I came back from my ride just in time for a hot shower, coffee, and the women's cycling on the Olympics. Damn, those women. So tough and strong.
Half Ironman training is going well. After my 50 miler I felt awesome and am sore, but only in that really good way. I'm super lucky to have so many great people in my life to train with. This week I did both my swims with the masters group, two 6 mile runs with my friend Casey, an 8 miler with my friend Jess, and my long ride with Suzanne. Training partners make all the difference.
5 weeks until the race. I have a ways to go, but watching the Olympics is helping keep me inspired. I can't get enough, especially of the swimming, and extra especially of Ryan Lochte.
It's the Olympics' fault that I'm up to almost 11 and my alarm is set for 4:30 to swim. Yikes.
