I decided to finally "check in" on this thread for the first time, as I just started using Strava app (on iPhone), and it's a hoot!
Here's a solo road-bike ride I did today:

Still had 37% battery left. ;-)

Of course I'll do Hood to Coast again - but my team's application was not chosen in the lottery this year. Sleep deprivation contests are my favorite. THe Cascade Lakes Relay will be an interesting relay change of pace. I'm thinking that the smaller field and more remote course will give it a different kind of charm. I hope we do get routed to see many lake views.

I had knee surgery 14 years ago. They said I would never run again. That translates into one marathon every two years instead of two per year. Sully, you can reclaim the runner inside you again.

Fabulous run today. The Rose Garden is all a-bloom. 8 miles including the Arboretum and the Rose Garden. For an 8 mile city run, 5 miles are on trails or park streets with virtually no traffic.

Legs are starting to feel more lively. Today I enjoyed it instead of lived through it. Celebrate. Happy dance.

I've been getting in shape doing laps to the local taverns but it does take its toll.

Stupid bike.

Biking alot this summer. Enjoying it tons...easier on knees than my beloved running. Trying to get at least 2500-3200 feet in every couple days.
This morning, HOT, 2800 feet of climbing around Lower Mt. Madonna...with a stop at Gizdich Ranch of course! This is a short but steep ride (20 miles). On cycling GPS "laps" are in 5 mile increments.

I've been lazy since the Zion traverse, but last weekend did 26.2 from Lake Hodges to Woodson and back. It was 26 exactly, so we did .1 each way to the gas station to grab a beer.

No sooner did we open it did 5-0 pull up... oops.

32.3 miles run so far this week, 2 hours swimming in the ocean. Training for Sat/Sun back to back 10ks in less than 4 weeks. Try to PR the second. The heat always kills me in July races, I'm trying to train above the HM level to compensate.

Summer doldrums......in Ouray for the next month. Aerobic and climbing on alternate days. First time I am doing something that can be construed as training.....shhh!
The aerobic is a hike that starts at 7,700 and goes 2,800 vertical (short version) or 4,700 (long version) steep! Climbing is sport on three different types of rock.....outdoor gym. Might even project a route.....first time for that.

Rehabbing a groin pull but still logging slow miles. Doing a 5 mile race on the 4th of July to see what progress has been made. Looking to meet up with those who will be doing the Moab trail race in November. I am planning to do the half marathon, and want to climb some routes the week following if anyone is interested.

Aerobic damage control continues with xc ski training which involves running, hiking, climbing, summer skiing, roller skiing, biking, beer drinking, and eating.

One of these years I'll get fit.

500 mile bike ride on a 100 lb heavily laden touring bike, across Colombia toward Ecuador. So far most has been downhill (ha). Bogota is at 8500 feet, and I had to drop down to 1000 feet elevation. NOW the climbing starts. I hate to think what this is going to do to my lungs. Quito is at 9000{ plus. :)

Bought a heart rate monitor the other day, holy moley was I out of touch on the data. I recommend everyone to step up and get one. Good news, the silly watch thinks I'm 25 due to max heart rate and shagocious durability.

OK, I'm about to register for my first century ride. Its in Flagstaff on 7/20. I'm going to try to ramp up my training, and try to get a few 50+ mile rides in.

I'll be using my Easy Racers recumbent. These things are ideal for long distance riding since your body is in a much more natural position.

I'm a little concerned. Last time I did a long ride (45 mile mt bike ride with lots of climbing) I developed horrible cramps in my legs after about 2 hours. Not fun at all. I put it down to going in dehydrated, and pushing too hard in the early part of the ride.

Ok, I'm off to get a long ride in this morning before it gets too hot . . .

Edit: Whew! 42 miles, 3 hour ride. I'm ready for a nap . . .

Insanity's Polymetric Cardio Circuit is on tap for this afternoon although so is 94 degree temps. A sweat feast is insured, I suspect.

I was a tad disappointed with my slog up St. Helens yesterday. My feet got so hot, I was not moving well and needed to rip my shoes off, bury my feet in snow.

TOday is suppoed to be wicked hot. I went for my run very early - lunch at 9:30 today!!! TO my surprise and delight, my legs felt pretty fresh. Instead of staying in the sun by the river, I opted for the hilly Washington Park route. 8 miles felt great, no legs of lead. I recall many times when the day after a volcano slog, I suffered through a flat five miler.

Verdict - aerobic capacity OK. Anaerobic capacity - lacking......

Plenty of fluids, Hudon. I felt a little woosey after my 3 hour ride, and it went from 6:30 - 9:30 AM. The temp hadn't hit 90 yet. I let myself get a little dehydrated.

Climbing has ruined me. It has taught me how to go without water (you went without water because there wasn't any. It was your punishment for moving too slow)

I can still do it, but I always pay the price later.
