4.2 Run Followed With 25 Mile Ride

Okay my run today was AWESOME!!! 
I took Advil before bed, and some before I ran it totally helped! I ran with my friend Robyn. Today I wanted to run somewhere different so I ran a local trail. BEAUTIFUL!!!! I ran past a pond with ducks, buffalo, deer, and a beautiful rushing river.
I took it easy on the first half and push harder the second half. It was a great run. 
I needed a great run after my last run. So I was grateful for a good run :)
Nope this isn't snow it's COTTON!!! Achoo :)

I finished my run and a few hours later went for an awesome bike ride. I am not a biker, I was taught to ride a bike when I was little. I haven't gotten on one for YEARS! Well my neighborhood is FULL of die hard bikers, and they talk to me about it all the time! Well. . . .I went for a spin today and LOVED IT!!!! I borrowed my Aunts bike and rode with my cute friend Jodi we rode 25 miles!!!!!!!
*I did wear a helmet on the actual ride :)
IT ROCKED! I am hooked, I want a ROAD bike! 
I couldn't believe how many miles we covered in such a short time.

How did you spend your Saturday?

Wow what a nice day of exercise. I got my exercise through house work today. I cleaned like crazy and it felt so good to get things done.

wow, nice job. and 25 miles on a mountain bike is HARD. you should give extra kudos to yourself for that!
you'll cruise on a road bike;-)

Awesome job on the bike ride - i've been meaning to get into that too.

The sun was shining today in my neck of the woods also - so took the opportunity to go for a 6.3 mile walk along the beachfront. Whoo hoo to sunny Saturdays!

You are one sport away from a triathlon missy! Thanks for sharing the photos and how much you enjoyed your run and the rest of the day.

Raegun said...

What an incredibly scenic running route. Looks like fun!

Amy said...

Holy smokes! Good for you, that is amazing.

And I'm dying to know where that trail is, it looks beautiful!

Natalia said...

good for you running AND biking! I went to Y and got some cardio in. I wished we lived in an area that was nicer to bike or walk in. We don't have beautiful views!

I'm so scared to get on a bike! I only do stationary bikes at the gym! haha!

Sounds like you had a great day filled with many adventures and fantastic successes!!! =)

Carly said...

I love cycling! It's a great way to mix it up!

therightfit said...

What a beautiful place to run! You are lucky to have a place like that nearby.

Love the definition in your arms on the bike ride! :)

Fran said...

Great run and bike ride!

I live in Holland and Holland is known for it's bikes. Almost everybody here owns a bike (me included) and we have lots of trails for bikes.

I didn't do much Saturday, it was hot yesterday so I enjoyed reading a book in the shadow.

dawne said...

Impressive! You've inspired me to get my bike out. I haven't ridden since I've lost my weight...I'm afraid of the seat without my extra cushioning! :)

Seth said...

awesome job!

*Whitney* said...

Great job! Looks like it was a beautiful day for a run and a bike ride.

OrangeBlossom said...

Great job on the run! Beautiful pictures.

Amazing that you also rode 25 miles! I wouldn't think of riding a bike around here with our killer hills. Maybe some day....

Lisa Eirene said...

Woo hoo! Yay for biking. Glad you're hooked. :)

Hey Lindsey, Maybe you can get a trailer and take me along. I swear I will make whole wheat muffins and share. You are like super woman now. I am just offering to make your ride more challenging. 152 pounds more challenging. ( not counting the trailer)
Good luck with your next ride!!
Keep up the great work!

Karen R said...

Sounds like a great way to spend a beautiful day!

I had not been on a bike in YEARs myself and went to REI in February and tested some out. I got a pink beach cruiser bike. It's hilarious because in my neighborhood, people are hard-core riders and there I am once or twice a week cruising on my pink beach bike.

Good luck to you! Maybe a triathalon in your future... :)

Julie said...

You'll be my biking buddy yet!!! I'm so glad you had a good run AND a great bike ride to boot!

Skye said...

Yay!!! I'm so glad you had an awesome run!!! And once again, what beautiful pics! Thanks for sharing!

I love riding, but my bike was stolen a few years ago and I never bought another one. ) : Although, I've seriously been thinking about getting a new one lately. I don't want to get burned out with walking.

Traci said...

Holy moly that is one heck of a workout. What an awesome accomplishment!

Missy said...

I spent my Saturday much the same way - on a bike! A friend and I did 40 miles. It's nice to have a challenge to complete!!
