At 7 am morning, Mark ran five miles in the Shoehouse race. I slept. He came in 7th, with a time of 34 minutes, five seconds. Which is so much faster than I can do almost anything. He was not happy with that time because a woman beat him. I didn’t feel sorry for him.
After the race, we both biked 19 miles on our road bikes. I have been trying to increase my speed on my regular route, and since the start of the season I have gone from an average of 14.5 miles per hour to 16 miles per hour. I have done this by pedaling as fast as I can, until I feel like I might puke, and then pedaling even faster. I also think the fact that I have started running has helped.
