I'm way too slow to race too. I'll be happy if I can keep
with the C-riders. Plenty of folks to ride with in that range.

Sure, sure. ;-p


Heh. Heh. Heh.

If you buy a CycleOps trainer right now, you get a free CTS
training video in the box. Which one you get appears to be
random (there are 5 -- climbing, MTB, sprinting, criterium,
and time trialing), but I got the one on time trialing.

Heh. Heh. Heh.

Come spring, I'm gonna blow the C-riders outta the water.



Though you come across as gentle and supportive, with great humor. I'm
intuiting that you also have this shark-like intensity, and obvious
bulldog-like persistence and dedication.


I don't know about shark-like, but I do have a competitive
streak in me that wars with my inherent physical wuss-ness.
I was always intensely academically competitive in
college, but it surprised me when cycling brought it out.

Well, now you know. You have a shark-like intensity, staring down your
prey, keeping contact with the peloton. Admit it! And with that helmet, you
look like a tiger shark and a predator. Sleek, silent, deadly on the bike.

You have to have your animal totem, after all.

Sigh. My POINT to Bill Baka was that seeing how fast one can run
ONE MILE is totally different from one's minutes-per-mile pace on
long (or even long-ish) runs.

Bill "La Jolla Half Marathon in 2:02, IIRC" S.


Got that point right away. Not too shabby, 2:02. Probably some hills.


LJ Half is known as one of the toughest around. Includes a fun little jaunt
up the Torrey Pines Grade (note to self: measure distance next time I ride
it). Prolly only 1-1/2 to 2 miles, but quite steep.

At an average 9.25mi/hr pace, you probably ran several 8 min miles
somewhere in there. If you're not feeling well by mile 12, one can
easily end up doing the survivor shuffle and dropping a min/mile. I'd
predict at least a 48 min 10K time off of this. Years of regular
training? (just curious).


I had LOTS of problems that day (including gastro-in-the-bushes-testinal).
It was a cold, wet, windy, miserable morning (I remember my buddy calling at
like 4 am and saying he wanted to bail; told him I was doing it no matter
what). Still, 8.5 to 9-minute miles is pretty much my pace, race or no...
(I think I did a 10K in :47-something, but it was VERY flat! )

I'm no natural runner, by any means. 5-10, stocky frame (170 to 190
extremes). I began running with some friends, entered a 5K here and 10K
there, and then trained for a half. (Former heavy smoker, too.)

Began training for the St. George Marathon -- got up to 22 miles -- but
totally broke down before I could do it. Had stress fractures all over the
place -- ran America's Finest City (Half) with a bunch of 'em (very
painful), then pretty much gave it up. Turns out I have (had?) a condition
with calcium not being absorbed by my body -- it collected in my kidneys
instead of reaching blood -- so I got stones and broken bones! Nasty
combo...(since treated with meds; seems to be working.)

Bill "what was the question?" S.


Bill, what you describe is the opposite - not enough calicum. Kidney
stones are a sign of raging oestoperosis, not the opposite.

Not sure about that "sign of raging osteoporosis" (note spelling), although
in my case it was true (low bone density, thus the stress fractures). I got
plenty of calcium in my diet, but had a condition that prevented it from
being absorbed properly. It collected in my kidneys instead, much to my
chagrin.

I somehow doubt that /most/ kidney stone sufferers (typically male,
30s-40s?) have osteoporosis; rather, they probably consume /too much/
calcium, and it crystallizes in their kidneys.

In fact, the doctors told me that my combination of factors (stones with
weak bones) was highly unusual.

Bill "like I said, meds seem to have corrected it" S.
