Hi friends! :) Thanks for all the advice about triathlon clothing. Megâ€™s suggestion to wear a sports bra and string bikini bottoms under my wetsuit (thus allowing me to put on dry bike shorts in T1 and pull my bathing suit off without flashing anyone) was GENIUS! :) I think thatâ€™s what Iâ€™ll do.
Megan did 3.0 miles or so with us, and Kelly and I ran 7.0 in total.
We got lost again! Thank goodness for the navigation feature on the Garmin 305! I love having an automatic map of the path weâ€™ve traveled â€“ the â€œreturn to startâ€ feature is super helpful when youâ€™re in the middle of a forest and have no idea which way to go!
We did 7.0 miles in 1:21, which included a lot of standing, staring, and walking back and forth down the wrong paths to find our way back! Also a LOT of slogging through the sand. When we were actually running, Kelly and I maintained a really great pace of 9:30 to 10:30.
Before my run, I had Chobani pineapple and 1/2 cup granola:
And afterwards, I had a PB and jelly whole wheat bagel with a banana.
Edited to add: Iâ€™m currently eating a huge bowl of cereal. That run jacked up my appetite.
Weâ€™re going out to CELEBRATE â€“ the Husband passed his board exam! Weâ€™re going to go bowling, and that means a beer (or two) and curly fries! Wahoo. 🙂
The Hus says thanks for all the well-wishes on his boards (I always read them to him) â€“ only two more to go + graduation, and then he can get his license to practice acupuncture and Oriental medicine!
Off to bowl 100â€™s! 🙂 🙂 🙂
