Nutley – Great Swamp 62.9 Miles

Ate Standard Breakfast plus a scoop of cytomax and water. Very tired about 10 miles in then ate bagel and used  3 scoops of cytomax powder for rest of ride and was much better. Body still tires today. Had strong tale wind coming in from Montvale/Fairfield an all the way home. Bridge was out at River Rd and Eagle Rock Ave causing me to add 7 extra miles.

Sloatsburg – Cornwall 73.5 Miles

Decided to do ride alone.

Got to start early and very dark like it was going to rain so waited 15 minutes. First half of ride was dark, very windy and extremely cold for shorts and sheer arm warmers. I was freezing. 2nd half warmed up just a little. Ate good day before and experimented with just Cytomax as fuel and no other food. Went through just over 1 bottle of cytomax mix and had 2.5 scoops of cytomax powder and did not bonk but will need to mix in more calories next time. Had to stop to pee 7 times so body was doing some strange things.

Forgot to turn Garmin back on and lost 2.5 miles and correct average is 16 mph.

16 Sets 3 m 125 w,  8 Sets, 1 m 200 w, 7 Sets, .25 m 375 w to 400w

Calibrated at 1.78. First hard set did not need 100% although I did not have a lot of energy. Towards the end of the ride I got stronger. A couple hard efforts caught me by surprise and I was able to still get pedals up to speed and finish strong.

Definitely improvement from last session.

Nutley – Fairfield 26.9 Miles

Needed pit stop mid way telling me I was in Ketosis state. Started to bonk the last 3 miles but felt okay before that.

My lower back was hurting every time I had to stop and stand for a light or intersection. Aside from yesterday, this is the first time that injury even when hurting, hurt while riding.

Loantaka -Oldwick BTCNJ Excellent Adventure 70.2 Miles

Road with Steve Felmeister. Perfect day and felt awesome from start. Somehow sprained back on bike and for the first time it effected me while pedaling. Took it easy for a bit and eventually was under control. Upper Aerobic paced at times but pushed pretty hard on Fairmont and again on Whiteneck which went by very fast and Madisonville.

Oak Ridge – Sparta, Andover, Hackettstown, Lk Hopatcong 64.7 Miles

A great route but the worst day. Pouring rain while driving to start. 9am departure schedule but had to wait until 10. Got a flat in the first 20 yards. Sprained my back changing tire. Wheel kept rubbing so spent 20 minutes trying to figure out why for a full 25 minute delay. Dropped chain and due to rushing put a gouge in bottom bracket. Missed a few turns causing the entire ride to be a rush due to Sara having to pick kids up at 3:30 ish. Head wind the entire ride. Forgot to start garmin at start then when did 9 miles in had to reset ride trying to find next turn.

Scheduled for 4-21-15 at 9am in Oakridge, NJ
