I am starting to think the purpose of my training schedule is to totally exhaust me on the weekends, simply so I know how to keep going even when I am out of steam. That is where I am right now. I'm in a world of pure exhaustion and fatigue. And you know what? I'm going to wake up tomorrow and start it all over again for a week!

Quite honestly, I'm so exhausted I don't even really have the energy to write a coherent post so instead here are some random things for the day:

  • I went for a 50 mile, turned 33, turned 35 mile bike ride with my good buddy Laurie yesterday and took no pictures of us. The flat ride was not so flat. Both of us had to walk our bikes up one hill but it was still a totally beautiful ride! I finished up the last 15 miles of my ride when I got home.
  • I am not a big Shakespeare fan, but there really isn't a better way to see a play than by sitting on a comfy chair in the grass, outside, with your closest friends, on a cool night after 50 miles of riding.
  • I am not friends with humidity. I went out to one of the local metro parks to run this morning with my faithful running buddy and couldn't get over how sweaty I was. It was kind of gross to be honest. At least I really know what is my worst enemy when running.
  • Hills do exist in Ohio. This was the weekend of hills; I rode them, I ran them and I would be OK if I didn't see them again for awhile. I know, however, that hills remain in my future and are really good for me.
  • I go through clothes like water! I go through work out clothes like water during my hottest run/ride on hills in major humidity. As a matter of fact, I have a huge load of laundry in the machine right now, just so I can run again at 5:30 tomorrow morning.

See why I'm exhausted?
