Thoughts for the end of June

How is it already July??  Let’s see how the end of June played out.

Sunday:

I got together with the girls for an 80K ride out in Kananaskis, starting at the Stoney Nakoda Resort & Casino.  The plan was to ride 40K at race pace.  Our route was pretty hilly and we were riding into the wind on our way out so there were not thoughts of race pace at all.  The way back though?  We were flying!  After the ride we popped into the casino for lunch and I got carded! 

Monday:

My orders for the day were clear – REST HARD!  No problem!

Tuesday:

Our Tuesday night bike ride was out in Bearspaw.  I was feeling a bit dizzy at the end of the work day, but I went home had something to eat and opted to ride out to our meeting point.  I got to the parking lot and I was feeling really dizzy.  As Angie was telling us our workout I was thinking, wow, I cannot handle intervals on the bike!  As people took off for I talked with Angie.  She looked at me and proclaimed that I did not look good and that I needed to go home.  So I rode the few minutes back home and hung out on the couch the rest of the night.  No fever and no real idea of where the dizziness was coming from.

Wednesday:

Oh, what to do!  I still had some moments of dizziness in the morning that luckily went away after breakfast.  I met up with Kelly for a run with the proviso that I could run for 10 minutes, but if I was still feeling off I needed to call it a day and walk it in.  Luckily I felt good on the run and I made it through just over 6K with 4 x :30 hard/1:30 easy.

Thursday:

Canada Day!! 

And with that, it is time to head off north to Great White North.  Half iron on Sunday!
