And in other news…

I’m enjoying a lighter volume week of training, though still some tough stuff to keep me focused while I taper for Big Kahuna.

I found time to get my car washed.  For the first time since I bought it March 30th. (photo taken at carwash)

I saw Dr Brink for some ART on my calves and hips.  A VERY welcome intervention after Sunday’s 100-miler, and something I will be doing consistently until Ironman.  As a reward for surviving the pain, I went to Yogurtland, which is right across the street.

Despite still having 11+ weeks to go before my last race of the  year, I started putting together my 2012 season…I decided I want to challenge myself with more hilly courses next year.  On coach’s suggestion, I threw my name into the lottery for Escape from Alcatraz this morning. *fingers crossed*

Oh and – along with my training partner Nigel, my brother, his girlfriend, BSC and some other friends who haven’t come out of the closet yet – I got online at noon on Monday and put this little event on my calendar. :-)
