bike hills (mtn bike on road) 2:04:00 [4] 40.0 km (3:06 / km)

Off camping with friends in Moncton. Took the mtn bikes. Sat morn we got up in search of a McDonalds (I know, but I needed eggs) and it was about 20 kms much of it straight up a hill. Of course IronKing was leading the climb. When I could stay with him on the flat areas the drafting was great. We reached a max of 46.8 kms and our average was about 20 kms/hr. It was a gorg, sunny and gently windy day. Perfect.

run hills 1:26:14 [4] 17.0 km (5:04 / km)

Cricket and I did my 17 km route in the opposite direction. Started along the #1 Hwy and up thru the woods to English mtn road. This is fun to run down in the other direction--and a real blast to chug up. I was the little train, "I think I can, I think I can, I KNOW I can". Then running all the way down the gruesome Cambridge mTN road with a lovely head wind was a treat. We really ran fast and well. Both of us were still tired from last night's bike ride. Now it's off the lunch at a winery under the pergola. I train so I can eat:)

run hills 1:20:00 [2] 13.0 km (6:09 / km)

Not a stellar day for my health. Got myself sleeping in until 9:30 so can't sleep at night. Anyhoo, took 2 gravol to sleep last night and had cramps from food yesterday (it was a rest day).

Planned to run 20 kms up the mtn. It's 36 degrees here and close. Part way up the mtn I decided to do 17 and then had to turn around at the 6.5 km mark. Just too crampy and no energy. Need to swim and run tomorrow so can't tire myself out. A bike ride with the beavers tonight too so must get better fast.

bike hills 1:09:12 [4] 30.0 km (2:18 / km)

On the bike with Cricket and Valley girl. Since we didn't have Newbie with us we coached Valley girl. I realized quickly that no one had taught her about the big sprocket and changing gears. I rode ahead or behind her all but climbing hills so I could get her to follow my cadence and change gears when I did. It was a solid ride and we kept the pace at about 30 kms/hr. Our max was 56.8 kms/hr. Some awesome hills. It was a really fun ride.

bike hills 2:18:43 [4] 74.34 km (1:52 / km)

Wasn't really keen to bike today but it was sunny and Lance had won yesterday so out I set. It was cool and threatening rain so I had to move quickly. Again I chose a new route. This took me along the 221 to Canning. I stopped at ArtCan, a quaint art shoppe/cafe and art gallery overlooking the river. Had a great cup of Just Us tea.

Up to the Look Off and it started to rain so I zoomed home. By the last 10 kms it was pouring, but Lance and the boys biked days in the mtns in rain, so I just enjoyed:) Maximum 45.3 kms/hr and averaged 36.6 kms/hr. Yahoo.
