The Sunday Report

One week until Musselman!!!  I'm getting super excited.  I rode the course with Mark on Friday, and we were lucky enough to meet two cyclists out on the course that totally pushed us!  It was kind of funny, because Mark and I both showed up in our Trakkers kits (not planned) and our Kestrel 4000s and then we met Jen and Michael in their matching kits and bikes! I don't think I have ever ridden so hard!  I was doing all I could to stay on the back of that train!

Thanks Jen and Michael!!

Sweaty me and Mark.

This was my last big week...I'm officially in taper mode!  I even have a day off tomorrow.  I plan on sleeping late, playing with the boys, getting some shopping done, and laying low.

Here are the numbers:

Swim:  1h 13m 3900 yds
Bike:  6h 19m 37s 107.59 mi
Run:  3h 15m 2s 19.26 mi

Total:  10h 47m 38s

Personally, I have had a tough week.  Do you ever go through certain times in your life when you just don't feel like you are where you should be?  Very vague and cryptic, I know, but that is not because I'm trying to be that way, but because it is shadowy even to me.  I've just been feeling a little blah about my parenting and about my kids and about my house.  I think I need to do a deep clean in more ways than one.  I'll start with picking up all the crap and the toys off the floor of my house, and then maybe I'll be able to see the problems a little more clearly.

Needless to say, I realize we all have moments like this, and I know they come for a reason, and I have faith that once I'm on the other side I will definitely be wiser.

Have a wonderful week!  Happy training!


  1. Nothing like a little impromptu team competition to get the pace up, eh?

  2. Great job on the ride. I love y'alls kits!


Woo-hoo!! I want to hear from you!
