Saturday – Training Ride

Posted: Category: Life as I Know It 2 Comments

Saturday was planned on being a long and slow team ride.  We accomplished half of that.

It ended up being quite a bit faster than I planned.


Ride – 112 miles.  Home, Snohomish, Monroe and back home.

Bike – Flyte SRS2 50-34 x 11-21 Ksyrium SL wheels.

Breakfast – 2 eggs, pasta and cottage cheese

Ride Food – 1 large and 1 small bottle of HEED, 1 snickers bar and half a can of coke

Stats – 164 pounds, resting HR 46, max HR 199

I was only in serious trouble once as we road up High Bridge.  My body felt slow and weak and I couldn’t get it kicked over to keep up with Greg.  Thankfully Jeff D was in a similar state and we traded pulls.  Encouraging words go really far when your tongue is dragging on your front wheel.


We stopped off at a gas station and I ate the rest of my snickers and had some chugs of Greg’s coke and we headed home.  I started to get a little cross eyed in Fremont but I managed to survive.

  • That is my kind of breakfast before race or super long ride ( except for the eggs, just pasta and some cheese)!
