Favorite run: My mock half marathon where the temps were cool and I was reminded of why I love running. Also, killer 800 m. repeats at the track. (To be honest, this also could've fallen under hardcore run as well. I'm a bit of a masochist apparently.)
Favorite Race: Lennox Firecracker 5k. I raced my smartest 5k to date, place 2nd for women, and won my AG. Whoo!
Bike Miles: 88.7. I outbiked my running mileage 3/4 weeks this month. Uh oh running...you've got some competition!!
Current Jams: Weezer--(If You're Wondering if I Want You To) I Want You To & Can't Stop Partying. Also really digging Eminem & Rihanna's Love The Way you Lie.
Monday I had planned to join the area biking club for their 30 mile recovery ride. We figured this would be my best introductory ride since they go pretty slow for it. I broke down and bought some uggggggggly cycling shorts (camel toe illusion included FO FREE!) to accompany for the ride. And then the storm came in. Aaron and I rode around a bit to check out the flooding and then called it a night.
Unfortunately, I had eaten like I was going to bike 30 miles (caramel roll as big as my face and 1/2 a Qdoba burrito). Since our trails are still flooded and super muddy, I decided to hit the gym for some indoor biking. Armed with some fitness magazines that I have neglected for months, I decided to bike for 60 minutes. Well that 60 minutes led to another 25 when I realized I could get a solid 20 miles in total. I did the first 60 on the recumbent bike (boring!) and the last 25 on the upright (much more fun and a better work out IMO). I've never actually used the upright bike, so I was surprised at how much harder it seemed to be. Plus I wasn't experiencing the weird butt/hammy pain that I was on the recumbent.
Whatever you do, please don't tell Princess Leia or Polly Sunshine about last night. I fear revolt! There's two of them and one of me. Things could get ugly. :(
Also, thoughts on the Brett Favre retirement "rumors"? He will always have my heart even if he has broken it on more than one occasion. ;)
