  1. RUN
    good Mill at the gym 5 mi 00:42 08:26 pace

    Wanted a softer surface today as my legs are still feeling a bit battered from Sunday's long run. Average HR = 127. Nice and easy.

    great Morning Ride w/Jon 22.52 mi 01:21 16.6mph pace

    Nice recovery ride with Jon this morning. The weather was perfect with just a little chill in the air.

      Tracy, I hear you! This was my first ride since the Tour of the Litchfield Hills. Far too long. Felt great to be back in the saddle!

    I had to bring our company to Bradley by 0700 this morning so couldn't run until I got home. It is strange running with the sun so high in the sky with people and cars all over the place. :) S... read more

      You are right, Tricky. I was about injured this time last year. :) I am feeling good about my chances of another PR at this point. Time will tell.

      @Tricky, yeah, that was a combination of Thursday's interval run and Sunday's long run. Sunday I went down to Groton Long Point along the water. It is a beautiful place to run. You should try it one day. :) @Natalie, mine was totally operator error as a result of a panicked transition to my old Garmin and my inability to find the charging dock to download my Thursday workout. I just forgot to reset it before I started on Sunday. Oops!
