First up though, I plan to tackle the new HITS series Olympic on April 15th up in Napa. This is doubly exciting as my BFF KC will be racing her first triathlon since baby numero uno came over three years ago. Goodness how time flies. She's had another baby since then and is ready to get back into the swing of things. Nothing makes me happier than racing with one of the ladies who I started out my triathlon career with. We will gab, we will talk, we will celebrate each other...Girls weekend please!! And wine tasting afterwards is always an enticing option.
I was initially disappointed that I wasn't going to be able to race Oceanside or Nevis, then thought well that is OK, I will be able to finish off the month with a strong block of training and then get the engine ready for April. New Orleans is one of my fave races, even though I've only done it one other time and remember vividly the bike course where it was so windy I was smiling
So in preparation I spent the last weekend training with Jess and coach Mark...super exciting since he is usually riding with his boyfriends at the weekend having "man" time. Jess was exposed to one of our inside jokes while watching Milan San Remo live...causing her to say she was in the middle of a Manning sandwich! "Do you know Johnathan Louder? Johnathan Who? I SAID Johnathan LOUDER!!!" yes, we are just that cool
So Jess and I spent the weekend swim, bike (indoor) riding, TRXIng and running. It was so much fun, I was in desperate need of Monday Maintenance, chiro and massage all in the same day. Now that combined with the tacos I have simmering make it Monday FUNDAY!!
