Well, the checks are written for IMLP Community Fund slot. All I have to do is drop them in the mail. Why is my stomach turning over spending this much money on a race. I am justifying it by not having to buy 4 extra plane tickets to bring the family to a different race. Sounds good, right? :)

4:00 PM - The checks are in an Express Mail envelope heading to Boulder, Co. If it's in the cards that I get in, I'll hear in 7-10 days. I have done all I can do. :) Fingers are crossed!!

Nice swim after work. It was raining when I started and the sun was coming out when I was finishing. I had the whole lake to myself. I need to swim more.

Can I please have 28 hour days for the next 4 weeks?

It was hard to get out of bed this morning. Storms came through last night and I had to get the horses in around 11:30. The alarm went off at 4:45, ugh!!

Planned workout: [Take this run off road. Stretch ankles well before. Run the middle 15' strong & confident. Keep breathing relaxed.]

At 5am I couldn't find any trails so I just ran miles 3 and 4 "strong & confident". The rest easy.

Bike #1
  • 30m
  • 9.50 miles
  • 19.00 Mi/hr

Warm up for 10 mi TT on Rt 96. Did a few spin-ups and a few 30 sec hard efforts to get the legs going.

Bike #2
  • 22m 42s
  • 10.00 miles
  • 26.43 Mi/hr

Probably sat around a little too long before the start. HR was back down to resting before my start and my legs were burning on the way out. It was a fairly flat course with a few subtle hills, just enough to drop the speed a couple notches. After the turnaround I got into a pretty good groove and my legs were feeling better. Then I swallowed 2 flies and was trying to get them up out of my trachea and down my esophagus where they belong.

I ended up taking 2nd place overall. I think the newcomer raised some eyebrows. :)

Bike #3

  • 4.50 miles

I have not had the chance to get my rides in. I feel like I am letting my challenge team down but I just plain bit off more than I can chew. Missing yesterday's long ride was a bummer. I have a TT scheduled for tomorrow and a long ride this weekend but it just won't be enough.

I never seem to bite off more than I can chew when it comes to food. :) Go figure.

:( Had planned a 120 mile ride today and the stars just never lined up. Way too much on the plate then had a friend ask if I could help with a load of hay. Now I'm sitting here tracking IMLP. Ugh!!

You do what you can when you can and keep smiling!! :) As Mr Incredible would say......... "I still got time!!"

Great run this morning with Dave Christian. Held a very comfortable 8:00 pace and only had two throne stops!One was actually in a real bathroom with a real toilet. :)

Nutrition was good. 24 oz of water, 6 gels and 20 oz of Gatorade Endurance.

5K for Christine as a brick. I am sorry I never got a chance to meet her. She sounds like she was full of life and radiated her positive energy to all she came in contact with. I'll miss you and I never even met you Christine!!
