Mojo is gone. My legs still feel heavy and getting up in the morning is less and less appealing every day. Even Saturday wanting to do my lake run SO bad, I contemplated just bagging it and sleeping in multiple times. I need to find a way to take a break...without taking a break.
I did the bike ride with the Triple Threats this morning (Nancy, you should come sometime! we meet at Herriman HS at 6AM). I rode down to the school, because I figured I could get down there in about as much time as it would take to load up the bike, drive the 3 miles, unload the bike and get ready. Good climb up Rose Canyon - you can see the car that pulled off the road and started the fire!! Crazy! I'm honestly impressed with the small burn area, it could've been SO much worse, but it was contained and stopped quickly.
At the top a couple girls had stopped to fix a bike and the ones with me weren't going to do the Bacchus loop on the way home. So, I rode back down about a mile, caught the girls and rode back up with them. I got the 3 tough hills twice! At the top there was a group of guys and turns out a few of them were from the BBK's. Fun little 'run into'. Down the canyon, then we'd decided to do the loop, so I waited for the ladies, and we turned left onto Bacchus. Then at the top (7300W) I waited again...for 10 minutes! No ladies. I finally figured they must've turned around thinking they didn't have time. So, I busted through the last little bit of the hill, and enjoyed the downhill back to the HS...and then home.
Once at home, I asked my daughter if she wanted to go for a bike/run to practice for her tri on Saturday. She agreed. I had her do 3 loops around the school (3 miles) while I ran a mile with Lucy and the jogging stroller. Then we met back at home and she ran a mile with me. I headed out with the stroller for one last mile, but when I got back I told my baby "time to go inside" he said, "no, again" and pointed down the street. Man, I created a monster in that kid, he'd have had me run 20 miles if it was up to him. So, I did one more to make it 4.
Somewhere after the first 300yds of my 3rd mile my garmin lost satellites...what?!?! so, I don't have the last 2 miles so I have no idea how fast I was going. Whatever, just a good shake out.
