So my sweet blog was suspected of being a spam blog and was consequently taking off-line for several days, which led to a dearth in posts. I'm sure that is not a problem for most people.
Over the past 3 days I've biked 150 miles, which has felt pretty nice. Today was a good, hard workout on the bike of 2 hours with some threshold pushes up hills and in big gears followed by an easy 3.5 mile transition run. The run felt ok; stride was off for a bit but then warmed up and smoothed out after a little over a mile.
