If it is Saturday, it must be brick day. After nearly a week off nursing a groin/quad strain (oww!) I finally got back out to train. I had planned to ride a quick Mountainville loop with BB and PB. When I got to PB’s house, he informed me that the ride was scheduled for Sunday… Doh! I felt like a real dumbass.

So I call up Hootus and make my way slowly over to his place. We got on the road right at 9:00am. As soon as we left I knew I was overdressed. I wore the heavier tights, long sleeved shirt, jersey & jacket, plus beanie and heavy gloves. After a couple of miles, the beanie had to go. When we got to Kinnelon around 18 miles in, the long sleeved shirt had to go.

When we passed back through Boonton we saw the temps had already hit 56. You can almost, almost, smell spring in the air. The ride came in just a hair under 40 miles, 2:22

Once we got back, I hopped in the car and sprinted over to Giralda Farms for my run. It’s been over 3 years since I ran my 1st 10k there, and I wasn’t sure about the route. So I just ran two loops around the campus, in my bib shorts and short-sleeved jersey, and still worked up a good sweat. SWEET!!

Ended up with a 54 min 5.97 mile run. The workout was only scheduled for a 1:15 bike and :45 run, but it felt really good to go longer, especially with a full week of rest under my belt.
