Sunday: No riding. Did some calf exercises in the evening.
Saturday: Once again the plan was to try Percy's ride. Once again I only woke up at 1pm. So I did my own little ride around town. I was aiming for a mostly tempo pace, with a little bit of rest at the beaches and some spots here and there along the way. I call it fartlek tempo. Most people would probably call it half-assed.
Friday: More rain. Didn't feel like subjecting myself to the rollers. So I did nothing.
Thursday: rainy day. Looking at my base 3 schedule, I can now do some harder efforts. Tonight I did some cruise intervals. 3x6minutes. I was going to do 4 minute rests, but after the first interval, I decided on just 3 minute rests. Then I forgot and did a 4 minute rest between intervals 2&3. oh well. I also fell off the rollers between those two, launching into a box of spare christmas light bulbs. Hopefully they're still in one piece.

Wednesday: For some reason despite wearing my assos skinsuit under my jersey yesterday, my ass really hurt. So I took the day off. Rode around the block a few times late in the day. Walked at night.
Tuesday: Temps in the 50s means a long day in the office. Or at least what I had planned to be a long day in the office. I decided to head out east and ride past the buffalo farm, opting to extend my ride a little by going to Iron Pier Beach Park. I felt really good on the way out. The riding was fast and easy. Then I turned back around. Oh headwind. What a slog heading back along Sound ave. Then I bonked. I crawled my way back to mount sinai, but had to stop at a bagel store. Earlier in the ride, I also had some garmin trouble. I recently switched to 25's on the road bike, so I figured I would let garmin auto correct the size, but somehow it came up with a size half as large as I had for the 23's. My power numbers also seemed really low on the way back into the wind. I don't know if that was related to the imminent bonk, or if I need to recalibrate my ptap as well. Technology....pffft.
Monday: Rest day. Needless to say, after last week I rested.
