Another wonderful week completed. Mileage is holding steady but not as much as I would like to have under my belt. My goal is to complete 1500 miles this year. Too much going on I guess, but I’m still going to try to reach that mile mark goal for the year, a daunting task with all the little pains that seem to keep cropping up. One thing for sure is I push through the pain. Right or wrong I continue. It’s just my nature and for the most part I guess there really is no use in explaining. I know when the body isn’t a 100% it’s good to slow down, but I swear if I couldn’t bike or run I’d probably crawl. I accept that’s how I am…don’t judge!:)
Weather was good for running this week. I put some time in at the track and completed a run around the hood for a total of 6.48 running miles. Slow but was able to complete without too much strain.
Saturday was a great day and I decided to get in some cycling. I walked out of the house in a frustrated mood, so needless to say I was off my game. I have pedals with the straps, no I haven’t graduated to snap in pedals yet. As I made my way to the bike trail I have to stop at one of the busier streets. Like I said off my game, I stopped too short ~ ok I need to pay attention. There’s a car behind me and I can just sense he’s (yes it was a he and I didn’t even have to look) irritated with me waiting for me to cross the street. I finally can cross and for some reason I can get my feet in the stirrups for the pedals. My foot slips and I almost fall off the bike. Sooooo, how many cool points is that? I finally get across the street, the driver’s pissed ~ I’m pissed, I was just ready to get off the road. When I finally got to the trail there was a lot of people biking and my mood slowly began to change for the better. I love riding on the trail because I can listen to my iPod. Music and speed are a great combination. I usually have some blood pumping songs but for some reason I included the Flower Duet. Such a lovely song. Greatful to have completed 24.29 miles this week ~ Happy Miles to You.
