This was a good week for me. I felt really strong all week and posted some of my best times training so far. I ran 5 miles on Tuesday at an 8:00 minute per mile pace and shaved 2 minutes off my best 15 mile run on Saturday. Best of all, I was able to get outside on Sunday. It was even nice enough in the afternoon to get out on my bike, which was my first outside ride on 2011. I have a lot of excitement going into this week. Saturday will be my first race of 2011. Also, I have a big beer bet with @shellsruns on the race. If you are not following her on Twitter, you should. She's a good follow and a fellow CLE runner. Also, the weather forecast is looking promising for getting outside more this week. Always a good thing. On a non cardio note. The weekend is the Daytona 500 and a long weekend as a result of a Bank Holiday. To make things even better, my favorite driver won the pole for the race, so a lot of good going on around the Beal lately.
