I crawled into bed last night at 10:48 and rolled around for another half hour - ya'know how you are so tired and can't get to sleep? The reason for staying up so late is that I took my three oldest to visit some other families at a group camping event. Even though I slept in until 6:45 a.m. I was in my skates rolling out my driveway at 7:15. As I skated the first blocked I settled in my mind that I would take it easy and only do 20 today.
My sweet spot is between 9 miles and 15. My whole attitude changes, my whole body loosens up and I feel like a million. At 14 miles I made a deal with myself that I was in for another 10.
I finished 24.2 miles in 1 hour and 44 minutes. Here is the route.
