It was the fifth of six events. Our final event is in Chapel Hill at the beginning of October, and itâ€™s already sold out. I canâ€™t believe how fast the season wentâ€¦
It was a busy week. I did a LOT of swimming. Towards the weekend, I started to get a bit sick and ended up with some chest congestion. I think Henry is giving me gym childcare germs, except it appears he has an excellent immune system and is apparently impervious to the same sicknesses. So, Friday + Saturday werenâ€™t as great as Iâ€™d like, butâ€¦ what can you do? Besides move onwards and upwards this week?
Monday: 1000 yard swim
Tuesday: 2200 yard swim + 40 minute run
Wednesday: 45 minute bike + 1:15 minute run
Thursday: 2500 yard swim
Friday: 750 yard swim, and then I got kicked out of the pool because the gym closed early (grrr!)
Saturday: 1 hour bike
Sunday: 2:30 minute bike + 23 minute run
Total: 6450 yards of swimming (wow! 3.7 miles!), 14 miles of running (give or take), 4:15 hours of biking
On Sunday, I worked at the race, and then I changed clothes at noon and did my own workout. That was nice because I got to ride around some quiet, rural streets.
Verdict on the new bike? I LOVE IT.
I leave you with this too-cute photo of Henry and Kristien dressed in the Manchester United kits.
Too bad the intense adorableness didnâ€™t help the team win their game!
