Did some cycling intervals at home.
Wednesday, Apr 22nd:
7.5 mile bike ride up to the beginnings of the Minuteman Trail.
Actually, I accidentally started on the wrong trail, but it didn’t matter because a minute later, my chain popped off!
At first, I was trying to open the chain and put it back on, but I couldn’t figure out how. By shifting gears I managed to get it around my smaller gear in the front. I think the problem may have been an “in-between” front derailleur setting that I find useful when using my hardest back gear.
Just in case, I set the bike to a middle-of-the-road gear and kept it there on the ride back home.

I usually take Wednesday off, but since I rode then, I used Thursday to take my bike into the shop.
Friday, April 24th:
Went to the pool around 10pm and did some “intervals.” I use quotes since I only lasted for about three of them… I then filled out the rest of a 20min workout with continuous swimming at a slow pace.

Sunday, April 26th:
Did a 2.6 mile run at a relatively easy pace. By my calculations (my Garmin wasn’t working again…) it was 8:30 miles. I can tell that I’m in better shape now, actually, the only problem is that I need to pace myself with these runs so I don’t exacerbate my shin splints.
