I felt like Forrest Gump on my run this morning - I got into the 'zone', no pain to speak of, felt like I coulda run a marathon. My heart rate was steady at 148, I listened to Podrunner 168 bpm and kept my pace steady. With the rolling terrain, I wasn't running fast, about 7 min/km I think. Did a full 7km in 48:19. I'm ok with that. So yeah, I'm happy!
Then, less than an hour later, Erik and I rode out to Winfield to pick up my new Garmin heart rate monitor, to replace the one that died. We rode out via North Glenmore, with a fair amount of climbing, and then came home via the highway, past the airport following our usual flattish route home. I was doing about a 28kmh avg on the first 60 km, but once I started the climb home, I slowed down to give my legs a rest. Ended up with a little over 26 kmh avg, for 65 km. Not bad considering it was following a long run. It was overcast and warm, threatening rain, and we did hit a few light showers but I think I got sunburned as well. Tomorrow I'll go for a swim, and if I ride tomorrow, it'll be easier I think.
Tonight we're off the see Indiana Jones. I know I'll love it, no matter what. :) I haven't been to see a movie in a couple of years.
And here's a couple of shots of my 10 year old son running relays at school last week. He's a pretty fast sprinter, came in 4th in the 100m I think, out of about 50 boys his age. The pics are closeups and a bit blurry but I like the action.
