Soaking up the sun

After the past weekend being wet and windy, with cloudy days to follow... I'm glad the sun's up again this weekend. I feel a bit like Captain Planet but I somehow feel more energetic when the sun is up shining brightly and not when it is dark and gloomy.

Saturday's bike ride had some moderately strong winds blowing at 17kph. I completed the 82.17km distance in 2:43:25 (average 30.1kph). My rear brakes were making some noise, but at least it is responding now.

Sunday's 13km run, I encountered the usual tightness in my left hamstring on the 2nd loop. But after slowing down a while, I was able to get back into pace for the 3rd loop. Finished the run in 55:39 (average 4:17 per km) my second fastest since the Ironman.

By now, the courageous few who took part in the Sundown Marathon would be resting after completing such an arduous race. I haven't actually given this race much thought as one to do in the future. But you never know.

Will start doing brick runs next weekend. In preparation for PD Triathlon.
