5 hours on trainer owwwww

Kell got me this photo from I stock ? Just gotta get a frame , its just missing the ST in front of the bike. I had procrastinated all day sunday for doing my 5 hours easy on the trainer yesterday,partially to do with my sat night out until 2am and sleepin 'til 10. But finally at 9 pm I began pushin the pedals , supposed to be easy non technical trails but because I'm on the trainer I thought I would try to maintain a 15 mph avg speed which would give me 75 miles at the end came up with 73 miles and that was fine by me. Finished at 2 am . next sunday she wants 6 hours. Gotta get more Butt er and motrin. I gotta say I am very proud of myself for sticking with it the whole 5 hours , one quick break for bathroom and butter refresh , but as far as food drink I planned it perfect for energy.

Today it is 8 degrees out, I'm gonna fill out my order to KENDA tires 'cause it's all I can afford right now. this year I have to get a lot of stuff both for the bike and gear for the races, tents ,lights, tools. not to mention all the other things in life I must stay ahead of. This lay off is reall gonna bite if I don't see something coming over the horizon. In a week I will be searchin Craigslist for odd jobs. I'd do well to find 30 hours at 15$ an hour cash to keep me above water.
Besides family I've noticed little by little people passing by here and checking out my blog thing I wanna refresh what I've got here.
I'm 38 yo male from wisconsin training for several 12 hour solos and a 24 hour solo race this year mainly to really to put full effort into it and see what I can pull off, I don't expect podium places but I want to be a worthy competitor . And when the 24 comes around I want to be able to finish it without injury , a good attitude and knowing I put in the effort to get me the best result possible. I am currently following a 12 week personal record training plan from LW COACHING for 12 hour solo which is helping me stay focussed and not overdoing it. I've been following a lo of different rider Blogs and forums tring to gain as much knowledge as possible. I am open to constructive input to help with my training or support so feel free to say hey and let me know what you think.

Be Well...

Good luck with everything Jason! Hang in there, I'm sure you'll be back in action on the job front before you know it! I had to rearrange my schedule around some family plans since my sister decided to do a destination wedding. :/

I'm going to easy into the distance thing. I'm hitting the OMBC races hard a mixing in some time in WV and MI. I'm hoping upon hope I can get a 6 hour and 12 hour in this year! I wish you luck in your endeavors!
