She ordered a hilly ride on Saturday, so I strung together a bunch of climbs I normally try to avoid. It was only a 3-hour ride, but I was pretty shattered by the end as I worked really hard. I followed it up with a 30-minute "run" - but I'm not sure you could call what I was doing running at that point.
|Hopefully this counts as hilly!|
|Me and a little friend.|
|That's an emu in the trees.|
|I really wanted to jump in the river on my ride,|
but it was quite a scramble down the bank.
I capped off the week by volunteering at a local triathlon this morning. I was out at the turnaround buoy on my paddleboard. Great day for racing, although it was a scorcher by 8 a.m. Jason was 2nd overall, a good tune-up for Lake Stevens 70.3 in a week. I wouldn't mind if it was a bit cooler for that race though, everyone was melting out there today. But I'm not complaining - I'm enjoying the sunshine and heat! Ah, summer!
|Can you imagine swim conditions any more perfect?|
|Looking across to the swim start.|
|Our friend Stefan leading the swim.|
