i spent all last week at the beach - soaking up sun, playing in the waves, making piles of sand, reading books,
week in review (6/28 - 7/4)
total miles: 36.91 (semi-victory -- upward motion, but not by much)
time spent running: ~ 5 hrs 18 mins
avg hr: unknown. didn't feel like wearing the strap.
avg run pace: 9:11/mile
off days: 1-ish (from running)
i was back home for july 4th and after being a dedicated little runner all week long, my mojo tanked and threw a temper tantrum about going for a run on sunday morning. i was, however, randomly in the mood for a bike ride and tagged along with josh for 27+ miles. i stuffed some chomps and gu's in my shirt pocket and josh pointed out "you know 27 miles is like the equivalent of 5-6 miles running". hey, like i need an excuse to eat chomps here.
wow was it tough. there was one particular loooong downhill that as i coasted my only thought was "this is going to suck on the way back" (turns it out it was only about 350ft climb over 2 miles, i'm such a wimp). i don't know how you cyclists/biathletes/triathletes do it. i'd like to blame my slowness on my bike, a trek 7000 hybrid. c'mon that's like 30 lbs heavier than all you carbon fiber riders! :)
mine is complete with a bell and kickstand! don't hate.
sunday (7/4) am bike ride: 27.40 miles, 1:53-ish, so about 14-14.5mph? yeah, totally blaming that on my heavy bike.
