Whew, it's hot!!!

It's really hot here today. My little temp thingy says 84 F but there's no real wind so it feels much hotter.

Overall a good weekend. Yesterday was a long bike ride and I ended up doing 22.7 miles in 1:57.
I was going slow (as you can tell) and just enjoying the riding. I also stopped at the bike shop. I have some really old Look pedals and needed to know if I could still get cleats for them. Yes. I also needed to know what size bike shoe I wear. 39. So I came home hopped on the internet and ordered myself a pair of bike shoes. Now, they are nothing fancy, no big names or anything. I've never used them and quite frankly they scare the piss out of me, but I decided it's time to step up and be a grown up biker. So as soon as I get them I'll go get the cleats and attempt to kill myself ride.

On other news, today was my run and oh bubbie it was hot. I left at 7:00 and it was already 79 F. Now that doesn't sound all that hot, but where I was running is between 2 mountains and there is no air flow. So it was bloody hot. I ended up doing 5 miles in 1:20. It wasn't as bad as it sounds. The first half was up hill and the second half I was dying. I did a lot of walking on the way back because of the heat.

Tomorrow the real work begins. I've spent most of this month building a base and now it's time to start adding drills. I'm going to run intervals on Weds. and bike hills on Thurs. I have some great swimming drills and it's time to get to serious work.

Nancy totally rocked Eagleman, way to go!!!! Ellie took on the Hatfields and McCoys, way to go Ellie!!! It was a buys weekend for racing. Congrats to all who participated.

 So I mentioned that I had gotten some of the cups I ordered. They are Stanley dupes and have gold plating under the powder coating, so when...
