The past couple of days have given me some perfect weather for working out. After getting some rain here this week (and we haven't seen rain in forever), Tuesday afternoon and today were PERFECT for getting in workouts. The temps were in the mid 70s and the sun was out. What more could you ask for? Tuesday I ran, today I biked. Since I'm on limited time after I get home and before I have to take my daughter to work, I only got in 11.79 miles in 50:49 minutes (you don't get very fast when riding in the neighborhood and having to stop at all the stop signs). The important thing is that I got some bike time in. I can get more in once daylight savings happens. Besides, I have a half marathon this weekend, so I shouldn't do too much this week anyway.
The cycling season with Team in Training is off to a great start. We have somewhere between 40 and 50 cyclists. Some are doing a local event in May, but most are doing the America's Most Beautiful Ride in Tahoe. This past weekend was time to get the new riders use to their bikes and to get the intermediate riders use to riding in a pace line. The advanced riders took off for a ride. I hung around with the intermediate group and then did a couple of laps on the "autobahn" or South Mopac (which ever you want to call it). I ended up with about 25 miles. It's going to be a fun season.
