Nothing to train for at the moment, so I decided to head back to last weeks bike course and see if I could match/beat my race time. No dice. I completed the course in about an hour, but I did not start from inside the park, so my bike was actually about 1 mile short of last Sunday’s race. I rode an entire mile/hour slower. But having said that, I did not have the luxury of having a “closed” course, so I ended up sitting at the Rt 11 intersection both out and back for a few minutes until the light turned green. I also think the fact that I had run for an hour on Friday probably played a factor in my slower time… my legs still felt a wee bit tired from that excursion.
Ran for 33 minutes tonight – it was a bit of a difficult run, I got a stitch in my side, which would not go away until I stopped and walked it out. Also, it seemed I had to stop and wait for traffic to pass more that I normally have to… I must have stopped and started my watch 4 or 5 times. But oh well, at least I was out and about “pounding the pavement”.
