This weekend was also the last big workouts before Quassy.
By the way, Rev 3 Quassy is NEXT WEEKEND.
So excited on so many levels.
So there was this little 90 miler bike ride that happened-
It was so much fun--great weather!
I left super early and met up with my training buddy, Marc (who did great--he stuck with me for almost 4 hours which is big volume for him)
Pit stop #1 was at Pine Point to inhale my favorite bike food-a Powerbar Performance Energy bar in Cookies -n- Cream! nom nom
The view for our snack break
loving my Quintana Roo cdo.1
After we left the coast, we did a majority of the miles inland and then hit up the Revolution 3 Maine HalfRev bike course which winds through several farms. We actually had to STOP for COW CROSSING!
I could not get my camera out fast enough to capture the actual crossing but it was pretty cool!
The long gate opens up across the road to stop cars (and bikes) from passing while the cows move from one pasture to the other.
The super nice farmer moooooving the cows.
After my bike ride, it was time to work!! We have a wood stove and it has become tradition to cut wood and stack it to celebrate the official start of summer (kind of an oxymoron huh?) I affectionately refer to this as the WoodB!tch Workout...I have no idea how many "cords" (nor can I tell you just how much one cord is...) we cut and stacked this weekend but it was a lot!
My boss, Lola, is a slave driver!
Recovery counts so this is how I relaxed later in the day
I finally got one of those Nook tablet things.
Immediately downloaded The Big Book of Endurance Training by Phil Maffetone. (Imagine that...)
CHILLAXIN at it's finest-check out the beautiful veggie garden in the background!
This was my view from the hammock. Lola living it up in the back yard, running through the sprinkler.
...and this was my view at the end of the day. I guess an entire day out in the bright sunshine can do THIS to you...
|Coon Eyes for sure|
Don't forget about my 1BandID giveaway, I am accepting entries until June 3rd at midnight!!
What awesomeness did you stuff into this long weekend??
