It's been a wonderful 4 days off of work. I should have worked this weekend but hmm, somehow I just never quite found the time!
I had a couple runs, a short bike ride, and a couple swims, including 2100 yds this morning (should have been 2400 but I am a moron and managed to miss 300 yds of fist drills on my workout). After the swim today, we took the dogs for a little hike at the Stile Ranch Trail.
The lovely scenery does not convey the cleanup work that such a hike entails. First, we had to remove the shrubbery that each dog had picked up in their coat - burs, stickers, twigs, branches, entire bushes, etc. Then I had to remove all the ticks from the dogs *shudder* And after all that it was obvious that baths were in order, so Max and Stan are currently drying in their crates. As tired as they were, the naptime should be a welcome break.
One week until Las Vegas! Hopefully the taper crazies don't hit too hard this week, hopefully I can stave off all of my dessert cravings for another week, and hopefully I am trained and READY to race!
