We got La's party planned (I can't wait to execute it; I know she'll love it!) and had fun girl-chat time. I also ran 6 miles.
Saturday was an early day for the GSD ride with Lee, Anna, Parri, Shelly, and about 10 guys. It was a tough ride. I ended up with 40 miles and 2+ hours, and I would like to do this ride every week because it pushed me so hard. Total ride time: 2:15:20. 39.02 miles. 17.3 mph (42.0 max). 153 HR (186 max).
- Lap 1: 18:54, 5.13 mi, 16.3 mph, 125 HR
- Lap 2: 1:36:36, 28.89 mi, 18.1 mph, 163 HR
- Lap 3: 20:49, 5.0 mi, 14.4 mph, 138 HR
|Perkins at mile 14 was tough. Thankfully I started with Lee and could see her|
most of the time. When I couldn't see her, I pretended I could.
After the ride I made some pizza and breadsticks. Nothing better than being home by 10:30 on a Saturday and done with most of the hard work. The only thing that could've made this better would've been people to enjoy it with.

Church was amazing; Dave Ramsey spoke on the critical issue of why you do what you do. It definitely made me think: Why do I do what I do? Then it was off to the BFY for 60 minutes on the step mill (time to start crit training!) and some stretching. Ah, and good sweat.
