Black Red White

At the risk of sounding like I am full of sh*t I am going to share with you what I did this weekend anyway. Partly because I am still trying to believe it myself. That I am now at this level of fitness is so exciting and baffling at the same time.

On Saturday I rode my bike 180km immediately followed by a 22km run.  Had a shower, ate some Pad Thai, visited with my teammates and went to bed. On Sunday I rode back home 180km.  This morning (Monday) I then ran another 22 km before work.  I  then rode my bike downtown and back to my office twice (for 2 separate meetings).  My legs are a little sore now.  I have actually built up to this kind of training and if anyone ever would have told me I could do this I would have laughed in their face.  Anyway- I also SHOULD be at this level at this time of the season given the races I'm training for. I will be doing several ultra races this year so I'm beginning to feel more and more confident that I can actually accomplish this.

Anyway, I wore flat shoes to give my feet a nice cushy break from tight fitting heels :)

Feeling Frisky

 My apologies. Its been awhile!  My mom was visiting which was awesome- we hit all the thrift stores and new stores and grocery stores and liquor stores and beaches, etc :)  Seriously, we had a super time and I love my mom tons.  Training has been taking up alot of time this season since I am going to be running several ultra races.  I have a 60 km cross country run coming up soon so have been putting in alot of milage for that.  2 hour run in the morning, 2 hour run after work.  My calves are starting to look pretty hot if I don't say so myself :)  Maybe will show you sometime.

I did a sock bun today since I wasn't commuting to work by bike.  I love high buns and this one turned out not too bad. I need more practice to perfect it.  This is the conundrum.  I commute to work by bike so its hard to do a nice hairdo that you can actually wear under the helmet.  Since I also then use the bike to go downtown for meetings during the day its not like I want to be doing my hair up all fancy again each time I go somewhere.  What is a girl to do?  I end up just wearing my hair plain which is totally boring.    

Anyway, as if this is really anything important anyway when there's way worse things happening in the world.

I hope you are all well.  I'm taking off on a 360 km ride this weekend. Its our annual 360 ride. We ride 180 km up, spend the night in a hotel and then ride home the next day.  There will be about 25 of us going. I love it and its one of my favorite rides so should be fun.

Thats it for now. Over n out.
