Peeping Tom

This morning’s workout:

2 hour bike ride: 34 miles (17 mph avg)
30 minute run: 3.5 miles (8:36 min/mi avg)

These workouts kill me. I am tired. We rode half of the Boulder 70.3 course plus a bit more. The wind kicked up and I cussed. It got hot. The run was faster than I thought it would be, but I was bone tired by the end. I am not convinced that in just over two months I will be able to swim 1.2, bike 56 and run 13.1.

Will I?

Post workout, I came inside, grabbed some Muscle Milk  and water and sat on the back porch in my sport’s bra and underwear. The bike shorts had to come off immediately. They just had to. I usually go commando, but the underwear provides just a touch extra protection for the lady bits.

Yes, I am a bit dazed.

Golfers (yes, I live on a golf course, now you know) and neighbors be damned. Instead of yelling “Fore!” they can yell “Whore!” I am in my undies because I just did a brick workout and these lengthy episodes kick my ass. So, MYOB (mind your own business).

Call the cops or be a peeping Tom, I don’t care.

What was your workout today? Did you flash anyone?

  1. You bike at least 4x faster than I do; of course the same can be said for our run times. I won't even mention how slowly I swim (or maybe I just did). Take a comfortable break--you deserve it!

    1. Does a hot bathhelp to relax muscles in the body after A two hour bike ride. Why do guy's bits shrink up while bike riding. Sorry to be so forward.

  2. You earned a good airing out of your lady bits on the back porch. Rock on!

  3. A 14 mile run this morning and as my fuel belt rode up, so did my running shorts. Pretty sure I accidentally flashed part of a cheek or two. I am sure that you will be ready for your triathlon, just believe you can and you will.

  4. HaHa....I came back from my run this morning (11.3) and was totally going to stip to my undeis and sports bra and go sit in the pool as an ice bath. Been doing a Saturday 5K circuit with my 9 year old and it makes a Sunday long run feel like HELL after running balls out on SAT....even if only 3.1 miles.

    As for the 70.3, you will make it. I did one right before I got preggo the last time. The bike seems to last FOREVER but all the other parts are good. I don't wear bike shorts either, they really don't do much and I didn't want to run in them. You get used to it. But try to ride alot. I think the riding is way more important than the bricks. Trust me, you'll be so damn happy to get off that damn bike that you will be HAPPY to run.

    Cheers!

  5. I know that feeling of wanting the gear off PRONTO, who cares who might be looking?

    AWESOME job on the brick - that is one serious, but NO DOUBT you will be able to handle that 70.3.

  6. Oh you will be ready and that is honestly speedy fast off the bike for somebody just a little bit ago had a broken hip.

    You are going to kill that 70.3

  7. That workout makes me tired just reading about it. You know you are going to rock that 70.3 though! I ran 6 humid miles and I'm procrastinating on doing my upper body workout. I don't wanna!

    I continuously embarrass my husband (or maybe he secretly likes it?) by running around the house naked with all of the blinds open. Whatevs. Free show.

  8. I have NO doubts that you will be able to swim 1.2, bike 56 and run 13.1. You are super determined and awesome. :) You may lose some underwear along the way, but such is life. :)

    I did an 18 miler today and had two impromptu "potty stops". I was in the middle of no where on a dirt road though, so the only ones that got flashed were the cows. :)

  9. Strip down all you want. It's your house, your body.
    And they can take their eyes somewhere else if they don't want to peep, right?

  10. Did a bike ride (67 miles) that kicked my butt yesterday and a 5 mile easy run today. All I could think of from around mile 50 til the end is and I signed up to do this and then a 1/2 marathon!?!?!? WTF was I thinking! I have no doubt however that you will kill Boulder but Boulder may kill me. :)

  11. haha, i didnt flash anyone today, but my husband did yesterday during the biathlon we did. he changed from run shorts to bike shorts in transition and accidentally pulled his rundies down with his shorts....doh!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm usually super modest, but there have been summer runs in the 100+ heat that have had me stripping on the porch, My neighbors were repulsed, and that's saying a lot, because they have a toilet on their front porch.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I totally recognize that dazed face! It looks like my own after days like yesterday - my longest ride ever...72.5 miles. I bypassed muscle milk, though, and went straight for beer and pizza :-)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Wow you are fast - 17 miles in an hour? You and Lexa must be getting to be great buddies. :)

    Normally I would have no gauge as to if that was fast or not.. but I wanna be cool so this past Friday I decided to start cross training with my mountain bike (can't afford a road bike at the moment). I got lost and ended up doing 37 miles (took me 3 1/2 hours) - so I am very impressed with 17 miles an hour.

    Today is 8 mile run and upper body. I don't think I flashed anyone but I sure picked my butt for several minutes (my underwear was really stuck in a few places) thinking I was alone - then I turned around and 8 bikers were down the path laughing.. we nodded hello and I went on my way.

    You will rock Boulder because from what I have seen since starting to follow - you concur (and then some) everything you set your mind to.

