As with the past couple of weekends, we went out for a 12 mile bike ride and the intent of doing a 5K run.
Once I started running, I actually got to thinking that I would run 4 miles, so I was off. I was averaging a 9 1/2 minute mile and feelingreally good. When I got into mile 3 I started having some severe side cramps. So I walked for a minute of so and then picked it back up again. About the end of mile 3 the cramps came back and I decided that I would just dust the run off when I got to the truck, this happened to be at about 3.5 miles. So, I had an overall good day, but had a slight failure.
Emily on the other hand completed her 4 miles. During the run she spotted a deer on the running path.
I asked why she didn’t get a picture with the deer, but apparently that didn’t occur to her.
We are both really enjoying cycling. I find that it is a great warm up for my runs and it is working a totally different group of muscles.
This weekend, we are delaying our training by a day so that we can go and spectate the Ironman Texas, which is just up the road from us.
In other news, we do have a twitter account started (@cajunmile) and hope to be posting more frequently there.
