My body ate some lactic acid for lunch today! Another awesome workout where everything just went right. The sun was shining, temperature was perfect, and I just felt like going and going. :) Perfect day for a brick workout! And why not throw some hills in too? I was mentally prepared for 18km, but schedule said 14km, sooo I split the difference and did 40 minutes w/u on the bike + 80 mins run (14km).

I had the pleasure of running with GPS today! It's been almost a month now since by 305 bit the dust. Mark was working so I borrowed his- maybe running without a GPS has been good for me because I was cruising relative to my old 'easy' pace. There is a lot to be said about just listening to your body and going with how you FEEL rather than what a watch is beeping at you.

It feels sooo good to be back to a point where I am not rehabbing my knee but actually working on speed!! My legs felt really strong today, even when I hit the big hill at 7km. My body munched on that lactic acid and there was no puking! Not even close. Felt great.
