I finished up training this week with a long run and a spin on my bike, all completed before 9 this morning. We’ll leave out the part where I attacked the kitchen afterwards – I was just taking seriously that comment in Training Peaks about “rest, EAT, celebrate,” right? Or was it REST, eat, celebrate? I suppose we put our own emphasis where we need it…
13.5 miles of swimming, ~275 miles of biking and over 65 miles of running all in the past 3 weeks – a nice way to finish up base training for the year. I still can’t believe quite how good I feel at the end of it all! I’m feeling more confident that I’m stronger this year than I’ve ever been. And I have to thank e21 for keeping me going like never before!
In any event, once I was done with training and firmly squeezed into my compression tights, it was off to Dillon Beach on the Sonoma County coast for some fun for the dogs with a bunch of their family members.

The scenery along the drive out to the coast is as stunning as the beach!
Anyway, only a dog person will drive 4 hours roundtrip to give their dogs less than 2 hours of fun on the beach. Back to resting, eating and celebrating!
