Wed - Saturday: consistency!

OK - FINALLY on a workout roll.  as a big believer in "momentum" - positive OR negative, this works.

Wed - Went to San Jose on the 6:30 am and the 10:00 pm return.  Rest day

Thursday 12 July 2012 - 38.6 mile bike through the ranch. Rode with Mike Capozza and it was harder than I would have planned on doing.  From the start I felt strained. we rode north at about 19 mph and my heart rate quickly went to 150.  It seemed hard all day, except when I had to wati 15 min due to the road work in Elfin Forrest. HR 143 average, 167 peak.

Friday 13 July 2012 - So tired from yesterday.  I did the elliptical machine for 1 hour, 110 average HR, recovery work

Saturday 14 July 2012 - rode 38 miles with Kevin Winters.  Mostly very easy. Finally learned through the garmin that the hill on Portofino is a steep 16.5% grade in the steep part.  HR 121 Avg, 162 peak.
