P90X shoulders/arms D U N done...off to see the second Hunger games w/DD in a bit...
12 mile run this morning. Had a little scare about 3 miles in. I'm running along and suddenly hear gunshots. Now, remember, I live in a rural area, so I was in the middle of nowhere. I look out into the field where the noise came from and 2 guys were out hunting pheasant. I made some noise and waved my hands in the air so they'd see me and not fire again. I went on my way, and since I was doing an out and back, made sure that I was really looking for them on the way back. I saw them again with about 2.5 miles to go. They were about 200yds across the field, so I yelled "hey" and then waved my arms in the air again. They waved back, and slung their guns over their shoulders until I went by. This was the first time in 10 years that anything like this has happened, which is surprising, since I generally run the same areas all the time, with my direction being determined by which way the wind is coming from. Oh well, all is good.
Have a great day!!
Balmy 50 mile ride this morning, with three other masochists. It was about 10F at the start ... feet never seemed to get warm until a good, soaking hot shower several hours later. Saw a helicopter hovering over a field. Strange. Low 15's avg.
I was worried about my run today. 3 miles easy and then 2 miles 20 seconds faster than my easy long run last week. I was worried because I haven't run 5 miles in like two months. Well, guess what? I rocked it. Took it easy on the first three (stayed within 10 seconds of each mile and well in my easy run pace) and then nailed my final 2 miles running 40 seconds faster than my run last week. I was smiling and have been all day!!!
Geo - that's cooold. Nice to have a company.
TT - way to go!
Raced at Detroit CX invitational in Detroit near "8Mile Rd"), organized by DH's club. The Only CX race this year. 45-min race (I rode for 55min) on a hard course featuring velodrome, tequila short cut, snow pile, etc. got lapped by two females.... My excuse was the heavy Mtb and tequila I didn't meant to swallow on all 5 laps. Always a great fun and lots of beer afterwards .
2000m swim and playing in the pool w/ DS2 at the local YMCA. Set's of 200, nothing creative
