But this is life in the hills.
We watched the sunset instead of TV for a long time.
Oh, here, I'll make this post tri-related. I made the Thrive sports drink this morning. I was starting to get those headaches that I get when I drink straight water. I know that everyone else in the universe can drink straight water, but I think my body dumps electrolytes like a three-year old with a Tonka truck full of Legos. I have, for as long as I remember, had this issue where if I drink more than 16 oz of straight water, I start getting a headache that doesn't resolve until I eat something salty.
Last summer, I got the Thrive book (vegan triathlete, neat recipes mostly, though I wish more of them had serving sizes listed) and drank the sports drink pretty much round the clock all summer. Once I started doing that, headaches totally resolved and cramping dropped way down. So it was time to up the electrolyte intake again. It's a lemon-lime-coconut oil-date mixture, and is totally worth checking the book out of your local library. Thrive, Brendan Brazier.
I also made a batch of energy bars from the No Meat Athlete energy bar formula site, and have them in my freezer. Easy peasy, delicious.
Basically, I'm into a few big build weeks now. I gotta get my run up in distance, and start solidifying my swim distance with all the changes I've made, and get in a few long bikes.
M and I are planning some century rides later this summer (after the races). And hopefully, some big hikes with friends! So it'll be a fun summer.
