My workout for today consisted of hopping on my bike to run to the grocery store and get creamer for our morning coffee. The total mileage to the store and back is about 1.7 miles. I justified it to myself in that I rode as hard as I could and really got my heart rate up. I was please to find that I could hold a 15mph pace the entire stretch. I know that’s not incredibly fast, but it’s faster than I thought I could sustain without killing myself. It gave me hope.
I’m going to add the countdown to the Beach2Battleship Half Ironman, which is my goal for this season, to my website. Hopefully this will be a good motivator.
On a fun note, Wrigley and I participated in our first Rally Competition yesterday. Rally is a combination of obedience and agility with the dog and handler moving from station to station to complete certain tasks that are written on cards at each station. Wrigley and I got 87 points out of a possible 100. We were both extremely excited as it was our first time competing. Because of a prior commitment, we had to leave before the competition was over so we don’t know yet how we placed, but it really doesn’t matter. I am super proud of our little boy and how hard he works. You can check out his blog here, it has a more detailed description of the competition and his agility pursuits.
