Our simple tip to the newcomers for making this linkup work for you: the more you interact with others, the more they will interact with you. We hope you'll find the connections, support and motivation you've been searching for right here!
I don't really have anything worthy of a post this week. When looking at time, riding the Century distance last weekend was along the lines of an ultra event. Although not so hard on the body (other than slight bruising in the sit bone area, I had no evidence) my heart rate was in its aerobic zone all.day.long. I respected that and gave this aging body some extra days off.
|Welcome, October. I found this cute ghost on Saturday's ride.|
I posted my Dam Century Recap earlier this week and have linked it below. It would mean the world to me if you'd check that out, if you haven't already.
And that's a wrap!
I know the Fall racing season is in full swing and I'm looking forward to reading what you've been up to!
And that's a wrap!
What a ride! The Dam is beautiful and you certainly get extra bad-assery points for the storm. What an epic thing to do!ReplyDelete
I really enjoyed going over the bridge at the dam!Delete
I can't wait to read your century recap - heading over there right now!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the linkup!
You should definitely consider riding a century!Delete
I had no idea that you were having an elevated HR! FOA.ReplyDelete
No. Sorry, I confused you. It just worked the day of the ride (and it took all DAM day) in an aerobic capacity.Delete
Glad you were able to rest and recover this week!ReplyDelete
Thanks. I think it was the best call for this aging body!Delete
Your recap was great and it looks like you had the best time!ReplyDelete
We were determined to ride easy and have fun. Mission accomplished!Delete
Congratulations on your century ride! What a huge accomplishment. Just popped over to your recap--very eventful! The view of the Dam was gorgeous. You've definitely earned the right to take time for recover now!ReplyDelete
Ha! It was pretty eventful. Just when we thought we were home free...Delete
Again, the century ride with Teresa looks so fun (despite the hard work involved). I'd be up for a century ride...someday. Geesh, I have about 1,000,000 miles of training awaiting me (and a very sore tush) if that ever becomes a reality...(don't hold your breath) ;-)ReplyDelete
With the right gear, the tush will hold up just fine! LOLDelete
Congrats on your century ride! I'm off to read the recap.ReplyDelete
Thank you very much!Delete
I loved your recap. Our roadkill count was only 4 today, ;-)ReplyDelete
I need to recovery quickly for the Army Ten Miler next weekend! I'm looking forward to a rest day tomorrow for sure!
Only four? Wow! We lost count. I hope you enjoyed your ride!Delete
Thanks for hosting the link-up and good tips. I will be sure to come back around in a few days!ReplyDelete
I appreciate you linking with us!Delete
The century ride still amazes me. Way to go! You deserve some r & r!ReplyDelete
Thanks. I'm stilling enjoying extra R & R!Delete
I'm glad you spent the week resting up. I loved your Century report!ReplyDelete
Just resting and contemplating my next adventure...Delete
It really did take me all week to completely recover from our epic adventure....but it was worth every sore muscle and bruised booty bone! :)ReplyDelete
Definitely worth it! I'm ready to roll again.Delete
I'm still in a training cycle for November, but with the way September flew by, November will be here before I know it. I've got 5 miles on tap next weekend.ReplyDelete
Your training has been going well for Vegas! It will be here soon.Delete
Happy October! Great that you took extra days off.ReplyDelete
I hope the cooler temps will follow soon.Delete
Just read your recap - Nice work lady! I think you earned your rest and recovery!ReplyDelete
Thanks! It was a really fun event.Delete
You totally deserve some days off after the Century Ride! Love the friendly ghost. We were busy this weekend decorating for Halloween!ReplyDelete
I love seeing the Fall and Halloween decorations around the neighborhood. Some of them are so elaborate.Delete
Amazing that you recovered so quickly!!!ReplyDelete
I felt OK but probably wouldn't have wanted to sit on my bike for a couple of days afterwards...Delete
The Halloween decorations started going up in my neighborhood yesterday so I'm excited. I'm glad you had a good week even if you mostly recovered- it sounds like you needed it after the long ride anyway!ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to a long ride this weekend just so I can check our the Fall and Halloween decorations!Delete
Recovery is the smartest thing you could do this week! You'll be able to absorb all that hard work and repair those muscles and come back even stronger. Most of the times I've gotten injured have been when I jump back into training too soon after a hard workout.ReplyDelete
I think not jumping back in quickly is one of the hardest things to do. It takes a world of restraint for me.Delete
After your ride, you more than earned your week of rest. I'm glad that you enjoyed it!ReplyDelete
I'm so glad we decided to do the full century distance. It was fun!Delete
So glad that you are recovering after the epic century ride!ReplyDelete
I laughed a little at the inflatable ghost that you saw on Saturday's ride. I think I would be so scared if I ran or rode by that at night lol
I can't wait to see even more decorations on my long ride this weekend!Delete
I will definitely check out your recap - I'm a little behind on my blog reading. Congrats on the 100 miles and thanks for hosting us!ReplyDelete
I admit to being behind on blog reading too! Tricia and I are very grateful for everyone who continues to link here each week!Delete
I haven't read the recap yet, I'm heading over to do that now :)ReplyDelete
I appreciate that!Delete
just read your century recap-oh my word!!!congrats on finishing the dam thing in one piece and to finish SMILING!!!!ReplyDelete
you are one bad a$$ for sure!!!!
It was DAM fun. Really, it was not the monster we had perceived it would be. Having someone to ride with certainly made it a much more enjoyable experience.Delete
So glad to hear you're taking a bit of extra time off! I understand what it's like to have your heart rate working at a higher rate than normal. I hope you're feeling better! And Congratulations on your Century Ride! heading over to your recap right now!ReplyDelete
It wasn't that my HR was too high, it just stayed there all day because it took all day to complete the ride. It was almost double what a marathon time would be for me. So, I thought rest was in order.Delete
Happy October! Nice Halloween decor during your ride. It's amazing how some people go all out for Halloween, especially in some near neighborhoods near us. So fun to see!ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see more decorations when I ride again this weekend. Some people really take it over the top!Delete
The worst thing about the DAM was that it is located in town so there was a lot of traffic with us when we crossed it both times. I have to say, most cars were respectful.ReplyDelete
