great Sunday Long Ride 24.79 mi 01:45 14.1mph pace

Dave came with me on this ride so it was great to have company. Biked from the apt to Ohio Street Beach. I had plans to try to swim 1/2 mile without stopping but the water was really, really choppy. I took a big mouthful of water on my first attempt to breathe. I gave up pretty quick. Not sure what to do if the Tri is that choppy.

Left my wetsuit in the lockers at the beach, then rode south for a while. Dave had never been past Grant Park on the path so it was fun to show him those views! Once we made it back to Ohio St. Beach to pick my wetsuit back up, I decided I wanted to go ahead and get in 25 miles (the distance of the Olympic Tri) to see how my legs handled it.

LOTS of headwind going North. Ave pace was 16MPH going south and 14.5 MPH going north.

    I swam Saturday and though it wasn't too choppy, I felt what you meant today... not sure how to handle it.
