Overall an enjoyable ride... except for the lack of coordinated traffic control at the lights. Truly, if I wasn't more respectable I would have had a few words for those cops. I'm so glad they were sooooo supportive *big-ass-eye-roll*
Here's how the day ended up
High Speed: 28 mph
Average HR 141
Calories burned: 3,800+
Doing the spin class and 5K the day before the ride I felt wiped last night... my legs felt like lead weights. I pulled my back last night, but it feels much better today (thankfully). No training today, Monday.
This week will be tough -- Cass and I are headed to NJ on Thursday through Monday. All I can really do there is Run, which I guess is something. I will swim both Tuesday and Wednesday this week -- gotta practice breathing... it really screws with my pace/rhythm; I just don't feel smooth. I was better off holding my breath. LOL I'll get it though.
And now for some race pix...
The Start line
Just some scenery
Houston looks kinda nice from here
End of ride... *E* and I
