Great Saturday...

Bike: 15.3 Miles
Time: 1:04:06
Avg Speed: 14.3mph
Run: 3.2 Miles
Time: 32:03
Pace: 10:01

Got up around 7:45 this morning, ate my favorite breakfast, packed up my gear, and was on my way to Donaldson Center by 8:45. The weather was a nice cool 60 degrees when I started and not a cloud in the sky, just beautiful.

Jumped on the bike and kept a nice easy pace for 15.3 miles. Jumped off the bike and probably spent about 3 minutes before I was off on the run. The first 200 feet or so were again awkward but once I got about a half mile in I felt great. When I hit the 2 mile mark I was really on a high and felt great and decided to do the 5k distance. To my surprise I was holding my race pace very easily through the entire run and when I crossed my finish line I had alot more in the tank. I wanted to keep running but decided to just do the 3.2 and live to fight another day. I was really on a high when I finished, what a great workout! I put on a dry shirt packed up my gear and was able to catch up with David and Mendy right before I left to wish him luck in his tri event tomorrow.

I was very excited to get home and clean up because I had plans to spend the afternoon with my daughter Gracie. My wife had an event to go to so it was just me and my "bean". We took off to get a few things at Target and then it was off to the park to play. We spent almost 2 hours at the park goofing off and what a blast we had. Got home and she helped me wash the car, or, really wash herself:). We had fun playing and splashing in the water what a blast and the highlight of my day. Hope everyone had as good a Saturday as I did. - Jason

Sounds like a good workout for the day.

Jason, that was a great workout...way to run so consistently....and the afternoon with your daughter.."bean" giggling over that sounds wonderful, I miss those days with my daughter now that she's grown into a 22 year old woman. Though we are trying to plan a camping trip for this summer if her schedule will allow for it... sort of reminds me of that Harry Chapin song..."Cats in the Cradle" I think it was.

What a great way to end a workout - feeling good.

What is it about kids and hoses that always turns into a good time? What a great day.

Good seeing you out there, and glad the weekend was great. Ours was full of early mornings, but fun none the less.
