Mountain Bike (Roads) 3:00:47 [3] 43.3 mi (14.4 mph)

Rode WAY north to see what was up there. Trees. And a peacock. I enjoyed the ride and the new route. I planned it perfectly and even remembered the whole thing. (Road memory-O?) It was nice to be riding by trees rather than just farm fields.

Hike (Walk/run) 30:22 [3] 2.1 mi (14:28 / mi)

Run 1 min, walk 3 min. Felt fine on the achilles. I felt slow and sluggish during the run segments, but I felt that way on my first ride back too. Total of 8 minutes running It will come back soon, I'm sure. Next time, I will do 1:2 and if that works, I'll go to 2:2 and keep slowly adding more.

Mountain Bike (roads) 1:14:00 [3] 17.4 mi (14.1 mph)

Absolutely no wind, so I went northeast. I rode by the dirt race track, but there was a race and the dust was in the air for a half mile radius. So, I took a slightly different route home. I started pretty easy and built up to going faster as the ride went on (but not all that fast... just faster than the start) Love riding/running around sunset time. So pretty!

Mountain Bike (Roads) 1:14:03 [3] 16.3 mi (13.2 mph)

Beautiful evening. Glad to warm up after the pool run, though I did wear arm warmers the whole ride. Nice easy ride, great sunset and courteous drivers. :)

Run (Pool Run) 1:00:00 [3]

Forgot that I had this weird neoprene shirt thing until right before the workout. I was looking for something for extra flotation when I saw it. I bought it two years ago thinking I'd wear it for paddling. Nope, but it was perfect to keep me a little warmer for the pool run. I was pretty good for about 40 min, but I was able to deal with being a bit cold the last 20. I got better at remembering to breathe this time. Next run - real road running!!!! (and walking)

Mountain Bike (Roads) 2:07:40 [3] 30.5 mi (14.3 mph)

Back roads. Today was my chance at bike rage. Some guy passed me on a back road while another car was coming (a rare thing) and almost caused a head on crash. The other guy had to go off the road. I was in such aggressive bird flipping mode I almost dislocated my elbow. THEN, he turned into his driveway 0.2 miles up the road. He had just opened his car door as I was passing and I screamed "Way to almost cause a head on crash to save 20 seconds!" Otherwise uneventful. Pretty windy with some ominous clouds, but no rain. I had a rain coat just in case, though.

Mountain Bike (Gravel Roads) 1:34:00 [3] 19.8 mi (12.6 mph)

Gravel road ride around my parents' house. I went North and East first, which was not ideal since the wind was out of the West-southwest. BUT, I had to go check out this hill my dad was telling me about. He said it was like a wall, but he hadn't tried it out yet. Well, it was one of those that looks bad from afar, but isn't really that bad when you ride it. Even going easy, it only took me 2 minutes. No problem. Actually, there were lots of good hills on that road. Nice ride, overall. I like the overgrown landscape out there. The ride back was lots of headwind, but I expected and planned for it.
