    good 5 x 3 min @ 123% FTP 00:50

    I was a little concerned about my ability to do this one given how tired my legs felt this morning. I guess being up for a few hours, having a meal and a couple cups of coffee helps. I am working f... read more

    good Sunday Stroll, Part 2 8.89 mi 00:42 12.6mph pace

    After some post-ride espresso and a pastry at the host's place, we rode back to East Lyme. Fun day of mostly easy riding.

    Largely easy jaunt around Lyme/Old Lyme area with a group of folks practicing for the Tour de Lyme ride in May. Took a little off-road through Nehantic State Forest on the way to the ride start. Wh... read more

    good Easy spin at the Y 7.5 mi 00:30 15.0mph pace

    Total technology glitch today. Multiple failed attempts at loading this workout to my 810. Ended up building the working on connect.garmin.com and uploading it that way. Took far longer than I had ... read more

    good 5 x 3 min @ 123% FTP 00:47

    The first interval went by well enough but each interval after that started to suck progressively earlier into the 3 minutes. By the last one I was spent after the first 30 seconds but managed to h... read more

      Thanks, Garth! I ended up spending about 12 minutes at > 95% VO2max and 5 minutes at 100%. No wonder it hurt so much. :)

      Today was supposed to be a rest day, but I decided to rest yesterday. I have another interval day tomorrow. Should be interesting to see what I can do.

    good Drills, drills, and more drills 2300 yd 00:53 40:10 pace

    I figured it would be most beneficial for my "first" time back in the water to work on some form drills. So, it went a little something like this:

    1400 mixed drills, mostly focus... read more

    great Hills and Critters 43.2 mi 02:33 17.0mph pace

    What a fabulous morning! 3100 feet of climbing, deer and turkeys, sunshine with not as much as a breeze. Who could ask for more! I felt stronger on this ride than I think I ever have. The hills tha... read more
