It could be the heat, it could be my mileage, it could be my age.
I'm going for my mileage.
This week I worked out 6 days with 4 of them involving both running and riding. It was an unusual week in the biking arena. My run miles were 26.3, nothing unusual if anything a little low.
But my biking miles were the highest for a week yet, 107.2
Today I ran 9. T and I got going early before it was too hot and it was one of those stunningly beautiful days. It didn't take too long for it to warm up though and I was amazed at how much I was sweating after just 4 miles when we stopped to use the bathroom.
Once I got home I was going to stop for just a short time so I could be back out there biking before it got even hotter. But I needed some rest so I took more than an hour. Then I went out for a short ride and this time I took my camera. I decided I was going to challenge myself to take 5 pictures of beautiful things. I took my time going on a familiar route looking for things to photograph that I hadn't already taken a million pictures of. I was not entirely successful but I did explore one new road and at least got a different view. Enjoy!

Beautiful Sight # 2
I love the river I run and bike beside.
This is looking down into a ravine. I only see
this on a long run, it's a good place to
take a break and have a snack.

Same mountain I love, different view from a new road today
