We went away over the fourth of July to Burlington, Vermont, a place that my husband and I have been going since before we were married ( that would be agessssssssssss, ago), lets say about 16 years or so. We have friends who used to have a tiny little cabin on Lake Champlain but they recently tore it down and build a 4BR house and its amazing. Now all of their kids have kids and we have kids so its just a huge freak show when we go up there, swimming, fishing, hiking, biking, eating, drinking, playing cards, sleeping in the hammocks, etc..... Anyway, so much fun with the kids and other families.
The only issues over the last 4years since I started this crazy triathlon stuff is fitting in my training during this weekend and Phil getting in his golf. Well this weekend went by really well since I didn't h ave to bike, I did all of my 16hrs of biking during the week so all I had to do is swim and run. What I had to do is:
Friday-4hr bike with a 15 minute run transition
Saturday- 40 minute Lake Champlain swim with a 1 mile fast run right after
Sunday- 14 mile progressive run with a 40 minute lake swim later that evening
Monday- 1 hr run ( didn't swim since I did my swim on sunday)
We drove home late last night and I felt really good that we were able to do everything we wanted and the kids had tons of fun and both Phil and I got in everything we wanted to do and needed to do.
Even though it was really hot I was able to finish all my workouts and felt fairly well. It is getting very close to LP, 19 days from today and I'm getting excited.
