1. I’ve survived another week (almost) of single puppy parenting. Hubs had to leave for work again on Monday, and fortunately he comes home today. Once again my sisters have been helping me out a ton, but my training schedule is still suffering. Morning workouts are out of the question and I’m definitely missing the morning runs and the option to bike-mute to work. I’ll be getting back to both next week. Miles and I have been having a pretty good time and keeping each other company, but I think we’ll both be happy when hubby/Daddy gets home!
2. I finally got myself a more appropriate helmet to match the new bike. The “Canadian Tire special” just wasn’t cutting it anymore…
I had to special order the colour and it should be ready for pick up tonight or tomorrow, so I just have a stock photo for now. Introducing the Bontrager Circuit WSD.
You didn’t think I meant one of these, did you? 😉
3. This weekend brings my first tri of the season! I’m headed to Binbrook on Saturday for the “Sprint” (which varies from the “Sprint” distance I completed last year) of a 750m swim, 30K bike and 7.5K run.
I’m nervous but excited to compete in my third triathlon, and first race on my tri bike! It’s also going to be my first race in the 30-34 bracket, since triathlons determine age groups based on age at the end of the calendar year. (Yikes, that means I am turning 30 soon!)
Race Goals courtesy of my friend and “Goal Consultant”, Erin:
I would be thrilled to come close to those targets and she’s been pretty close in the past, so we’ll see!
Happy Thursday (almost Friday)!
