Hi.

Welcome to my streak.  One hundred days of straight Peloton.

Day Twenty-four: Christine's 45 min HRZ Endurance Ride 8.30.17

Day Twenty-four: Christine's 45 min HRZ Endurance Ride 8.30.17

I had a very rough day.  I was supposed to wake up early and ride, but I didn't.  Even though I should have been feeling fine since yesterday I did an endurance ride, I found out some devastating news about a former student of mine.  

Stress and grief can take a toll on the body as much as a hard threshold workout can.  Even as I climbed the stairs to my morning train, I could tell that my legs were tired.  Paying attention to these signals is critical for avoiding injury and burn-out... a lesson from my ironman training days.

I gave myself the extra sleep this morning and did another endurance ride tonight.  I did a live ride with Christine and she was great, the music was stuff I'd never heard, but was good.  I think that she probably slips into too high of heart rate zones during her endurance classes, but it was good to see a room full of people and her energy encouraging us all to treat ourselves right.  

I'm feeling a bit better.  Now to eat a salad and make sure that I sleep a full eight hours.
