Totals for Sept 2010

September's totals:
Bike: 11h 12m - 171.28 Mi
Run: 10h 17m - 66.72 Mi
Swim: 1h 00m - 2000 M
Strength: 5h 15m
Golf: 5h 30m
Motocross: 2h 00m


Man....I was a slacker this month. Although, more mtb time = less bike mileage. I did finish with 2 long runs of 15miles and 18 miles though. I also already have a 19 mile run in this month. I gotta be happy about that.

Nice job on the Golf.
I swear, with all my training... anything that is not training looks like a ton of fun.
And I pass a lot of golf courses.

I had solid numbers this month...
But I am trying to forget about the pain, so I 'm not going to look them up.

What are your 2011 plans, or goals?

I want to do 2 HIM's in 2011 and start training for a 2012 IM.

Which ones?
Are we going to see you in Racine for the 70.3?
I think waiting till 2012 is a much better plan to make it to a full IM.
Couch to IM in a year, is just stupid...

Personally, I can't wait till spring.
I have decided, that I am going to do a sprint.
Can you imagine, running a full race and being done in an hour? How kewl would that be!

I'm on the fence between Matoon/Racine right now. Steelhead will be the other one.

I decided this year to back off the accellerated plan to IM. I'm having just as much fun doning sprints and Oly's. The best part is my fitness is improving exponentially and I'm comfortable and even able to "race" my events, not "just finish" I could go straight to IM from here with some training but my fear is the finish will be miserable. I want to be comfortable so I enjoy it more, and want to do it again. That's just my choice, I know others are ok with going straight to IM's. I just notice that sometimes those people don't do them ever again.

I don't think anything over an Olympic distance could be considered fun.
A HIM is past the range of fitness and it dictated by conservation and planning.

I feel the pain level of the full IM.
Hopefully I can enjoy more then just the end.

all I can tell you is some things can't be rushed. Last year, if I did a 3 hour or beyond ride/run/whatever, I literally couldn't function the rest of the day. I struggled to stay awake, and move. This year, I can go about my day like normal. Last year, if I rode for 3+ hours I was even worthless for the next day. This year I can ride 3+ hours on saturday and run 3+ hours on Sunday. The body does adapt. It takes time. It'll all add up to a more comfortable HIM/IM. I think you can force your body to do it. It just won't respond well after or later in the race without a strong base. I don't think that base comes in a year. More like 2-3.

I agree with this for sure. I don't really think the Ironmans are races, but more like planned finishing times. For me to consider something a race, I need to be able to go balls to the wall for the entire time at 180 HR. I can do that in the Olympic distance but not the HIM. Having said that, my goal for next year Racine HIM is 4:45.

I consider that a sprint.

I see your point but it is still about who gets to the finish first. Reguardless, time put in makes it more comfortable. It took me 2 years but I finally figured out my cramping issues. That alone made things a whole lot better beyond the 3 hour mark!

Yeah for sure. That is why I'm concentrating on running over the winter. Even at 10 minute miles I should be able to get under 5 hours, but with a TT bike and more training I should be able to hit 4:45 with any luck and no mistakes.

I'm just hoping to be under 5:30 I'll re-assess after computrainer classes and masters swim this winter though.

Swim won't matter that much, but if you're running keeps up you should be fine.

Nice work, Brian.

I knocked out 26 miles in 3 days with a 40lb pack, 6,000ft total of elevation gain. Started at 8500 and topped out at 12,500.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Wait wait wait, you have golf on here? Then I am including dropping a deuce, baking cookies, and watching Dancing with the Stars in my totals. Pretty sure my HR is higher doing all that stuff than in fuggin' golf. And what's with this MX? You have a bike?

My logs include all activities. They are seperate so you can take what you want from them.

MX was the quad I rented in Vegas to play in the dunes!!

I didn't crash the quad!! And I agree, it was a great work out. I'm thinking about it. It may come down to getting a MX bike or wheels for the P4 though. Don't want to spend $$$ on both.

Backpacking trip.

You try carrying a pack at that altitude uphill continuously. Even you two supermen would have a hard time. The air is a wee bit thin. But yeah, it was a blast and the views were spectacular. I'll post pics eventually.

I stopped keeping track of everything as I was burntout. I'm just out to have fun for the remainder of the riding season, much less pressure this way and i'm definately feeling better. Lately when I grab the bike im out for fun- no computer, HR monitor, ect.

till next year, then I will start obessively tracking shit as if it will matter some day.

Totals for Sept 2010

Totally agree! I'm done racing for the season and just having fun. I know my bike fitness has suffered. But my mtb skills are improving and I'm enjoying myself. I'll pick it up and start building a base again in November.
