I started my big training week off strong with a 1:45 bike/0:30 run brick. Due to the craziness of Mondays (staff meeting at work, agility classes with both dogs, etc), there was only one option for getting the workout done. I was up eating breakfast and walking the dogs at 5am and out on the road by 5:30. It was the earliest and darkest I’ve ever been out riding and it felt great. Between riding and running, I did nearly as much mileage this morning as all last week!
And for those who might be wondering, I have completed week one of No Alcohol Before Boise. I had a few rough work days where I really wanted a beer with dinner but I decided it wasn’t truly worth it. So, yay me!
