Happy Easter Weekend!
I did a great job keeping on track with my saturday workout (and even went above & beyond!) I was scheduled for a brick (or back to back bike-run), with a 60 min bike, then a 3 mile run. After I got home from work, I got Kevin to get dressed and we headed out for a ride. The first 20 min I spent lagging behind, chasing a mouse & got frustrated and upset. Kevin had us swap, and me go in front which led to a much better time for both of us. We hit major headwinds on the way back, 

We managed a little over 15.5 miles in 1:15, with our speeds dropping quite a bit on the second half. I counted part of this as my Jelly Bean Virtual Race bike 20K.

Then I headed out for the 3 mile run, not expecting anything great. I actually felt pretty good, which surprised me, and I was able to pull an 11:27 average pace for the run after the ride.

I was a tired Tough Chik after!!

I'm really going to make an effort to get my brick workouts in every week. I really think that was a low point in my training last year. A must this year with 70.3 on the horizon.

Time for Pizza and relaxing before the crazziness of Easter tomorrow. I still have to get my final Jelly Bean Race event in. But first, check out what came in the mail....


excited to try them!
Happy Easter!

Every year I say I'm going to do more brick workouts, then I don't. I came close today, 6 mile hilly run followed by 28 mile ride. But...there was a 3 hour rest between the two, so it really wasn't a brick!!

I also did jelly bean events last week. Good job on yours!
