Training - 21 Days Until LHF Race

Jumped on the bike early this morning to get another 25 mile bike ride in before the weather turns for the worse and forces my workouts to be inside.

I headed out a little before 8 waiting for the sun to rise. I met up with Chad at his house and we took off for the bike path. It was cold out in the beginning. My bald head was frozen and I think my brain had a permafrost on it. As we continued to ride we lost feeling in our toes and fingers.

We made good time considering we are far from bike shape and it took some time for my body to warm up. I purchased some bike shorts to help with the seat area, but I was still a little sore from the ride last week.

It was nice to have someone to ride with and shoot the breeze with while riding. As the sun continued to shine it was pretty nice on the ride back. We had the wind working with us and we finished up nice and strong. I continued riding home from his house to wrap up my 25 mile ride. My legs were tired so I was not going as fast as would have liked.

It was a great start to the weekend. Hope to get out for a nice run tomorrow. Enjoy the weekend.

25 miles in 1:38 for  3:56 pace.
