Thats really odd. I had typed a whole lot more last night and none of it showed up.
As far as my toe goes, it really doesnt hurt too bad. I am going to at least take a couple days off of running. Once the pain is gone and the swelling is down, I will tape it up and try to run. It really didnt bother me at all last night on the bike.
So last night I took my bike out for its inaugural ride. I headed out to do a group ride I hadnt done in a while. The bike rode flawless. I felt so much faster. Climbing hills felt easier. There were two hard hills on last night's route. While I may have been around 10 mph going up the, I found that my legs were able to recover quickly and I was back up to speed. At times on my road bike I struggled getting back up to speed. I was surprised how fast I was able to go. If we had taken the route I was familiar with, I would have even gone faster. I had to slow or stop a few times since I did not know the route. Once things had opened up, I was pretty much able to stay in aero the whole time.
Total 16.66 miles 55:37 18 mph Avg HR 149
I dont think I have ever been that fast on such a hilly route. This really makes me optimistic about what I may be able to do on the bike at the S.C. 1/2
I cant wait to get the bike out on the comet for a 50-60 miler to see how she handles.
I may go out for another group ride on Wednesday if I can make it home on time. This one is a serious 30 mile training ride with alot of climbing.
