Seven days into a 57 day program and I am off schedule, not by much but by some; a classic example of life getting in the way. The cycle started with a rest day, that I accomplished without any trouble, it was followed by a bike/run on alternative days for the rest of the week, I was pushed off schedule by my bike being the shop, this was overcome by shuffling days around; no problem.
Saturday I was due to put in 11 miles but ran out of time and only managed 7.5. This gave me a total run mileage of 21.09 against a target of 25 and a total bike mileage of 65.43 against a target of 50, a 2:1 bike/run ratio so I was happy with the ratio. I have been keeping up the CPE program and the exercises are becoming easier and my form is improving.
My century ride from Sunday was deferred by two weeks.
This week I am overseas, six days away, two of which are spent on a plane, all for a job interview! The photo is from the plane flying over the San Gabriel's range and looking out over the Mojave Desert from about 32,000'.
The upside is I get to see my family for the first time in ten months. Monday was scheduled as rest and I intended to switch that with Tuesday, that didn’t work so I am off by a day and I didn’t pack my bike, don’t laugh it did cross my mind, so I’ll have to come up with some alternative form of cross training. So my feet are warm but they're not quite as hot as I had hoped. The good news is that there I have no niggles from my ITB, although it was only kicking in at around 10 miles at a decent pace, I have a 10 scheduled for Saturday so we’ll see what happens then.
I am traveling around a bit during my trip; four nights, three different stops so I will be able to run in some pretty interesting places and hopefully get some good photos.
