Escape

Here I sit in Tucson!!!  I just got back from an evil Chuckie swim with Sonja and Angela and am pretty exhausted yet quite content.

The last 3 weeks at home have been, well, tough.  Hubs has been traveling pretty much non-stop for all of March and I've been doing my best holding down the fort.  The girls and I did pretty good!  Everyone was fed, homework done, showered, dance class, gymnastics, playdates, bedtime stories, some laundry done and even folded, and then I would have approximately 20 minutes to relax before falling asleep on the couch.  Phew!  Absolutely no time for anything else but getting my workouts done, walking puppy, sometimes showering (but I considered that optional), working on schedules and working on taxes.

So when the opportunity to pack up my bike and head out of town for some coaching abuse with PIC, I jumped and bought the airplane ticket.  We got in late Thursday night, and Friday morning built up our bikes and headed to Mt. Lemmon.  Ahhhhh, climbing bliss.  The air was a bit chilly so we only went up to Windy Point, back down, and then 2 times to mile 5 and back.  Afterwards, a nice jog and my favorite part.....a trip to Trader Joe's!

Today?  Breakfast, evil swim, second breakfast.  Some down time to blog (WOW!)  Later, we'll head to the track for a MAF test and then a spin.  Bliss!

Tomorrow?  More of the same.  Hubs is doing a great job taking care of the family plus paybacks are hell  and the puppy.  I'll be back in no time!

Happy Training!

You can see text you types and then deleted - i.e. "plus paybacks are hell". It shows up as being striken out.
