Hubby is out of town, a little good and a little bad. It is nice not having to rush home so he can get off to work and kids are off school, so I don't have to worry about them; however, I worry about my kids being home alone while I'm away biking and running. If something happened to me they'd be orphans! I worry a lot.
QoH (queen of the Hill) bike ride early this morning. I forget the "feels 10 degrees cooler on the bike" rule sometimes. I was cold. But, I got through it! Wasn't too bad once the sun came up. Did this one faster than I have in times past which feels good. I was at 16.8 mph. I really wanted to break 17, but we took a different way home and I couldn't power down the hill like I normally do, and I forgot to stop my watch a couple times on re-groups. Oh well, gives me something to shoot for next time! 21.3 miles up and over Camp Williams.
Came home and my feet were still numb and cold! Changed into running shoes and took off for an 8 mile loop. I'd decided to do the Pumpkin run route from my house, which is basically the trails in Herriman, HOMM ran them as well. (as a side note, someday I want to run the HOMM course - mile 16 is at my house, so I want to follow the signs weaving through all the trails to figure it out!) My feet were finally 95% back to normal when I stopped at the turn around for a drink...mile 4! It was cold.
Nice decent downhill to start (with a few rollers thrown in for good measure) and then a good uphill push home, and I added the cove loop on as well to push past 8 and ended up at 8.5 exactly with a nice downhill finish, excellent.
AP: 8:05 splits: 8:31, 7:40, 8:01, 7:43, 8:13, 8:41, 8:20, 7:33, 7:57 (last .5) I'm quite impressed with myself that 8:40 was my slowest mile, I really thought I'd be more in the 9's!
I might take the kids swimming this afternoon and do a few laps myself...we shall see.
