Tomorrow: 5 miles easy

 

 

 

Comments: It was an OK ride, but I'm having a little trouble with my bike.  It's squeaky.  I have to see if I can lube something or tighten something or both.

Distance: 13.1 miles

Time: 2:07

 

 

Pace: 9:41 per mile

Stretch: Yes

 

 

 

 

 

 

Weekly mileage: 13.1 miles

Cumulative mileage: 441.8 miles

 

 

 

Tomorrow: Cross training

 

Comments: I was viewing this half marathon as a 13 mile pace run.  I went out way, way too fast.  My first mile was 8:30!  However, I never let my pace drop below 10:00, and my overall pace was OK.  Now I just need to run twice that distance in twice that time!

Comments: I was scheduled to bike, but there were thunderstorms in the morning, and oppressive heat in the afternoon.  So I didn't.  I did do yoga twice, once in the morning, and once in the afternoon.

Bike c. 10 m

 

Tomorrow: 4 miles easy?

 

Comments:  Today's ride was a bit much.  We took a very hilly route.  I may well take an unscheduled day off tomorrow.  Or, I may cut it down to less than 4 miles.  We'll see.
