of the second trough (approx mile 25 & 75) that corresponds to exactly how long it should take to slam down a Silver Bullet.

    The dumb idea was sparked my a comment from a friend...."Stage 17 is like riding up and down Mt Lemmon.... twice" Honestly, it was one of the best road rides I have ever done. I felt pretty strong throughout.

    Classic.

    The first one is correct. I had the first Silver Bullet outside the General Store at Summerhaven. The second Silver Bullet, however, was not had near the 75th mile. Anybody have another guess?

    I rode up the 2nd time with only my bibs for a few miles, so my back got a little sunburned. That said, I usually sleep like a baby after a 100+ mile ride, last night was an exception. I slept horrible.

    I guess I should have said I had it after the 75th mile in my last post above. I bought it at the store at the 75th mile and rode down to windy point with it in the jersey to drink it and enjoy the view....mile 86 approx.

    You can as soon as you are back on the bike... when are you cleared to come back? Are you doing the trainer thing to stay in "bike shape" or just running?

    No biking until september sometime - although I'm itching to sneak in a few easy rides before that (don't tell my doc!) I haven't cheated yet.

    I've just been running again - not the same...

    Having lots of bike-riding-envy over here. Yeah it's the summer...but there are still SO many "cool" rides going on out there. I miss FLAG. I missed the CDC. I'll miss the Flag2GC & Crazy 88...

    Lots of envy...

    do you swim, or are you allowed? besides the obvious advantages, i really like the strength and stretching it gives my hands (and shoulders, duh). It helped me recovering from broken fingers\thumbs on each hand.

    I swim like a rock.

    But I'm in the pool everyday with the kids after work. It's a nice cool-down after going to the gym and also a nice stress reliever on the days I don't get to the gym.

    Quality time with the kids is a good thing.
