Bike: 22.2 Miles
Avg. Speed: 14.1mph
Run: 3.1 Miles
Yesterday I decided to go back out to Donaldson to do another ride. This time I wanted to do the full distance of my duathlon coming up in less then 2 weeks. Didn't get out there until about 11:30 but was able to do 22.2 miles. The ride was really uneventful and most of all I just enjoyed being out and riding. The weather was again just beautiful with the temp hitting about 78 degrees. Very fun ride and I look forward to longer distances.
Got home and enjoyed some time again playing outside with my wife and daughter. I decided around 7:30 last night to go ahead and run after my daughter went down for bed. Around 8:30 I took off with the goal of 3.1 miles. About a mile in I looked down at my Garmin and saw I was running an 8:30 pace, ouch, it didn't seem I was going that fast. I decided to slow up the pace and was surprised to feel that a 9:20 pace felt ok. I finished the 3.1 strong and felt great again after the run. For me to hold a 9:17 pace for 3.1 miles on a route that has some tough hills is just an incredible feeling. Back in October I was struggling to hold a 12 min pace and a lot of my runs were in the 13 minute range. Very pleased with were I'm at right now and what a great run last night.
It's been a good month of May so far. Here are my totals for the month.
Bike: 58.3 Miles
Run: 32.2 Miles
Strength: 12 workouts
Again, just wish my running miles were a little higher but I can't complain. Last week I ran 11.2 miles and this week I ran 12.5. Tonight is my Chest/Bicep/core workout and I'm looking forward to hitting the weights. Hope everyone has a great Monday. - Jason
