This morning I got on my bike to ride to the pool and accidentally ended up at Peet's Coffee. The pool was not happening today.

There are some days when this is a much better alternative to swimming.

The human body is crazy adaptable. The past few weeks I have done more training than I thought possible with a full time job. Somehow I crammed it all in. And amazingly my body keeps bouncing back and allowing me to throw more at it day after day. Today it said to stop.

This weekend is big. Thankfully I have some equally crazy friends who will join me for all things riding and running. "Join" is a term I use loosely - in reality I'll spend much of the weekend chasing them. And really, having them out there with me is all I need because when it gets hard and I consider throwing an extravagant pity party for myself we can all laugh at the craziness of it all.
