I'm without words.  There will be a huge hole in my life from now on.

No swim today at St. A's. So they started us Time Trial Style...at the entrance to transition. Had a good bike split today, considering the wind and the fact that (other than today) I've only biked 13 miles this month!! Guess those spin classes are paying off a bit.

I was 110th of 327 on the bike...gee...about top third...odd for me on the bike.

  • 42m 13s
  • 6.20 miles
  • 06m 49s /Mi

Pretty good run. Not the most wonderful conditions but still, my first ever sub-7 average for an Oly run. I'm happy about that.

I was 33rd of 327 on this one. Top ten percent. I guess I could be a little faster here.

Overall, I was 60th of 327 in Age Group, and 345 of 3650 in the race. WOOT!! That puts me at 9.4 percent overall, and 18.6 percent in age group...I'm cool with that since I'm now in 35-39 and I figured I'd be way back in the pack since I haven't really trained.

Bumpy and choppy but I got thru it. Slow, but I wanted to make sure I was riding the waves correctly.

  • 10m

Did a little variety of stuff at Anytime Fitness to try out their equipment. Even swung a kettlebell a few times (just thrilled that they have 'em there!).

Went to spin class tonight, I needed to destress a bit. It definitely helped to be able to sweat out some stress.

  • 25m

Flat bench press (2x40#) superset with pushups
12 press/24 pushups, 10 press/20 pushups, 8 press/16 pushups

Did some chest work while I was waiting for the spin class to start.

This could very well be Terri's last day.  I'm not exactly sure how to deal with that knowledge.  The weirdest thing is, I haven't "FELT" anything big yet...it's like my emotions are waiting for something before they surface.  I haven't even thought much about all of it.  How weird is that?  I think I've been burying myself in workouts and in being supportive of everyone else, and maybe that's why I'm not freaking out yet? 

I left work early today so I could get over here to be as much support as possible.  The family is here so there is plenty of support for all of us.  I don't really have any more updates than that, but I guess I will keep everyone as informed as I can.  Keep the prayers coming.

Spin Class - 1 hour of hills and sprints...OUCH!! At least I know my bike fitness is still kinda decent. We'll see how that translates to Sunday at St. A's.

  • 02m 38s
  • 200.00 yards
  • 01m 19s /100 yards

Pete and I tried out our new ZOOT speedsuits that we may have to use on Sunday for St. A's instead of wetsuits. We just did a few 50's and a 100 to see what it felt like. It was cool.

  • 40m

I am crazy.  I worked out FOUR TIMES today.

We walked from the hotel to the T, and lots of walking between stops and at the airport. Good to get the legs movin again. Feelin good today.

1055 - Legs are good today, no soreness.  Foot hurts a bit though, in the same places it hurt me after Umstead.  I think I may have some slight injury there.  But I'll keep an eye on it and just bike and swim this week, no running til Sunday.  I can't believe St. A's is in 5 days!  I guess that's what having a million events in a row does.

So...I'm really excited about coming back to Boston next year and trying to break this 3:12.  The course wasn't nearly as difficult as I thought it'd be.  I ran it so conservatively, thinking the entire time I'm gonna use up my energy and having nothing left for Heartbreak Hill.  I could have punched it up a notch or two and still have been okay.  Oh yeah and...heartbreak hill? Notsomuch. I didn't even know I ran it until someone told me at the top.  It wasn't even half as long or half as steep as the long gradual hill at Mile 4 at Umstead.  So I just ran up it thinking "the big one has to be right after this".  And then these guys were at the side of the road saying "YOU JUST DID HEARTBREAK HILL, YOU ARE AWESOME!"  I was like "that's it???".  Hmmph.

OK so the coolest thing just happened!  Brian just got a call that we won a free vacation in a drawing we entered at Berryism last month.  How funny is that.  And...it's a cruise!!!  4 days, 3 nights, no gimmicks, no timeshare, nothin...just a free cruise!
