Saturday's workout was painting our room above the garage. It was long overdo. I actually had plenty of help and was able to go for my ride about 1:30 p.m. This was a 60k TT. I modified my route from last week's 30 mile TT to make sure I got the hills into the ride. My time came out to 2:00:47 - about 18.6 mph. Although I am pretty sure I can do this faster, this was a huge improvement over last week and no cramps. I had to go to the in-laws for an impromptu birthday celebration so WOD two was off. That was supposed to be 30 wall balls, 30 squats, 30 pushups, then 20 each then 10 each.
I had to get up early for this one. Too close to warrant renting a room and too far to sleep in.
I was feeling a little tight from the last few days. I warmed up with an easy two mile run and although that loosened me up a little I was still tight at the start. I ran the first mile at 7:22 pace, but must have slowed down considerably because the official results have me averaging 8:09 pace for the first run (three miles). I jumped on my bike and immediately started picking people off. Just to put things in perspective my overall result was 197 on the first run and 100 on the bike. I definately felt stronger on the bike yesterday, but this was my third day in a row of intense biking - it was to be expected. I finished the bike in 33:36 which comes out to about 19.65 mph. It was a little hilly and the roads were wet so I did not corner real aggressive. The hills really weren't that bad - rode better hills yesterday. My second transition was not good - for some reason I could not release the clasp on my helmet - I almost ran with it on. I actually felt good on the second run - ran 8:10 pace. I even passed a few people - that never used to happen. My overall result on the second run was 185 so I picked up twelve placed on the second run. I almost got nipped at the end and had to sprint to keep my place - that was fun. I finished 12th out of 23 in my age group (45-49). Finished 139th overall out of I don't know how many - I thought I heard the announcer say there was 400 starters - I'm too lazy to go back to the website to look it up.
Now - back to that missed workout. I could not end the weekend with a missed workout hanging over my head so I decided to do it in the early evening. I still don't have a ball so I used a 25 # plate as a substitute. Finished this workout in 7:17.
Tomorrow is a rest day. I think I need it.
