Solvang Century swag. My first 100 mile ride. I am excited and nervous!!!! Pictures and commentary tomorrow along the ride. Temps should be near 80 degrees.
I almost skipped big gear Wednesday (double spin class with reillysmith ) because I could barely keep my eyes open after 9 straight hours of work in the office. So glad I sucked it up and went anyway! I feel so much better. Alarm is set for 4:45AM. Early morning miles await!
8 mi run complete for Picky Club #teamgreen! I really did not want to run after my ride this morning but I committed to running with Rae so out the door I went. After two years of running together, Rae is training for her first half marathon in May. So excited for her! This was her longest run to date. 8 mi around the Marina + .6 cool down for total 8.6.
Another beautiful ride to Palos Verdes. It started out foggy but the clouds lifted. 40 miles total. Later this afternoon - easy 8 mi run.
Scenes from early morning 12 miler to Manhattan Beach and back. 1) Tons of surfers at El Porto. They looks like ants in the water. 2) Early morning surf competition. Surfers are early morning people! 3) Sweaty selfie. 1 mile cool down for 13 mi total. Such a beautiful morning. No complaints!
Big Gear Wednesday with reillysmith One class down, one to go. Doing the work!
This felt good. I had an unexpected rest day yesterday but am feeling a lot better today. Some days you need to just listen to your body.
16 mile LSR along the beach complete! It felt great. Beautiful morning!
These Thursday morning shake out runs are getting a little bit easier. My quads and calves are still adjusting to the Wednesday night work. Ouch.
Tonight - another 5 miles at an easy pace. 10 miles for the day
I have been talking about this class for weeks but honestly it is the best spin class I have ever taken, bar none. Two classes, back to back, the second class spent going straight “up hill” using “big gear”. I feel the class effects on my long ride up the canyon on the weekend. It works! After over four years of working with @reillysmith, he has really taken it to the next level with this class. The best part? It is buy one class, get the second class free. If you are reading this and want to try it out, be my guest for the first class and get the whole thing free. Let’s do it! Change your body, what are you waiting for???
Workouts today: easy 3.25 in the AM, big gear double spin PM
