Training Friday, 4/11/08

Got home from work and it stopped raining, so jumped on the bike for a pre-dinner loop down to Penfield and back. Started out with a bit of a tough time into the wind as I headed south, but sure made up for it on the way back (was a piece of cake -- added at least 2 mph to my average pace!!!). In the middle was a bit of a nasty hill -- 6 degrees of grade elevation, minimal berm to ride on, and lots of traffic both directions. But, got through that area and everything was downhill and downwind from there! Last two miles the temperature dropped like a rock and the wind picked up -- not sure if a front rolled in, I got closer to the lake, or a combination, but it was definitely time to get home. Total distance, 19.5 miles; estimated calories burned: 1157.

  • Breakfast -- large decaf coffee
  • Lunch -- hotdog, potatoes, beans (work special)
  • Dinner -- spaghetti and meatsauce
