Three cheers for me, I finally got in a bike ride!! Feeling good about my totals for last week, particularly my running, as I've posted solid workouts back to back to back. Saturday was the Rip Roarin' Ride that started at Liberty Hill High School. I had planned to ride the 79 mile route, until I found out this ride was the same route as the Spokes & Spurs ride I did last March (meaning: HILLY) and decided no thank you, I'll just do the 65 mile route. Averaged 16 mph for the 65 miles, and I was happy with that. I rode at a comfortable pace for the first 50 miles and pushed it the last 15. When I as done I felt as if I could have kept going, so that's good right? I have some work to do on the bike - I've noticed on hilly courses like that my cadence is really inconsistent going up the hills, so I really need to work on not losing momentum when I'm climbing.
Sunday was one of my fav races, the Silicon Marathon relays and also the kickoff for the Austin Distance Challenge. I ran the first leg, a 12K (7.4 miles) and wasn't sure how well I would run since my quads were on fire from Saturday's ride. I really pushed myself and focused on negative splits (ended up passing several people the last few miles). My legs had that "heavy" feeling throughout the race and never really loosened up, but I ended up running a 52:25, good for a 7:02 pace!! YEAH!!
Yesterday was a much needed rest day, followed by an 8 mile run this morning.
Less than 2 weeks til Baltimore. Show me what you got Maryland!!!
