Training – mid-season break week II :)

This week it was back to the basics and getting back to a “regular” routine without structured work.

Gonna try and get back to work on my J-Lo and Core and just having fun and playing with Bone and my friends…

This weekend is Bone’s first swim meet so I will be there to cheer him on.
With Saturday on the pool deck that means a backwards training schedule.

Saturday -

Heading over to Eagle Creek at 7am for the meet and running in between races…sorry…won’t know when or how far until we see the meet sheet.

Hang with Bone in the afternoon and then chill out with the family on Saturday night.

Sunday –

Not 100% sure on the plan yet…

Option 1 is leaving the house at 6:30am for longish ride…Nocatee…Valley…St. Augustine etc etc.


Option 2 is might go link up with Jim Wadsworth and ride with them.

If you are interested in riding either option…email me and we can try to link up.

Afternoon will be spent hanging with Bone and Family maybe at Selva and the Sunday Dinner Texas Barbecue style :)
