Taking advantage of the three day weekend...

Sometimes working in banking has its perks. Hello Columbus Day weekend! This could not have come at a better time. Those clothes are still in that chair waiting to be folded, I still need to catch up on my sleep and am thinking I will take care of both of those things on Monday. I may not even leave the house all day :)

I did get a little treat in the mail today from Amazon. B.o.B. recommended this book and who couldn't use a little IM motivation right about now? I am glued to IRONMAN LIVE tonight! While you are at it, check out B.O.B.'s post about endurance. So very true. I may not have any fast twitch muscles but I can endure so that has to count for something.

Oh... so my treat?



Maybe those clothes in the chair can wait.

Before I get to Monday, I am working through my last EPIC training weekend. I am climbing the mountain this week so I can work my way back down next week. This is the weekend I looked at the schedule and realized what I had committed to on October 29th. Yikes.

Today was a 100 mile ride followed by a three mile run. Those last few miles on the bike were a little rough, I was definitely ready to stop riding. I had also not run immediately following a ride that long. It is interesting how different your legs feel after 100 as opposed to even 60 or 70 miles.

Tomorrow is a 20 mile run and then I am done for the weekend! If you need me, I will be propped up on the couch...

Woo hoo..the end is in sight! I'm very thankful for this 3 day weekend, with way less excuse than you. :)

Awesome ride! And best of luck with the 20 mile run!

What'd you think of Kona today?! The men's race went as I expected, but the women's race was a complete roller coaster!

Enjoy the weekend!

Wow, I'm so impressed with the 100 miles on the bike that I may have missed other important things you said. That's amazing! Hope you are enjoying the book!

You're going to crush B2B if you keep that up. Good job!
