Challenges of the Week.

This week of training contained some new challenges as my work outs are getting longer! I ran 14 miles on Tuesday, but my pace was a little slower than my goal. I was barely managing a 10 minute mile while I was shooting for 9:30. However, it was a great training day in the sunshine! I think I will be able to pick up the pace a bit next week.
My 77 mile bike ride on Thursday was a different story. I rode 2.5 laps around Hayden Lake and then out to where Rimrock Road turns to gravel (the location of the second picture). My long ride definitely tested my mental conviction. It started to rain around the same time my legs started to burn, with 30 miles to go! I guess my nemesis from last year, the bike ride, is going to be my biggest challenge again this year....
