- Ride around the parc
Put up some stunning numbers today in a ride around the parc with Sheri.
- Third day in a row
I rode to the end of Meach lake and back with Sheri. It was 34km. I took about 1.5hr. It was 26C in Chelsea today and I was a bit over dressed. Nice day, great ride. My bum is sore though.
- Two days in a row
Today I got out for a nice ride around the parc with chris m. We had to walk a bit up fortune lake hill because there is still some snow-that surprised me.
- Big Ride Today
Almost 1hr, 24km, almost an entire loop of the Gatineau Parc. I was gonna dress like a dork… and I guess depending how you look at it I did. I wore biker clothes, but now that I’m fat I look like a dork in ‘em. Nice ride out there today, it was 11C or 51F [...]
- Gittin’ back into it…
I’m using this post to roll up three days of exercising in one. Friday I went for a 30min run. Saturday I rode my bike on the trainer for 30min and then went for a 30min ski. Today I woke up and my left knee was seized up — probably from the running. So, I [...]
Ok I can’t beleive I just spent about an hour watching youtube videos of banned and risqué commercials. This was funny… On another note, I rode 1.5hrs today with Matt J. and Dave B. I rode on Monday too. So that is two rides this week.
- Biking in Madison county
Well to be fair its not Madison county. But I’m in Madison Wisconsin now. The home of Schwinn and GT bikes, Saris-Cycleops – the makers of PowerTap. And Waterloo is nearby, where you find Trek, well Greg Lemond until recently and Gary Fisher etc, etc. Its kind of bike mecca here in a lot of [...]
- Holy heat wave batman…
I went out for another ride with the club today. But I had to turn around, the heat was killing me. It is 95F down here and super humid. I went back to host Tom’s house and drank a cold beer before I took off to the registration/accreditation and then the manager’s meeting. We drew [...]
- Hooray another club ride
Today I went out with the guys again on another easy post race-day ride. Eric was frustrated with Jake and Randers because they got all techno on him and loaded up a ride into Jake’s Garmin GPS. Eric just likes trusty ole paper maps. He thinks techmology is for wusses. In fact when Dwayner talks [...]
- Club ride
Wilmington Deleware, the day after the Commerce Bank Lehigh Classic, rest day club run with the guys. We did about 2hrs. I’m not sure how many kms, but probably around 50km. I actually found it pretty comfortable, until near the end we had to go up a stiff hill and I overcooked it. But I [...]
- A rare occurance
Today I did one loop of the gatineau parc. 21km, 1hr and 8 mins. I went with Sheri. That is a pretty slow pace and that is not the rare occurrence. For some reason today when I rode I decided to wear a helmet! I have no idea why, but I think its because I [...]
- Wa bonk
Today I did my favourite ride. But I’m not quite ready for it and got pretty tired in the last 30minutes and came home with a pretty bad bonk. Maybe that’s good, I haven’t bonked in a long time and it kind of felt good. Anyhow the ride was amazing and I did it in [...]
I’ve been riding around Chelsea Quebec for a long time. The ‘loop’ around the Gatineau Parc is classic, but I’ve done it so many times it gets boring. I try to create little hybrids of it that I find more entertaining. Here was today’s ride. All in all it doesn’t really carve that much distance [...]
- biking… with …
As the youngman would say – my lady friend. I did a hybrid loop of the Gatineau parc in 1:20 or so. I’ve ridden outside twice and my crotch is so tore up from saddle soreness I can barely sit down. I think I’m just gonna try to keep riding 4 times a week and [...]
- Everthing is closed in Chelsea on Tuesday
Today I went for my first ride outside. It was amazing. Not a cloud in the sky, 22C. I rode around the Parc de la Gatineau and there wasn’t a car in sight. For someone who loves Bike-ling as much as I say I do… maybe I should do it more often. NOTE: Everything is [...]
- Get my bike on
45 minutes on the trainer. 167W average, 450 Kjs. Did 2x10min. I’m not losing much weight, but my pants are starting to fall off, so I’m getting leaner and building muscles…. errr or at least I guess that is what’s happeing. I’m down to 192lb.
- Bad day on the bike
Knocked out a big 30 minutes on the trainer today. But I felt like ass… I thought this exercising thing was supposed to make you feel better and better. This was my worst feeling day on the bike. 316kjs, 174W average for 30 minutes. I kinda feel like I should punish myself and do a [...]
- First double day
Today I rode and ran. Started with a 35min trainer ride, similar to the others where I warmed up and then did two blocks at effort. A 15 min step: 5 min @ 180w then 5 min @ 190w then 5 min @ 205w. I rode easy 5 min and then did 10 min @ [...]
- Feeling surprisingly good
And looking remarkably fat. 30 minutes on the trainer, which is 10 more than the first time. Warmed up easy, felt like I was pedaling nice. Did a Russian step: 5min @ 180W, 5min @ 190W and 5min @205W. Rode easy 5min. Finished with 5 more minutes at 215W or so. Did 318Kj for the [...]
- Today I rode
Today I rode the trainer. It took a while to drag all the crap out of the basement. I like to have things setup just so: need a fan, need music, need a matt under the trainer, need a towel on the bars, need the digits. Digits are critical to not going mental on the [...]
