Still somwhat recovering from the Half Marathon last Saturday. Haven't run or biked until today. Rode at about 75% effort but I can feel that I have lost some cycling conditioning. Originally I was going to shoot for 22 mph on the 1.5 mile Time Trial on Saturday but now I'm thinking it will only be about 20.5 mph. Hopefully my legs will feel a little stronger by Saturday afternoon.

“That’s why, when I heard of the solid trust you have in the Master Jesus and your outpouring of love to all the followers of Jesus, I couldn’t stop thanking God for you—every time I prayed, I’d think of you and give thanks. But I do more than thank. I ask—ask the God of our Master, Jesus Christ, the God of glory—to make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is he is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life he has for his followers, oh, the utter extravagance of his work in us who trust him—endless energy, boundless strength!” Ephesians 1:18

I will have to fill in all of the details when they post the official results but I was dissipointed in my racing. I guess my legs were just not recovered from the half marathon last weekend. They felt heavy and tired even as I starated the race.

This was interesting as I had never been in a bike race before. The bikers seem pretty serious about this sport and I wasn't really able to strike up a conversation with anyone except the lady taking the entries. The start was from a raised platform and each rider was released in 30 second intervals based on your estimated speed. I had entered 20 mph but actually expected to average more like 21 mph. The route turned out to be very hilly. At the end of the race I heard several racers talking about how difficult the course was. I would say it is was a little tougher than my typical practice routes around my house but not enough to take so much time off my average speed. Even though my legs were tired I still averaged about 23 mph throughout the first half of the race. At mile 8 I had dropped to 22 mph but at the end of the race, where the real hills were, I dropped to 19.7. Even with that I passed two riders in front of me who had 30 seconds and 1 minute leads on me. I was thinking as I passed them and got close to the finish line that everyone was probably having trouble with the hills.

Anyway, I ended up 4th in my age group (probably 25 entries) so it wasn't too bad. The top rider in my gorup was 20 mph avg. overall.

Psalm 121:1-8

1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—

    where does my help come from?

2 My help comes from the Lord,

    the Maker of heaven and earth.
