Hello Sunshine! You've Made it to NY!

Today was just wonderful 80 degrees of sunshine and warmth. I had a half day at work and I was excited to get out on my bike. I know it was going to be a slow ride as I am on a recovery week but hey, I got to go outside and ride!! I put on my TRAIN THIS gear, pumped up the tires, put the helmet and shoes on and was ready to roll! My honey was off today too so he joined me.

Averaging about a 16mph speed, I actually kept in my HR Zone 1 (the higher end). I had a few mishaps where I felt the wind almost knock me and my bike over but I didn't care. I was enjoying the warmth and sunshine. My guy was actually more afraid than I was today on the downhills. I just went, he heald back due to the wind. I said screw It, I fall, I fall. I didn't care.

I got home and decided to go for my Recovery run in my Vibram Bikilas. I felt fast in them, but now my calves are paying for it as I did a 30min recovery run in them today.

I have been thinking long and hard about the Run this Sunday. I looked up my time from last year, wrote a range of times I would like to come in and have been keeping it close to me for the day. By the time Sunday comes its going to be a wad of paper and ink in my pocket!!

Dont mind the Enablex pad- LOL!!
The forecast is looking good for this weekend! The race will probably start in high 40s-low 50s with a high in the 60s for the day!! Woo hoo!!


  1. I am not sure what I like more, the paces on your fridge, the paces in your pocket, or the enablex.... HA!

  2. I love your goals. You go get 'em girl!

  3. Perfect temps for a PR!! You can do it! At least it isn't written on a Viagra tablet.
