Busy weekend!

Saturday I finally did my first brick workout of the season. I was a couple of weeks behind on that, but I'm blaming the heat. Saturday was beautiful. I went for a swim then biked around Calhoun and Isles. There was a storm brewing so it was windy. But windy and COOL for the first time in weeks. And not humid.

Yesterday I went with some friends for a bike trek around the city. We had lunch at Midtown Global Market then biked to Minnehaha and saw the falls, then over to the Ben and Jerry's by Calhoun for some well-deserved ice cream. We took our time and stopped a lot, but I logged around 20 miles by the end of the day. It was fun, even if my butt was sore by the end.

Oh hello my poor neglected training blog! I've been so preoccupied with preparations for CONvergence that I have not been posting. And now it's a month until the tri already! EEEK!

I'm feeling pretty confident this year. I'm not sure if that's good or bad. I don't think I am working as hard on the training as I was last year. I was so freaked out last year. Perhaps a bit of fear is a good motivator for me?
