Civista Potomac Heritage Bicycle Tour with Amy (turtle girl) and Christy (doleicious).

from the website:

Riders will leave La Plata starting at 7:00 am and pass through historic Port Tobacco and climb a short hill to a spectacular view from Chapel Point. The longer routes continue along lightly travelled back roads with rest stops throughout. The century route then heads through Amish country to Leonardtown. Cyclists will return to La Plata to the Crossing at Casey Jones, where they will enjoy an after-ride party with food and entertainment.

(free) post race massages, too :)

spectated the Baltimore Marathon while running - so much fun :) then bought new shoes (see below :)) from Banana Republic and walked home from the mall.


today is supposed to be a rest day but I didn't swim last night and now I feel guilty Yell I was so flipping tired after work that I napped from 5:30-8:00... and then slept from 10:30 to 7:15 this morning. I suppose I really did need the sleep but now I feel behind in my training and I hate that !

this weekend:
tonight: rehearsal dinner for James' friend's wedding
tomorrow: 4500M swim, wedding
sunday: century ride (Civista Potomac Heritage Bicycle Tour)

5. love that a majority of my runs go by water.
6. "The Office" wedding is tomorrow ! swooooon.
7. white handlebar tape was a bad idea.
8. the race seems too soon
9. ... but also too far away.
10. I swam 4500 yards on Tuesday.
10a. tougher mentally than physically.
11. bought and am listening to
Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen.
12. it's getting darker earlier and that makes me unhappy.
13. I bought
ironplanner. looking forward to using it
14. along the lines of sentences that start with "I bought..."

desoto 400 mile shorts ^^

  • 15.00 miles

trainer time... tg for DVR'd Gossip Girl and Biggest Loser ;)

took off work today to tackle my to-do list. when your weekends consist of 6 hour bike rides (plus the hour and half drive to the shore, and the same drive home), the chores tend to pile up.

need to: straighten up the house, water plants, laundy, grocery shopping.
also, on the list, some fun stuff: hair cut, mani/pedi, shoes for a wedding this weekend (they need to be black and they need to be HIGH)

oh, and of course: 55 mi run, 1h 40m ride
