Yes I am stealing this title from Colin, and I am sure others. Back to the title, yes I need to give myself a note.
Kim got finished with her workout and it was time for me to go. It was 6pm and beautiful outside. Didn't know if I wanted to ride or run. I decided on the ride. Plan was to go about 25 miles, a good ride for me. Well off I went and about one mile I realized I had no water with me. So I decided I would do a 13 mile loop come home get some water and do a bike/run brick.
Ride was good, was going back in forth with this one guy (young 20's) I would go ahead and he would catch me and pass me. Then I would speed up and pass him. Made the ride go by. Did I mention he was on a mountain bike? And that he was wearing jean shorts with regular pedals? I didn't think so. I even got the bike up to 24.8 mph (yes that is good for me).The last time I passed him I said I couldn't image how fast you would be on a road bike. He laughed.
Got home jumped off the bike, came inside changed shoes, gave Kim a kiss, and off I went. Transition was about 2 minutes. Didn't take long for me to realize I forgot to get a drink. I am an idiot. To be honest I had a great run. A better run then I had at my 5K last weekend. Really felt good.
Here were my splits (for the run).
8:41 (pace for .25 miles)
Oh the water when I got home was great.
