AM: 48-mile ride. HR 139.

Did my first D-Ride ("Detroit Ride") with the guys as one of them is leaving for 6 months to work in China. The ride starts from the other bike shop location in Birmingham (a wealthy suburb north of Detroit) and goes through some of the other suburbs and into Downtown Detroit. They sometimes do Belle Isle, but it is closed due to flooding. I had to get up early for this one, but I am glad I did it as it was a blast and a great way to see the city.

I would like to do more of these, but I will have to do long runs on Friday or it will likely eat too much into recovery as some portions guys would take off and I had to grind to keep up (though I did much better in the second half I was able to chase some of the guys who were breaking away who were on road bike. Admittedly, they could have dropped me had it come down to it, but my strength this year has made amazing improvements). Longest road ride so far. Definitely one to do in a group and not solo.

PM: 4 miles with Megan, averaged 9:53. HR 128.

Beautiful out. Summer is half over. Been great so so far. I am very fortunate to be able to do what I do. Megan and I are headed to Maine for a week on Tuesday.
