      Tough ride , big miles= bigger burger. The training we do allows us the guilt free consumption of our favorite foods. I hope you fries with that.

    Purposely slow, easy run to work out the soreness from yesterday's strength session. Guess that's what I deserved after putting strength training on the back burner for a few weeks.

      It's amazing how millimeters matter when it comes to bike fit. Just the smallest adjustment can make a world of difference. And I'm getting really peeved at Ma Nature. I've already had one tri cancelled, and now more rain in the forecast killing hopes of OWS experience before next one. Sigh.

      Wow that's quite the swing. Yikes. 55 ends up being so chilly on a bike. Totally different from running. Good news on the saddle. I wonder if it crept down a bit over time. Mine does and I have to adjust it occasionally. I think a mind day post ride nap should be mandatory.

      I found the Adamo too wide for me. I know some folks zip tie the front rails together to pull the nose in narrower but still I find my skinny little Specialized 130mm Toupe the best seat so far. I have about 5 seats sitting in the basement that I need to resell again

      Awesome work out there! Cozumel is going to be rough, but you'll handle it. Actually, you could say that you're lucky to have the same conditions to acclimate to and training. It's a major advantage. Hooray for Tim coming home!

      Looking good Chris! Yep, better to embrace and deal than fight it. Knowing everyone else is out there dealing too can be game changer. Nice ride!

      Excellent ride . The fact is that time of year in Cozumel it will be windy on one side of the island or the other . A local told me the winds pick up in October and blow through January and if it is calm on one side it will be crazy windy on the other . So this embracing the wind will help so much !!

      after being in belize, i am basically terrified of the Cozumel conditions. the wind is no offing joke and the humidity is absurd. fingers crossed we just have an unusually pleasant day for it, right? good work with the supes sticks run.
