I need to get in the pool today, but I'm just not sure that's going to happen.
I did my 45 minute bike ride this morning. Beautiful morning, though it got pretty warm by 8:00 when I was finishing up. It wasn't to be an incredibly difficult ride - if I had a trainer that would have been preferable, just for consistency - but it was to be a start slow with a ramp up to "middle effort" with intervals of light effort, and then a cool down the last 7-10 minutes. That's easy to do on a trainer - hard to do on the hills of South Carolina.
So, I had no consistency at all in my effort, but it wasn't a bad workout. Just a little "Blah."
Plus, I stopped three times to work on my rear brake. I just replaced the pads, and for some reason the left pad was rubbing off and on after the first 5-10 minutes or so. Riding up and down hills is hard enough without having to pedal through intermittent soft braking. So that slowed me down quite a big - I did finally get the rubbing stopped, but something still isn't right when I brake. I may need different pads than I got...I need to get to the bike shop in Greenville next time I'm there.
We're off to Savannah for the weekend - Hilary's birthday today, our anniversary tomorrow. And we're running a 5k there tomorrow morning - first actual race for me since high school cross country!
