Without a race until the Colonial Beach Olympic Triathlon on July 13th and now recovered from Eagleman, it is back to the training grind and preparing for ChesapeakeMan in September. As promised I had a stacked cycling weekend with a 70 mile club ride on Saturday followed by the first solo century of the year on Sunday.
The century was great. After the first few miles of the legs screaming "I thought we were done with all this after yesterday!" they settled in and propelled me round the country roads of Maryland. The route I chose was cool as well, I took in a number of roads and tiny coastal villages that I hadn't been to in a while and wished that I had taken the camera to show how nice the views are of the Chesapeake Bay. Next time.....
So with a good weekend behind me it is into the work week and trying to make sure the key workouts get done.....tonight is the main brick of the week, a strong club ride and a fast 10km straight after! That's something to look forward to :-)
- Ride 4 of the #festive500 with crisp and windy conditions....but look at that sky! Both indoor and outdoor riding has its place but you can't get the same views indoors. . . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #iridespecialized #specializedallez #cycling #gopro #swimbikerun #triathlon
- Time to start going long. Getting 15miles in close to home and no need to stop for traffic or lights! Races are approaching..... . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #swimbikerun #triathlon #ironmantri #xterratriathlon #ultramantri #running #ironmanmaryland #wahooligan
