There are FIVE OF US heading to the first local duathlon this weekend. Steph, Borsch, Matt, Pharmie, and I are doing the Winter BeGone Duathlon down by Rochester MN on Sunday. I’ve been TRYING to hit the bike a few more times since IM NOLA 70.3 to get ready.
On Friday, I did a hilly course. It was a 22.8 mile ride that had a decent amount of hills, and it took me all over St. Paul, along the Mighty Mississippi, and into the ‘burbs:
Tonight (Tuesday), I went for a fast, hard ride on a pretty flat course. But it was pretty windy. I went out down the Greenway Trail and back for a total of 21.68 miles:
Yeah, like you can read THAT. Sorry.
So, all that being said, I rode those last 2 rides on Big Rhonda, not Goldilocks. These past 2 rides may be my last 2 on Big Rhonda because we’ve found a buyer! So I snapped a photo to remember her by:
@ 6.2 miles: 18.42 mph ave overall
@ 10.84 miles (turn-around): 18.45 mph
@ 15.48 miles: 18.97 mph overall
@ 21.68 miles (finish): 19.38 mph
Good. Well, not bad.
Tomorrow, I have 13 hour day of work, so there's no workout. Thursday, I'll go for a hard 6-8 mile run. Friday, I'll swim a bit. Then it's easy sailing until the race on Sunday! We'll see what happens this weekend at Winter BeGone!!
