Tried to keep up with an 18 year kid, no foolin'!
|The lake loop!|
Afterwards she hit the trail for a run
Went 7.55 miles over flooding and mud
|Damn the dam hill!|
Didn't attempt to cross at the dam
Since the water was flooded over, oh man!
|The trail was completely flooded!|
Went under Braddock Road on the trail
Nearly fell twice in the mud but prevailed!
|This was SO slippery! PBun managed to stay upright. Whew!|
She kind of ran again with RBug virtually
Who killed her 10k race you see
|Ready to run!|
She's going to kill her Martha's Vineyard half
That she will run with her sister Donna, natch
|RBug did it! Another race!|
Later worked on a little art project in her backyard
Just a basket with flowers - it wasn't too hard
|Yard art / bike planter!|
Sunday morning was windy and chilly...
It's almost May - isn't that silly!?!
Even so BLUR and STUR met at their favorite haunt:
Fort Hunt Park for a bike and a jaunt!
First BLUR set up her very own transition area;
So she'll be calm and ready for race day- no hysteria!
|Transition practice - and rabbit ears at the ready!|
Pretended to "swim" then got on her bike gear.
Mounted her bike and away she went - never fear!
While she biked, STUR did a 7.1 mile run -
Seeing BLUR pass her was always fun!
|Partners in crime?!|
Then BLUR practiced her T2 game:
Getting all her gear together was her aim!
Once ready - she and STUR did a two mile power walk -
Another chance for some triathlon talk!
|BLUR is ready to Try Tri!|
Also on Sunday morning PBun gathered with Jeff and KBun
They headed toward Cambridge MD - into the sun!
Parked at the school and prepared to ride…
The wind kept slamming the car door and knocked over Jeff's bike!
|At least it was sunny!|
Wondered what they were getting themselves into...
But they hit the road since they had tri training to do!
KBun's race is 5 weeks out; PBun's race is 6...
And 70.3 is the distance that each is!
Made a pit stop at the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Park
PBun plans to visit over Eagleman race weekend - not on a lark!
|PBun is looking forward to checking this NPS location out soon!|
At times the wind was pretty strong
But not like Hawi, is that wrong?
KBun can most definitely attest to that
But the rabbits agreed wind training isn't too bad
|Wind average was 14 miles per hour!|
On the way back they might have stopped at a DQ...
Then a roadside market to sample a cake or two!
|Just a little banana split.|
Which made PBun think of this TV show...remember it?
As far as STUR's swimming goes…
How many miles did she swim in total do you suppose?
She went 6 miles with her head staring at the black line -
Hoping it will translate to the open water just fine!
