Wow, what a crazy week this has been. So much has gone on, I am not sure where to start. Us Ohioans had a nice treat this week as the temps reached 60 on Wednesday and Thursday. I was able to get out and make the most of the weather. I even got the new bike out too. All I have to say is WOW. That bike is solid as a rock and just begs to go faster. It is going to be a fun summer. Start saving your pennies kiddos, as you have to go buy one. It is no wonder that bike finished first and second at the Tour De France. Ok, back to training. This week ended up being more of a recovery week as I did not have a "long" run, but a "long" workout. I also had my first race of 2011 and set a 5K PR by 1 minute 21 seconds. Check out my race report entry for more information. So, this has been a really good week. I learned a lot in the race and I am ready to get back to work and improve on weak areas that I have. This will be a big week for me as I have a long run planned Saturday of 18 miles.
