Rural ride

How I train for a triathlon:

7:30am-4:30pm Work, work, work, look at other people’s tri blogs, work, work, work, check my stats to see if anyone is reading my blog, work, work,work.

4:50pm Come home and greet the welcoming committee

Hello Mama!

Hello Mama!

5:oopm Release husband into the wild for evening run. Make dinner. Keep baby from fussing relentlessly by tossing food on his high chair tray every 57 seconds.

6pm Outside play time and general kid wrangling

6:30pm Baby bed time

7pm Change clothes into very green shirt and very blue shorts. Make mental note to do some damn laundry already so I am not so offensive to the eyes.

7:15pm Start ride

Have I mentioned I live in the country?

So not kidding about the living in the country thing

7:30pm Pass the first of two graveyards. Encouraging!

I exercise to avoid ending up in here too soon

8pm Last stretch of road before home

Almost home

Almost home

It really is lovely out here, even though I complain a lot about the gravel road. I rarely see any cars (usually one or two pickup trucks pass me) and the air is fresh and clean. I don’t want to live here forever, but I’m happy here for now.
