On Saturday I rode my bike 180km immediately followed by a 22km run. Had a shower, ate some Pad Thai, visited with my teammates and went to bed. On Sunday I rode back home 180km. This morning (Monday) I then ran another 22 km before work. I then rode my bike downtown and back to my office twice (for 2 separate meetings). My legs are a little sore now. I have actually built up to this kind of training and if anyone ever would have told me I could do this I would have laughed in their face. Anyway- I also SHOULD be at this level at this time of the season given the races I'm training for. I will be doing several ultra races this year so I'm beginning to feel more and more confident that I can actually accomplish this.
Anyway, I wore flat shoes to give my feet a nice cushy break from tight fitting heels :)

I did a sock bun today since I wasn't commuting to work by bike. I love high buns and this one turned out not too bad. I need more practice to perfect it. This is the conundrum. I commute to work by bike so its hard to do a nice hairdo that you can actually wear under the helmet. Since I also then use the bike to go downtown for meetings during the day its not like I want to be doing my hair up all fancy again each time I go somewhere. What is a girl to do? I end up just wearing my hair plain which is totally boring.
Anyway, as if this is really anything important anyway when there's way worse things happening in the world.
I hope you are all well. I'm taking off on a 360 km ride this weekend. Its our annual 360 ride. We ride 180 km up, spend the night in a hotel and then ride home the next day. There will be about 25 of us going. I love it and its one of my favorite rides so should be fun.
Thats it for now. Over n out.
