Let me kick this one off! 31km this evening, stretching after. Sunday morning I am going to look at an used road bike with Shimano 105 in a town nearby. You will be updated

Enjoy your weekend and your workouts everyone!

Hope the road bike with 105 groupo works out for you, Geralt. Are you watching the Liege-Bastogne-Liege on Sunday? That's always looked like a scenic backdrop for the spring classic. It's a shame this years course won't include the Roche aux Faucons, eh?

I'm only going to get in ~7 hrs of road cycling this week but should pick it up to 10+ next week. Have a good weekend everyone!

Yawn, just woke up. Today will be a record day (hopefully), with 4 students for the Dutch lessons planned in for a total of 9 hours. So no work-outs possible.

@Tres that's insane. I thought everything in Vegas was free, to attract the gamblers. Anyway that's what I have seen in movies. And isn't it always insane hot out there to run? Don't get sunburned

@Like2Hike
It's the old 105 group, and the Giant Peloton on the pic looks like the model from around 1994-1998. The age shouldn't be a problem if the mileage is low and the bike had been well serviced (and that's what the seller claims) but I am still a bit nervous that I might buy a "lemon".

I will try to catch at least the end of Luik-Bastenaken-Luik (as we call it ) but I have also lessons on Sunday afternoon. 7 hours is very nice and 10 even better. Have you checked out Strava to keep track of your rides?

Good job on the run Samwitch!

Geralt, the 105 is an excellent trickle down from dura ace and ultegra. I rode a group last year when my bike was in service and was really impressed . You are correct if in great shape will work very well.
Yesterday rode a metic 67 mile charity ride and felt really good. Slept great last night!
Recover w a hike today and tomorrow it is back on bike mountain training for upcoming rides. Have a great day everyone!

Skiing yesterday. So much snow some of the resorts stayed open one more weekend. Really great conditions.

Geralt - is that your new bike in your avatar? Bull Horns? I have contemplated bull horns for my road bike. I don't think you can race with them here, unless time trial.

Ran a 5K this morning. My first in a very long time. Also had a bib made dedicating it to the people of Boston. It made me feel so good being up early with 5,000 other people and not having to deal with. Hangover was just a complete bonus. Felt great, I'm still on a high from it.

Hi, all. Still here, still working out. Though skipped my legs workout today - felt extremely exhausted and, maybe, somewhat over-worked-out. I think a couple of days off the gym will do me some good.

Best wishes to all. Have good workouts)

Ok here it is guys: a Giant Peloton 8400. It actually turns out to be from around 1999, so it is not as old as expected. Aluminum frame, great condition. The 105 will need some cleaning and fine-tuning, but it will certainly do for one more year. I will have to put the SPD clicking pedals from my mountainbike on it, as it has normal pedals. I am totally exhausted mentally today, 11 hours of lessons yesterday and 8 today and it's almost midnight here, so I will make my first ride tomorrow. Can't wait I put more pics in my album.



Good job on the workouts everyone! Skiing, 5k, a 67mile ride and the gym, nice different ones!

PS. @veryready no idea if those are bull horns, cause I don't know the meaning of that word lol, expect for real bull horns

Geralt congrats on the bike. It is a beauty. Bull horns are the handle bars, as opposed to drops. I like them.

I also have mountain pedals on my road bike end then just one pair of shoes. Not good enough for some people but works for me.

Still working out inside. Even after just 2 days away it was a little hard to motivate.

Warmup, Deadlifts, then 21 - 15 - 9 of the following for time:

Dumbell Thrusters
Pullups

Then rode the bike to round it up to 40 minutes. Really hoping to be able to at least get a run in this week. Snow tomorrow, then looks like some good melting weather is coming.

Thanks for all the posts and good work everyone.

Nicely done! Our weather is looking great for next week. Can't wait to workout outdoors and get some much needed vitamin D. The joys of living in the PNW.

OK Brian MacKenzie must have been in a bad mood when he came up with this one:

Warmup 10 minutes on wind trainer, then for time:

30 Box Jumps
40 Walking Lunges
50 Supine Rows
60 Pushups
70 Situps
80 Air Squats

Then rode wind trainer to make it 45 minutes.

Geralt - I saw your ride on Strava. Very nice work! Glad the new bike is working out.

Beautiful day in the southwest but won't rub that in.
Rode my favorite local climb on my road bike today.
13.1 miles to top of mountain. 3700 feet of elevation gain average about 6 % grade.
About 1:40 to top and less than :30 minutes to get down!
Enjoy your workouts!

Developed tennis elbow by bad form, so I resorted to my ab/legs using the machines. Overdid the abs and now my stomach hurts.

I thought about resting up and just jumping rope, but I might strangle myself.
