Independence Day!

(For starters-dog Mocha has started another life. She is fine-just has "colitis" from stress. Now what kind of stress can a dog who sleeps 23 hours a day, eats, takes walks and receives love all the time have? )

Well, here it is July 4th. I am suppose to do a 1.5 hour bike ride this AM and the wind is howling. My legs are really hurting finally. We did a speed workout yesterday on the track, short weight workout, then a swim. i am beat! These are the days it is hard to know when to push, when to take a day off. My inclination is the latter because we are doing Bottomless Triathlon on Sunday-short race-but I do want fairly fresh legs. We are taking 5 days off of training in about 10 days when we scoot off to California. Well, i would swim but the waters of Long beach look scary! There are always some kind of bacteria in them!

So I need to decide before it gets too hot here what I am doing. We have the barbecue thing later with the fam..Shall I listen to my body or push through it?

I did time trials on the bike this morning. I was supposed to run, that didn't happen.

It's a rare day when I am supposed to, but choose not to run.

I feel guilty. But that's me.

Do what you gotta do, woman!

Well considering the killer workout I did yesterday, I am hoping you did something like that too! But having fun with the family is always important too.
