5 PM

Cycling 2:02:04 [4] 32.83 mi (16.1 mph) +1841ft
ahr:143 max:173 slept:10.0 weight:186lbs

Plan: 2 hour Fun Ride
Route: Mercer Island CCW
Physical: Legs felt great considering yesterday's effort. Still quite fresh at the start of the ride. A little tired by the end, but not bad. Leg is working like a champ without symptoms.
Mental: Very happy to ride today even if we had way too much wine last night. The ride was supposed to be punishment for our errant ways, but it actually helped ditch the hang over. Got really excited part way through the loop and upped the effort to bury a guy that was "riding with attitude" as CD put it.
Temp: 50 degrees, leg/arm warmers, wind shirt, new full gloves, toe warmers. Kept wind jacket on all ride. Toe warmth problem is fixed. Fingers froze. Generally too chilly with big efforts and then slower ride home. New clothing order placed!

Cycling (Benchmark - Cougar Zoo) 17:34 [5] 2.36 mi (8.1 mph) +1028ft
ahr:171 max:177 slept:7.0 weight:186lbs shoes: North Wave Tri Shoes

Route: Courgar Zoo

Start: Crosswalk at bottom of hill right at turn
End: Bus Stop
Bike: Cervelo RS
Weather: 48 degrees, overcast, fog, dry roads, no rain, no wind
Distance: 2.36 miles
Elevation Gain: 1028

Max Speed: 18.0
Average HR: 171
Max HR: 177
Average Cadence: 77
Max Cadence: 107
Time: 17:34
Notes: I did this climb completely backwards. Goal was to reverse split and finish strong. Instead, I pegged out at 174bpm within the first 45 seconds and tried to hold that the entire climb. I was telling myself that I should slow down and definitely heard Tom's guidance to minimize climb time, but I just didn't slow down. Funny enough, I don't know if I blew up or not. It certainly hurt, but the I maintained the effort pretty well. However, I think I can do this smarter and faster next time with a little less exuberance and a little more sefl control.

Cycling 2:35:32 [4] 41.4 mi (16.0 mph) +2407ft
ahr:141 max:171

Plan: Ride out to Benchmark climb
Route: Fremont - Cougar Zoo normal route - back down Lakemont - Fremont
Physical: Felt very fresh and excited to be riding. A little chily. Had to push hard to get home in time to get rain bike fit at Speedy Reedy. Good motivation. Leg did great - no symptoms.
Mental: Psyched.
Temp: 48 degrees, leg/arm warmers, wind shirt, short finger gloves with windstopper ski gloves over, ziplock bags on feet. Feet froze, need toe warmers. Hands great. Didn't take anything off and was ok if effort stayed high. Got really cold on descent of Lakemont and had tuque on even. Need a little more work on clothing.

6 PM

Cycling 1:49:35 [4] 32.85 mi (18.0 mph) +1706ft
ahr:145 max:167 slept:8.0 weight:187lbs shoes: North Wave Tri Shoes

Plan: z2/z3 1-2 hours
Average speed: 18.0
Route: Fremont - MI CCW - Fremont
Physical: Felt great. The legs are crazy fresh. Cardio felt good too. Impossible to stay in Z2, so I let it go a little but didn't go crazy. Leg did absolutely fine through entire ride.
Mental: I like the cool air. Loved riding this in the dark tonight. Happy to be back on the bike.
Temp: low to mid 50's. Leg and arm warmers with wind jacket for first 10 minutes and last 10 minutes. Good clothing choice for this temp if the effort can be maintained. A little cool if Z1/Z2 only, but wind jacket took care of that.
