Super awesome long ride through the farm country west of Portland. We rode through fields and forests and there were some fun rolling hills. I felt really good and was having a blast. We kept a good speed going and didn't stop much. I got really tired toward the end and was out of water, but we made it in. It was 85 degrees by the time we finished at like 1:30 pm. We spent the rest of the day chillin and then went went out to dinner in the neighborhood. I had oysters and avocado rolls and halibut and two Grey Goose martinis. It was a wonderful day. :)

We got up and ran early to avoid the heat. It was beautiful morning and there were tons of runners. Sometimes I think everyone in this town runs. My legs were definitely fatigued but by keeping a slower pace I was able to run the whole thing feeling pretty good. Probably could have drank more water. After the run we went up to a cooking class at Sur La Table. It was so fun! We made a fruit tart.
total training time for week one of the Base phase ...

+ weight training 1:30 total for the week ish?
My new healthy eating habits are a success... I'm trying now to figure out how to have more variety in my meals, especially dinners. All my recipes involve piles of cheese and so forth. This week I got potatoes and squash and feta cheese and lots of other good stuff. I still ate bagels this weekend and I had some cookies my neighbor made, but I think that's fine. I sampled the desserts at the class today too of course. I've been drinking way less (the martinis were the exception) and I think that is making a big difference. Anyway, I lost another couple of pounds this week and feel great.
My schedule for next week is a lot like the last. The times are a little shorter on a couple of the runs/rides which I guess is nice.
