Dirty Riding

This weekend Jen and I got out for a nice ten mile run on Saturday and then rode ten miles in Forest Park on Sunday.

Saturday morning we woke up to a balmy 36 downtown so we knew it would be at least that cold along the river where we planned on running. I wore tights, shorts, and a long sleeve shirt and I was still pretty cold for the first couple of miles. I brought gloves with me too but didn't end up wearing them. We ran a nice pace for the entire run and ended up with an 8:25 AP.

Sunday we slept in a bit then decided to go for a bike ride in Forest Park before meeting some friends for brunch downtown. Our plan was to ride right to the restaurant to meet them but it didn't quite work out that way. We only rode a couple of miles into the park but by the time we got back to paved roads we were covered in mud. We decided that the restaurant most likely wouldn't like us in (or allow us in) when we were caked in mud so we decided to stop by our place first and change our clothes and wash the mud out of our hair.




Totals for the week: 24 miles of running; 10 mtb miles, and 85 minutes on the trainer

Thank you for showering before eating brunch with us =). JK...I was all sweaty and still in my running clothes...one great thing about Portland- no one cares what you look like or what you're wearing.
