Sunshine and Hills

I took virtually no photos on my long ride yesterday.  I was too busy trying to keep my power super steady (per Coach's instructions) while following Jeff and George up Gilroy Hot Springs.
All I managed was this one near the top but it pretty much exemplifies the whole ride.  The sun is shining and everything is GREEN!
Today I sandwiched my workouts around a long outing for the dogs.  4 miles of running around off-leash on the Alameda Creek Trail!

 It's all fun and games until someone lies down in a mud puddle.

 Thankfully they all clean up OK!

I finished up week two of this big training block this afternoon and I'm not dead yet, so bring on week three!  2 weeks till the first triathlon of the year.  And another race 2 weeks after that, and another 2 weeks after THAT!  I guess that means the 2012 season is getting real!

I swear, looking at Puck in that last picture makes me think Cody has some St. Bernard in him! Too bad, I know he doesnt'... although his feet are HUMONGOUS! :) Your pic from riding looks beautiful!!

it's so funny how puck still looks like puppy in some ways. he's so cute. looks like he was averse to the mud puddle.

I think washing your furry boys should count as an exercise too! The puddle picture made me feel bad for you :)

I took Freckles to a big dog park with a pond and a beach. Looking at all the wet dogs rolling in sand made me glad that she is totally anti-water.

HAHA I m glad that our Golden isnt the only one who likes to bathe in mud. They are getting SPA treatments we pay lotsa $$ for.
Yay for spring racing.

The view during your ride was gorgeous! I love how green it is! We have not gotten our "green" weather yet. I hope we get some rain so we can1

Sounds like 2 great workouts! 3 if you count the baths. :)
