GOOOOOD Morning World!!!!!!!!
Another great day to train. You know, it's weird to wake up in the morning and immediately start thinking about what kind of training is scheduled for the day. Even before the coffee is done, I'm already dressed in whatever training clothes I will be needing for the morning. Most people are still dreaming, no idea what they will do for the day. Here I am up and about.
So what did I do this morning? Well thanks to the almighty weather gods - this morning was a little colder than I expected, but I did go for a major bike workout. I did pure hillwork - mountain work. The local highway 50 leaves Canon City to the West and goes uphill for 8 miles. the grade is significant for the most part. I was able to keep up a pretty good pace and never had to fall into my 3rd chain-ring. I did have to get out of the saddle more than I liked but hey, I felt strong till the I got over the top. I used my training bike " Athena " for the extra weight. (don't' tell her that--shhhhh). After a half mile recovery on the top I sped down at about 43-44 mph until I got to the turnoff for Skyline Drive. Then I did another 2.5 mile climb up that route and headed back to my car after. All in all a good workout. I hope the weather continues to cooperate - this is a lot better than my trainer.
Tomorrow I am back in the pool, then a run in the afternoon. I am still working on my nutrition plan and it is coming along pretty good. I'll get that posted as soon as it is finished. Until tomorrow - keep training, keep warm, keep active and stay young!!!!!!
