18 down, 2 to go

I cannot believe there are only two weeks until our 70.3. The last 18 weeks have really flown by - these last two will be easier than the last 6 or so. It should be a nice lead in to the big day.

It has been hotter than hell this past week. To make matters worse, our air conditioning is out of comission, so while its been 107 outside, its been 95 inside. Miserable. Not cooling down at night. That kind of heat wears on you and depletes your body of all its energy! Yet, I had to bust out the workouts anyway. Most mornings I was laying in bed sweating, so getting up didn't seem so bad.

Tuesday night we swam in the pond without our wetsuits and the water was so warm, it wasn't really even that refreshing. By the end of the week, the mornings were cooler and that helped.

Saturday morning we went for an ill-fated biker ride, after a nice 40 min swim in the pond. On our bike ride - I almost got hit by a car, Trevor's spoke broke on his bike and Trevor pulled his bck muscles. Ugh. I am okay, Trevor's bike is okay and hopefully after four appts with the chiropractor this week, Trevor will be okay too. He didn't run on Sunday morning, so I know he is hurting - he usually can power through things. If you've ever hurt your back, you know how badly it sucks. I feel so bad for him!

In addition to all of this, we have been doing the final prep for opening our 2nd store on Monday - that means a week of unloading freight, moving things around, stocking shelves. So things have been a little crazy!

Here are the totals for this week:
2 hrs of swimming
4 hrs and 50 min of cycling
4 hrs and 45 min of running
2 hrs of weights/ab workouts
for a grand total of 13 hours and 35 minutes

Two weeks left. Woohoo!
