Yes, I am still training for an Ironman. It's just easier to post puppy photos than to say "I swam today. Again." But this post will have something for everyone.
I rode my bike 5 days in a row this week (if you include last Sunday). I've been very happy to not have to ride my bike the past 2 days. Tomorrow is my last long ride. I'm still working on mustering some enthusiasm for 112 miles solo, with a run off the bike. Taper is so close, dangling there tempting me. I've got to get this done first. One more big day and then I can be a lazy bum. Can you see me trying to talk myself into being excited about this? :-) My last big long swim was yesterday and it went well! Today I had to squeeze in my swim using the gym pool - BLECH. Murky water and people with no pool etiquette who just jump in and bob up and down in the water talking to each other for an hour. There are no (polite, politically correct) words... So anyway I guess the point is the work is getting done, I'm one day away from taper and I'm finally ready for it to be here.
OK if you survived all that bitching and were looking for a dose of dog, Puck had his first puppy class this morning. It was fun! He didn't bound around wreaking havoc but he was definitely distracted by all the other puppies. And he was so tired afterwards that he's slept nonstop ever since he got home.
