Just when things were getting started from a group ride perspective, now they are over. Last night was our final Tuesday night ride out at Horse Creek as we now move indoors in anticipation of the changing weather. We were rewarded with a pretty fabulous night last night though. It was 26 deg out…amazing! There was no plan, but I rode hard and attempted to play catch up with the group in front of me. I pushed the uphills and flew down the other side of them. I was on my own for most of the ride until the very end, when LA caught up to me. We had a sprint war for the final few minutes to see if we could catch the folks in front of us. It was absolutely exhilarating. Average speed for the ride? 18.6 mph, or 30 km/h. My out and back speeds were so close that I know I’m really improving on my uphills. Before I flew a lot faster on the way back than the way out.
This morning’s run? Boring. I needed to get it done in the am, and truthfully, it is so dark in the mornings now that I didn’t want to run in my neighborhood. So I headed to the Y for 3 music filled miles on the treadmill. I’m all about music-less running outside, but on the treadmill I need the distraction!
