2 much needed days off. Caught up on neglected stuff around the house.
Tried on my new Helix wetsuit - here I am looking like a major dork. Hehe. Wetsuit feels REALLY, REALLY good.
Being the carbon fiber whore I am, I went out and bought the pink-breast cancer support carbon T2 Sidi's.

25 miles along Marine Drive/ 30 min run
My first ride on Feltalia was brutal. She rides nice but I need the fit to be corrected. I was supposed to take this ride easy since I'm in my recovery week but the winds on Marine Drive had another plan for me. I knew there would be a problem when I was pushing or shall I say coasting a mer 90 watts going 20 MPH, once on the main stretch I pushed 170 watts going 28 mph. Coming back was a b^&$*, 200-240 watts going between 14-16 mph, it was brutal. The wind was howling so loud it encouraged me to howl back.
Max watts reached 375 and I avg'd 145. This rides power graph is pretty wicked. BTW, love the new Sidi's!
Post ride I did an easy 30 min run = 3.5 miles 8:40 avg. I left my Ipod in the car and chased the sun as it set. I feels good to run again.
On another note - The fracture clinic said that there wasn't anything they could do to fix me. My bone is creating calcium and healing. Now I just need to slowly start adding miles.
