ez run with 5x '30 strides

Had a dream about a race last night. As is the usual theme, I overslept and missed part of the race. The new twist this time is that I fell asleep in transition (which was in a locker room) By the time I woke up, it was getting dark and every one was going out on the run. I skipped the swim, because they had taken the course down. I had a hard time finding my bike because it was getting dark. I couldn't decide if I was going to go out on the bike, go out on the run or just call it a day (or night)  Weird huh? Oh BunnyT and DjDavey were there, but didn't bother trying to wake me up.

Short run or rest today.

two days in a row was too much to expect I guess. So I'll ride tonight.  Forcast is looking a little toasty for Sunday. Hot and hills, that's quite a combo.

So I figured what the hell, instead of beating myself up about not training in the morning, I would just get up and do it. Rewarded with a beautiful morning and a spectacular sunrise. As I found myself grousing about the fact that I haven't done this earlier, I said you can only do something about today...and here you are. Thus a new blog title was born.

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

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.
