A great week of training. My birthday triathlon started this week off. I took the day off work and played professional triathlete for the day. My swim was awesome, breaking new barriers. My cycling has been faster. I think the weather played a role into this, plus I just swam 2 miles. My run was right on target. I love it when things go right.

I ran 4 days, swam 4 days, biked 4 days and went to the gym for weights 2 days. This was extreme. I hope next week is less workout sessions. My b-day triathlon didn't help the matter, but these 2-a-day workouts are getting tough...mentally.

Sunday was crazy. I took my Grandma to church (we go every 2nd Sunday of the month). This gives me a chance to spend good quality time with Grandma! We should have gone to church earlier. I didn't get home until 2:30. Yikes. A 5-hour bike ride and I started at 3pm. It was nearly dark by the time I finished. I need to change things up next time. I went over to my friend Joe's house after the ride was over. I planned it just right so I would finish at his house. I was a little shy of 5 hours, but close enough. The weather was awesome! Not too hot or cold. The bugs were fierce. I think I got a little extra protein along the way.
