In my ever ending quest to get slower by training, I lost time again in the TT.  Excuse this time?  Brock.  I could have fallen asleep on my way out there.  By the end my legs felt like I was wearing my work boots covered in mud.  I was glad to finish.  Very little riding in the last 3 weeks and a real lack of quality sleep.  Good news?  Katsu's genius scoring system has me in second place!

Back to some training.  Ran twice on Friday.  Only 2 miles in the morning until I got rained out, so I did an afternoon set of intervals.  I am running a 300m in what I would race the 400m 18 years ago...

I bough a used set of rollers from craigslist today.  Took 10 minutes to get used to them.  Did a quick 30 minute workout.  More work and more attention than the regular stationary trainer (and less boring).  Should make me a better rider.

I skipped the Tuesday Time Trial #4 today and it looks like I won't be able to bike to work on Friday for Bike-to-Work day either. But, I have a great reason. Pleased to announce the arrival of Brock Edward Mansfield. Born May 17. No small potato at 8 lbs 14.6oz.

No baby yet

Still waiting.

Haven't been able to do any training at all this week.  Tuesday TT was postponed to next week due to rain.  I am going to be hurting for sure.  Muskingum Mayhem is Saturday followed by the Wilkseville to Wilkseville Grand Fondo this Sunday.  Enjoy, sorry I won't make either.

Training Woes

Time trial results are in... I lost a few more seconds to my first time.  I was even a bit slower than when I had a respiratory infection.  I have been doing a lot of running and riding and I am only able to go further at the same slow pace.

Played soccer on Saturday.  A friend called and they needed another player.  20 minute halves on the U12 sized field.  Wow I am sore today.

Feeling old.
