Bike Marshall at T-Rex race, cheering my head off and cowbelling for the bikers!

Track work was tough.  I thought I'd wake up early and get it done, but I chose to roll over and sleep.  HOT.  Really really HOT!  Oy! 

 

John picked me up at about 2:45 to head to the race.  Walked to the fabulous Trout lake and got in one out and back.  Changed and checked in to volunteer.  Had a blast ringing my cowbell (got 2 blisters tho. Boooo) and cheering my teammates, friends and everybody else.  They need to make some adjustments to the area we marshalled.  Very dangerous.  Need at least one more volunteer at that station. 

Got to see Loren and Diane W finish, chat up Dave, Steve, Julie, E, and Smoak!  A nice surprise was Flirt at the transition area...he was volunteering too! We helped break down and hit the road about 9:10.  Tired and sweaty and need to hit the hay!

Hard work in the lab today.  Hot as hell...literally.  I decided to do my TH intervals inside so there was no fluffing about.  I may even do my long ride and brick indoors.  Not that I want to, but I have paid for the lab,and if I end up riding alone, I might as well. 

Booked transport for the bikes back to the shop for Steve, Joanna and myself today.  Damn,this sport is pricey! 

Thursday I'm off to Grand Rapids to invest in my daughters bass career.  New bow...big bucks.  Sigh.

Bike

4 loops. I adjusted data to match course info,but it was short (of course) Low winds

Run
  • 54m 05s
  • 6.20 miles
  • 08m 43s /Mi

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! :)

But I also have a million little things to accomplish in between! Wheeee!

Swim felt good and it wasCHILLY!  Steamy pool this am. I kind of like that.  Rode afterwards...recovery spin.  Lots of bunnies and birds on the trail.  Oh, and old people.  Lots of old people walking.  I want to be the old lady running and riding.  Thats my goal! :)
