2. It has gotten HOT here.... well, more like every other day is hot. What ever happened to the gradual warm up of Spring into Summer? On Tuesday afternoon, I attempted another Brick. My goal was to do an easy bike ride for 1:30 and then run for 30. I did 23 miles in 1:32, and ran 3.5 in 28:45. I was hot on the bike ride, but averaging around 15 mph, it doesn't feel as hot. The run was SUPER HOT, like I thought it was over 100 degrees. I took a 25 minute cold shower and was still sweating 30 minutes later. Don't worry, I learned my lesson about hydration.... I did hydrate!
3. Okay, I have been told I'm competitive.... actually TG said, "hypercompetitive" and I need you all to settle this debate. Is it considered "hypercompetitive" that I try to complete the workouts that he does or that I get "upset" with myself that I cannot run or bike as fast as he can? Not upset in that I throw a tantrum, more like a little down on myself. I think it is a healthy competition. I think he has pushed me to be faster, go longer, not give-up so easily. If he gets an extra workout in, I try to squeeze on in too! I would LOVE to be as fast as he is.... but I think he believes I am trying to "out do" him, which really is impossible! Thoughts? Isn't Imitation the biggest form of flattery?
Also, how do you solve your "debates" with your running partners? A race? LOL!
