This morning while doing, my 2 mile warm-up lap on my bike, I hit a slippery patch of road while trying to go around a speed bump I went down. I noticed my left pinky finger was making a left turn. Assessing that it was dislocated and not broken, I pulled it back in place. Now it's just purple! I also have road rash on the left side of my body.
Steve joined us for our ride today. While it's nice to have another person pull into the wind, Steve is stronger and faster than me so it was quite a workout. Often we were going 22 -24 mph. Hey he's also 20 years younger.
This past week has been a slow week in training, although I feel like I'm getting a little faster on the bike. My ave speed has gone up and I recover faster. Now if I could just get faster on the run.
Saturday after my run and swim, I met up with Joanne and took a tennis lesson. It's a lot of fun chasing the ball around the court. My hamstrings don't seem to like it though.
Sunday I met up with Tony for our LSD ride. Although I feel like we are not going slow but jump in going as fast as we can. We did the Pelcian Sound Loop then debated given the pending rain on going out on the roads. We decided to stay in and modify our course adding extras to the various circles we go around. I ended with 40 miles with an average of 18.4 mph.
