Stoney Creek ride zone 1 and 2...nice. It was windy as always.  Did the loop with the nature center(of course there was a headwind going up the long hill), but not the golf course...my legs had enough hills yesterday.  HR was too high on the run for the pace.  Me tired.  Soaked the legs in the drink before heading home.  Ahhhhhhh. :)

What a gorgeous day to be at the park!  Finally!  A Thursday where I could attend!  I met Trixie early as I had a 1.5 hour bike /1 hour brick run plus a 1 hour ows on my schedule.  I chose to bike more and run less because of the butt, which was a good choice I think. 

Man, I've forgotten how much energy it takes to climb the hill by the farm! And since we skipped Buno road, we headed straight up the climb to Maple beach!  I was flashing back to my first tri on that puppy!  Ranger was right...ILRA and Kensington had a good off season of training too! ;) 

The run was hard for me...it was awesome to have Miss Trixie to chase, cause I would not have run that fast on my own.  As usual the conversation was stimmulating and she saved my ass with her extra helmet! 

Then we headed to SMP to meet up with the Bt gang.  It was soooo good to train with everyone again!  The water was fine (except for the fisherman who tried to hook KL).  My shoulders and arms were pretty toasted from last nights 1000 yd of pulling, but still ok.  Focused on long and wide, moving more water.  It always seems harder to do that in open water, so that will be my focus moving forward outdoors. 

KL had a mechanical, so I bailed on my short recovery ride and picked the lady in distress up in my car.  :(  So bummed she had a mechanical on her new rig.  That puppy is light though!  Then when the gang got back, MSU Dan and Gdog fixed her flat on her car...(YES...she had a poopy night at ILRA!) and bunch of us went out for chow afterwards.  YUM!  FOOD!  I think Dan was a bit shocked at my clean plate club member status.  He needs to come out and play more...everybody else knows how much I dig my food! :)

Tired from working on house most of yesterday, working in my garden till ten at night and going back to the house for more today.  My arms were pooped from scrubbing windows and bathrooms even before the pool tonight. 

The course tonight was really hilly.  Not the best course for spinning after threshold.  Yea, 5.8 grade is kinda hard to push a 105 cadence on.  And I even have granny gear.  So a couple sets were just grinding along till the grade changed. 

Swimming was a bit weird...Dominoe was swimming in our lane with his feet bound,  swimming the length underwater doing the dolfin kick,then he was diving for bricks and running along the bottom of the pool...which is a weird thing to see when your used to just looking at the black line.  Then when I finished the last 500 I see a bunch of the guys including Domino and Tony (in his tshirt and shorts) walking on water...sorta.  They were running on mats that they'd tossed into the pool till wiping out.  Which if I'd had any darn energy left, I'd have tried.  It looked like fun!  Next time.

Damn it.  Tweaked the left glute/piri on the first ac, scrapped the rest and just ran endurance home.  Crap.  Every time I try to push myself my focked up vintage parts disagree.  I'm rearranging my schedule to push the next speedwork to Saturday.  Hopefully things will be feeling fine by then.  I guess I should be thankful it was only a hard tweak and not a blow out.   Big pouty face. :(

On the good news front, the house should be ready to go to market this weekend, and my partner already has an interested party in the property.  Sweet!  Now, it's up to Kaity and I to get it looking polished for the future buyers!  :)

Lunch got cancelled today, but I did get all my stuff burned onto a disc for the new prez.  Ahhhhh, the pressure of OATH is officially off my shoulders! :)

The reward for a good race?  Vo2max intervals.  Note to self...do not in after race euphoria ask my coach to help me to go harder/faster.  He will hear me and take it to heart.  Oy.  He was pushing me tonight and I was HURTING!  BADLY!  That was some serious discomfort on the Bianchi.  I don't think we've done these since March and they SUCK!  AND, we will be doing lots more in June and July.  AWESOME! 

I almost didn't get the pleasure of the full workout.  I forgot my shoes at home (still attached to the bike hanging in the garage...DOH!) but my Pamela came to the rescue!  Yesterday she lent me a cute top to wear over my bathing suit at the picnic, today she lent me her shoes to ride in (how exciting!  We wear the same size shoes!) and tonight she gave me shampoo at the pool cause all mine leaked out of my container.  Hmmm...I'm the mom, but she's been taking mighty good care of me lately! :) 

I wore my new kitty cat bathing suit to the pool.  FUN!  It was drill city tonight. After that butt kicking in the lab, that was fine by me. 

I got some very sad news today...my swim buddy won't be in the lab after June until the fall.  And he's not going to the pool in July either.  Super sad face!  :(  He has Muncie coming up, then travel with his wife.  I will miss my Scott swim buddy.  :( times 100!

Picked out some nice subway tiles in tumbled stone to do the back splash under the cabinets today.  It's going to look really nice in that kitchen.  Tomorrow it goes in. 

I have lunch with the director of orchestras at Troy High to pass on info to the new president.  I'm looking forward to handing off the last of my files and being officially done.  Then it's get that house cleaned up and on the market and plan the grad party final details.  :)

Saturday - June 12

Volunteered at the kids tri on Belle Isle today!  It was so much fun to cheer them on!  I was stationed on the bike course and the kids were working so hard!  Lots of them had their swim caps on UNDER their helmets!  HOTTTTT!  Poor things!  I loved seeing my teammate's daughter who is a tiny 7 year old spinning away on her bike with streamers and training wheels!  Too cute! :)  

Just like a big kids tri, there was a mechanical, a crash and stories after the finish.  A great time. 

After that, I was patiently waiting for registration to open up.  I had to pick up my packet and get out of there for graduation.  In my haste I forgot to correct my team status.  Ooops! :)

Graduation was long (as expected) but nice.  The principal is a great speaker and gave a funny, relevant speech.  After photos we had a very nice (but kind of late) dinner with my brother and sister in law.   Then we popped over to Jo and Bills to have a glass of wine to celebrate the girls graduation as they headed to the high school for the all night party.  Then home to pack for the race and picnic afterwards.  A very very full day...the kind of full that makes you smile all day!
