Saturday May 18 #

Walking 54:00 [2] 3.2 mi (3.6 mph) +558ft
weight:150.2lbs (rest day) shoes: Hoka Clifton 9

Squak Mountain road walk: Double lolli day. I always start a walk with a lollipop, but today I took a second one. I was headed up the hill and I knew I would be tired from lots of hard riding, so I gave myself a bonus.

Friday May 17 #

Cycling 2:43:00 [4] 36.0 mi (13.3 mph) +5040ft
ahr:129 max:155 weight:150.4lbs shoes: SW EXOS 2022

Cougar Climbs: Leadville. Not as in legs of lead. The legs were not great, but good enough for my second 5k' of Cougar climbing ride in the last 4 days. My 10,345' just beat out Leadville, CO, at 10,158' of elevation. I guess Leadville is the (not quite) Two Mile High City. Today's (very steep) Toughies: 164th-Lakemont/Belvedere/Pinnacle/Cougar towers/West Summit/Somerset the hard way/HV-Summit/Montreux. cE8.4 RE 8-8.5 9.5-9 on Trident BV-Pinn-towers 9.5 on LM-Summit

Walking 41:00 [1] 2.5 mi (3.7 mph) +200ft

Tracy Bye-Bye. Tracy is heading to Seabrook with friends for the weekend, so I listened to her plans while we walked:)

Wednesday May 15 #

Cycling 2:58:00 [3] 53.5 mi (18.0 mph) +2261ft
ahr:123 max:144 weight:150.8lbs shoes: SW road 2013

Mercer Island-Seward-BOE-CRiv: Directional sequence. I love following a hard climbing ride (yesterday's Cougar climbs) with an endurance ride on one of my "Standard 50's" routes. I'm tired from the climbing, but not too tired to enjoy a nice cruise. It doesn't work so well in the opposite direction. cE7 RE 7 HR

Tuesday May 14 #

Cycling 3:01:00 [4] 40.2 mi (13.3 mph) +5345ft
ahr:128 max:155 weight:151.4lbs shoes: SW EXOS 2022

Cougar Climbs: Guinness on this? It's now almost 1000m since I switched from double sided Speedplay pedals to single sided LOOK Keo blades. Most of the time I smoothly clip-in, but I make a mess of it occasionally. I rarely stop on a ride, and I ride in the MON (middle of nowhere) a lot, and I know I've gone 50m without clipping out of the pedals. The record must be however long the longest pro stage race has been since LOOK invented clip-less pedals in the 80's. Those are the only people who don't stop to pee. Today's mile of Toughies: Somerset/HV-Summit/Coug towers 2x/Sky Country/Montreux/Zoo partial (just enough for the mile') cE8.3 RE 8-8.5

Monday May 13 #

Walking 44:00 [1] 2.7 mi (3.7 mph) +250ft
weight:152.4lbs (rest day) shoes: Hoka Clifton 9

Sycamore sTroll: Whew! I don't usually feel tired on an easy walk, but I was from the get-go. Lots of hard riding called for a DOB.

Sunday May 12 #

Cycling 3:48:00 [4] 65.7 mi (17.3 mph) +3160ft
ahr:127 max:147 weight:152.6lbs shoes: SW road 2013

Paradise Valley-Maltby-High Bridge-Tolt-Duthie Hill: Numero Uno. I'm somewhat of a sunglass junkie. I've tried many different shades of lenses, including at least a dozen Oakleys. The Prizm Daily Polarized with 14% VLT is the best I have ever used for cycling in bright conditions. Any darker and it would be too dark in the shade. Any lighter and it wouldn't be dark enough for riding straight into the bright sun. Polarization cuts the glare and effectively makes the lens darker in bright conditions without compromising under overcast skies. Last but not least, the subdued rose-purple tint on a grey base adds contrast and is a wonderful way through which to view the world. cE8+ RE 6.8 climbs SS Sunday early morning is the way to go. Thank you Tracy, for encouraging me to do a long ride on your birthday. ILY!
