Mountain Bike (back roads) 1:58:26 [3] 27.3 mi (13.8 mph)

Strong wind out of the south. Exploring some roads I hardly ever ride because they would usually put me in a "finish into the headwind" ride which I don't really like. So, this wasn't too well-planned and I ended up having to ride a few miles on Garfield Rd, which is busier than I like to ride on. At least it's easy for people to see you from far away.

Run 53:00 [3]

Pool Running- I finally got the float belt. Pretty boring, but ok. Better than the treadmill, probably. I didn't feel like the float got me high enough out of the water and kept holding my breath, so I got a pool noodle and added that, which got me high enough that I felt like I could breathe. Still kept finding myself holding my breath though. oops. I guess I need to focus on that next time.

Road Bike 1:11:50 [3] 18.2 mi (15.2 mph)

Glad I did this second after the pool run. I really needed to get warmed up (neighbor's pool is still cold) Overall felt good, but think I'm going back to the mountain bike. My road shoes are a bit tight and the back of my heel was a bit irritated at the end.

Road Bike (Rail Trail) 1:56:53 [3] 32.2 mi (16.5 mph)

Rail Trail out and back. At mile 13, I decided to start kicking it up... more at 14 almost to TT speed and then pretty much full TT at 15 until I hit the turn-around point. Too bad I had a major headwind as that was a super open area. Oh well, good to get some effort in. However, when I turned around and lightened the effort, I realized my lower right calf was hurting a bit, so I decided I was done with the hard efforts and just kept a good steady pace for the ride back. With the tail wind, I was still able to increase my average pace by about .6 mph. No impromptu races with men in cargo shorts today. Oh, and I did note some discomfort on the back of the heel when biking over bumpy things (wooden bridges, rough road) like the vibration bothered it. It wasn't necessarily in the achilles itself.

Mountain Bike (Fun times) 1:32:40 [3] 20.8 mi (13.5 mph)

Fun easy recovery ride with Work4Justice. We just chatted for 45 minutes on the bike until it was time to turn around. Then, we rode home and chatted that whole way too. I worried I was enabling W4J to exercise while injured, but she assured me that it wasn't bothering it (and she's going to the doctor tomorrow.) Great to get to catch up!
