FRIDAY-- I had the day off from work because of a meeting that I was attending on Saturday. My plan A was to go to Waterfall Glen and ride my mountain bike for a couple of 10 mile loops. Of course the weatherman had other ideas-thunderstorms. Plan B went in to action which meant a 45 min swim followed by a 1 hour spin. In the afternoon I had a great lunch with my MIL.

SATURDAY- I had an all day meeting so I planned a day off which worked well with the sucky weather.

SUNDAY- The morning began bright and early with a 6am swim. I swam for an hour and did a ladder with focus on my breathing. After a quick shower, I met up with Iron Snoopy, Moose and Jen and we drove to Glen Ellyn for an 8am run with the runners club. We did six miles and the weather was phenomenal.

In the afternoon, I went to Route 66 Dragstrip to watch Bino and my hubby race their Firebird. They made it through the first round then lost. I don't understand much about cars but it was a great day to be outdoors.

Looking back at the week, I did get 8.5 hours training done this week and felt good.

There is less than 2 weeks until Galena. They have not posted any water temps yet. I think it's been too cold to warm up the lake and will change to a duathlon. I am looking for another sprint tri for the beginning of June.

Waddling toward the work week.............

Sounds like a good weekend. Good thing you had plan B for Saturday!

Your training is going great! There is the Seahorse sprint tri right off I-94 in Michigan the first weekend in June. Don't know how close that is.

On Friday we were driving from Janesville WI, through Chicago... oh my! in torrents of rain all the way. There was no bike riding in that downpour.
Good luck with your training.
