Wednesday 3.0 miles/25:34/8:32 average pace

Zach and I went to the group run in Danville, at Forward Motion Sports and ran with Maritza and her boyfriend Matt. I haven't been to this weekly run since probably.... last September ish? Which is too bad, because it's really pretty fun. They have a mileage tracker and you win prizes for achieving certain milestones. Maritza and I have a goal of hitting 500.. which may take another year but we're committed. We want that fleece vest (or whatever it is)! It was awesome running in our little pack 'o four- getting caught up and pushing each other a little. Legs felt great.

Also yesterday, I picked up my bike at the bike shop and rode it home. I definitely need to get my bike-legs, but it was way fun. The best part is the bike came with a bell. Ha ha! I was riding along smiling like a fool dinging my little bell when no one was around. I'm an immense dork. I forgot how fun it was to ride a bike. I also forgot how uncomfortable those seats are, ouch! I needs me some bike shorts.

Then, to complete the trifecta, I got up and swam this morning. I did 15 laps = 750 meters in 20 minutes.

Tonight it's back to the gym for weights with Zach and tomorrow will be a rest day.

Unfortunately, the Sharks couldn't pull off the win over Detroit last night... but they play again Saturday and will come back hard and a little smarter I hope.

Running for prizes huh? :-) Now that's my kind of motivation. Hey!! I didn't get a bell with my bike!!

A bell? A freaking bell? Are you kidding me?

As far as the seat discomfort goes, you can replace the seat altogether if you want to. I always end up doing that on every bike I buy because stock seats always leave a lot to be desired.
