Football and Friends… and Bikes!

8 Feb

The end of last week included a day off on Friday, an indoor track meet at IWU on Saturday and an 8 mile easy run on Sunday. For the Super Bowl I went to the Gieson’s with the Case’s and Bernico’s (all runners/triathletes) – there wasn’t much game watching 🙂 We did do lots of eating and several people rode their bikes in the basement. I have been thinking about getting a bike and a trainer so that I can get up in the mornings and ride before work instead of trying to fit in riding AND running after work. So of course I got to try all of the girls’ bikes out to see which brand fits my body type best – apparently this is uber confusing and I’m not going to even try to understand it! I have freakishly long legs for someone who’s 5’2″ so that greatly limits the bikes I can choose from. So far the bike that I’m 90% sure I’m going to get is a Cannondale Slice 5 105. Its looking like the winner thus far 🙂

2/5     Run 1.5 mi (8:00 pace) w/u
             Race  1 mi (6:16)

2/6     Run 8 mi easy (1:16:0)

2/7     Run 4 x 1200 @ 3k (6:20 pace) ; 60 sec recovery (3 miles total)
             Run 2.5 (9:20) w/u and c/d

Weekly Totals   Run – 29.5  ** *new weekly high mileage!!***
                                
Bike – 30 min

Next up is the Augustana Open in the Quad Cities where I will try to better my time in the mile 🙂

I will follow up with posts for both of the IWU track meets I participated in shortly.  I’ve been super busy!!
