Yet again another 50 mile bike did not happen. Storms rolled through Saturday morning which prevented the ride from taking place. At 10am I hit the road for a long run instead. You don't carb load the night before and do nothing so running it would be. The heat was a killer! I tried my best to stay in any shaded areas available but was still exposed to the sun about 55% of the time.
Run: 9 miles (8:38 pace)
The run did not go without drama. When I arrived home the first time I ran to the computer and realized that I was short on my miles. I must have said "this sucks" about 20 times before my husband was pushing my sweaty body back out the door to finish the run. Maybe it was because I was dripping puddles but I am glad that I went back out and completed the run.
So we moved the bike to Sunday. Again.. not the 50 I had wanted. Rain was moving in so our group made our way back to the house. The ride was great and I continue to feel better about drafting. Even moved into the big ring on a couple of straights to hit some higher speeds. Loved it!!!!
Ride: 22 mile (16.3 mph average )
This afternoon Scott and I will hit the pool for a long swim. My plan has 1800 meters but I may push it to 2000 since the bike was cut short. Will likely hit my bike trainer following the swim. Need to get some more time in since the 65 mile charity ride is next Saturday.
I have officially completed the MMTR training plan. Just 786 miles from June 1st until November 1st. Should be a piece of cake.... NOT!!! Guaranteed to be an adventure.
