You know those days when you think back to the morning and it seems like it was days ago? That was today for me.This morning the puppers woke me up at the ridiculous hour of 5:45am. Since I had plans to bike with my dad while he completed his 13 miler (I did mine yesterday) at 7:30 I decided to put on a pot of coffee and stay up. What ever happened to sleeping in??
The bike ride went well…I really should cross train more! It was a beautiful morning for a ride. My dad did his 13 miles with an average pace of 8:55 and he basically did the same course I did yesterday with a few minor adjustments. I rode with him but walked up the 2 major hills since we are racing tomorrow and I didn’t want to be sore. So far I feel fine although my butt is a little sore because its not used to the bike seat!
Dan and I attended a family picnic of his but left early because he wanted to watch the (disappointing) USA game. I fell asleep on the couch, even with all of his screaming! I think these early mornings and the start of marathon training caught up to me! I usually feel guilty napping on such a beautiful day but my body needed it. I have to get up even earlier tomorrow for the race so we are lying low tonight
