Today is our 20th Wedding Anniversay and I'm in better shape than when I got married...

Today was a very busy day. Tomorrow, I'm hosting an office barbecue at my house and I'm taking Friday off, so I had a lot of things that needed to get done.
I was hoping to leave work early, but it didn't happen. After work I had to pick up some flowers, chocolates and a small gift for Alice, then go to Canadian Tire, take the family out for our Anniversary dinner, train and then do some work around the house in preparation for the barbecue.
I did it all! I don't know how.
I was able to do it all and put in a 90 minute tempo bike ride, which was my fastest training ride of the year. I ended up going just over 50 km at an average pace of 33 kph and I was able to just get home before the sun went down. I kept my heart rate under 139 bpm.
I ended up getting to bed at 12:30 am, but I got everything done and because of the party, I need to fit in tomorrows 55 minute tempo run at 6:45 am and I'm not a morning person.
The only negative to the day, was that after my training ride I noticed that my new DeSoto short were coming apart at the seam. Which is a shame, because I love those shorts, but I'm sure they will replace them, I've only worn them 6 times.
