Another week is gone. This was another toughie, mostly because of the crazy weather we have been having in Syracuse. On Tuesday, it took me 2.5 hours to get to Ithaca - a drive that would normally take me 1.5 hours. Tuesday night we were all prepared for the apocalypse. Schools were cancelled or delayed (including Ithaca college which was delayed until 12) because of the ice. I ventured out in Ithaca around 10...and the roads were fine.
Then last night I turned around after 15 miles because it was just too dangerous to be on the road. I try really hard to not complain about the weather because complaining never helps it go away. I live in a place that is going to get snow and a lot of it, so I try really hard to embrace it. It's just when it starts to get in the way of regular and safe driving, I start to long for spring. And when I say long, I mean counting down the days. Of course, in Syracuse it could snow in May, so you never really know.

My flute quartet, Dolce Flutes, was recently featured in a new publication called Syracuse Woman Magazine. You can read the article here on page 16. Since I don't write too often at Trimommylife about my work as a flutist, I thought some of you might like to check it out.
And training. Coach Mary keeps gently reminding me that I am currently training for an olympic distance race (Rev3Tri Quassy - don't miss out!), so it's okay that I'm not doing huge volumes of training right now. I know this, but I still feel like I should be doing more. Although, I say I want more, I still didn't hit 100% of my workouts, so maybe I should just shut my mouth and get the work I'm supposed to do done. Hmmm...novel idea!
Here are the numbers:
Swim: 1h 44m 5300 yds
Bike: 5h 4m 57s 71.79 mi on the trainer
Run: 1h 32m 7s 9.43 mi mostly outside - I embrace winter...
TRX/Movement Prep: 50m
Total: 9h 11m 04s
