ORN: 50 minutes, mountain bike.
Again, a reminder, that mountain bike refers only to WHICH bike. In this case a Gary Fisher that I bought to train for an adventure race I did a few years back. It's actually a great bike, much better than I am capable of riding.
I'm trying to balance my need to recover with my eagerness to train. It's not easy. I want to make this a big mileage week, since I started with the half marathon on Sunday. But, I can't make it a big mileage week because I started with a half marathon on Sunday. See the problem?
Races are great training. But they aren't training, they're racing. No matter how much I try to tell myself that Sunday was just a training run, it wasn't. It was a race. The pace, the time, the people, the atmosphere was that of a RACE, not a training run. And I have to recover from races.
Waddle on, friends.
