Bike 30.57 mi
This was my longest bike ride to date! I headed out early on Sunday morning to avoid the crowds on the trails and was somewhat successful. By the time I was close to home things were picking up. I wore my new bike jersey for the first time and realized it is very nice to have so many pockets. I did the return trip about five minutes faster than the way out, so I was quite happy with that. I also felt a lot more comfortable getting in and out of my pedals.

Run 6.2 mi
I feel like despite my best intentions and plans, my running mileage has been rather low recently. I decided to start the week with six miles to get off on the right foot.
Tuesday June 14
Bike - 25.7 mi (AM), 4.6 mi (PM)
This was another successful morning ride at Hains Point with Sarah. I still get passed by almost everyone, but I feel like my pace is improving every so slightly.
I realized in the evening that I am probably going to have to avoid bike commuting on Tuesdays. I go past Arlington Cemetery and Iwo Jima on my way home and on Tuesday nights the Marine Corps band has a summer concert series. There were a ton of tour buses parked along 110 and herds of tourists on the bike path along 110 and Iwo Jima. Despite the fact that I kept yelling "passing on your left" and "excuse me" and "coming behind you on a bike," people really didn't move out of the way. I feel lucky that I didn't fall over or hit anyone.
Wednesday June 15
Swim 2800 yds
This was another good morning swim. I actually forced myself to push the pace a bit with a set of 100s and it wasn't as bad as I was expecting. I definitely feel like I should be able to do them on a faster interval, but it was a decent start. I know I can't expect too much when I'm only swimming 1 or 2 times a week.

Run 5.25 mi
Another decent morning run at a steady pace. I know I need to start fitting in at least one speed or tempo session a week, but for now I'll take these even paced runs.
After work I went to the Nationals game and blogger meetup organized by Amanda. Unfortunately I didn't plan very well and forgot my camera so I don't have any photos. It was a lot of fun and great to meet some DC bloggers in person (and get introduced to some new blogs).

Bike 21 mi
I had plans for a 35 mile ride and short run (30ish minutes) for my first brick workout in several weeks, but that all got derailed when I crashed shortly after hitting the halfway point of my ride.
