1700 - YAY!!!  I'm in PTown!!  I've been craving being back here for over a year now!
               We left this morning at 0430 (THANK YOU SHAUN!!) for the airport, and after a pretty decent flight to Philly, the day got a bit stressful.  First, we thought we were gonna miss our connection because we circled Philly airport for almost 40 minutes.  But it turns out that our connecting flight was also late getting in so we were actually able to eat breakfast and then board the next plane with no problem.  Crisis averted...no more stress!!  Then of course, there was the drive out to PTown.  Fun (we stopped in Plymouth to see THE Plymouth Rock...pics to come), but long...over 2 hours.  When we got here, we headed up to the Bed and Breakfast that I stayed at with Shane in 2007 and we secured ourselves a room.  Then we went shopping!!!  2 hours and 100 bux later, here we are in our room getting ready to go to dinner.  I'm so happy to be back in PTown for the weekend...I frickin' LOVE this place!!!!

            It's cold here, but it's still a lot of fun...Brian just has to stop me from shopping!!!

Part of the mother of all failed workouts. Logistics were just not right. We were supposed to be doing descending bricks but there was no place to put the bikes in between. It would be pointless to take 5 to 7 minutes to put the bikes up when the whole premise of the workout was to switch between biking and running as quickly as possible. So we just put the bikes up and ran for 15 minutes after the 30 minute bike. GRRR...I hate when things don't work like I want.

By the way, this includes all the stopping and starting and waiting for cars at intersections. I had no regular stopwatch, I just watched the clock.

Run
  • 14m 40s
  • 1.74 miles
  • 08m 26s /Mi

No motivation since we were both kinda bummed about the workout.

Bike #2
  • 11m 27s
  • 2.56 miles
  • 13.41 Mi/hr

The trip from the parking lot to the beach. Up and over the Memorial Bridge...nice climb!!

Bike #3
  • 10m 57s
  • 2.56 miles
  • 14.03 Mi/hr

The trip back from the beach to the car. Another trip over the bridge. I like to climb.

HAPPY EASTER!

0905 - Needed the extra sleep last night for sure.  Today we have a big workout on the schedule.  A combination of bike/run bricks.  We'll see how it works out...I hope my feet are in good enough shape to run!

OK, Umstead results are FINALLY up!! 
I was 7th out of 35 in my Age Group (M30-39...they are ten-year age groups) and I was 24th overall out of 248.  I'm good with these stats but I think I can do better.

Just a short day at work today.  I have lots of catching up to do.  Bill paying, schedule making, car repairing, etc.  I'm debating getting my brakes and suspension done NOW, as opposed to when I get the last of the credit cards paid off.  I really need front brakes and front suspension.
