It was a wonderful weekend! The weather was nice and we spent lots of time outside.
Friday we ran after work up in Forest Park, then Saturday we had an awesome road ride with Emily. We explored a route that took us down south along the east side of the river then back up the west side and through the Terwilliger hills. It was so pretty and I felt really strong the whole time! I was slow on the hills, but I felt comfortable flying down the other sides. My max speed was 33 MPH. Weee! Today I ran but I really felt the bike miles in my legs. Ouch. I was just not feeling it at all, so I cut the run short.
5.0 miles/38:08/7:38 average pace
30.5 miles/2:13:10/13.7 MPH
River Road Loop
6.0 miles/53:00/8:50 average pace
The Diet is going good so far this week. I lost 3.5 lbs in the first week. I'm sure it will slow down and I want it to be permanent, so I know it won't be that much every week. Still, yay! I love that Daily Plate website. I went grocery shopping today and am excited for my week of healthy foods.
Here is my schedule for the week. It's my first week of Base Training!
Tuesday: :45 Run/Masters swim class
Wednesday: :60 Spin class+ :15 T-run/Weights

After the ride on Saturday we drove out to the coast. It was cold and and windy as usual but very beautiful.
Have a great week everyone! I'm going to try to update more frequently with all this training. Here are some pictures from Saturday:
