Swimming anyone???

Tonight I will brave the cold waters of the recently opened neighborhood outdoor pool in order to get a swim workout on the books. Just thinking about it gives me the chills! Once I get swimming though, I will forget about how cold the water is........I hope!

This weekend was busy, busy, busy. My parents were in town to come watch my lovely daughter perform all weekend long. She has been in a theater ensemble since September. This is a group of 22 kids (9-12 years of age) who worked along with a director, composer and writer to create an original musical. They finished it up with 4 shows, 3 of which were sold out, this weekend. The kids did great! I am a proud Mom! Despite having family in the house, I did get my training brick in on Saturday morning. I averaged just over 15 mph on the 23.5 mile bike ride and then we did a short run ~2 miles or so afterwards. I was a slow-poke on the run, but I got it done! And all felt good!

20 days to my first real triathlon! 26 days to the 65 hilly miles ride! June will be over before you know it!

While today is an awesome day in terms of weather, I do have one request for Mother Nature. Please do your Rain thing while I am sleeping or while I am at work. I really need to get my workouts in!! Thank you!


  1. But rain rocks!!!! You don't want it to rain????

    So glad you had a great time with your parents watching N in her musical! I bet it was awesome!!

    Swim...god I need to get my fat ass into the pool!

  2. I swam today-did you?? Did you swim woman?????? I was a fish today!

  3. I agree with Southbay Girl - running in the rain is AWESOME. Swimming..probably not so much. Your first tri is getting so close!! How exciting!

  4. I don't mind running in the rain. I'll even swim in the rain as long as it isnot a thunderstorm. I don't like to bike in the rain though!

  5. nice work! agree that biking in the rain = no good! congrats to your talented daughter!
