LD50 Week 2

This was going to be a big stretch. My target was 70 miles over eight days! Sunday to Sunday.

Here’s how it went down;

Sunday; 18 miles road at 8:30 pace, followed by an hour on the bike

Monday; 8 miles on the road, this was a hard slow eight miles

Tuesday; off

Wednesday; 5 miles on the Treadmill at 9:00 pace

Thursday; 7 miles on the Treadmill at 8:34

Friday; 4 miles on the Treadmill at 8:00

Saturday; 11 miles on the Treadmill at 8:43

Sunday; 18.25 miles on the Tr…ails!!! Ran an out-and-back with Becca and then ran home, well nearly home! Pic say 19, I forgot to turn off GPS in the car!


So 71.25 miles and mission accomplished!

This week is a taper week, Monday off, 8 on Tuesday, 4 on Wednesday and 2 on Thursday!

Friday I am off work, prepping and feet up!

Saturday race day!

Some fun facts; since starting this journey last July 20th I have covered 1568.3 miles in 264:24:25 (HMS) and climbed 146,875’ as well as racing a 12k, a 25k, a 30k, a Marathon, a 50k, another 50k and a 35 miler.

Next week, post recovery, I am really looking forward to getting back on these…

Trade up to a new Pactimo Jersey!

I can tell you until I am blue in the face how great Pactimo jerseys are, but at the end of the day, the best testimony comes 30-50 miles into a hard ride when you’re happy with how comfortable it still feels.

So, as a way to get you into their clothing…they are offering 50% off a new Pactimo jersey!

All you have to do is send in one of your old jerseys. Any cycling jersey, any brand; old, new, worn they will take it. More info is available here

It’s actually for a good cause too. All gently used jerseys will be donated to The Bike Depot in Denver  is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit community bike shop that supports Denver communities with a wide range of bicycling programs, services and products. They strive to foster the growth of bicyclists and bicycle communities through programs, education and access. One of their main initiatives that we will be partnering with is the Bike Rodeo. See what they did last year
