Dirty Girl is gone ahead of me, blazing a trail west. She's sandwiched between a P3 and a P4. I hope she doesn't pick up any carbon habits.
I'm having some kind of weird allergic reaction to something. It started yesterday with my eye (can't get contacts in this morning). I started to feel sluggish at around 8 pm and just wanted to sleep by 9. Had a crappy sleep - had to get up and pee about 4 times and my right eye was just puffy and yuck this morning. Nothing pink or festering, just puffy. And I feel kinda bloaty. I guess I'm not swimming at lunch time. Just as well, it is another craptaculous day out there!

Went home at lunch time because of the storm and returned to work by car. It is now raging out there. You know, we can't have perfect weather everyday this summer.

Yikes. It is getting to be that you can't take a step (or stroke) around here without running into Ironmen, and soon to be Ironmen.
I do like this community. Shame about the crappy weather.

Just swimming. Focus on technique and consistent speed.

Nice comfortable run around the lakes half on trails. Felt great.
Still having some chafing issues on my ripples and under my arm. Looks like I'm going to have to use the Astrolube.

Hmmm. Another glorious day...no wait, I was looking at the tv screen, not the window. :(

Windy ride, as per training ride.
Felt strong and confident.
Got an offer today (from the World Champion) to drive Dirty Girl to IMC...I'm kinda on the fence. But I am really touched by his kindness.

 Another shitaculous day on the weather front. 9C this morning.

 Lazy day. Hanging out with family, mother-in-law cleaning up basement to get ready for Bopper to do some drywalling.
Was thinking about a quick run, but then the rain started again!

Played chicken with the weather gods and sprinted to the weigh station and back.
Very high cadence for most of the trip (105rpm) Some swirling wind out there. Very dark, scary clouds.
Dirty Girl is filthy from the wet on the ground.

Walking around the lake at a leisurely pace checking out the Dragon Boat races. About 8k total.

Ahhhhh...Sometimes doing nothing is so stress free...i hope I can find some time to ride today though.

Absolutely crappy weather, but dry.
Killer headwind on way back and I really didn't feel like riding!
Did Lumsden hill and the other tough hill on the secondary road.
Had to pee like crazy! Stopped 4 times!!
one granola bar, one Hammer bar one Powergel with caf. and one bottle with weak electrolyte powder. Plus one other water.

Got it done!
