Yesterday was a beautiful day here in Florida. It started off a bit cool but the sun was shining and it was a great day to be outside. Karel and I started our morning with a bike ride. I only rode with Karel for about 45 minutes because he went out for a 5 hour ride and I wanted nothing to do with that :) It was super windy and Karel was doing some intense intervals. I rode with Karel on Thursday morning and although the ride helped to loosen out my legs, it is alway heart-pumping to try to stay on his wheel. But after 4 years of riding (or attempting to ride) with Karel, I can finally keep up with his tempo intervals. Perhaps in 4 more years I can pretend I can sprint with him.....um...I think my slow twitch fibers are laughing right now at that comment.
While Karel was riding, I finished my 40 mile ride and asked my brother if he wanted to go for an easy run. After warming-up with Campy for 3/4ths mile, I enjoyed an easy run (about 8:30 min/mile pace) with my brother, just chatting away. I went about 4 miles and Aaron did a bit more with a total of 6.5 miles. While we were running, my mom and dad went for a walk/jog and covered about 3 miles.
After a morning of working out, we all went to Sunset beach for a little relaxing. Campy had a blast with all the smells of the water.
