    Monday bike day 11.43 mi 00:45 15.1mph pace

    HR 128. Struggling to get it over 130. I mean it’s level 11, come on!

  2. RUN
    Easing down the gradual hill 7.01 mi 01:23 11:50 pace

    HR 138. Copperton to home with off the clock walk breaks (well, some were on and some were off). This was my second solo “long” run in as many weeks. It’s hard sometimes to find the gumption in you... read more

      Sometimes the mental game is the hardest part- but a dog definitely helps!

    Squeezing in the insteadmill 2.45 mi 00:30 12:14 pace

    No idea on HR - forgot my watch. We were short on time but was glad to drag hubby to the gym with me for a quick 30 of cardio before dinner tonight. Played with speed and decline - didn’t realize a... read more

  6. RUN
    good Running to a friend's house 6.28 mi 01:23 13:14 pace

    HR claims 139 but I don't believe it. I think it was picking up my cadence instead of my HR for big chunks - a hazard of winter running with layers I guess. Anyway - had a last-minute change... read more

  9. RUN
    Who mapped this route?! 8.1 mi 01:45 12:57 pace

    Third run in a week. First time that’s happened in months. It was a multi dog run, too. Cloudy windy and a balmy 57! Tough route, with a downhill ending.

  10. RUN
    alright laps and stuff 3.25 mi 00:42 12:51 pace

    Bike the heck?! 13.29 mi 01:00 13.3mph pace

    HR 123?! I felt like I was cranking so hard trying to coax my HR up. I had the dumb bike on level 11. Distance low too (b/c of higher level?). Sorry that this wasn’t a run - too many obstacles toda... read more

      I think "bike the heck" is going to be my swear for 2018. Sounds like this wasn't the satisfying workout, but you got it done. Gold star for that.

    good zippity Copperton (abbreviated) 6.42 mi 01:16 11:48 pace

    Avg HR 136. We were trying to beat a snowstorm! It started to flurry towards the end. We had expended so much energy going faster than usual (even though I was not particularly "in the game... read more

    Felt like i was pedaling my brains out. My heart rate took forever to break 130.

    Long run long day 6.05 mi 01:15 12:19 pace

    Avg 139??? I don’t think that’s right; wasn’t checking the watch much on a chilly day. Too many layers to move to check it haha. Could definitely feel that this was my third run in a week. It’s bee... read more

  20. RUN
    good Seven a different way 7 mi 01:29 12:42 pace

    Avg HR 133. For the first half of this, I kept thinking “who planned this route?!” Cause it was stinky. But then we had slight downhill for the entire back half and it was all good.
