Spent this week on the stay at home honeymoon. Lots of quality time with the new wife. Good to hang out and spend time together...watch movies and such.
I did an 8 mile run this morning with an 11:23 pace which puts me on track to make sure I get the swag at the Annapolis 10 miler next Sunday.
Also getting very excited for 'cross season to start. First practice is this Thursday, with a potluck following at the shop. Means I am going to need to cook up some of the sweet potato casserole that everyone likes. I think I finally have sorted out the issues I have been having with the left cleat on the egg beaters not releasing. I adjusted the cleat on the sole a bit so that its has my heal facing in a bit more...this seems to let me release a bit earlier. I practiced a bit on it yesterday and feel much more comfortable with it. I went out on the local ball field and ran the bike up and down a first base line mounting and dismounting probably 50 times. It felt good and hopefully i'll be able to run up the speed a bit and get on and off quicker and better.
