The question is: will this make me faster?

Fairly solid ride today. I wasn't going too hard, but I did have my eye on the 21 MPH mark, so I hit that easily enough. Normally, this would have only earned a 3 rating, but I gave myself a 4 just for getting out and riding, as I was feeling a lack of motivation today.

I almost ran into some idiot on a lawn tractor who was backing into the street without looking. I could see it coming, and I was able to stop in time. It figures though, he was about 65 years old and about 280 pounds, so he probably didn't have the first idea about "cardio."

I think I might be able to use the lack of running as an opportunity to do more biking. Maybe I can ride 4-5 times a week now, now that I don't have to concern myself with saving days for running. 4-5 rides, plus 2-3 swims will be just as good as any other regimen I've done.

That's it. I'm done. It shouldn't be painful to run, and I just can't force myself to do it anymore. I can't run hard, and even the slow running hurts every step of the way. Well, literally every other step.

No more races for me until I get my knee figured out. I mean, I'm down to running 3 miles a week, and I can't even keep that up. I'll still keep up with the biking and swimming. I'm going to get another appointment with ortho, and hopefully we can really get a definitive answer.

I was going to swim today, but lack of motivation and the long drive to the Bell Center stopped me.

Sport
  • Basketball

This was not ideal conditions for basketball as it was about 85 degrees and it must have been 100% humidity. We were drenched when we were done. I didn't play particularly well either. It was still fun, though.

Easy ride in the morning. I even wore a loose fitting shirt to remind myself to take it easy today. Of course, in the last few miles, I didn't listen to myself, as I pushed hard to get to a 20 average. But that's OK, I was only riding hard for maybe 10 minutes or so. Nice morning for a ride.

Still deciding whether I'm going to press on this year or call it a season. It would kind of suck to be done after just 2 races.

One more day off, and then I'll get back at it tommorrow.
