I started to go for a run but just wasn’t feeling it, so I turned around after 200 yards or so and went into cycling mode. 32.3 miles of mixed terrain riding on my cyclocross bike (roughly half soggy gravel and half paved roads). My average pace was 16.1 MPH. 103.6 miles for the week makes this my highest mileage cycling week in a few years (2015? I honestly can’t recall the last time I rode a hundred miles in a week).

I had caught a powerful whiff of dope smoke as I rolled up, so at first I assumed it was a bong. Turns out the dope smell was from a *different* car. This guy had the glass tube in his mouth, foil with undetermined substance in his left hand, and lighter in his right hand.
Hahaha, I would have thought you were riding in Portland. Crazy to think that sort of thing is more commonplace than we’d like to admit.

My comment was for @Michigan Planner , missed the citation.

Your power for 5s has increased quite a bit SB! I assume other metrics have followed?

11.7 trail miles today with about 2,200ft of gain. Like Dusty, temps dropped after rain overnight so I enjoyed the 70s and felt cooler most of the run. The last miles were enjoyable and I could have continued longer. Also capped off a 50 mile week but this next week will be lower with family in town. I guess morning miles may become my thing if I want any at all.

I officially finished month 1 of marathon training and experiencing some hip pain in the beginning of runs and usually wont go away till a mile in. I have been stretching and resting properly but is there anything else i can try to minimize the pain? I dont want this to linger and get worse

I think I’m going to drop the run training. It’s just not fun anymore, but cycling is. I’ll put a proper tire on the rear of my road bike (it has a trainer tire still) and get going on that.

Today I went fishing (3/4 mile of scrambling through talus and boulders), hiked about three miles total, and did some bouldering and climbing (I soloed the easiest route in the guidebook). The wild raspberries and wax currants (not pictured) were extra tasty today. I caught six trout (four browns and two rainbows).

I think my initial 5s power wasn’t representative because it was my first time doing the test. The current number is probably a bit high given my lack of focused training in the past few months. But i imagine it’s still in the ballpark.

Sometimes it just takes the body some time to warm up and given this is marathon training, you will hurt from time to time. Unless it is a sharp pain, you should be fine I’d assume.

So the watch bezel/face of my Garmin 45 popped off. I popped it back on and resealed it but don't know how long it may last. Seems like the lifespan of my electronics is right around 2 years for anything that I run with.

What are other people using these days? Coros is newer and seems to be a great deal at $199 for the PACE 2. Garmin has the newer Garmin 55 but the Coros seems to have better battery life which would be nice. The Fenix series would be fun but hard to convince my wife I need to spend $599 on a watch...

I love my Fenix 6x. It's on the pricier side, but I think it has been worth it in the 15 months I've had it.

A local running friend wanted a Fenix but scoffed at the price and got a Coros about 6 months ago. I don't recall exactly which one (I think it was the Apex or the Apex Pro) but he had all sorts of problems with the interface and syncing with the app and whatnot. He ended up returning it to REI after about a month and getting a Garmin instead.

41.1 miles at 18.1 MPH on my road bike. I rode bits and pieces of the Ironman 70.3 course, with a side trip to Lyons as well. The weather was pretty nice, with temps around 80, but the air is rather smoky.

Here’s the pic from Lyons:
