I went away for Christmas (and loved every minute of it!), and didn't do a good job at blog updates. I needed the get away and took full advantage of the time I had with my awesome family.
In my continued quest to not run or bike prior to Christmas (running)/New Years (biking) I swam quite a bit before leaving for MI. The first workout of the week came from Colleen. Maybe she was a bit hungover from our masters Christmas party the night before (see previous post)?!?!!? Somehow she thought we could get in 6000yds in an hour and 15mins. I haven't swam that far since high school. But I stayed in after most got out, and finished off everything on the board. That was the start of many 6,000yd days.After the second 6k day I figured I could get to 40k if I kept at it.
At weeks end I accumulated 40,000yds, and my shoulders felt it! Coach Hux (above) stayed to make sure I didn't give up on my little mission. Oh it's the little things that make the off season so much fun!
I picked up my bike from my friends garage this morning (I knew if I kept it here I might give in to one of the many awesome invites to ride and not take a solid break). But before I can get to today I have to put up a few pics from my awesome MI Christmas get away. Stay tuned...
