First Brick!

Sunday: I had a lovely brunch with mom, Jason, my brother John, and my nephew Atticus. After the food settled a bit, I went out to Umstead Park. I ran for an hour, changed shoes, then I biked for 50 minutes. I have never done a long combination workout before. My foot can no longer take the pounding of a two hour run, so this seems like an excellent way to get LSD (long slow distance) without hurting myself. I am not training for anything longer than a 10k this year anyway.

Friday and Saturday

Friday: walked around downtown - First Friday!
Saturday: 5 miles at Lake Johnson - felt ok - got tired at the end - found my tempo pace
I know tempo pace by feel, but I have no clue what that pace actually is (by the numbers).

It is dry out there and the dirt is flying. I am covered in schmutz from head to toe.
