Training Camp For One...

Most of my teammates are on Maui... a team...most will be here...soon! Till then I am in charge of kicking my own booty! MY LONG Tuesday was followed by a FAST Wednesday. The pool saw me ALONE with a main set of 15x200. Then ALONE for 8x6k repeats. I take that back, at the pool I had a few guys on either side of me cheering me on. One of them even got out to time my last one and cheer me on to a new 200 PR. AND the 6k's I convinced Brooke to come for the fun. We both almost died together...

Why no Maui for me? Why do the camp SOLO? Because I got my side kick & his FIRST ever field trip! Today's recovery day was a trip to Konaweana petting zoo with Kainoa's preschool! It's actually a class the Konaweana highschoolers take- talk about FUN! Wish I grew up here!

Chaperoning the field trip gave me an up-close look at Kainoa in school. Still have to pinch myself that he is such a good little guy! When it came time to ride the horse I was crossing my fingers he would like it. I think he prefers the beach...

This week has royally kicked me where it counts. Every part of me hurts. Now I am off to a flat fixing class (not kidding), it starts at 6pm and all I want to do is sleep. Not yet. After Sunday I will sleep, or tonight, whatever comes first...

Happy training!

That's one heck of a run - 8 x 6K? 48K total, or did you mean 600's? Either way, incredible effort!

You are a ROCKIN' Mom Bree Wee!!! I mean that. YOu are awesome. You train 100% and you are a Mom 100%. I love it. Your little one does too.
So...what was your 200 PR?
keep it up....and I think training solo has lots of benefits. You learn to push yourself...

Balance, priorities and focus.

Three things that I find almost as important in Tri as swim bike and run.

Good work!

You are right! Your son looks a little perturbed by the horse experience, more so than the sea urchin.

Let us know how the flat fixin' class knows and what the technique is for rolling that last 6 inches of bead over the rim...
I need to develop stronger thumbs!

Looks like a fun time. Its great when you can fit it all in! I'm a mom and preschool teacher, so I know how much fun they are at that age! :) I folow your blog and have a question, how much of your training do you do on your road bike versus Tri bike? Both are beautiful bikes BTW, is the road bike used for hilly workouts? ~Sally

That boy of yours is too cute. (I hope that was not creepy coming from a guy - hey I have kid, too.) I love the little girl on the horse wearing Uggs. Isn't it like 76 degrees there everyday? I guess my feet would get cold in all that sun. You are really hammering it this year. You are going to have such a good time racing - good work!

That's right, Konawaena rocks! As long as you don't get pregnant there. Which is common. You inspire me for another year. I love all the "get out there and do it" attitude that you exude. No more excuses.

The Boca-ites saw all your girls climbing Haleakala aero.. badasses! While it would be fun to be over there, the field trip was worth doing it alone!! And killer workouts girl, you're going to rock this spring :)

Your son is too cute, much braver than I am to ride that horse. They scare the crap out of me. 8x6ks, ouchhhhh, great job on completing it.
