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.

My goal for 7/1/13 was 1000 miles, and I'm at 963. I'll take it.
Only 97 here in Moab and a five mile work trip left to go, today!

One of the things I like about running, is the immediate gratification.

I ran 11 miles the 23rd, first double digit since March and my body was freaking out for the next 30 hours.

Ran 12 yesterday, one week later, and it went down nice and clean. Yardwork after.

Yes, don't worry about that, I'll be drinking before, during and after!

Oh yeah, 50 miles in about 3:50. I feel much better than I did on Monday after a 42 miler. I even had some juice left in the final 10 mi.

So, this century ride is on Saturday 7/20. I'm thinking I want to push my mileage up to at least 75 mi. If I can get at least 2 of those in before the event, I shouldn't suffer too bad on century.

Question: How many days rest should I get between my last long training ride and the main event?

I'm thinking 2 or 3.

Any insight would be appreciated.

You should have seen me sweat yesterday, it was simply impressive, even if I do say so myself!

Your now that saying " that which does not kill me, makes me stronger"? Well, I sure fricken' hope so!