  15. First longer ride yesterday and didn't want to wear bike shorts; I'm feeling the ride today, but not in my legs...

    Sounds like you are doing great. You'll take names at your 70.3

    ReplyDelete
  16. I still haven't gone out yet. Time to motor. What's the Boulder 70.3?

    Crap - the BB10K is in a week. I have NOT been training.

    ReplyDelete
  17. nice job on the brick! i always strip down after a run, socks, shoes, shorts, top... etc. i need to be free of all clothing/gear!

    ReplyDelete
  18. You've just inspired me to go run down my street in front of the neighbors in my underwear... but I don't have any...neighbors OR underwear. I swear no one EVER comes outside in this development. So weird.

    You look like the picture of gentility, sitting there on the porch like that... you're not spread-eagled or anything.

    And way to tackle that workout! Fantastic job! You will be in prime shape for your tri :) I will not be working out today. I am supposed to clean the house *eyes rolling* while husband and kids are at the school fair (but they call it a "marché" cuz they're all french-ish).

  19. Nice! Love it. I gave in today and took an unplanned day off. Hopefully it will help my knee.

  20. When you do bricks, you're allowed to wear whatever you want to (or don't want to...)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Love it! Nice job on your brick today! AND, YES, you WILL be able to do the 70.3!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. As long as you don't wear grannie panties they'll just think it's a bathing suit!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Great brick! You'll be ready, no problem.

    Too funny about the flashing...I'm going to call you Sonja (do you watch Housewives of NYC?)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I ran my first 5k today!!!! I was beginning my training a couple months ago and got turned on to your blog from the Runners World article and you have been inspiring me and making me laugh every since.

  25. I rode 13 miles on the bike yesterday - then did an 18 mile run today. Legs and whole body are tired. Ice bath and just lying around - catching up on DVR episodes. Next week is a little Triathlon in Texas City then 27 days until Grandma's Marathon.

  26. I didn't flash anyone but there is a
    N old fat guy in our campground that has been living in his speedo (the kind you are thinking of) since we got here 3 days ago. He has a really nice tan.

    ReplyDelete
  27. That is awesome! And you will be tired for a while, but you'll adapt. I am not sure if you use a HRM but it is v good for long bikerides. You want to be aerobic at all times (not anaerobic), so that you can run after. I usually do my long rides at HR 150 and lower, for ex.
    You may also find that going commando is much better for the lady bits...less chaffing.

    ReplyDelete
  28. You WILL be able to do the 70.3. The trick of the training is to understand how fast.

    I was a weenie for training today. 1.5k open water swim in 35 minutes then 40 k bike in 90 minutes. Then 20 minute run.

    No flashing.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Sounds like a great workout!

    Today was a rest day as a ran a half marathon yesterday...I always like to take an extra day off after a big race

    ReplyDelete
  30. We just google earth mapped the swim. 1.8k.

    And underware is over rated.

    ReplyDelete
  31. You'll be ready no doubt. I'm a firm believer that you can do anything you put the time/effort/and your mind to. Which is pretty much the definition of SUAR. So, you'll be golden come 70.3. It was gorgeous in Boulder today, I was able to get a 2 hr ride in also! You probably passed my sorry butt somewhere on those country roads.

  32. Just pretend its a bikini! The neighbors probably think so.

  33. Oh you lucky duck you getting to ride the coarse!!!! Great job!!(mamarunsbarefoot)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hey btw... is it a hilly coarse???

  35. Rainy 1 mile this early morning. Missed the hail in the afternoon(was at work)but saw the aftermath.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Great brick workout! You'll be ready for Boulder 70.3, no doubt.
    One piece of advice from someone has has logged lots of miles on the bike (and a couple 1/2 IM): ditch the underpants when wearing biking shorts. Your lady bits will thank you. Trust me: it might not happen every time, but you will eventually discover that underwear under biking shorts are Satan's minions! Ride on.

    ReplyDelete
  37. You are awesome. I go commando on the bike. The thought of wet undies (from a gross lake swim) seems worse than the extra protection they offer. The leg openings are not so friendly. I have done an oly in a bathing suit under my tri shorts, and that is as far as I will go on the bike.

    Great workout. I took both Sat and Sun off this week due a last minuted decision to switch my friday's planned rest/swim with calf sleeves to try it out with bike 60 miles. That was hard, especially since it was supposed to be a rest day. I upset the cosmic balance by riding more this week (almost 100 miles) than my husband. His friend,Kent, crashed into him on Sat, and Kent is still in the hospital with a collapsed lung.

  38. I have been known to flash people and strip out of my bike shorts pretty much any where. But I didn't flash anyone this weekend even though I did seriously consider pulling over for a "pitstop" I did make it back home.
    Now I feel left out.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I agree. You don't want to see, don't look.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I pr'd today(46:05),running the Star6 Memorial 10k Run. I avoided flashing anyone, since I work for the agency that benefited from the event.

  41. "Whore" instead of "fore!" Priceless.
