30 Mile Bike Ride
I was supposed to run a 10 mile run today; however, I am still taking it pretty easy in regards to running and with my foot in hopes that I will be able to run the Marathon the 14th of January. Since I was supposed to run 10 miles today, and it would take me about 100 minutes, I decided that I would ride the bike for at least 100 minutes. Instead I managed to ride the bike for 2 hours and 5 minutes. Overall it was a great ride, and I could really feel it in my legs. I managed to do 30.5 miles, and had to do the last half with the wind in my face. One of these days I will learn to start out with the wind in my face and finish with the wind on my back.
I also ordered my shoes yesterday. I found a web site called Road Runner Sports (http://www.roadrunnersports.com/). I joined the “VIP” program for $1.99 which gives you a discount, and I also got free shipping. I then did a
google” search and found a coupon that I could use for an additional 10% off my purchase. Bottom line is that I ended up getting the Asics Gel-Kayano 17, in black, for $113.39 instead of the regular price of $139. So that was a pretty good deal, and it will be a site that I purchase from more often if they continue to have such good deals. Oh … and I paid a little extra ($5.99) to have the shoes delivered to my house by Wednesday. I figure that will give me a good 10 days to break them in before I have to run the Marathon.
