    I signed up for an August triathlon back in February. Sprint-ish length (500 yards/15.5 miles/5k), my first. And thus far I've avoided any attempt at running. Decided to quit avoiding it, rip the band aid off and pounded out a 5k yesterday and my legs today are letting me know they're not pleased. But, because I'm a masochist, I decided to go out and do a hill workout this morning. Yup, legs are definitely not happy with me now. Hopefully I'll have enough in me tomorrow to swim and then do a long(er) ride.

    Kinda slowed down a bit to let my knee heal. I bruised it in a balancing act trying to hold my bicycle and take a photo. When the bicycle fell, it hit the bottom part of my ITB rather sharply.

    I'll have to add in my distances for 3 more days of cycling, but for the moment I'll just mention one of those three days.

    On Saturday 26 March, my husband and I rode a 300 km randonnee ... 300 kilometres in 17 hours and 6 minutes. :)

    30 Days of Biking starts on Friday! Lots of group rides organized for the twin cities (although you don't have to be in the twin cities to pledge and participate) - I'm looking forward to the Saturday pastry rides o:) I'm not a very social cyclist (or a social person in general). 99% of my rides are solo, so I'll be stepping outside my comfort zone with these rides, but I'm hoping to meet new people and maybe make new friends. And eat pastries. Mmmm pastries.

    Been a while since I have checked in. Still trying to make an effort to get on the bike regularly and had a nice few rides over March.

    For anyone that hasn't heard of it 30 days of biking starts in April.

    30 days of biking is pretty straight forward -- you can sign up here - http://30daysofbiking.com/ (free) to make a commitment to bike all 30 days of the month -- no distances too far or short, no repercussions if you don't.

    The coolest part is that for every 2 people that commit to 30 Days of Biking they will donate $1 to World Bicycle Relief.

    Its a good cause and always a great way to have a daily reminder to get on a bike.
    Last time I rode 30 days straight was last April.

    Just got in 14 easy miles yesterday with my Tuesday morning ride with neighbors, and took today as a rest day, as I had 27.5 miles left to wrap up to hit my running target and was able to knock out 15 of them. Might do a short ride tomorrow once I knock out my remaining running miles, but if not, happy with my total.

    3/1 - 50 miles
    3/2 - 25 miles
    3/3 - 21 miles
    3/4 - 41 miles
    3/5 - 13 miles
