1. We’ve decided to start introducing Miles to the bike so hopefully he will eventually be able to run along beside one of us at a quicker pace. Yesterday evening I took the bike out to accompany hubs and Miles while they ran, so he could start getting used to it. He did really well! I even took off ahead for a while and let him tag along. He was excited but engaged and focused at the same time. Everything is more fun with a pup.
2. Today we had some weird weather. I did double 10K runs (5AM and 6PM) since I won’t have a chance to do a long run this weekend, and it felt like a totally different climate for each run! This morning it was mild and muggy (as well as buggy – seen below *gross*) and this evening it was downright miserable with cold, rain and wind. Note the change in attire. The temperature is on its way down to freezing tonight. Sheesh!
3. This weekend I’m doing a “casual” 100K bike event that I signed up for when I was still planning on doing the Ironman. My cycling has dropped significantly since then and I’ve barely been on the bike at all, so it is definitely going to be a leisurely/recreational ride for me. As if that wasn’t enough, Sunday is my first triathlon of the season (sprint distance). With such a late spring, I haven’t done any open water swimming yet so I decided that some bathtub preparation was required! I think I’m ready now.
Have a great weekend!
