Ride Detail
Tue, Feb 10, 2009 - 16.40 mi [Cycling] Details
16.40 mi in 01:09:57 hours at 14.07 mi/h on Specialized Sequoia Elite. [Cycling] It was a good ride. Mostly stayed in Zone 3 and low zone 4. It got cold after sunset, but it was fun overall. Not sure how ready I will be for the Tour de Palm Springs, but I'm not too concerned since it's my first time out there.

For me Palm Springs is like a tune-up ride. It's a chance to assess where I'm at and it gives me a month to work on getting ready for Solvang. Which in turn gets me ready for Tour of the Tucson Mountains.

At this point, I'm carefully monitoring the weather in Palm Springs this Saturday. :(

20.10 mi in 01:18:52 hours at 15.29 mi/h on Specialized Sequoia Elite. [Cycling]
I had a good ride on the Strand today. I lucked out, there really wasn't that much wind, which is a rare occurrence. I did my repeats and I was pleasantly surprised with my mph.
Warm up 15 minutes Zone 1 and 2
5 Reps 8 min. Zone 4/5a & b (160bmp - 175bpm)
Recoveries 3 to 4 minutes each. Tried to get my HR down to about 150bpm before I started the next acceleration.

There was a short cool down, I probably could have done some more reps but the sun was setting and I had a long commute home.

below zone: 28:24
in zone: 49:27
above zone: 1 min.

14.00 mi in 01:00:00 hours at 14.00 mi/h on Spin Cycle LA Fitness. [Cycling] This was the second ride of 08. Finally back in a grove...

Hill reps...DONE!
Warm up: 15
Then wiith resistance 30/30 and 90 second recovery (12 reps)
10 min cool down.

A good workout, the first 4 were easy, 5-8 were hard, after that, it was hard to keep up the RPMs and the HR was going up into the mid 180s Zone 5C.
