This was an exercise in willpower.

So much juggling and preparation. Got home late last night, so it was physically impossible for me to drag this ass out of bed to do anything. I have to work all day (am thinking of taking some personal time to get out an hour early) and then race home, walk for an hour, get all my crap together and drive myself and my bike and all my crap up to Trudy's house. Tomorrow we're getting up at the crack of doom to drive to Madison. Riding the IMWI course, T-walk, and then driving home. Promises to be an exhausting day, I'm sure. Thursday back to work! Friday, I'm off for the holiday and I am hoping to sleep IN.


5:48 PM: And I'm still at work. I should just move in.


Some photos from last night:

Chris shaved his beard! Who knew there was a face under all that hair?

Bono on the catwalk.

Pretty cool screen thing they had set up.

Sunday Bloody Sunday

 

So... let's try to figure out how this week is going to work. 

Monday -- U2 Concert/Rest. Taking the train in the AM, and concert goes late.
Tuesday -- Walk AM/Swim PM
Wednesday -- 2 loops IMWI (long bike 80 miles)
Thursday -- AM walk/PM easy bike
Friday -- LONG WALK
Saturday -- Joliet Ride? 62 miles?
Sunday -- Swim? Ride? Walk? Dunno. 

List 'em up, cross 'em off! 


It's so weird. It's raining. Again.

Makeitstopmakeitstopmakeitstop! A little sun would be nice.

  • Health data: Hours slept: 8
Bike
  • 5h 24m 27s
  • 100.83 miles
  • 18.79 Mi/hr

Flat. Fast. Fun. Quite the opposite of last weekends adventure. There are different kinds of bike riding, of course, and I think I prefer to go as fast as possible on a flat course... rather than dragging my tired old body up and over a bunch of hills.

The plan was for Chris to let me draft going as fast as possible for as long as possible and then I was on my own. Chris faltered around mile 60-65, then exploded around mile 80. I stuck with him til mile 90 or so when he told me to GO GO GO!

So I went went went, and finished strong. Great pace for 100 miles. Favorable winds, flat course, and I was feeling the love.

Desperately stressful days at work. I'm so close to quitting it's unprecedented. 

Blew off today's walk in favor of sleeping in. We had plans to visit our friends Brant and Aly in the city... go see the FLW Robie house, get lunch and just hang around with them all day. We did some walking. Not as much as I should have, but we did some.

Taking today as my recovery day. Skipping the AM SHORT OPTIONAL WALK and I have a plan to swim tomorrow morning. Wish I could find an outdoor pool! But It's not likely I'd be able to swim outside anyway... the way it's been raining around here lately.

IF I WERE THIS CHICK, I'D BE HAVING AN AWESOME SUMMER!
