Getting back to training UPDATED!

For the past week I’ve been feeling like a big slug! This morning I went for a run… 10.3 miles in 1:21.11 that’s 7:52 pace… not bad for a slug!

Tomorrow I’m going for a 60-mile ride…

Update on the ride:

I got lost! This was only the second time I’ve taken this route and I got lost… again! My planned 60 mile ride turned out to be 51 miles but I averaged 19+ Mph so I’m happy with that.

Funny thing...

I was riding down a back road, not a single house for miles when I started to feel the urge to relieve myself. I pulled over to the side of the road and headed into the woods to take care of business. In the middle of taking care of business I noticed a little mosquito had landed on my leg, I brushed him away. This must have made him mad because he brought back friends… lots of them. The next thing I know I’m being swarmed by dozens of little biting mosquitoes. I started running for the road… I wasn’t finished yet! I managed to complete the task at hand, clip in my pedals and hit the road with only suffering a couple bites!

Lessons learned…
1. Don’t Pee in the woods during peak mosquito season.
2. I can run the Pee at the same time!Mosquito bites itch!

Back from Vacation

My vacation is over... the weather could have been better... a lot better... but we had a good time. I'll post some pictures...

I've been back for almost a week now and for some reason I'm having a hard time getting back into the swing of training. It's not that I don't want to train, I'm just so tired all the time. I'm keeping up with the running, I just can't get myself up in the morning to go swimming.

This weekend I'll have to get my act together!

Question... Has anyone used the new tool for customizing your Blog template?
