Went to Gruene and rode with the Big Boys 29.3 miles (145 HR) @ 19 mph avg.
Since I ran 5 miles yesterday I didn't want to over do it on the running this morning and since I am planning on going and riding with the Big Boys this evening I didn't want to bike. So....I decided to run 2 at a little faster pace. My legs have continued to be slightly sore because of all the biking but slowly they are getting better (I think building some new muscles where the're needed). I don't seem to have any joint pain (hip, knees, ankles) which is good. The results of the run seem pretty good compared to a few 2 mile runs last spring. My speed is faster with a slightly lower heart rate. The only thing is mentally I struggled thinking "this seems too hard". I think with a little more running I'll break through the mental thing. I'm going to keep the milage down for a while to make sure the hip problem doesn't come back.
I'm starting to think about upcoming races and what I want to do. First I want to break 20:00 in a 5K. Then I plan to run a Half. There is one in Gruene on Oct. 29 that I may run. They do have a Full but I know I won't be ready for that. I may even just run the Half as a training run and not push too hard. Beyond that I'm thinking about the Austin 3M, Austin Livestrong, Ft Worth Cowtown and mabye San Antonio.
Here's the results from todays run:
