becoming a happy adult in a sunny sustainable world.
Well. This week was a true week of ups and downs in training. I lost count of the number of times I used the F word in my TrainingPeaks post-workout notes. I wish my emotions didn’t depend so much on having good workouts; but, lately, in the wake of #Eaglemanfail, I’ve been letting bad workouts get the best of me. There were a couple of low points this week, so lets just get the crap out of the way:
But, in all of my bitching…I had a couple breakthroughs:
And a couple of nice rides, one on the trainer with Scoutty-poo watching the team time trails of the Tour de France (btw, trainer + the tour = pure happiness).
And a ride that alternated between longhorns…
And rain. Somehow yesterday, while I rode in the rain for two hours, I got sunburned. WTF. Not only was it raining, but I’m Greek. I’m not supposed to burn!!! Darn you, faulty mediterranean skin! My face when I realized TWC lied to me about 0% chance of rain:
Fortunately, after a rough start to the week, I ended the week on a high note (could also be the glass of wine I drank and the puppy kisses I got Sunday night while watching Despicable Me).
The week topped off with:
Week T-16 6/1/13 – 6/7/13
Next week is a recovery/testing week and I’m actually *excited* to see where I am…at least with my swimming…I expect more of the same with bike and run.
A public defender super heroine by day, I am a cupcake baker extraordinaire by night. And come weekend, I am an IronPerson. I deal with an NPR addiction daily and I dream of one day having Carl Kasell on my answering machine. I strive to be the best fur-mommy I can be, and when I have time, I'm learning to be a grownup.
