6.2 not. 6.01 (8:54 pace) and athsma during run. I walked aod stations to dump water and allow hr to drop

Love Motor City, but was not excited to race, especially after falling.  Weather was very warm compared to last year, but the wind was lower so that was nice since the bike is on an island that notoriously gives you hell on one side, and heaven on the other.  :)  Once I got swimming, I lost the bad mood, and started to be excited to be racing.  I had a very nice swim.  The bike was good, and I didn't kill myself, but still got a new oly bike pr pace.  Finally broke 22!  The run was not good.  It was a new course as well, no shade like in years past ( but much shorter...6.2 instead of 6.6 and it really was only 6.05ish) and I had to use the inhaler about mid way.  I still chugged along, but my legs had no snap and my lungs were fussy.  My hr was where it should have been though.  I kept pushing.  Happy about that! 

Post race was weird (my whole team is different from last year) but fun as it is the social event of the season and I got to see lots of friends that I don't see much anymore.  Oh, and there was beer. :)  We had a little picnic too with the club and that was fun.  Lots of podium time for Team Green.  Hapy about my 5th oa female, and ag win (even though I will always be behind teammate and TEAM USA sister Cathleen! She stormed to 3oa!) 

Going to a sports pulmanary doc for proper inhalers as I learned post race what I am using is NOT good for athletes racing.  I don't need it often, but when I do, I don't want to use the wrong stuff!

Had a most excellent Beer Butt chicken for dinner with the family (Dave made dinner on fathers day!  I'm so mean!!!) and my usual date with Jogo in the  evening (who was a surprise spectator and grabbed my goggles for me when they went flying in transition!)  I have the best neighbor! :)

Crap.  Fell again, this time off Fiona in front of my teammates and coach.  Nice.  Smashed my same left hip, hurt my shoulder and right wrist. :(  Seriously?  Again?  Grrrr.   Swim went fine, but we ran into a bunch of folks at the beach and by the time we swam, I had to leave right afterwards.  New run course (but the island is super flat) and the ART doc was there, but I didn't have time to get worked on. Grrrr.  I did have a nice time with Dave at the grad party we went to.  I had some icecream I should have skipped, but hey...I had to pass on the beer! :)

Rest day...lol.  Picking up the wolverine today for the summer, Brian finishes his last day of Freshman year, appointment at the lake house to get the garage door fixed, water the plants and turn sprinklers back on, then off to Tyla's Kona Celebration!  Really looking forward to that! But I also have a million little things to accomplish in between! Wheeee!

comfy with two lids. :)

Was wide awake fro 3-4am.  Decided to do some visulization for Motor City this weekend.  Hips are still sore even though I took 600 mg ibuprofin.  Did breast stroke kick and about died.  Only did that once lol.  Talked with coach about my hips...she wants me to take one more day, roll, then ride again to see how it goes.  She thinks I may just have activated some muscles not used before.  Yeah, me thinks so!

 

Hoping to get some plans for Spain finalized today.  And Dave is officially quiting his job.  His plan is to leave for Spain and not return to work when we get home.  Lots for him to do before 7/24 if that is to take place.  Me, I'm just pooping my pants trying to figure out how to make ends meet with no paycheck.  Fun.  Not.

*so I took Fiona to the shop...last weekend were my first hard rides since late April when I had the fit tweaked...got my saddle raised up a bit to see if that helps.  Why.  Why did I mess with her?  Stupid saddles sores last season. Fingers crossed my hip issue is resolved.  Tomorrow I ride if the weather is good.*
