GROW



Today's Boot Camp word is "grow." This is at Grandma's house. Her grandkid brag wall. One of those little dudes graduates tomorrow!

I am training for the ChelanMan Triathlon again this year. Last year was my first time and it went pretty well. I was reviewing my notes (what few I kept) and it looks like I did the same thing: waited until the 6 week mark to get going! Shame on me. It would be so much better if I just trained year round. Not only that, once spring and bathing suit weather roll around I wouldn't look at myself and go ... "Really? How did you let yourself get here?" But its kind of like the school year belongs to the kids and their activities and the summer is when I can take care of me. Hmmm, I guess we need some balance don't we?

Here's what I have done this week:
Monday: ran in a very strong wind from home. The course is a hilly 3 miles. I walked at least half of it.
Tuesday: I swam. I was at the pool for 30-40 minutes maybe, and I ran into a friend and we talked tri, but I know I covered the distance of the swim and then some.
Wednesday: that stupid bike ride and then a walk up the hill. The ride was actually good, an easy ride around the loop - but it was windy again so the first half of the ride was into the wind. That's gotta count for something!
Tonite is yoga night.
Friday I am not sure what will work out. Bubba gets out of school at 11 and Miss I will be home all day with me. After My Honey gets off work we are heading out of town for a concert at the Gorge. So ... Maybe I will call it my rest day.
