Do you ever feel like your weekends just blend right in to your week days? Thats how I felt today. Monday, really? When did we get rest this weekend? Maybe it was the 6 hour car ride.....haha, not really. I had to keep the hubs entertained otherwise he gets antsy....kinda like a kid, haha.
(Buffalo Springs 70.3). I wasn't going to go but I was able to get caught up on work Friday morning so that I leave for the weekend. It was nice to just chat in the car driving through the country side. We laughed and had good fun for about 2 hours and then got SUPER bored and were ready to find a Starbucks. Little did we know that we would not see a real town for about 3 more hours. EEk! No Starbucks here.....luckily I had a supply of ATHLETES honey MILK (Vanilla and Coffee flavors) to help us get over that hump.
Alright, so Saturday was Expo, Pro meeting, and a little swim practice down at the lake.
I was able to run a little bit of the run course while the boys were swimming and all I could think of was "I'm feeling HOT HOT HOT." Not sure whats better, hot and humid or hot and dry. I think I like the dry....at least you can breathe.
So after a day of prepping, we decided to get some grub early and call it a night. Again not much of selection of eats. We found a hole in the wall (literally) Mediterranean place that served gyros and dolmas but unfortunately it didn't really hit the spot. So we drove in closer to campus and found our haven.
Awww....so good to see you Starbucks!
Race morning I always make James gluten free oats with banana, honey, and 1tbsp almond butter. It was quite tricky making in a Styrofoam coffee cup but again, we managed. I can't ever eat that early when I am just the spectator. My stomach was already in a mess of nerves so I grabbed a banana, Honey Milk Light, and trail mix for the road.
Now for the pics.... I'll let them explain the day.
Here we are....race morning. Swim is about to start. Beautiful sunrise.
Pro Swim Start
Kelly (Terenzo's Girlfriend) and I Cheering on our guys!
James off on the run. Crowie was with us cheering on the guys since he wasn't able to race. Very cool guy!
Lieto Smashes the course record coming in first. Congrats Chris!
Terenzo had a tough race and came in a close 2nd! Love that smile.
And the hubs..finishing a strong 5th after a HOT run!!
James managed to smile with me after the race even though he was extremely dehydrated.
Yes, so dehydrated he needed an IV. He didn't want the IV but Medical insisted and so do I!!!
Poor guy.....that needle was big. I told him not to look.
Overall, it was a great race, great HARD & HOT course, and great people! Not long after we were back in the car a little delirious and ready to be home.
Once home, James had one request. SAUSAGE. Whats a wife to do but to feed her hard working husband! I ran out to the store and found some local jalapeno sausage for my man!
Jalapeno Sausage on toast with chalula and my homemade pepperjack spread. This was definitely a man's meal and I think we got his sodium intake covered for the day. hehe!
Recovery food for the rest of the week....lots of veggies, berries, salmon, etc. (antioxidant rich foods)!!
Anyone else cook a man meal's this weekend? Race any? Travel anywhere?
Okay, needing some extra zzz's.
