Track + Cycling + Catching Fire

21 Nov

1. I have not been to the track since the week of Chicago. Maybe 6 weeks ago? There has definitely been a decline in my speed. Yes I have been recovering but I need to get back to it! Today was that day. I have 8 weeks until RNR Arizona Marathon. There is definite work to be done. I did 8×400. It was ok. It was cold, headwind, and ice on about 20% of the track. It probably could have gone worse! 🙂

2. I am back to riding my bike to work. The temperature has dropped considerably this week. Miserable. I have gone through 3 or 4 pairs of good cycling gloves in the past year. I had a MT Hard Wear pair forever that I loved and forgot them somewhere. Bought a new pair and started to love them and forgot them somewhere. It is a vicious cycle! The last pair I lost was right before summer so I did not bother to buy another pair.

Now that it is “winter” again and my hands were numb for 15 minutes last night when I got home after just wearing my running gloves…I have decided to buy a new pair! Like tomorrow!

Cold winter cycling tip: wear a pair of latex gloves under your gloves. I did that on my way home from the office this afternoon. Worked like a charm!

3. Who is excited for Catching Fire to start tomorrow??!! I rented Hunger Games this afternoon to prepare to see Catching Fire in the next couple of weeks!

What was the last track work out you did?
Are you going to see Catching Fire this weekend??
