bike hills 2:18:00 [3] 60.46 km (2:17 / km)

Got my Softride back yesterday with new cranks, a new man's seat with the cut away and replacement derailer until mine is fixed. Bought a Tour de France yellow cycling hat for under my helmet and wore it last night watching the replay of the stage I'd watched live in the morn. I'm psyched by Lance et al. So today I watched the Stage and then out on the bike. I immediately felt great and just did my mtn route and then explored new roads to get back home. Wanted to do 3 hrs but wasn't watching the clock. I'm back in the saddle again.

run hills 2:00:00 [4] 22.0 km (5:27 / km)

I ran with Cricket, JAG and Valley girl through the woods and around Loon and Lake Paul. These women are EXCELLENT runners and love nothing better than to charge up hills. Luckily I'm getting stronger and love to charge down the hills too. I tried not to race because I'm training for long and consistent. I did charge up and down the hills and raced them the last 1 km through the woods. It was FABULOUS. I loved it. I'm really into the training now.

bike hills (mountain bike on road) 2:11:14 [3] 52.5 km (2:30 / km)

Since the racing bike won't be fixed until Thursday afternoon, the mtn bike is the only alternative. So, I did the identical route I use the racing bike with--on the nubbies. What a rush to be charging up the south mtn and then zooming down the other side in 56.4 kms/hr. Even with a head wind I averaged 20.9 kms/hr. If was rough in spots and my butt is killing me, but I LOVED being out in the sun/wind/summer.

bike hills 1:14:00 [3] 38.38 km (1:56 / km)

We've been trying to get out on the bikes for a 104 km ride for 3 days. Canada Day it was pouring and we should have run, but just did inside chores. We are both lethargic. Saturday, Ironking wanted to do chores first, and you know how that goes.

So here I was, psyched for a long training ride with my coach. I was really tired for the first 21 minutes but then zoomed past him and was having fun. I BROKE THE DE-RAILER shifting up a hill. Ironking tried to fix it twice and then we had to bike back in the large ring but only in the middle. So, I had to coast a lot. Anyhoo, we got in 36+ and I still averaged 23.9 kms/hr even with that. I was happy to have done it.

bike hills (mountain bike on roads) 1:00:00 [3] 21.15 mi (2:50 / mi)

It was such a beautiful day and since the Ironman looms, I realized that I had to get out on the mtn bike if nothing else. I JUST sold my wonderful other racing bike--just when I needed it. Anyhoo, I zoomed up the south mtn and sped down it in 56 kms/hr. What a rush. I remembered how much I love the wind rushing thru my helmet. Biking with nubbies on roads is a good work out. I'm sure it's all good:)
