Thank goodness for recovery week!
Coach had me a lot of strength training along with trail running with the usual cycling and a bit of swimming which all added up to tired legs. Despite that, I had a good week! Not so much from the training aspect though but more in terms of the other aspects! I took Part II of a photo class and am now feeling more confident in shooting outside of the Auto mode on my dslr camera! Had a few movie nights and a great ride with my friend, Nicky!
Movie nights were a lot of fun! Had two this week! One on Thursday to watch Race Across the Sky, a documentary covering the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race, with Dana, Monica, Nicky and Tricia. Coach and Frank were there too on their date night with their significant others. What a great documentary movie! I have to say, I would never ever want to do that race and from now on, if I am ever going through a rough patch at a race, I will say in my mind, "At least I am not riding in the Leadville 100!"
Movie night #2 took place on Saturday night right after my photo class in Novato with Brian, Dana, Adam and Mo. Dana & Brian prepared dinner (thank goodness) which was accompanied by good conversation and then a very entertaining narration of LOTR 2! Mo is doing great by the way! She is progressing amazingly on her road to recovery from her accident. I look forward to the day when she's back 100%...I know she can do it!
Sunday morning, Nicky and I met up for a ride in the Penninsula. It was Pip and Gold Member's first date (our bikes) although Pip was a little intimated at first since GM decided to show up in a disc wheel as Nicky is prepping for IM Arizona exactly one week away from today! It was a great ride and we had a lot of fun.. thank goodness Nicky was going easy for me otherwise, I would be feeling a lot more smashed than I am feeling right now...sitting in bed watching the Patriots vs Colts game!
This was my week of balance of passions- triathlon and photography plus 10+ hours of sleep on Friday night.. apparently much needed! I am taking advantage of this time while I can 'cause like I said before, once I get back from Aussie, it's game time for ironman training!
