8.28 miles

Tempo run yesterday.  I cut it short because I was being lazy.  I started off with what I thought was slow and really picked up the pace when I hit the Queensboro bridge.  1:05:17 for 8.28 miles which is approximately 7:51 per mile.
Today is day 2 of moustache growing.  Exciting!

It's funny how human's don't get much credit for being precise.  Well, I guess when people think of precise, they imagine very little if any variation.  But, my damned track workout what very precise by my standards.  So my track workout yesterday was as follows:
1.2 mile warmup
800 - 3:20
800 - 3:19
800 - 3:18
800 - 3:15
800 - 3:28 (paid for the 3:15)
800 - 3:21
800 - 3:18
800 - 3:16
1.2 mile cool down.
I was pretty happy about this since my track workout last week were all just under 3:30.  So I guess I am getting faster.
Monday I did 45:00 on the bike at a whopping 16 mph.
Sunday I did a wonderful 4.5 miles at 9:16 per mile
Saturday I managed to do 46 miles on the bike which I am excited about
The ride didn't hurt and my legs were feeling quite fresh after.  Almost fresh enough to run 13.1 miles after.  Happy training everyone.  Hotel and flight booked and we're excited to get out to San Diego.
And I'm growing a moustache.

The Triathlon Bike

So with some future considerations of triathlons in my future, I managed to go home and grab my tri bike.  Yes, a tri bike and a road bike in a small Astoria apartment may be a bit excesssive, but I love it.

I've ridden the Felt for the last 2 days today doing 45 minutes averaging 16.5 mph.  It feels pretty decent.  

Hope everybody's training is going well.  Bajojo.
