Thursdays I typically do a shorter run and ride in the evenings, so I didn’t even worry about what time I went to bed after the game. That was a good plan because I woke up at 7a exhausted, I can’t imagine even an hour earlier!
I packed my usual breakfast – Chobani Peach Greek Yogurt with 1/2 cup of Fiber One, and snacks – a Banana and a Plum (and usually trail mix but I’m out), but no lunch, again. I need to get back to bringing my lunch and not running out to grab something. Lately Panera has been my go to place for a Tuna sandwich. Not totally unhealthy, but also not a lot of green there either.
When I got home after work, I rallied for my 3 mile run and 17 mile ride. Not a large amount of mileage, but it’s getting darker earlier and it makes me nervous being on the bike at dusk. I filled up my water bottles and pumped my tires and ran a quick 3 miles a little under a 9 min pace. Once I got home I put on my bike shoes, helmet and sunglasses and was off for the ride. Oh yeah, and I slathered my arms, back and face with sunblock before heading out for the run, I don’t want a repeat of Sunday 🙂 As soon as I started riding I realized my cadence meter wasn’t working…grr. Last Sunday during the first part of the ride all it was displaying was mph but during the second half, after fidgiting with it, all it displayed was cadence. I was hoping it would reset for my next ride, but I thought wrong. I still was wearing my Garmin, so I could track mileage and mph, but I really missed being able to see cadence and mph.
I can’t find the instructions it came with, they were so confusing and hard to understand, I think for once I threw them away (I usually am pretty good about saving everything), so if I can’t figure it out by tomorrow I’ll have to head to REI for their help. No way am I riding again this Saturday or my upcoming race on Sunday without it working!!
Off to bed – I have to be up early to get my long run in before work because I won’t be able to get it done on Sunday since I’ll be doing my first Olympic tri!
