Maybe not a good choice

At the beach? Well, go find a long, steep, sandy hill and do hill repeats right? I got in 15 solid minutes of hill climbs...and then I realize that "rocks" I was feeling under my toes was actually blisters from the hot sand, that had torn open and had filled with sand. OUCH!!! THen walking into the ocean to clean thme out, DOUBLE OUCH!!! So I'll be hobbling around for the next few days...

Back in the saddle

Dear cycling gods, forgive me it's been waaay too long since I've put wheels on the road!!!

I knocked the dust of my Cervelo S5 (no really, it's been hanging up for so long I had to wipe dust off it. It killed me to realize that) and took it out. A gorgeous New England day, perfect for a 25 miler. I forgot how many hills are around here but that S5 made them all easy. Not to mention the hip felt GREAT even standing up, out of the saddle and stomping the pedals. And...I'm so happy to get a 3rd day in a row of training!

Train smarter...

Well, my planned 6mi run turned into a 4 miler. I didn't realize my old route around WPI was that hilly but toss in little to no shade or wind on a wicked hot day and I got gassed. Rather than push it, I bailed out at the halfway point. I just couldn't channel my inner Gompei or jack rabbit today. But, that cute lil guy kept me company as I walked off the run.

Something new

It's been a while since I've hit the trail but it was a gorgeous day and that scenery was awesome. Might not have been the right shoes for the job...but they did the trick!
