Happy Birthday to Me!

Had such a great weekend - gotta love having 4 days off on your birthday!

Friday night - I ran 8km on the Half Iron run course. Felt good.

Saturday - rode a challenging 41km on the Half Iron bike course. Headwind both ways (seriously!), rain, hailstorm, soaking wet and frozen feet and fingers by the time we got back. Ugh. Makes you tough tho right? 1:55 meant a disappointing avg speed of about 21kmh. Boo.

Sunday
had my longest run ever. 1:15 plus warmup / cooldown meant 12.5 km in 1:30. NO PAIN!!!!!!!!!

Today
- I swam 2400m and biked a hard 32km in 1:10. Felt great! I am feeling strong considering my advanced age... LOL....

I promise to put out a couple of blog posts in the next couple of days so that auto-playing video below is out of range... Sorry about that but it IS a cool video. :)

Happy Belated Birthday, KG. I think our bodies are able to push it just a little bit harder when it's our special day.....like it's showing you that one more year has only made you one year better.
I hope this is the year all your fitness goals reach the surface and you become all you and your body know you can be.
