Saturday again it was supposed to rain so I put off my bike ride and ran - 11 miles. Yikes! I have decided I am going to run/walk my half in two weeks. So at every mile of this run I walked for one minute. It made a huge difference in my mental attitude knowing this "break" was coming on a regular basis. I didn't die and easily (but slowly) did the whole 11. I haven't decided what I'll do next weekend. What do you usually do for a distance the week before a half marathon?
Today I rode 32 miles - and these days that is a longer distance for me. I waited for the afternoon as it was low 40s this morning. I did a loop ride with part of it being around Lake Dunmore. It was cloudy so not a gorgeous day but I had a great ride and really enjoyed being out there longer than I have been lately. I dodged a bullet as when I finished I found my back pouch unzipped. It carries my keys and wallet. Both were still there! I am usually obsessive about making sure it is zipped. I had a snack when I stopped to use the bathroom and I think I was thinking I would put back what I didn't eat but I put in the bento box instead. Whew that I didn't lose anything.
Yesterday we went to Tunbridge World's Fair which is in Vermont of course! It is an agricultural fair that we hadn't been to in 12 years. It was packed but fun. We visited exhibits, animals and ate fair food - mostly maple stuff. I went to go to get some particular articles that you can't find at a store. Turned out the woman who owned the business was in my high school class. (We may have changed a bit in the couple of years since then - it took the conversation we had to discover this.)
Then I posted a picture on Instagram only to find out from Pahla that her cousin had posted the exact same picture moments before. Turns out even though Pahla lives in CA her cousin lives in Vermont. Small world day for sure.
Loved this old bike display.
Had to visit the school.
This guy weighted a mere 3000 pounds.
The Instagram picture that Pahla saw twice!
