Morrisville-Corinth-Pea Ridge-Bennett-Lystra-Bennett-Mt Gilead Church

I tried a reverse of my normal route with Corinth earlier. That was good but the sun really got to me on the two climbs up Jack Bennett. I don't know if it's always been full sun or if they cleared some trees but it was bad. Overall, though, I felt good on this ride. Hot as anything though. I was a tad slower on the last leg from Wilsonville home but that's uphill and, as I mentioned, it was hot.

I decided to go to the outdoor pool to sit under the umbrellas and read a book. Then I decided that if I was going to the pool, I should probably actually swim so I had a bit of a recovery swim. Also, it was very hot so I wanted to cool off!


I took today off from work. I may do the same thing next Friday :-)  I plan to run later this morning and play it by ear from there. I have a few more days that Kevin do play with and I have found that taking at least one vacation day during peak training works well for me.  This is "hell week" for me and next week backs of a tad.  Two more big weekends.

This is my last Thursday with my current masters program. I will swim with them again on Tuesday. The program bites the dust at the end of the month. Pool politics. I think that I've found another program that will fit me pretty well.

Pea Ridge-Holland's Chapel-Davis with 2x20 minute intervals with 15 minutes between.

The humidity machine is back on. I was expecting it but still hoping that the lower humidity would stick around for the weekend. Ah well, August in North Carolina... What was more disturbing was that it was getting to be dusk when I finished this ride. Granted, there was some "faffing about" at Wilsonville where I stopped to get a water and use the rest room after my intervals but still! I'm not liking the noticeably shorter days!
