Hopped aboard the magic bus for the first time since IMFL '09 and rode the trainer for an hour. That's a period of 6-weeks and 5 days! That's a long time. The longest I've gone in...I don't know when. Why did I pick today? Not sure. Maybe it was because I was drinking coffee, browsed the movies on hulu and found Prefontaine. I got inspired. I also realized I needed to start building back my base.
I rode for an hour and my HR didn't get above 130. I watched the last hour of the movie on my trainer....I know. I eventually looked down at my HR monitor and I was at 106 so I stepped it up a little. Definitely wanted to stay aerobic but that was a little too aerobic. It felt good to go for my stationary ride.
I also signed up for Memphis in May Olympic tri. It's in May. I know. This year's MiM is a qualifier for the USAT Age Group Nationals held at the end of September in Tuscaloosa. My goal is to qualify for that.
I love a goal!
