i am suffering. not from a hard training day on the bike, but from Mother Nature. i turned 30 and started having some mild Spring time allergies. at 35 they are now interrupting my life. since i don't have time for this and every over-the-counter medication known to man that fights allergies doesn't work for me, i will spend lunch time at the Urgent Care today.
i need quick fix. three day weekend. Saturday is clear and free. Colorado is on my brain. i will be riding and putting in some serious efforts.
i need a pump me up right now. despite my recent lack luster efforts on the bike my numbers to date show i am headed in the right direction.
1-1-09 to 5-17-09
- 109 total hours of bike, trainer, and running
- Bike = 1017 miles for 61 hours
- Trainer = 46 hours
- Running = 2 & 1/2 hours for 15 miles
1-1-08 to 5-18-08
- 75 total hours of bike, trainer and running
- Bike = 572 miles for 34 hours
- Trainer = 31 hours
- Running = 9 hours for 61 miles
thirty four hours ahead of last year. all winter focused on building the engine for steady long climbs. Four weeks to go.
thinking about it, i guess the training is likely the reason my allergies are blowing me up. an extra 30 hours out on the rode sucking down the Spring Time air = le suck.
be safe, ride on, and enjoy the holiday weekend.
