Sunburn and Sore Legs

Sunday, May 08, 2011  at 6:41 PM
Today might just have been the most beautiful day in Michigan's history!  It was a high of 70 with a slight breeze.  It was a day for being outside and spending time enjoying the outdoors.  And that's exactly what I did.

This morning, I woke up to a text message from my good friend, Josh Woods, that said, "Hey man, what time you want to ride?"  I sent him one back and soon had put on the spandex,  packed a few things for the ride and was out on the road to meet up with him.  My training plan called for a 40 mile long ride this week, but we just wanted to do a long ride.  Since we were going for a pretty good distance, we weren't too concerned with our average speed.  We just wanted to finish strong and build up our endurance.  I started with arm warmers but soon took them off because it started to warm up rather quickly.  It was AWESOME!  We had so much fun exploring new territory and cranking by the miles.  After a quick stop at a gas station to refill our water bottles, we headed for home.  We ended up riding 54 miles which is my longest ride ever!  Although we weren't trying to do anything crazy, we ended up averaging 17.2 mph which I think is respectable.

The classic self-portrait...

It looks like I got a bit of sun!  Next time some sunscreen?
When I got home, Jennifer was walking up the driveway with her bike and gear ready to go on her ride. So, I figured that I would keep her company.  We ended up doing 19, and by the end of the ride, I was pretty tired!  That means I road 73 miles today!  What a way to use this beautiful weather.  I would call today an awesome training day.

Man, I married such a hot wife!  And she bikes too!!!
This past week has been great too, and I won't bore you with too many details, but it included several trips to the pool, some decent mileage on the bike, and a run or too as well.  I hope you all had a blessed weekend full of great weather and good training.  Thanks for reading.

I got a similar sunburn on my ride last Friday; it's on my shoulders though from going sleeveless.

Totally agree about the weather today. If only every day could be just like it.

Welcome to the triathlete tan line club. :)

Before you buy some sunscreen, do some Googling about sunscreen and staining clothes. I've ruined a few good shirts with sunscreen stains. I'm hoping to find some without whatever chemicalcauses the staining.

PS: I think all the hot wives have the name Jennifer ;)

Happy that you got the same gorgeous weather we did! Great day on the bike for you too.

Great distance man! We rode like 40 miles as our "long" ride for steelhead haha. You should have NO problem on the bike with a ride like that under your belt!

Fave

high five on the new distance - that's always fun! be proud of yourself. and you get extra brownie points for going back out with your wife. I vote you #2 best husband of the year! (obviously IronGreg is #1).

Dude-- protect those legs! Yikes. Apparently the more hardcore your workout the more excited you are about it, so congrats! :) Glad you're liking the MI weather!

Colleen

Gotta love when the weather turns in the midwest... we all end up doing super long workouts to make up for the crappy weather we've all endured too long. Congrats on a great ride! That sunburn looks sore... yikes!

Julie

Ouch! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'll be following your progress since our races are so close!

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and
gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the
shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had
to tell someone!
