Thursday: Quick sandy bike ride

It was cloudy in the morning, but warm and calm.  We went swimming at high tide, by which I mean we basically floated around in inflatable donuts.

Later in the day, I was feeling antsy, so I decided to go for a short bike ride.  I just grabbed my old rusty mountain bike and took off to explore the dirt roads on the island and in the area.

It wasn’t very hard, and I didn’t go for very long, only about 50 minutes or so.  But I felt a lot more relaxed afterwards, and felt less guilty about having a beer or two before dinner.

Friday: 30′ Recovery Session

I got home on the red eye and, to quote the Beatles, “Man, I had a dreadful flight”.  I slept about an hour after takeoff, but after that I just couldn’t get comfortable enough to sleep.

I drove home after landing, and slept for 90 minutes before I had to get on a conference call.  I continued from meeting to meeting for the rest of the day, until around 4pm.

I knew my wife would be getting home in a little while, so instead of doing a set session, I decided to “Just Row” at 175W until she got home.  That turned out to be 33 minutes.  Good enough to work out the kinks.

Thursday: San Diego. Recovery Session

I’m here in San Diego, and one of the things I like about it is that there is nearly constant military air traffic in the area.  I had lunch outside and we had trouble carrying on a conversation because F/A-18s were tearing up the sky above us.  It’s a beautiful plane.

Back to training.

  • 20 minutes elliptical (level 15, rolling hills)
  • 20 minutes treadmill (15% grade, 3 mph)

I wanted something easy, and that’s what I got.
