So what's been going on?
Training last week:
6h 37m 53s
1h 52m 52s
Missing there is any swimming...the week was only so-so in getting things done. In addition to missing the swimming I missed a run too. It was some what of a crazy week in that Josh, my oldest son made the decision to join the Marines. There were meetings with recruiters, little sleep for me, and tests and physicals for him. He is signed up on the delayed entry program. He will not go for a year when he graduates high school. I'm a mix of emotions. Proud, scared, sad, excited for him, you name it I'm feeling it. And I've just come to the realization that this is our last year, the last summer for being together. Wow.
Food has been atrocious...you name it I've eaten it. A step on the scale this morning has scared me straight...things must change.
I've been reallly tired, I'm sure that is mostly attributed to the lack of sleep and just needing to catch up, as well as no chance to sleep in over the weekend, and by sleep in I mean anything past 6.
What's coming up?
I signed up for the Bolder Boulder 10k again this year. It's on Memorial day. Last year was my first year to do this race although it is in it's 33rd year and is a huge race, one of the largest I believe. The first wave leaves at 7:00am and the last 9:22. I'm excited to do this race again. It's a fairly challenging run with many hills and I'm pretty sure I'm in better running shape then last year so hope to do much better, but we will see.
A tri?!?!?! My first tri of the season is in like 2 1/2 weeks....um hello! Can you say open water swim!!! I am not ready to get in that water! If you recall this past weekend it was only 36 degrees when during much of my bike ride. Now granted this race isn't even a C race but more of a practice race, or even just a good workout. I got the entry free for volunteering at another tri so I guess there is always that chance that I could opt not to do it...however usually once signed up for something nothing will keep me from doing it, but wow it seems to have come fast!
Then just the weekend after that is the Denver Century, nervous about that. Feel a little better having the metric done but that's still a lot more miles and a few good climbs. I will need to get some miles in in the next few weeks.
So that's what's going on and what's coming up. Lot's of work to be done and hopefully lot's of fun to be had!
