I'm expecting a call today or tomorrow to tell me that my new bike has arrived at the bike shop.
Talk about anxious for the phone call.   NO PHONE CALL TODAY  Frown

Last night some friends of mine asked if I wanted to IM Wisconsin 2008 with them.  They are thinking about signing up.  They have done IM Canada before, but want to do one that is closer to home.  I don't know what's crazier:  The fact that they asked me or the fact I am thinking about it.  That would require a very dedicated 5 month training program starting in April 08.   Hmmm........  I guess I don't have to decide until September.  It's still something to think about.

Hiking the trails with the dogs.

We only were away from the chickens for 2 days, but I swear when we got home they had gotten a LOT bigger.  I was really surprised.  They are drinking a LOT of water now.  I think we need another waterer.  I'll likely get one today.

The weather was cool, but hey it wasn't raining!

Here's a picture of what I mean by pulling the dogs in the trailer.  The dogs + trailer = 140lbs.
It makes hill climbs really fun!

Z2 bike

  • 1h 15m
  • 7.78 miles
  • 09m 38s /Mi

Z2 run. Little trouble keeping HR down in Z2, I kept wanting to push the pace a bit faster. Did a few 8:30m/mile before realizing I should slow down. The faster miles felt really good though. That's a good sign for my upcoming 10 mile run.

  • 30m
  • 1500.00 meters
  • 02m /100 meters

Easy swim.
WU: 500
MS: 500 pull w/paddles.
10x50 on 20" rest.
Swim easy and focus on form.

I stayed out too late last night.  I'm a bit tired today.
Tonight is a long training night, but it may get cut a bit short as I prepare for leaving to go camping tomorrow.

I forgot to mention this on Tuesday:
During my bike ride on Tuesday the 4 of us were cycling past Camlachie Golf Club on our way to OilHeritage road.  There are a few houses to pass along the way.  One on the south side had a large black lab come running out as us cyclists.  I was very nearly taken out broadside by this dog, I sprinted at the last minute as he came on to the pavement just behind me.  He was moving so fast that he skidded almost all the way across the pavement trying to turn to come after us.  I wasn't the last rider in line, the rider behind me had to brake hard to avoid hitting the dog, then sprint like mad to get away from him.  It wasn't a pretty situation.  We ride this route every Tuesday and haven't seen this dog before.  It wasn't a puppy, so I assume it's not usually outside.  If we see it again I will stop to talk to the owner as this was a really dangerous situation.  Just what I need: to be travelling 30kph down the road and get broadsided by a 100lb lab running full speed.  Not a pretty thought.

The bike shop called today.  My P2C should arrive at the shop the middle of next week, and I can get the final fit done on Saturday or Sunday may 19 or 20.   This is excellent news!
