And here we are with another look back at the week that was. But first, I think I’ve finally decided on the half that I am participating in! I was weighing the You Go Girl Half (in Tacoma – local, sort of) and the San Jose Rock ‘N Roll (not local at all). My potential plans to go to Europe have been moved from September to November (still potential, but I have my fingers crossed) which means I’m free to do the YGG in Tacoma. Oh wait, I forgot some fanfare. TA DA – I’m doing the You Go Girl Half in Tacoma! It’s not that I won’t ever do the San Jose RNR, but it’s probably not in the cards this year. So in less than 4 weeks now I will do my one and only triathlon of the season and then four weeks later I will do the YGG Half! Yikes!! Completely walking it to test out my ability to walk a half and hopefully come in close to 3 hours and 30 minutes so I can feel much more comfortable about doing the Tinker Bell & Princess Half in 2012. Oh the things I do for Disney races! 🙂
Friday – BRRRRR!!! With the triathlon not that far off it was time to go jump in the lake. Holy cow, it was cold. Chilly!! Freezing!! I swam for about 20 minutes and that was enough.
Saturday – time to get up early and go for a bike ride. I thought for a second about going back to the hills but decided to keep it flat and simple.
Sunday – I think summer has finally arrived!! Which means I probably should have gotten up a tad earlier to beat the heat to do my 8 miles. Okay, so it’s Seattle and really not that hot. And I shouldn’t complain since all I’ve been doing lately is complaining about a lack of of summer. And now I’m complaining that it is here! Have I mentioned I like to complain? 🙂 Anyway, back to the walk. I got to the turn around point and I was so thankful because it meant I could head back towards shade. Beautiful, lovely shade. Hey, but guess what? The sun moves. And so did my shade. So my long stretch became only small little patches. But I still enjoyed them, along with the slight breeze that would blow through every once in awhile. And I might have slowed down a tad while in the shade to prolong the coolness. Finally I was done!!
