No Rapture=More Pain

Just a quick update from training land. Finished up another week with six hours of riding and a 3 mile brick run this weekend. On Saturday, got a 2 hour ride in with as much zone 3 as possible. Followed that up with a brick run with the wife. Originally, I was scheduled for the long ride on Saturday, but I just had to get some fishing in with the kids. Sunday, I was up at 5:00 for the 4 hour pain session. Went pretty well despite my fear of going completely insane.

I would show some cool Garmin data, but for some reason, my 310xt has stopped reading the Powertap early into my last two rides. I’m going to have do some investigating, and most likely, do some money spending.

Overall, training is going very well, even though its been a nightmare juggling work and training this time around. Weight is sitting right where I want it at about 143. Sunburn is healing…I think. It’s really getting hard to be on the trainer with the weather so great out lately. But, a man’s got to do what he’s got to do to avoid disappearing from the family all weekend. Not exactly safe to be out on the road at 5:00 AM. 5 more weeks to go. Three more weeks to taper. 1 more minute until sleep.
