I woke up to this: RAIN!
This is definitely a hoodie and tea day!
This is my favorite kind of honey now. I get it in the German produce markets here. It’s whipped honey. LOVE IT!
It just dissolves in water after a few stirs.
The only good kind of tea that I can find at the commissary here…
Today, I had my last BRICK before my tri race this weekend. It was tiny! A 30 minute ride with a 10 minute run. Besides the 25 mile/hour winds (literally!), it was good. Yes, I almost got blown off the road a few times and into a corn field, but I felt good. There is really nothing else that I could have done to prepare for this race. Yes, I missed a few workouts here and there, but things come up (and they always will). Whether I feel slow or fast on Saturday, at least I know that I have done all that I could to train for this thing!
Here is my mini transition area. I forgot to put my hat out.
mmmmm… It was really good. I warmed the shrimp up in the oven so it was just as crunchy as it was last night, and added some feta to my salad.
Today, I have watched a couple of my lectures, and picked up the house a little bit. I still have to:
- get the evites out for the Bazaar Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon that I’m planning
- Swim Workout (1700 meters)
- pick up random stuff for dinner at the commissary
- watch another lecture
- study for my group fitness instructor cert for the end of September
I also just got an email from my yoga instructor. Because there is no class on Monday (Labor Day), she will be having a 2 hour class tomorrow. It will focus on abs and hip openers the first hour, and then stretching a lot the next hour.
Do you all think that I should go even though I should be tapering, and my race is Saturday?
