Sluggish. Picked it up a good deal at the end into the 6:40 range, which was a bit out of the zone.

PM: 4 miles, averaged 9:53. HR 132.

Ran with Megan

10 x 3' w/ 30" Recoveries

Warmed up 2 miles with strides on a beautiful morning with full sunshine. This was a very tough workout even though the overall paces weren't fast or much faster than parts of my tempo last weekend, but the effort was tough and I really had to focus, particularly on the last 3. Cooled down 2 miles.

Noon: 4.6 miles, averaged 9:52. HR 145.

PM: 42' ride. HR 129.

Finally got my bike in. It was a beautiful day, so I went out for a short break in ride. I've never use clipless pedals, so I am learning but getting it. Other than testing the bike, I have never been on a drop bar bike (other than my sister's old ten speed, which was cut short when I smashed my jewels). It was a great day for weather and it felt very freeing to be out on the bike. I loved bikes growing up. It brought me a lot of joy in my life. Not sure why I got away from it.

Ran on Spencer Park trails to look for cadence sensor I lost off my bike yesterday. No luck. Megan and I are headed to the western part of the state (Holland/Saugatuck area).
