Just before 8am I was all stretched out and ready to see how well I could do. A quick peak at my pump said that I was 160, I smiled and thought maybe this will work. I put on the Killers and went off my first three mile run, it took about a half mile for my body to wake up, from then on I felt like I was running and riding the best I have all season long. I somehow finished my first run in a time of 22 minutes and 9 seconds. I felt great and was ready for the bike, I quickly changed and off I went. I will be running a mile before I ride my bike from now on, as soon as I got on the bike my body felt at home. It usually takes a good five miles for my body to get in to cycling, not today. I was breathing well and knew my heart rate was around 140, just what I wanted. I didn't want to ride and burn myself out before my last run. I did not bring my Garmin with me at all today, I didn't want to see a clock and know how I was doing, I just wanted to do it and see how well I did everything. I finished my twenty-one mile bike ride in 1 hour 8 minutes and 31 seconds. On to the final three mile run, my legs felt amazing for about two miles. The last mile my legs began to be a little sore, I believe it was the number of hills on the second run, until then a lot of run and biking was on flats. I arrived home and was out of breath and all I wanted to see was a time under two hours. I stopped the stopwatch on my phone and was pumped when I saw 1 hour 53 minutes and 45 seconds.
After catching my breath and getting some water I rushed over to my meter to test my blood sugar, I was 126. Somehow, someway everything went very smoothly today. I'm shocked that I ran so well and that my blood sugar stayed under 200 as I did everything. I believe the next step for me is to try and learn how to swim. I'm not going to say why but I'm sure everyone could figure it out.
