probably because of all the food I ate yesterday. I ate 4 English muffing, couple apples (like 5), 2 cheese bagels, 2 Luna bars, 2 bowls of cereal with milk and uncountable number of Reese's peanut butter pieces so I was filled with carbs.
Plus I spent the whole day on my butt working on computer. (I wanted to do everything at the same time and ended up not finishing anything)
Anyway, I went for a bike ride just past 7:30am. Weather was perfect. I wanted to do the same route I did 2 weeks ago and take it very slowly and take pictures:
This is me and couple pictures I took :)
I actually took the road closest to the ocean so I can see nice houses so it was little bit longer than last time but I rode faster overall. Because of those carbs and frequent stop to take pictures I guess. I caught up to one guy at a stop light at around mile 40 and told to myself to stay with him. And I stayed for next 8 miles or so and we were moving fast.
It was a very enjoyable ride. Even with hills, it felt great. I am pretty fast at uphills, I pass people and then they pass me on flat :(
I was not as trashed as last time so I decided to run immediately afterwards. 9 miles. My longest run in a while!!!!! And it felt great. I wanted to keep a faster pace and started out little too fast because it was slight downhill but slowed down on my way back for average 7:18 pace. Great. I had a small crisis from 5.5-6.5 miles but other than that it felt pretty easy and good.
Then I watched Ironman Hawai live broadcast. I only saw the marathon but the race was awesome! Both men and women. Those people are unbelievable!
