(Tsk, tsk, tsk)
(He was starting to feel the affects I think, and actually stuck his tongue out at me when I got upset with him. Can you believe it?!?!)
The rest of the week I've had some really good workout days and some not so good ones. I have loved the Olympics, but I have let it eat into my sleep time, and I felt it on some of my workout mornings. I did, however, get to bed in plenty of time last night to have a really great workout this morning. I went on my longest ride ever, and I did it solo. Starting out at 0715 I went out for 4 hours and hit 76.01 miles in that time frame. It was a fairly hilly route with some a couple of 20% grades--I think I saw a 6mph on my Garmin when I was going up those! It was a great ride though. It was hot and humid, but that doesn't bother too much riding. I did need about a 1/2 bottle more of water though. I "bricked" it and ran 30 minutes afterwards as well (3.57 miles)--I was feeling great starting out, and actually could have physically run more but I could tell I was starting to literally overheat. That can happen in August in Texas at 1200 in the afternoon...Needless to say, when I got in a tub of cold water it felt WONDERFUL. Since then I have just wanted eat! Haha! No overdoing it though!
I think once the Olympics are fully over I'm going to do a "Brittany's Favorites" Olympic Recap! I was trying to remember why it seemed SO LONG since I had seen a summer Olympics...that's when I realized that when it was in Athens, Greece in 2004 I was in Baghdad, Iraq and really wasn't watching TV...no wonder it seemed like I hadn't seen once since the Sydney games in 2000, because in fact, I had not!
