Woohoo! I survived the last weekend brick before Honu! The last weekend ride before a big race always makes me nervous... I always have this fear that I'm going to crash or get hit by a car or something... so I'm happy to report that it was mostly uneventful and I felt spectacular.
I started with my normal group- most of the Pac Velo Tri Team members- who were all planning on riding up to Sunset Beach and back... 62 miles. Earlier this week Jen said she would fly to Hawaii and beat me with a wet noodle (HA!) if I did that this weekend... So I told Mike that I was going to turn around early and not to worry about me.
Mike then asked the group, "Who is not going to Sunset?"
I raised my hand. The only person out of the 9 of us to do so.
Spence laughed. "One person!"
Mike's motto lately has been "Mimimalists needs not apply." So now I am shamed, but maybe they'll forgive me when I go have a great race next weekend. ;) Actually, it's all in good fun and I don't think anyone really cared one way or the other. 40 miles or 60 miles the weekend before the race... whatever floats your boat.
In Moana news... isn't it cool when your kid mimics you? Check out her Downward Dog.
And plank! Apparently Moana wants a strong core. Just like her Mama.
