Weekend Plans

Like many people I am really going to be pressed for time this weekend and there wasn't a chance in hell I would be able to fit in all my workouts.
So like any normal person, I am taking the day off work tomorrow so I can fit in my 7 hour brick workout before the weekend hits. I would actually love to be taking the day off to sleep in and just relax. But as luck has it, I will be out the door by 6am to ride my bike. Fun. If for some reason you feel like taking off of work and joining me, I would love the company. Although I think this will be a good day for me to just ride on my own and really test out my race nutrition, etc. The only part about tomorrow I really am not looking forward to is riding out of the city. I really hope not to get stuck in a lot of rush hour traffic.
Why do I have to take tomorrow off anyhow?
Well, Saturday morning I will be driving off to Maryland's Eastern Shore to do the Maryland Swim for life open water race. As I complained about yesterday, I am not a great swimmer and this is a great chance to make myself feel a little better in open water. They had several different options, but I will be swimming the 2 mile option. Maybe I should have done the 3 miles, but I think 2 miles will give me a good feel of what the 2.4 distance is all about. My goal - not get stung by jelly fish (if there is any) and well feel good when I finish.
Sunday, I will be doing something I never do.... I will be Jason's race Sherpa!!! It will feel weird to have a camera around my neck instead of a race number around my waste. But, I am excited to support him as he races in his Duathlon (run 2- bike26 - run 4).   
Happy Thurs All and I hope everyone has a great weekend :)


  1. macarthur is pretty busy coming into the city in the mornings...but it is a Friday AND summer, so who knows - Especially if you start that early, you should be through Potomac early enough.

    If it wasn't a recovery/race weekend I would totally join you - taking off work for full training days is one of my favorite things :)

  2. Hi Sarah! I wanted to let you know that I have nominated your blog for the Very Inspirational Blogger Award! All of the information is in my latest post: I chose you because I have loved reading about your training and racing accomplishments. I think you're such an inspiration for so many people and you have motivated me to FINALLY do a triathlon! Keep up the great work!!!

  3. I hope you had a great weekend! I totally take days off for races (or training) :)
