Training is humming along well. The double runs and double swims of November were replaced with big(ger) bike miles in December (I just knew that would happen). I still have a double run or two but the double swims have disappeared. Not to fear - I did manage to get a 100x100 swim set on my schedule for next Saturday. Which makes me soooooo excited! This will be my first attempt at such a set, something I've wanted to do FOREVER but never found a group to do it with (yes, I know I could do it by myself but...ouch). ANYWAY, the Pittsburgh Triathlon Club is sponsoring the swim and so not only do I get to do 100x100 but I get to do it with a lot of great friends! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've also managed to find a new masters team that I'm pretty excited about. Not to replace my own masters team at Pitt (which is so awesome I seriously wish I could swim there EVERY SINGLE DAY), but rather to ADD to the rotation. This new team has a practice on Saturday, which Pitt does not. And word on the street is, this Saturday practice is usually 5.5-6K in length. Um...YES PLEASE! (I think I really am a swimmer at heart...love, love, love it!)
In other news, the Occupy Pittsburgh people have been making news here in Western PA because they are getting kicked out of their spot and they are not going easy. This is very similiar to Roxy when she does her rendition of Occupy Couch and Occupy Sunny Spot:
|"Can I help you human?"|
|She lets you know if your bag is in the way of the sunny spot...|
|This was from several Christmases ago. Let it be known, family, I call the hammock FIRST!|
Me: Yeah, I'm only 32 but 29 seemed like light years ago.
Oscar (who is 34): Seriously, it's not like I'm 39!
Oscar (after thinking a bit): I guess I am 5 years removed from my 20s. (QOTD) Dang, that was a long time ago...
You might have had to be there but it was really funny - I swear!
Have a great weekend everyone!
PS I bought whole wheat orzo at the grocery store, now I must figure what to do with it!
