Weekend Report

This is what I consider a perfect Saturday. No stress, no rush. Life is good.

10 am - woke up (went home late and feeling sick)
11:30 am - bum around the house and started my long ride on the trainer
2:45 pm - stretch, protien drink, epson salt bath, shower
3:30 pm - prepared lunch, wolf it down, clean up
4:45 pm - snooze
5:30 pm - got up, do some chores
7:00 pm - change and head out to friend's b-day dinner

I did a lot of grinding on my bike. Start off on the mid ring and every 20 min I switch one gear over. RPM drops as well. From 90+ down to 70 at the end before I cool down. Even though I am grinding, I keep my HR low. This is still aerobic. It felt great though to just grind.

I haven't tried the spinerval DVDs yet. I am watching 24 Season 1 right now. Woah drama and action..love the sub plots.

I am feeling sick. Not full blown cold but I lost my voice this morning. I know I am not well when I have trouble swallowing. I am feeling 85% right now. Taking a lot of Vit C + hot water w/ lemon + honey. Of course, I am sleeping a lot. :). Finally, a chance to be lazy.

Here's my weekly summary:
Mon - Day off
Tues - Bike 45', Swim 32'
Wed - Run 35'
Thurs - Bike 60', Swim 30'
Fri - Run 45'
Sat - Bike 180' (my coach planned 2 hr 15 min, I just want to do a bit more)
Sun - Run 80'

Eight hours and change.

YOO HOO! I am the first! :)

That is a LONG ride on the trainer dude. Hats off too you for dilligence and determination!

Will pray for speedy healing, a sore throat can be a real bummer.

You KNOW you are a triathlete when your "perfect" Saturday includes a 3hr. trainer ride!

Nicely done! Hope you feel better soon....rest and C should do the trick!

Rachel said...

Very nice. I love the lounging and napping part. Important for training, ya' know.

A 3 hour trainer ride, while sick, nicely done. You're a better man then I. Wait I'm not a man...lol.

Feel better soon.

i like the idea of buying a season like 24 -- smart!

Colleen said...

Hope you're feeling better soon. You did a great training ride regardless! Have a great week.

Isn't it awesome watching 24 on DVD? I love how you can just hit "play" for the next episode when they try and be all sneaky with a cliffhanger. :)

Hi Cliff,

Sorry to hear you're sick too (seems like a lot of folks I know are). Good job on the trainer!

I came into the middle of session 1 of 24, I feel that session 3 is the best. especially the final ten minutes of the finally. I still remember it clearly as the best ending of series I have seen.

Great job with the workouts!! I hope you're feeling better.

We LOVE 24. It will keep you on the edge of your seat all season!
