Monday, 3/14/14 – Doc. Visit
Still feeling not so great, general dizziness and such. So, last Monday, I booked myself to see someone about it today – I never do things like that, which is probably not the most intelligent thing.
Sick! After a wonderful ride on Monday, I was down for the count, until about Saturday, when I decided it would be fun to try to summit Longs Peak again.
I can tell something’s not right with my body, when I’m riding around 5 mph, confused as to where I’m going, and what I’m doing.
This week saw a lot of consistent times out, with less rest days, as I start ramping up for my race on the 5th of April!
3/17/14 – Night time ride up Flagstaff
Starting the week off with an “easy” nighttime ride
1/18/14 – Sanitas Clockwise (PR)
Another lunch time sprint up and down Sanitas – better’d my time from last week, which is nice and was basically able to run the entire way up, which is awesome.
These things that I destroy.
3/10/14 – Sanitas
Don’t laugh, but I’ve started working at a shared working space. It keeps me on task, most of the time. The weather forecast said 70 degrees this day, and staying inside sounded like hell, so I thought I’d try that thing where you go do something active on your lunch break… thing.
2:00 am is a hell of a time to wake up, especially when you finally went to sleep at a little before midnight. Probably. I now wake up and think about my immediate surroundings. They seem almost Thoreau-ian – if the surroundings weren’t in their own immediate surroundings. I’m wrapped up in a sleeping bag, on top of a beat up sleeping pad that has slightly less patches holding it air tight, then countries it’s been placed on the ground of, all in a room just wide enough to outstretch my hands and not touch the opposite walls.
Defending my rep. on the bike.
Things are tough in the big city. Watch your back!
This week sees me slowly getting back into riding a bike more than 5 miles at a time, as my next race is now in less than a month!
Terribly strange resemblance
1/17 – Arvada
Started the week with a flat run, as I was still in the ‘burbs. Eyed the lone hill from my run the day before and thought, “There’s really no way anyone else should have a faster time than me on this thing”, so I made up a segment, and went for it.
A fairly mellow week – the Skyline Traverse from last week sort of took quite a bit out of me. I was also out of town for the last three days (brought my running and rocks shoes!).
Hoped to get into the mountains, but the weather (winds!
Another week of searching for elevation gain, as the cold weather descended on the Front Range. The Boulder O.S.M.Ps were relatively vacated of any casual activity, as most people used common sense to realize that ascended even the modest peaks around town in temperatures well below freezing was not in their best interests.
