Friday was some much needed pool time. The pool had been closed for maintenance for the month of April, putting me really behind in my training. It felt great to be back, I never realised just how much I missed swimming!
Saturday was hill training on the bike. We upped the speed and cut out some of the rest breaks and hit the hills.

|Stewartville Dam Hill ~ yes it just keeps going UP!|
Sunday was spent on the bike again, however, it was as a backup for my friends running the 32k K2B run. It was a cold morning to be on the bike, but a perfect overcast, cool morning for the runners. This is the last long run they will do before the Ottawa Marathon on May 29th, and yes, I'll be there that day too ringing my cow bell!
Monday was back to the pool for more laps and some recovery in the sauna!!
Tonight is the first of the Beaver Chase Race series. A nice 4 mile trail run through the Monk Conservation area. Hopefully my running passion will resurface now that the temperatures are on the rise and we are starting to enjoy some blue skies. Tri season is quickly approaching, so I'd better get my running mojo back soon!
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
