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.
