I had an awesome training weekend this weekend. I didn’t set any new records, but I got in a 25 mile ride and an 8 mile run, and it felt good to get the mileage in. It helped that the weather was pretty perfect for both. Not too hot, not too cold, and the rain held off. I feel like I’ve been biking in threatening rain a lot lately, which is much less fun than it sounds. Running in the rain can be enjoyable, but biking in the rain? Thumbs down.
I’ll hit on this in my weekly recap, but after looking at my training on Strava, this was the first week in a while that I had 6 workout days on the schedule and actually hit them all. Life has been busy and so my training has been less than it should be. That could be exactly why things felt so good this weekend. It could also be why it felt like it took me 6 miles to warm up on my run yesterday – my body just wasn’t used to this kind of work. Or it could have been all the hills I rode on Saturday. Or a little bit of both.
Either way, it feels good to be back. Now to just get my diet back into order and it should be smooth sailing. Until something else crazy comes up.
