We had discussed doing Patriots Half in September but my body is just not ready, especially the running. While we’ve done some moderate bike rides – 35 miles or so – I’ve been struggling to get through 4-5 mile runs at a very slow pace. That may be turning a corner now as I try to balance time off for recovery with moderate exercise.
Had my body been ready to jump back in after a week or two of downtime then I probably would have gone for it. Instead, we’ve decided to do Giant Acorn Olympic to close-out the Tri season, with hopefully a few of the organized metric centuries (Cider ride; Pumpkin ride; 50 States; etc.) and the Richmond 1/2 marathon in November.
But I’m hoping to get back in the saddle and do 1 or 2 more next year. But no idea what or when.
