I look forward to fun time with both of these and hope these two critters have fun with each other!
This weekend was a great training weekend. Due to the MP Ball on Thursday night, we had Friday off, and that was nice. I got in a great 12 mile run before it got to hot. I kept it in my Z2 Heart Rate range and still managed an 8:05 m/min pace and that was awesome...it felt so good. Then on Sat. morning I got up and joined a friend for a bike ride (we linked in with a group for a bit) and I ended up doing 70.7 miles--my longest ride ever, and at a decent pace. I did a brick (bike then run), so after the bike I did 30 min of running, and I felt SO GOOD. I knocked out 3.87 miles, giving me a good 7:45 m/min pace. WOW, I couldn't believe it. My confidence and endurance is growing with each good weekend's worth of training. This morning I knocked out an hour recovery run, and while I didn't push it, I felt really good--no major soreness at all from the previous two-days training. I met my folks and two brothers and a friend of one of my brothers at a Lake half-way between where I live and they live in order to pick up Annie. What a fun weekend! Annie is definitely a sweetie and training is great! :)
