10:30am start. Perfect day for a bike ride! Temps in the 60's and sunny. I felt really good until about mile 30. Then I was getting hungry for lunch. I knew I only had about 10 more miles to go and was hoping a fresh bottle of Gatorade would see me through. It didn't. Around mile 35 I turned into the wind. Then I reached a section of some bad chip seal road with a headwind. Then there was a section of uphill chip seal with a headwind. My tail was draggin' by the time I got to the end.

Today's ride was a ride of exploration to some extent.  Instead of riding from home, I loaded up the bike and drove to the village where I work.  From there I rode my bike to the YMCA to explore how I might be able to ride to the Y to swim and then ride back.  Some stop and go traffic through town, but it wasn't bad.  I then turned around and headed over to the start of the bike and hike trail known as the Greenway Trail.  Rode that partway and got off at one the intersecting roads and back to my car.  Well, I made a short pitstop for lunch about 1 mile from where I parked.  The little village where I parked is having their local fair this weekend so I splurged on a hotdog and some sweet potato french fries.  mmmmmm good!  Loaded up my bike and headed to the ice cream store to pick up the ice cream Birthday Cake that I ordered for my DH's birthday today!  Dessert for tonight!!!!!!

Read some more about technique and I think I am doing this better. At least I felt like it was harder than the last time so that is good.

Official times for my 5k from over a week ago are FINALLY posted so the race report is done now.  That took awhile!

a.m. commute: 1:11:34, 17.90 miles, 15 mph average. Finally able to get my butt moving early enough to take a longer route into work. Beautiful morning! Saw a very chubby muskrat waddling alongside my neighbor's pond.

p.m. commute: 23:37, 5.64 miles, 14.3 mph average. Legs dead. Windy!

Not the planned miles, but at least some miles. Was going to do the longer route in the a.m., but it was pretty foggy early so I chose the shorter route. I was wanting to do a 20-25 mile ride on the way home, but I left work late and then had to run into town to do an errand before heading home. So the first couple miles on the ride home were in stop and go traffic, but I didn't separate them out.

Well this might be good news.  I was really doubtful that I was going to be able to do our local triathlon next month BUT now there is a possibility of putting together a relay team with me on the bike leg.  :)  :)  This might just work.  If it doesn't pan out, maybe I will just volunteer.

Tried some pool running this morning. Don't know if I was doing it properly or not, but I was doing something.

11:30am Hot and breezy ride. I love my bike. Nice loop south and east of home. Coming down a hill I had to brake for a deer. Probably passed about 15 feet in front of me. That collision would have ruined my day.

Back on the disabled list.  About a week ago, I noticed some soreness in my left achilles which is opposite the one that has been giving me all the trouble for the past 11 months.  I was hoping with lots of icing and cutting way back on my volume that it would be ok.  Ok cutting back on volume.  That is so funny.  I run around 10-12 mpw.  [sarc]Yep, I've been really going all out on my mileage.[/sarc]  Jeez!   It felt ok during my 2am jog around the track yesterday.  Maybe it was all the dancing and cheering?  All I know is that it is VERY sore today.  I'm not going to push it any further so me and my bike are going to be best friends until further notice.  I guess the pool is calling me too.
