The TOUR is over, but sadly my class is not : (
Even though I’m back in class tomorrow, I stayed up a little later than expected tonight to watch the exciting finish to the Tour de France. It was fun to view this impressive race over the past three weeks, and I have a whole new knowledge and appreciation for this international spectacle. I am all hyped up for the Olympics and more importantly, my first (and most likely only) triathlon of the summer next Sunday!
Although this weekend has not been ideal for training (or blogging), I have been able to get in some bike rides (Hello Bike Commuter!) and runs. I am slacking on the swimming (story of my life), but since there is no expectations or pressure for this race, I’m not stressed, just excited!
Speaking of stressed, spending 6 days in class (instead of my usual 3 day weekend) has been rough on me. Luckily, the BOY was in charge of dinner tonight, and he prepared us an amazing dinner or shrimp fajitas. He made one spicy version using a salsa pepper from my friend’s garden and one less spicy.
Both were incredible! We combined them with grilled veggies…
And added in the fixin’s needed for a tasty dinner!
We even had enough leftovers for me to take for lunch tomorrow. For dessert, we had a special treat. The red, white, and blue bottle was awesome looking and the champagne even better!
The fig bars also made a great dessert tonight!
I apologize for post of random thoughts, but that is just where my brain is at right now. I think they call that fried! Only two more days of class and then two more days of work and then we are off to Wisconsin for the triathlon weekend. Hooray!
Race Countdown: 1 week to Triathlon Time!!!
