My easy 5k was cut short by a k… It turned out not to be an easy one after all – first mile 7:12, second mile 7:14… I was pushing for the home stretch when I stumbled upon some sense – I’ve got a charity ride tomorrow and I really didn’t need to try to ride 100k with spent legs… The point is, I don’t know where this speed is coming from. I “can’t” run that fast!? I’m an 8 minute miler in mid season form.

I do know what it is technically, I ride hard, a lot, so my lactate threshold is increasing. I also pedal fast, 90-100 rpm so I’m building fast twitch muscle fiber which allows me to keep my running cadence fast (I actually match my cycling cadence).

Still, I never expected this.

In any event, it was a really fun run, followed by some fellowship at the running club, a few tacos and a fantastic Saturday nap.
