The crew is from St. Louis, MO so yesterday we took them up Spencer Butte here in Eugene! It was really cool to see the looks on the kid's faces as we reached the top! Beautiful hike on a perfectly sunny day! Sometimes I forget that I live in such a gorJESUS place... and it takes someone visiting to remind me!
In addition to all the overwhelming fun... training continues. Although I'm in a bit of a mental/physical slump... I'm still getting out there and putting in the time and effort. I just don't know that I'm going to expect a TON of speed in this race up the in gorge. I'm simply not going to worry about it!
Yesterday's workout out? BRICK! Attacked some hills in the heat during the bike and the run... good stuff. My legs felt pretty sluggish after the hike up the Butte earlier that morning... but in the end it was a fairly decent workout... here's the stats:
- Total Time Bike: 1 hour
- Total Distance: 18.9 miles
- Avg Speed: 18 and change
- Avg HR: 146
- Total Time Run: 1/2 hour
- Total Distance: 4.2
- Avg HR: 162!!!!!
SO... more fun will ensue today and then tomorrow we all take off for Sun River! Whoop Whoop!
p.s. Drew tagged me with that silly question thing that you might have seen on other blogs... the jury is out as to whether I'll actually complete it!
