Great week

This may have been the best week I've had in 10 years.  Okay, that's a lie, but it was a great, great week.  I hit every workout but one but I'm not complaining about taking a day off in this weather.  Yesterday it was 101F at 7PM.  I had been waiting all day to run and finally just canned it.
My best side.

The previous days bike ride in the heat gave my soul a wedgie and I didn't feel like doing much anyway.

Pictures taken Survivorman style.

It was only a 5 mile ride but I think it hit me harder than I realized.

I'm falling in love with swimming.  I had two 500m swims last week even throwing in some drills on the last swim of the week.

My runs get better every time.  The best side effect of starting this new life style is my wife and I get to run together.  Well, we get to share the arboretum trail at the same time.  If I'm lucky we pass each other at some point and that's always occasion for a quick high five.  We haven't gotten to run together for years and it's such a treat.

Today I got in my missed run; the best one yet and tomorrow I get to get back in the pool.  I'm having so much fun doing this I feel like an idiot.

In other news, we heard last week that the Rock 'n' Roll marathon series is doing a half here in Lexington.  Every runner I know is excited.  I got an IM from a dear friend I hardly see anymore.  She's started reading my blog and she sent me a message to tell me about the half-marathon and that she's going to train for it.  I'm thrilled to hear it and hope I get to train with her in the future.

That's all I got for today.  A disjointed mess but I've kind of settled into my routine and I'm in cruise mode.  I hope everyone's staying cool!
