Weekend Summary

It did not include any training, so it will be short. Friday, I had kid duty in the afternoon since the wife was working, my mother-in-law had to do some shopping and my wife had a bridal shower to get ready for after work. The kids and I napped and played.

Saturday morning was more kid duty since the wife and m-i-l had to leave at 8:30 to go set up for the shower and then attend the shower. The kids and I went to the spray park to kill some time. Then it was time for lunch and an early nap. My daughter had her end of the year dance recital that we had invited the whole family to, about 11 of us. After the recital was back to the house for barbecue and cake. Everybody left around 8 so we could get the kids down and then we bummed around until bed time.

Sunday was church in the morning and then more kid duty for me. It was my wife's birthday and she wanted to spend it shopping. Her and her mother went shopping from 11 to 1:45. They came home so I could go to a memorial for a client who died. Got back from the memorial at 3:30 and they were off again to shop. More kids and daddy time. We played in the pool until the women got back. Got dressed and took the wife out with a couple of friends for her birthday dinner. Finally had some down time without the kids and some intelligent conversation with other adults. Had a good time.

Woke up this morning to a sick wife. Asked her if she wanted me to stay home from the Y, but since the m-i-l was still here, I got to go get my swim in. Swam around 1800 yds and then lifted weights. Had to come home at lunch since the wife was still feeling bad. Let her nap while I got the kids down for their naps. Have work training all this week until we leave for Playa Del Carmen, Mexico on Friday. I can't freakin' wait. So ready to get away.

Doing run and spin in the morning. Oh yeah, I gained like 5 pounds this weekend. Stepped on the scale at the office and the bad boy said 205! Holy crap. I was expecting maybe 201 or 202, but 205??? Need to hit it hard after the vacation. Would love to be around 190 for my 2 races at the end of September. Need to get the eating in check. Check out the wife's birthday present, her first bike of her own.
It's a Giant OCR3, already has aero bars and a computer. Now I just need to pick her up some aero wheels and some shoes.

That is a great motivator, find a great training program and get to it.

I've got to tell you, once you do one, you will need to do more, they are addictive.
