I worked out today

Last night Yancy and I joined some friends in North Seattle for a beer tasting event. This event was HUGE! I don’t drink beer, which gave me the privilege of being designated driver for Yancy who ended up drinking something like 40 oz. of beer! Other than being too crowded, it was a lot of fun and a good way to wrap up our Saturday.

This morning we slept in a little before heading off to circuit training class. I didn’t give it my all because I somehow strained my left knee during yesterday’s Pineapple Classic race. It hurts to bend my knee… especially when bearing weight, like taking the stairs or sitting down onto a chair. But I still got a good workout in and sweat a bit. We came home to eat, change, and relax a few hours before heading back out for workout #2. It was a 10k time trial bike ride on a computrainer with over 20 minutes of warm-up. You bring your bike and set the back tire into this contraption hooked up to a computer and the front tire sits in a stand. So you’re riding your own bike like it’s a stationary bike. During the time trial, the computer changes your resistance to simulate going up and down hills. It tracks your speed, distance, wattage, and other technical stuff on a big screen at the front of the room. Yancy and I had a good race and kept a great pace… but he still beat me! Here’s the stats from today’s ride:
