Training Ride – Hill repeats

Bike – BMC SL01 51-35 Qrings x 11-23 Ksyrium SL wheels

Ride Food – 1 bottle of Exceed, 2 shot blocks

Haven’t really been on the bike much as I’ve been VERY sick since Monday. What I thought were allergies turned out to be a full blown head/chest cold so I have been living in mucus land for a while. My body doesn’t respond well to meds, I can’t take a whole lot as it really messe with my body so I suffer through it with a spray of Afrin a day.

but I digress

I warmed up with a ride down the hill to Fauntleroy ferry, and around the park then started my repeats. I was surprised at how good I felt on the first one but wanted to keep a steady effort, never really coming out of zone 3. Each time I did it faster except the last which was 5 seconds slower then the previous and was in zone 5 the entire time. My chest was REALLY hurting and I thought I might have over done it a bit considering how sick I was.

Here is the map data, only 15 miles and 1600 feet of climbing but, hey… I just took a month off the bike AND I have been sick. Cut me some slack!

Off to go fix the bathroom sink!

  • I don’t think it’s that our bodies don’t respond well to med’s, it’s just the stubbornness of our Snyder genes. One, we refuse to admit we are sick and; Two, we would rather just suffer through with a clear head than drug ourselves into a medicated mess.

    I hate feeling groggy from cold medicine. I have to be pretty far down to take anything, let alone, go to the doctor.
