Come Hell or High Water

...or rain, or snow, or wind, or whatever I was getting this workout done today and it was not going to be on the treadmill. Today's workout was a bike/run brick that involved hard, crunching gears biking, and fast, fast running. Today also brought about 40 degree temperatures so the bike started with multiple layers:



The workout was complicated and required a watch, a Garmin, and written instructions.



The run intervals started fast and ended faster. For me that was a 7:29, 7:11, and 6:41. Dang! I haven't run that fast in quite a while and it felt so natural and easy. Finally! I'm starting to feel like me again.

Here I am checking my watch to make sure I'm on target:



And here I am after I finished, looking like I might puke on Dave:



Things are starting to click and come together. Good thing. There are races on the horizon...

Awesome workout! It's so funny - I read a lot of blogs and forget who is local, etc. So I was reading this in my reader this morning and thought "Wow! that looks a lot like the track where my run club meets!" Only to realize it is indeed THE track where my run club meets. ha! Just thought it was funny!!
