- Actually follow the swim workouts I bring to the pool. Seriously, whats the point in bringing them if I'm just going to blow them off 400 meters into it.
- Re-think the Friday morning spin. Last Friday my legs were exhausted.
- Plus, spin classes aren't shit compared to what it's like to actually ride a mtb on the road. It really sucks to get passed by people who you know shouldn't be passing you but they do by default because they have better more suitable equipment - like a road bike
- I need to actually get my arse out on the pavement and ride.

After about two glasses of wine we left and took the party back to my house (after stopping at the store and getting a couple more bottles of wine of course). When it was all said and done, I think I ended up drinking over a full bottle by myself.
Which brings me to my long run this morning. Yikes. I was going to meet with my running group whom I haven't run with in months. meet up time was at 8am. Yeah, that didn't happen. I ended up doing the run on my own around 10ish.
Total miles: 8.5/10:59 av. pace
Here are the stats:
Mile 1: 9:18 (140 bpm) huge downhill that I will see again only going up at mile 8 Mile 2: 10:10 (160 bpm)
Mile 3: 12:54 (164 bpm) again huge uphill 381 ft in elevation and almost 1 mile long, I have never been able to run all the way up this bitch
Mile 4: 10:28 (164 bpm) Mile 5: 10:25 (162 bpm) took half a Mocha flavored Cliff gel that was way passed the expiration date. I could practically chew it. Gross. I don't think it helped anyways but at least the nastiness of the gel masked the nastiness of my wine hangover mouth.
Mile 6: 10:09 (164 bpm) Mile 7: 10:16 (166 bpm)
Mile 8: 14:27 (168 bpm)another huge hill only about 300 feet in elevation but always tough at the end of a run, I have never been able to run all the way up this one either. I should turn that into a goal.
Mile .5: 10:29 (170 bpm) I had to run and extra half mile for good measure since I walked up part of those two hills
