Last year the covered bridge was being repaired so there
was a detour. I rode my bike through it the other day. I actually rode
on a lot of the route I'll be running on Sunday.
1. I have a half marathon on Sunday... again. I will be running and walking again. I guess my goal is to beat my time from 3 weeks ago. Believe me I am not positive that will happen. I am still so slow. I am not sure if I am using my injury as an excuse and being lazy and not doing harder workouts. It isn't completely healed but it is oh so close. I do feel like I can pick it up more. I actually do this best on the treadmill but I'm not setting the thing on fire. Still, I am looking forward to the half on Sunday. The weather should be good, it's a pretty course and there is always the bakery after, right?
2. This week here has been gorgeous! No problem getting some good biking in. I rode after running on Monday and while my car's tires were being changed on Tuesday. I've had doubles 3 days this week and tomorrow just biking will be lovely. I'm getting my hair cut and I love the riding out there so my bike is already packed. I am going to take Saturday off before the half and rest by cleaning the laundry room! Actually I have a lot to get done and I'm kind of looking forward to having the time to do it.
3. My swimming - I guess it is what it is. Today felt particularly slow and I didn't feel very motivated. But I went. I got it done. I guess that counts for something.
4. I have no big April recap but I love my stats (especially compared to March).
Running 99.2 (37.9)
Biking 279.8 (11.3)
Swimming 12,900 yards (25,900)
The swimming had to go down. I couldn't keep that up while adding biking and running back in. My biking miles just make me smile and smile! And truthfully I'm pretty darn happy to see those running miles back up there also!
May the month of May find us all finding our workout bliss and staying healthy and uninjured.
