  1. RUN
    good 50° F and Sunny 5.01 mi 00:48 09:35 pace

    The weather today almost makes one forget about the snowy cold winter, almost. Beautiful day for a run and form felt good which made up for a lackluster attempt yesterday. Happy Thursday!

  2. RUN
    blah Short run 1.48 mi 00:14:43 09:56 pace

      It's all good James. Good to live to fight another day and be smart today. You know where you were and that running at all is a big step foward, so good idea to listen to the bod. The heavy work on your new trainer prob did add to you being drained, you're right...rest up!

      @Vern, I was thinking the exact same thing this morning -- but, I feel like if I don't run at least 3 miles that it's really not a run at all. Go figure.

      I have an old hybrid with standard peddles, so didn't learn 1 and 4, but can definitely relate to 2 and 3. Although I didn't find too many protected areas, and wind always seemed to be in my face.

      Great cycling points James ...The wind is always tough ...Let me also suggest a cell phone when riding (probably do so anyway). Always makes me feel a little more secure ... Must have been a tad chill eh?

      Good first lessons, James! Running into a headwind is tough, but to me wind is a bigger factor cycling than running. I don't have clip pedals, but can well imagine the discomfort of stopping while clipped in! :)

      for some reason my butt can't take the trainer nearly as long as being out doors, which is so odd considering it's the same dang seat. I thinkt it's because out doors you have a tendancy to shift around. I am impressed you did an hour your first time on. I always put a fan in front of me so it keeps the sweat down a bit.

      Leslie makes an interesting point. I do get used to my saddle, but I have to confess I can't stand the trainer. It would improve my technique tremendously, but I can't bring myself to do the workouts, so good for you! Love hearing that you're enjoying it! :)

      oooh make sure to change out your back tire quick release skewer with the one that came with the trainer. I made the mistake of keeping original one that came with the bike.... eventually it wore down and no longer fit the trainer attachment so well and I did a not so graceful and slightly painful "dismount".

      That sounds like a pleasant run James! I'm not likely to go "all in" in the biking realm, even though I certainly see the benefits of the cross training. Too much gadgetry for me, but I say go for it...good for you! Good luck mastering all the equipment and tricks of the trade!
