After a couple of recovery/transition weeks after the double of the Duathlon Nationals and Eagleman, it was back to the Ironman countdown as ChesapeakeMan is now only 14 weeks away. The first build period is really about getting some consistency back and working on some longer base miles.
Saturday Jun 23rd - Evening run after work. 5.78m
Sunday Jun 24th - Steady ride to North Beach and back. 73.0m
Monday Jun 25th - Outdoor swim at Truxton Park :-) Love this time of year. Also the evening Parvilla ride and short 30min post-ride run.
Tuesday Jun 26th - Another lunch time swim at the Park. Then back to the Tues Night D-Ville ride, first time in a month or so....jeez! Short brick run on toasted legs.
Wednesday June 27th - Day off....Chiropractor session.
Thursday June 28th - Didn't have time for a longer swim so a short 30min session at lunch and a 40min run before an evening work meeting......oh yeah the heat is here!
Friday June 29th - Early morning run. First long "ish" run since Eagleman so just went out easy for 13.0m. Gets tough to run long in the summer temps without going early. Feel much better in recent days since the Chiropractor visits.
Weekly Total - 13hrs 14mins
Total Mileage - 175 miles
- End of year summary for 2020. It ended up being my biggest year in a long time (since I was cycling to work in the UK) and certainly helped by not having to commute into D.C for 9 months. Now the trick will be trying to replicate in coming years as (or if) the commute returns. I definitely respond well to higher volume and that will be important as I look to some future goals. . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #strava #triathlon #swimbikerun #cycling #ultramantri #ironmantri
- Ride 2 of the #festive500 for 2020....below freezing for a couple of hours today but as the saying goes "there is no such thing as bad weather with the right clothing". . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #alwaysevolve #gorewear #cycling #cyclinglife #iridespecialized #specializedallez #ridemd
- Can we start planning on the race schedule for 2021? Progress is being made in the search for vaccines....lets hope so eh? Better start training just in case! . . . . #IFB #parvillacycles #unpavedpa #cyclinglife #vandessel #gravelride #cycling #ciclismo #cyclingphotos
- 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
