Red hot brick

We made it out yesterday for the hilly 39 miles in Cupertino/Saratoga/Los Altos and then I ran 9 miles. It was a bit warmer than I had expected and I had to ration my water along the way. I really thought I might be nearing heat stroke towards the end but I made it in OK.

The guys didn't quite get to do their lunch thing the way they intended though. After I left to run, there was an incident that required one of Nigel's dogs to be rushed to the ER vet. Jeff tried to drive my route looking for me (and drove right past me without seeing me) and instead had to wait for me at the restaurant until I arrived. Please think good thoughts for Furby, who is still hospitalized as of the last update I received.

This is a lighter rest week, which I am grateful for as my body is a bit worn down from going hard yesterday. I need to build my swimming distance up a bit more and keep working on all strokes as pre-masters starts in 2 weeks!

Hi...thanks for stopping by my blog :)

I have to say, your dogs are adorable!! I love the picture at the top of your blog...look at those sweet faces!

Very nice job on that brick workout. 9 miles after a long, hilly ride sounds hard!

White light for Furby. Do they know what happened?
Well done on your bike/run! Thank goodness you got to the restaurant before heat stroke!

I hope you got to go someplace besides HOOTERS for your reward after a torture session like that. :0P I hope poor Furby is okay... his name makes him sound extra cute.
