Aloha from Coeur d'Alene... Where the Hawaii girls are huddled up next to the space heaters.
Krista told me that the weather here was schizophrenic and she was right. Yesterday, beautiful blue sky and warm sun and 85 degrees. I was almost ready to sell the Hawaiian condo and buy a house on Hayden lake! But then today quickly changed my mind. 50's and wind and loud cracking thunder/lightening with some rain thrown in (and somebody said hail??). Yikes.
We swam again this morning. Yesterday the lake was all glassy- calmer than the pool water we train in. Today, the winds were up so it was in Super-Chop mode, which was actually quite exciting for me. I told Nalani, "If it's going to be 50 degrees out and we're going to be swimming in 57 degree water, it might as well be truly epic with Super-Chop too, you know?" So there you go. We'll call it epic this morning. Though the swim itself was fine, I was a frozen Popsicle for several hours afterward until I managed to submerge myself into some hot hot water in my bathtub (which is big enough, by the way, to give Moana swim lessons).
Moana thinks all this is quite exciting too. She traveled like a champ on the long flight(s) and is adjusting pretty well... Though she is about as thrilled with the temps today as I am... She opened the door to the patio because she wanted to go outside today... Then felt the air out there and said 'NOPE!' and came right back in. Apples don't fall far from trees.
Anyway, ignore my T1 time on Sunday. I hear there will be hot tubs in the transition area so I'm thinking I may spend some time in one of those thawing out prior to getting in my bike.
