She's a Brick...House...

...She's mighty, mighty, just lettin' it all hang out.

Who's this brick layer?
I had a great weekend and had to cram a lot of workouts into two days. I woke up bright and early Friday to go to swim and do our second T30 of the season (a timed 30 minute swim to see how far you can swim...1500, same as last T30 and pretty much the same time...not better, not worse...I swam 5 days in a row last week so my shoulders were burning, so I am happy with the results)...I then had a 50 mile ride with my first, bum, bum, bum...brick workout! Only a 20 minute run following the ride, but it was killer. I felt like my legs didn't even belong to my body...luckily it was a "dog run".

What is a "dog run?" you's when well, obviously, the dog comes with me and therefore we get to stop and sniff a lot, tee-tee a lot (he does, not me) and go really slow. (Cash has put on a few L-B's this winter so his running skillz have taken a he's a great brick runner right now). It was nice to have him stop and sniff because my legs were not willing to move steadily or quickly.

I had to wake up early again on Saturday morning (4:30, not cool) to squeeze in 12 miles before I caught a 9:15 flight to Charleston, SC for a dance in my heels for 5 hours, to wake up and fly back home...whew, dog tired come Sunday night! It was nice to crawl in bed at 8:30!


  1. That's good...I call it the same thing. The dog run - when I don't want to run fast and pee on the neighbors shrubs just for fun;) That one is hit or miss...could be Magnus, could be me, just depends on hydration that day.

  2. Good God! What a weekend! Congrats on getting everything in!!
