I know, I know, I haven't been posting much lately. Mostly because I haven't been up to much, training wise. I've spent a lot of time on my bike. But what is there to say about that?
Well, here you go.
Headed out for 55 miles last weekend. It was a little warm so on one of our stops to purchase water, I carefully clomped through the produce section to purchase watermelon. Even if it does make my throat itch (I'm allergic to all melons, but sometimes eat them) it really hit the spot. Mmm, hydrated!
Oh, don't mind me. I always dress this way to grocery shop.
Independence Day we met a bunch of Frunners at the lake for a 5 and 10K race. I paced Violator for her first race back post injury. She did great! Dang, she's a strong runner! So proud of how hard she has worked in the past year.
Went for quite a few warm runs. I refuse to complain about the heat. I mean, it's summer in Texas. You really shouldn't be surprised unless you are new. I'm trying to run later in the mornings or in the afternoon to get acclimated to the hot conditions and not spoil myself with late night runs. So that means at times, I'm seeking out what little shade I can find when stopped at a traffic light!
Had plans to ride long on Sunday. Which meant plenty of water and fuel. I'm still obsessed with my Feed Zone cookbook. I'd much rather have real food than gels any day!
Team K just recently started rollin and they've been eager to join us for a Donkey Ride. The Donkeys were out in full force yesterday! And if you look closely, you can spot a camel, losing his religion out in the field. Oh, he was really putting on a show for us! Rolling in the dust, hind legs in the air, he was hilarious!
And today, well, I have the most fun friends. I'm not sure who started it, or even why, but we began a chain of photo texts, all of us trying to imitate different Emojis. It started with winking and quickly progressed. Here is my attempt at the winking heart shaped eye Emoji. Can't tell us apart, can you?
Yeah, I'm pretty ridiculous.
I slept like a Viking on Thursday and Friday nights, a cumulative 23 hours! Yes, I'm making up for the past, oh, two years. I even managed a few naps in between, if you can believe that. Sadly, Saturday night my old friend insomnia was back in full force. But tonight, tonight I'm beating the system. I don't know how, but it's happening. I've had a taste of sleep and it shall be mine!
What'd you do fun this weekend?
