Well Palos is Out

Sonofabitch! Brought all my stuff with me to head out to Palos today (for the first time this year, stupid rain) and of course.......RAIN! Dammit. Guess I'm heading out to Waterfall Glen instead after work if anyone wants to do a few laps.

It's july, it rains in july every year. Not sure why this is a surprise to you. Not sure why you are complaining about rain in july. It's july for christ sake, it rains in july. I remember when i was down south last year and rode my bike in the middle of july in a rain storm. it rained like every day. Now that was rain. Not any of this dinky sun shower crap you all call rain here. It's july people. It rains in july.


"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Suckfest. With as dry as it's been and the quick storm this morning (down here at least) hopefully it's good to go tomorrow.

Damn, that place hardly ever closes. I would bet it will be open tomorrow for sure. Mostly sand and rock there...

That sucks!!!

You guys are welcome to join the road ride 7:30am Sunday at commissioners park in Naperville. I'll be leading the advanced group but feel free to come out and join whatever group you'd like. I think we may cut back the mileage a bit if it's really hot and humid.

I was out once in late winter. Didn't know there was a new trail then though. It may not have been there at the time.

I've been at Palos a few times recently.
I rode the canal trail (xx) before monsoon season, to me it's not the best part of Palos but its good to have more trails.
I might be up for a ride in the morning somewhere

Ken are you still thinking about doing that race Sunday?
I stopped by your shop around 11:15 on Thursday but it was dark in there.

Still thinking about it. Not sure yet. I'll post up if I do it. Not sure what the family is doing yet, and if I'll be recovered enough from last weekend to survive.

Weather permitting I'll be there about 10:30. Trails are not marked as red at the moment, we'll see in the Morning.

Come out to my LTF ride in the morning. Have her do the beginner group. Ride with her or do the advanced yourself.

I don't think I'm going to fair well in the advanced tomorrow. I really struggled on the bike in Racine with my stomach. I wasn't putting out shit for power during the race but it took a LOT out me. I got on the trainer Thursday and couldn't do crap. We'll see what I can do tomorrow. My run has come back quickly though. Weird!!

I'll probably hang around my house, I have a ton of stuff to do, plus she is not ready for a group ride yet I don't think. Once she is more acclimated to riding on the road and especially with others, I will take her on some group rides.

I'm sure I won't be too powerful on the bike yet either. I have been feeling pretty run down between the race last weekend and hundred degree temperatures at work. I'll need another week at least to feel somewhat decent.

Later on this month or whenever, but definitely this year, I will be doing another half Ironman on my own for training. I'll swim downtown, then bike up north 60 miles and back, and then run 13. I gotta figure out what my problem is and why I can't duplicate training stats in that race.

I'd like to figure this out as well. I spent some time with a guy that qualified for The Vegas 70.3 world championships. He was nice enough to spend time and go over my training logs, my goals, and expectations of myself. I asked him to be completely honest even if he thought it would offend me. Pretty eye opening! I figured out a handful of mistakes I made. Some training mistakes, and a whole lot of mental mistakes.

I now have a plan for the rest of the year that includes a lot more fun and a lot less beating myself up mentally.

Ken, I'm not 100% I'm going to do another HIM this year, but it's possible I'll do the Cedar Point Rev3 in September. If you decide to do that one LMK.

I ended up doing a short Lakefront ride to Thorndale then Navy Pier and back.
Not as crowded as I thought it would be.
