been ignoring the legs & have been out doing some adventuring, a 30 mile day one, then a couple of days with back to back 100+ miles. Mandatory rest day tomorrow.

32 miles, 1,880’ and 2 top 10s overall (one being a 3rd place podium). 80 something degrees and a bit humid - but not east coast humid.

84 on the climbs - ooof! Hope there was a breeze.

I'm mostly used to it, so not a huge deal...at/near triple digits are where I start to suffer. I can still handle those temps, I just have to adjust my power output down. Some of my best/more dominant race results have come on triple-digit race days. It's not like I don't feel it, it's just that I suffer a little bit less than most others.

Most of the climbing, on that route, is done on an 18 mile long segment, so the average speed is pretty fast on that climb(13+mph.) The ride I did yesterday was much worse...3 climbs, all an hour plus, all in the lower gears. The climb out of the desert was particularly brutal...9 miles long, 3200' gained, and the Garmin never registered a temp below 100 on the whole climb.

Well done on the results...cool to see you grabbing some Strava cred against the youngins.

25.8 miles. Should have left earlier in the day as it didn't rain farther north of me. Could have gotten in another 10 miles or so, still working back up the distances. Only ride #7 of the year, been taking 3 days off or so between rides, body is almost conditioned to it. Almost hit a possum, it walked slowly onto the road to eat something, missed it by a foot or so.

After a 8 day rest period, work induced I finally got some miles today. Brutal 101F temps and a dry hot wind made it a mandatory indoor ride after 6 hours of work. 41 miles and 1700 ft on Rouvy. Legs very much appreciated the layoff for the 8 days.

“work induced” has to be the worst. I would ride the trainer too with those kind of temps. Nice climbing 👍

Yea I avg 14 to 18 hrs a day for the last 14 days... today was only 6 because I said screw it, I need to decompress a bit. My plan this week, even if 18 hr day, is to still get in at least 10 to 15 miles, and keep the incline 5% or less. We are moving a process flow program over to a new server and there is so many manual segments that run outside the main program that we did not know about because they laid a bunch of people off, and this was part of their world. There are only 2 people left from that group and neither of them really used it and no one has any documentation on anything so we are having to reverse engineer. We discovered the 18 manual segments about a month ago and we have to be off the old server by the end of June. We are trying to run in tandem this week trying to find if we have plugged all the holes.

What a perfect management, shoot them selves in the foot nightmare, you inherited. I have seen this happen several times and it falls on poor individuals like yourself have to clean up their mess. I would just love to see the developers and server managers give them the middle finger and walk away. Sorry it happened to you. I can’t tell you how much I despise that type of upper management. Can you tell that I’ve been victimized but upper management incompetence as well? Gawd how I hate them.

The Fortune 100 company I worked for actually blackmailed managers to be strike breakers (scabs) or be terminated. I severely injured my back and was unable to lift more than 30 lbs but was forced to be a scab. Unbelievable

So I finally managed to get 20 miles in. Unfortunately it is only my 4th ride of the year. I need to get some consistency going and get more saddle time than I have been. Between work and working on cars and the house i don't have as much time as I would like.

Yea they cut our development team, but increased the project load. It seems to be all the rage this year.

17 km, 55 minutes, third and longest ride in three days.
Considering I thought a running knee injuring a week and a half ago would prevent cycling for weeks if not longer, I'm in a very good mood.
Won't be running for a while, but I can live with that.

A wee bit of climbing

Most of the climbs were punchy climbs ranging from 7-14%. No long grades - but would sure enjoy one.

29 miles and 4300' of climbing today. I took a day off the bike yesterday, but spent it riding one of my dirtbikes and cutting windfall timber out of the trails...so not the ideal rest day.

Today's loop was a variation of my local climbing loop I managed to grab a PR on the 6.25ish mile climb at 7.1%. I was already 2nd OA on it...and I'm still 2nd, the KOM is actually a legitimate climber, so that one's probably out of reach. However, the top 2 miles of the climb is its own segment...and is only a 5.5% grade, so more manageable for this beefcake...I grabbed the KOM on that segment, by a pretty handy margin.

I started out pretty slow on the longer segment, at one point had a 50 second deficit to my previous PR, but reversed it to demolish it by 2 minutes. I averaged 320 watts for about 45 minutes on the longer segment, this leaves me some room for improvement on this climb.

no greenways were hurt in the miles making. Tubeless tires of 30 were used & for purposes kept unknown.

looks more impressive than actuality. I have only ridden those roads twice, but will take the meager win. Now if I can get a KOM for age group or overall, then it will be something.

BUT, I did hit the climbs hard - no PRs on those - and my Garmin suggested taking a whopping 50 hours off. No way, Jose.
