OWS Pewaukee

So my goal for August is to pass my yearly totals from last year for bike and swim, with my year to date total for this year.  Not a huge accomplishment, because I had a pretty low volume year last year, but still something to be proud of I guess.

Depending on weather, either a rest day or short swim at Pewaukee.

UPDATE Took the family over to Pewaukee for the OWS. Strong winds made for some rough swimming. Can't say I enjoyed it that much, but practice in chop is always a skill that can come in handy.

Hwy E to K to Emerald to K and back to E

So I signed up for Camp Whitcomb-Mason yesterday and after riding part of the course today, I have only one thing to say: What the hell was I thinking? The trip to and from course was filled with some hilly goodness too.  Bad news: I am expecting to have my ass handed to me next weekend. Good news: I think I found the answer as to how to improve my bike performance next season.  Gorgeous afternoon for a ride.

Park, trail & road
splits: 9:05, 9:20, 10:01 (lost in the swamp lands) 9:36 (ok, I think I found my way out), 9:14,9:29, 8:34

Well as Deanna says, pick up the pieces and train. No beautiful sunny day today, but overcast and drizzly was actual perfect for today. After swim, headed out for run right from park, did it to get some new scenery (not counting the race I just did here on Sunday ;)) Started out running through the park, first to BunnyT's favorite fishing pier (see his race report), then through the camp grounds, then across the street to a nature trail that I got lost on and almost fell in a river. It was awesome! After that excitement headed out to the road.

Would have been a glorious morning for something this morning. :(  Oh well there is always this afternoon. Major benefit to being self-employed: boss doesn't care if I duck out early for a bike ride.  Have a great weekend!

UPDATE: yeah that worked well. perfect day: no training. big bummer.

One of my major disappointments this summer is my lack of ability to get up early morning to train (or not that early) Sleep is not that good and that is contributing, but still, I am missing on some great opportunities. Since I missed one this morning, I may have missed any chance of a work out today.  ( with something going on tonight)

UPDATE: was able to sneak in this run. Book end to yesterday's run, only faster.

Around some previously undiscovered parts of Pewaukee

I see a run in my future. Can you see it too?

UPDATE: I had actually envisioned something about twice as long. This is what I could squeeze in before I had to pick up my daughter from Piano lessons. Still a beautiful night for a run.

found a few hills, some by accident

Well enough of basking in a good result, time to move on to the next challenge. The next challenge I believe is going to be Camp Whitcomb-Mason. This means no Oshkosh, which I have done for 4 years in a row. A little bummed because it is always one of my favorites. However family schedule would not really work with Oshkosh. Kids leave for camp on that Sunday afternoon and being closer to home makes a lot more sense.  Plus I will get a ringside seat to the big Scooby/Benson show down.

Most likely a bike tonight...probably with some hills.

UPDATE: saw none other than Terry Labinski out on this ride. He even returned my wave.  Odd thing? He was wearing his team jersey. Should I be wearing the Donkey colors at all times?
