Lunch: 4.2 miles extremely slow, averaged 10:57. HR 124.

Might be the slowest two miles I have run since I started running. Knew I needed to take it easy after yesterday's workout plus riding in the afternoon, which was fairly short but also knew I was riding with the group this afternoon.

PM: 37.3-mile ride. HR 149.

Had a blast with the group. Hung back a bit as I have never ridden with a group and only have 100 miles on a bike of this type and it has been a good number of years since I have ridden of any type. Got more comfortable as I went along. Learning etiquette and bike skills and so forth. A little anxious and nervous at first, but then settled in and chatted with some guys. Felt like I could have picked it up a good deal at the in the second half, but there will be time for that. Right at 17 MPH for mostly dirt/gravel roads with a fair amount of climbing (hills are so hard on a bike!). Had beers and a light bite after. Good times. Talked poor Megan's ear off when I got home as I was pleasantly energized from the ride. I will be tired tomorrow.

Night: Various PT stetching and exercises.
