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 :-)
- Searching out some local gravel for a recovery hour this evening......Bowie Racetrack was perfect! Dead flat, no-one else around, zero cars. 128 furlongs of easy riding. . . . #parvillacycles #gravelride #cycling #ciclismo #bowiemd #IFB
- With group rides being off the table for the foreseeable future (my own personal choice) it's been fun to spend some more time on the #specializedshiv Time to think of an epic ride to do. . . . . #iridespecialized #specializedfans #IFB #parvillacycles #timetrial #swimbikerun #ironmantri #cyclinglife #triathlon
