posterchild66's Journal, 20 May 2012

Excellent weight in post "Cheat-Indulgence-Spike Day".

Yesterday started with a huge breakfast which was in my journal yesterday. It turned out to be a great day.

I had "excess energy out the wazzoo!" yesterday. I did have an energy drink after a my protein shake for lunch, I do that often though. I think this wild energy was from the calories consumed, and I had a burning desire to ride my bike. I had to fight it off until 330 or 4 when it gets below 100.

I took a bike ride at 1600 for 45 minutes. My usual 9 milers out and back. There is a hill in the middle in the form of a big bridge, puts a nice intensity on it. I did some reading about biking last night, and I would like to start training like it makes sense. Same stuff as running, increase by 10%, and one long ride a week. Interesting.

The problem I face here with biking, is space to do it safely. My 9 mile track is a nice side/walk causeway near the house that has multiple bike paths. After that, and I am in the "city" traffic, and the drivers here are "horrible". I think i realized last night I have to simply repeat this track if I want to go long, that or find some bikers nearby to ask.

Anyway, Y'all have a great day.

Great job on the bike ride - I vote for doing the lap twice to avoid the crazy drivers.. I can't believe you're fighting with 100 degree temps - yikes.. I think we hit 90 last Friday and it was ridiculous!!

Yay! Great job using that energy on the bike! Sounds like it was fun, except the heat. We're in the mid-high 80s already and hit low 90s today. BOO. Missing the cooler temps!
