Beaver Creek-Martha's Chapel-Carpenter Firestation

Nice ride. It was a lot less humid tonight than it was last night but a bit breezier. The lake was pretty choppy (for Jordan) when I was in that area.

I hate that the days are noticeably shorter.

√ Ride tonight!

Loganberry break in day 4 - four hours.  Yup, rockin' the running shoes with a skirt look for half a day!

It's not just about changing that flat any more

I gave Kevin one last chance to have me not sign up for another 140.6.  I figured that since I am to the really tired phase of training for B2B, I would get an honest answer.  He said to go for it.  What a guy! 

Don't say anything to yourself that you wouldn't say to a friend.

Early morning walk with Emma. She is loving the temperature!

Two months until B2B!

Started to break in my new running shoes (Brooks Ghost 5 - loganberry).  Since getting the orthotics, it seems to be important to do an extended break in whereas before it was like, lace 'em up and go.  I'm wearing them for one hour today.

Took care of Hurricanes package and seat selection.  I wanted section 114 but Kevin wanted 113 so we went with 113 on the 114 side.

Nice run! Overall, I'm really pleased with this run. I love this route and that helps. The cooler temperatures really helped! It was 66 when I left home on the bike this morning and 74 when I was done with the run.

So... Today I wore "Desoto 2013 One Size Smaller" tri shorts.  And they fit very similarly to yesterday's "Desoto 2011 #2" shorts.  

It sounds like the dude at Desoto did not know what the heck he was talking about when I asked if the sizing had changed.  Sadly, both Lisa and Yanti were caught by this issue as well.  I got the shorts (both pair) from SwimOutlet.  I wonder if I can talk them into taking them back or get Desoto to help me out some since they gave me bad information to work with.  

Nutella = recovery food!

Short run off the bike

I have on DeSoto 2011 #2 shorts. No chafing.

Regarding Kevin's car -- battery dead dead dead.  Could not even be jumped.  Replacing it did the trick though.  What happened is he went to Brevard to camp and mountain bike.  He got up this morning, had breakfast, loaded his gear to go to DuPont and the car would not start.  Someone in the campground tried to jump him but no go.  He called AAA and they took care of him.  He ended up doing afternoon/evening mountain biking instead of morning mountain biking.

Regarding Emma -- she seems fine now.  I went ahead and gave her dinner and I'm keeping a close eye on her.

I decided to go to the pool at sit on a chaise lounge and read my book. In order to justify this, I did a bit of swimming. ;-)

Walk with Emma

Today's plans include taking Emma for a walk sometime this morning and reading my book.  I thought about taking out my Cx bike today but decided that with my long ride tomorrow, that might not be the best plan ever so I will probably take a pass on that.
