BIke Ride

Sunday was a good day. I got on my bike and rode 13 miles with my neighbor. He's about 10 years younger and a former tri guy. In fact I've been told through the grapevine (street gossip) that he tried out for the US Olympic decathlon. This I haven't confirmed yet but sooner or later I'm going to have to ask him. Either way I was glad for the company - he's a good guy. And he helped me power up the hills.

Monday I ended up running about 6 miles total. Legs feel pretty good, and my conditioning seems pretty good also. Actually I'm surprised because I've only had 3 days off this month. I was sure two weeks ago when I upped my mileage that I was going to get fatigued in my legs but that hasn't happened. If fact yesterday I felt stronger overall that I had in a long time. Hopefully this will continue for a while.

The rest of the week should be the same as last week - I'm shooting to log another 12-15 miles this week putting me at 30 for the week (including cycling). Another solid week so I can't complain.

Keep Steppin'
