Timberman Taper

The training has been done.
now it's time to eat drink and be merry.
unfortunately it's water that I will be dirnking - although I will still be merry.

this weekend I met up with Lynn and KateO to finish the last required long brick of the season. wow! Lynn, annie, and I biked 28 miles. (Kate had to keep going since she is doing IMFL - no taper for her) - then we jogged 6 miles. I forgot the new compression sleeve and the shins was deifintiely tight, so I walked up the hills.
Mission Accomplished.

In 4 days IronGreg and I will fly up to Boston and drive to Laconia. We are staying with my FAVulous Aunt Mich who is making us lobster for dinner friday night - mm mm good! Cousin Carolyn is doing the sprint on Saturday, and her son Adam is doing the kid's race. It's nice to have family in the area. and Aunt Mich's house used to be my Grammy's house - so lots of memories there! And IronGreg used to go to camp as a kid in the Lakes Region, so hopefully we can stroll thru memory lane for him, too.

so cheers!! to all my team mates that I have spent the last 14 weeks (since White Lake) training for timerbman with. the "turtorous tuesdays" and the "trigirl tortuous triple" - hmm blake and tortuous rides...

T-minus 6 days...

Good luck this weekend! hope you have a great race and a nice time with your family :-)

P.S. I like you you call your grandmother "grammy". That's what I call mine too. You don't hear that used too much.
