Last week I got a run in on Tuesday morning.
Tuesday when I got home from work it wasn't raining so I went for a short bike ride.
Wednesday I swam. I'm pretty sure this is the first & last triathlon I do. I don't like the swimming. AT ALL. It's just not my thing. I know I've said that before but I completely underestimated just how hard it is. The goal at this point is to finish the swim without using a ton of energy so that I can do well on the bike & run. Those are definitely my strengths.
Thursday I ran. I've just been sticking to 3.1 mi. for the time being. Once the Tri is over I plan to start increasing mileage on the weekends.
I've kept up with the 30 Day Challenge. This month is harder than last. LOTS of squats!
Friday after work I brought my bike in for my fitting. I didn't know what this entailed but I'm really glad I shaved my legs. They did some measuring & poking & prodding on my knees & hips. I didn't have any complaints & not much feedback to give because I've been comfortable on my bike. They like you to ride for 4-6 weeks before the fitting so they can work on anything you're having problems with. I bought a "computer" as they call it which is basically just a speedometer, tripometer & odometer.
Friday night a bunch of us went to Caliente as usual.
Saturday Cindy & I swam. It wasn't a very good swim for me but I did it. Our niece is in town from Texas so Dean's mom brought her & some of the cousins to swim.
Last week was Restaurant Week in Baton Rouge. A bunch of different restaurants participate & it's a lot of 3 course meals anywhere from $15-$35 per person. We went to Portico Saturday night.
My appetizer was shrimp & grits. I was a little surprised when I saw it.
Grilled red fish with shrimp & mac & cheese. Delicious!!! I had blueberry bread pudding for dessert which I didn't get a picture of.
Sunday morning Cindy & I were going on a bike ride.
12 mi. in 45:23. Not bad at all! Especially considering I got confused & was in the toughest gear I could be in the first half of the ride. I'm curious to see how the ride goes during the race. These training rides are done on the levee & that involves a couple of really steep hills. The race is flat. Thank goodness! After the ride I ran.
Later in the day my friends Allison & Joey brought their little boy to swim. We had burgers & just hung out. It was a nice afternoon.
Sooo, I guess I'm caught up. Saturday is the race so there will be some rest this week.
