century plus on Saturday June 30

Left at 6am on this one to beat the heat but still hit upper 80's by the end of the ride. Good power overall, and picked it up the last half with some 'challenger' on the bike trail. I love when I politely pass riders and they seem to almost take it as a challenge to stay with me. Its fun to ramp up the power to 250, 300, 350 and then 400. That will usually drop them. If you're going to ride my wheel, at least say so.

Cleves Time Trial

I rode solo at 5:30, just as the rain stopped. Did my minimal;a 20 minute warmup in a light shower after the major thunderstorm ended. Air was cool at 69 degrees, density altitude at 1700, so not a fast night. Power was pretty good. Just tried to ride steady. Only my third ride this season on this course.

Ohio 10k and 5k time trials

In Portsmouth, Ohio.
Kind of some crazy courses for these. The 10k is the L shaped, 3 laps, and the 5k is the oval, 2 laps. Very hard to get the power and speed up with so many turns but was still able to get the gold in both and the also the fastest times overall.  Went through the turns as fast as possible and then hit the power on every straight section. Also had some heavy winds from the southwest just to add to the fun.

6x3 steady state

These were scheduled for tomorrow but given the weather and some photography assignments tomorrow I did them today after my classes. Held well above the target power of 326.

Smoky Man Century

Too nice of a day not to do this ride again! Sunny. 60-90 degrees. Felt a little tired give the race on Tuesday, two classes and the ride on Wednesday, the 12 mile hike yesterday and then this but finished it out. 100 miles and over 10,000' of limbing. Will take the weekend off.

Blue Streak

Had a good ride tonight. Best time since 2016 and second best time since 2014. Not sure where I placed in the age or overall but had to be pretty good. I think its helped not riding so many of our local time trials. I feel like I have much more energy.

Day before the Blue Streak

I did some endurance today along with 5 x 30 seconds with 5 minutes between. Just a good way to get the legs prepped for tomorrows race in Dayton. Feeling pretty rested after a light weekend (40 miles on Saturday outside and then an easy 20 inside yesterday). The Ohio Senior 5k and 10k are a week from this Saturday so will start a taper next week. This week will actually be pretty big with some hiking and riding in TN/NC but plenty of time to recover next week.

about the same as yesterday

under overs, 5 minutes/ 1 minute 5 min /1 min, 12 min off....three times

a little under on the under and a little over on the over, so pretty even

3 x 5k efforts, inside

Held about the same speed but lower on power than at the recent IN games. Speed would be as good because of the indoor even pacing with no turns. Power lower as I'm not as fired up as I would be at a race. Only about 2-3% off on the power.
