Long Weekend Bliss

#waffles, steaks on the girl, boulder training day, registrations, and a bike-run, bike-run, bike-run afternoon

EK-14 Boulder Edition

This was a top-secret training session with coach Eric Kenney and several other athletes up at Rally Sport in Boulder, CO.
I'd tell you the details, but that defeats the purpose of top-secret. But, I can tell you that it was the best possible way to spend Saturday morning.After a nice lunch I met up with my beloved JK, which also makes Boulder days the best : )

Did you know?

1. Flamingos are pink because they eat shrimp.
2. There are 13 Land Before Time movies. How on earth does that happen? (Talk about ruining a good thing)
3. Air Jordans account for more than 50% of the global shoe market
4. Peanut Butter cheerios exist. And they are AWESOME.
5. Spandex was invented in 1959. And it wasn't sexy then either.
6. The first bicycle race is believed to have been a 1,200 meter race on May 31st 1868 in Paris.

Triple Brick & BBQ Love

"Let's stop at Criterium Bicycles on the way up to Cherry Creek today. It'll be super fast"
90 minutes, and half a paycheck later......we were on the road!!

Spent the afternoon switching back and forth from threshold bike intervals to quick brick runs. Back and forth. Back and forth.
It was awesome. Fought a huge head wind for most of the training session which is frustrating and exciting all at the same time.
Justin did some high quality grilling while I cooled down and we had a perfect lake-side steak dinner. : )


This encompasses triathletes pretty well....

"This is carbon right?"
"It's just a 'b' race, you know, a training race"
"I just really need to replace my electrolytes right now"

Other Updates

You know what sucks? Mis-reading a race date.
Thinking and planning a travel race under the impression that race day is SUNDAY, and then finding out it is Saturday. Yeah, that sucks.

Got an email the other day from Bill Burnett, Clermonts race director. There is a special offer for the draft legal athletes to 'double up' and also race in the age group race on Sunday. His email was asking if I would like to race back to back. Two days, two races.....Is that really even a question?
