On tap for the next 4 days seems to be spring like weather with temperatures in the 50's all 4 days. I will take my lunch break today and head out for a ride to get in a quick 60-90 minutes. I'll be going to Alexa's track meet after work, so no time for a ride then.
I am waiting for a call from Rassy's that my Roubaix has landed at the shop and is assembled. Could be today. Could be tomorrow. I hope to get it in time for at least a couple of rides this weekend.
I feel leg a begging critter waiting for the shiny red bike...
In other words, I am filled with anticipation, curiosity of the size and fit, and of course the ride out on the pavement itself.
Training Week 12: Rest & Recovery Week
This is my final week in the 12 week base period I have been through that started on December 31. The last two weeks were fairly decent loads in terms of TSS and I needed to take Monday entirely off. I did weigh in at 184.2 Monday morning, so I didn't quite make my sub 184 goal. Maybe this week. Lower body weights were scheduled on Monday, but I moved that workout to Wednesday morning so I could recover from the 5 1/2 hours on the bike that I did on Saturday and Sunday.
Monday: Off/Recovery spins via 2 dog walks
Tuesday: 60 minutes Zone 2
Wednesday: Excellent Lower Body Workout!!! I hit my off season high goal weights on the squats.
Thursday: 60-90 minutes easy ride outside
Cleaning up the JET 9
The mud is/was a glued on mess on the JET from Saturday mornings ride at Lake Ahquabi.
I got most of the big chunks off this morning after the dog walk. It's due for some soap and water, a full lube and tune-up to get ready for XC racing next weekend. The RIP is clean and ready to race, so that might be what I reach for first depending on trail conditions come next weekend. But I will clean up the JET and get it ready as well. I learned my lesson to not ride in that kind of mud again. Yuck.
