Bike Training: 12mi

My post on Tuesday stated that I’d be doing a run on Wednesday evening. Well, I ended up doing some resistance/strength training that day, rather than go out on a shod run.

I did end up buying minimalist shoes, though! I’ll talk more about that in a separate post, since I really want to address my bike ride in this one. 🙂

So, the bike ride: another easy workout, though, I peppered it a bit with some more challenging spinning (meaning, not spinning at a leisurely pace). I tend to go “slower” since my bike rides are also part-coaching my sis to become adept at riding her bike. Plus, she’s got a mountain bike (which is waaay heavier than the road bike I’m using) so I’m really trying to slow down to match her speed.

One thing I wanted to note, as well was the weather — it was rather cold and windy (even with the head-winds!) that I thought that I’d end up falling ill after the ride. I ended up taking some much needed rest to make sure that I wouldn’t get a cold or summat (I’m really careful because I haven’t gotten sick in over a year and a half! *knocks on wood*)

Tomorrow, despite being on holiday, I plan to do at least 30 minutes on the treadmill (or rather, dreadmill) and perhaps some resistance training and a quick swim in the hotel pool… Won’t really make up for the fact that I need to do 13 miles tomorroz, but some activity is better than nothing, right?

Happy LABOR DAY!
