Woke up to a pillow covered in blood and a sore throat. I had pretty bad indigestion during the night and kept waking up to pee and eat tums. I think, I coughed hard at some point and damaged a capillary. At least I hope that's all it is.
I got the bike fixed up at Incycle Pasadena where I decided to replace my well worn tires.
I got a set of Continental Grand Prix. Not the more high end 4000s versions but a good economical set.
I gave them a quick test spin around the house and boy could I tell a difference in the quality of the ride! I look forward to riding later this week.
Tonight I had a heck of a run for my workout. Here it is:
One hour and forty minute run with: 20' warm up, 20' Z2 HR, 8x1' at Z4 running HR with 1' Z2 running HR in between.
As soon as I got out of the car, I saw the whole family of deer standing nearby and looking at me. As I headed out, they followed along keeping the fence and bushes between us as usual. I ended up doing almost seven miles. Those one minute z4 intervals were tough, but I think I did pretty well. I only struggled holding the tempo on the last interval.
When I got back at the end of the run, the deer were waiting for me! I could only get the one picture though there were about six out there.
As I was running out there, I had that wonderful feeling of being able to just take off, under my own power, and go anywhere I wanted. It is an incredible liberating feeling! Until tomorrow my friends.
