Saturday was at Lake Del Valle:
|First we had to bike up into the mountain...in the snow!|
|Then we got back and had to spin for hours|
|Then it was time to put on our wetsuits...Jasmine and I were told that if we thought it would be fun...it would be.|
|I don't really know if that was true...it was freakin' freezing!|
|But we all ironed up and went on our swim.|
|Then it was time for hill repeats in the rain on the muddy path...at least it warmed us up!|
|And then we got to spin some more!|
|Finally it was time for stretching and we were done!|
Then it was home to sleep so we could get back up at 5:30am the next morning and do it again!
This time it was at Indian Campus, College of Marin, in Novato...so we got to swim for two hours in a pool and it was mostly sunny all day!
|Notice how much happier I am?|
|We got to practice racing like in open water in the nice warm pool! Thank you coaches!|
|Then of course we had a spin/run/core...spin/run/core brick...and ok, it was still a little cold at points...hence the scarf.|
|And of course every spin/run/core brick has to have dips!|
|And sumo squats.|
So that was my weekend. 8 hours of training on Saturday, 6 on Sunday. It was absolutely the best weekend I have had in a long time!
GO TEAM! IRON TEAM!
I just want to say before I go...that I feel so lucky to be a part of such an amazing group of people. I look forward to every time I get to see them all. And on top of that, I am so lucky to have so many friends and family who aren't on the team, but who have been supporting me, and donating on my behalf, and encouraging me to do this. I feel like one of the luckiest people in the world. So thank you all my friends and family for being such great people!
