I kind of felt like the space shuttle Challenger today … I pretty much exploded immediately after launch. AvgHR 168bpm, MaxHR 184bpm … on the flats, while doing a whopping 15 mph. The absolute lowest my heart rate got was 143bpm …

The bright side is that I finished the loop, got some miles in my legs, got some vitamin D from the sun, and managed to at least temporarily kick myself out of the motivational slump I’ve felt the past few days. Now all I have to do is keep it going.

The next order of business however? I need a burrito. Barbacoa, here I come!
