You know, Red is the one who came up with Three Things Thursday. You know that, right? Clever girl.
1. I have been out of town the past two weekends. Words cannot express how relieved I am to be in town! So many exciting plans. Like, ripping out the shrubs in the front of my house. They have some sort of worm/disease and are dying faster than you can say Jack Robinson. I’ve been wanting to re-landscape that area for years so looks like this is nature’s way of saying, “Go for it!” You are welcome to come over – I’ll even let you use the chainsaw. I’m livin’ the life y’all. Big pimpin’ at the Pink Compound.
2. Saturday I’m racing Texas Girl, a little sprint tri. I say little because it is aimed at beginners and the field is pretty small. I’m not sure what to expect. I haven’t done a brick workout since, oh, before Galveston. Whoops. I don’t know anyone else racing so this will be a solo adventure. While I prefer to spot a friendly face racing on the course (it motivates me to pick up the pace) at least there will be no witnesses if I take a spill on my bike or my legs fail me on the run. The rest of my races this season are filled with frunners and frikers so that should be a blast!
3. I’ve started swimming with paddles some. Which basically means, I’ll soon drown. This has really brought to my attention the fact that the left side of my body has no idea how to swim. I’m surprised I don’t just swim in circles. Truth.
I don't know why this won't load the right way.
I DO know why I have crazy, puffy goggle eyes. Goggles. Sigh.
