Car free, but not idiot free.

Seems there's as many of them on bikes as in cars.

The 5:00 AM start mitigates a lot of that though.

26min up, 22 down on the Bear Gulch / Alambique loop in Wunderlich Park.

After a week of running every other day and biking/climbing the other days, I've somehow put on 3 or 4 pounds. Guessing it's the titanic glutes I'm building, as I ripped the seat of my pants warming up on a boulder problem at the gym this morning. (A makeshift climbing-tape interior patch somehow held up fine.)

Right outside my door I discovered a short section of urban trail going to a Rite Aid. It sunk in that it's fairly steep, and you could just run laps around the block for pretty-much full value. There is also a landscaped drainage of loose rocks on the route for ankle cartilage etc too. Been hitting it up alot in the last week.

Yesterday - 6 mile AM run - nice tempo, climbed in the afternoon, 2 mile PM run.

Today, hit the heat

Heard the team might be short a runner for the relay. Might have to do 4 legs. I will be doing more doubles, even if they are short, to get me legs and head accustomed to running tired.

Hour and 15 min. run at a place I hadn't been to in over a decade. Saw deer and three wild turkeys. Hilly and fun.

Well, I went to the century ride in Flagstaff last Saturday. As I was reading the pre-ride information I saw they had a cut-off time for the century riders.
2.5 hours to be at the 43 mile point, and 8 hours to complete the ride or be picked up by the sag wagon.

This bummed me out. I really wanted to do the full century. I know how fast I can ride, and making it to the 43 mile point in 2.5 would have required me to push way too hard early in the ride. My strategy was to really take it easy on the first half since the real climbing started at the 60 mile point.

Anyway, I switched and did the 65 miler instead. I did it in 4:24.00 which I was more than happy with. I am still bummed I didn't get to ride the full century (which I had trained for, and I know I could have made, only in more like 8.5 - 9 hours instead of the 8 hours alotted)

I just wish they could have put that information on the website with the course descriptions and ride profiles.

Now, I have to find another one . . .

Jaybro, I'm slow these days. I'll run with anyone willing to join the shuffle. Running at locations where I once ran well. So my tick list continues. Next stops are Huddart Park(Woodside) and The Forest of Nisene Marks(Aptos).

Good job Sully, old trails are the best, triggers all sorts of great memories.

Been averaging about 75 miles a day on the bike, 35 in the morning 40 in the evening with a two mile swim along the Gulf every other day.

Did my first-ever solo century this morning, no stops.

http://app.strava.com/activities/69541867

It's amazing what the body can do on very little food. I had a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, and all I had on the ride was 3oz of Hammer Gel (Espresso, tastes like chocolate pudding). Got a PR on a longish Strava segment in the last 10 miles (end of bike path to Golden Gate Bridge).

Here's the heart-rate breakdown:

Next I'm gonna ride my 30lb Sht Bike to the Giants game at AT&T Park. Wish me luck!
