Since it was Thanksgiving here today I had the day off work. Instead of a run I ended up going for a family bike ride with my wife and daughter in order to take advantage of the almost summer-like weather we received this weekend.
While my schedule called for an easy 6 mile run after yesterday’s 20 mile run this was a much more enjoyable way to spend the day off work.
We set out with no plan in mind other than to stop somewhere along the way to have a picnic. After stopping to see friends playing their annual Thanksgiving football game we headed for a picnic spot followed by a stop downtown for ice cream before we headed home.
In the end we ended up with a 14.5 km ride. I am not sure yet if I should count this as cross training or use it to replace one of my easy runs this week, I am looking for opinions on Twitter right now.
Regardless of how I fit this into this week’s training schedule I could not have picked a better way to spend the day.
