we've waited all month long

the warm & sunny weather we all expect from austin returned today! just in time for the 3M ½ marathon. both kristin & i will be running this one.

i was mr. solo this morning at t3 swim practice. noah ended up getting his swim in yesterday at lunch & ed just wasn’t feel up to it after his visit to the physical therapist yesterday to check out his shins.

i’ve been sleeping like crap this week. not only have i not been getting into bed prior to 11:30pm (thursday night i was up until 1:30 am working on a proposal for my VP & CEO. when you are waking up between 5am & 6am each morning, your getting to bed late, & then worse off just ended up waking up constantly & struggling to get in bed in the first place it can be pretty rough on the training schedule.

regardless i hopped out of bed at 6am this morning & was at the pool at 7am. i had already made up my mind that i wasn’t going to road ride today & would instead spend 1.5 – 2 hours on a spin bike at the gym (that’s were i’m headed shortly). anyhow, the weather was 36 degrees out when i jumped in – as usual that warm water felt like a sauna compared to the temps outside. during the last 500 meters of my 2700 meter workout the sun started coming up! it was awesome to see the sun rising & knowing that later today the temps would reach the high 60s to low 70s. what a way to start your day – i’m really digging the swimming folks. i’ve still got a lot to learn, but at least they are fun!

my folks will be in town later today & a cousin of mine along with her husband flew in from raleigh, NC to run tomorrow’s race. i’m glad the weather won’t spoil anyone’s day tomorrow.
here’s to a great 3M run tomorrow!
