Summer Love Version 2

While my housework and my laundry may be suffering, I'm continuing my perfect summer weekends. Some friends of ours rented a lake home for the week and invited us to spend Thursday and Friday night with them. We had a great time relaxing on the boat and hanging out by the fire.

Sophie finally seems to enjoy the boat. This was a nice little preview of our summer vacation - only a couple of weeks away! As a bonus, on the way home we stopped and did a little shopping. I ended up finding a TYR swimsuit on sale for half off. I guess my days of swimming laps slighty over-exposed in my 10 year old tankini are over!

I ended up taking a rest day yesterday, ending my streak since June 1st of training everyday. I planned on doing a long bike ride when we got home from the lake, but it was storming by the time we got home. And I must have been tired and needed a little rest because I was in bed by 8:30. Even with the rest day, I'm happy with my training from this week:

Monday: 3 miles easy (am), 4 miles track pm
Tuesday: 1 hour kettlebells
Wednesday: 1000 m. swim
Thursday: 750 m. open water swim
Friday: 4 miles hilly tempo (I wasn't totally lazy while we were at the lake!)
Saturday: rest
Sunday: 14 miles

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

If you have a Marshall's near you, mine had awesome deals on Speedo & Nike swimsuits. I picked up 2 suits for under $18 each!
