I haven’t posted my Philly Race Report, as I’m going to wait till tomorrow evening for the official photos to get posted.
Post-Marathon Sunday night I did a trainer ride, and then I swam yesterday – just a 1,000M or so. It was good, and I could almost walk after it. Currently 104 year old grandma’s walk faster than I. I did a bike trainer ride today, which also helped. I’m hoping by Wednesday I’ll be able to walk normally…just in time for the Turkey Trots (in costume) on Thursday.
It’s that time of year again though were tri races open and close extremely fast. Here’s a couple of quick ones you should be aware of (mostly related to my little corner of the world):
- Nation’s Tri: Without doubt my favorite Olympic distance event held here in DC. This opened this morning for USAT members, and opens next Monday at 12:01AM EST for everyone else. I can’t imagine this will be open very long either. Interestingly, they’ve changed the course again this year, and introduced a DUAL-SWIM (yes, two simultaneous swim courses). I think given time this will rival the NYC and Chicago Triathlons. Best of all: No Active.com registration. My registration is complete.
Non-tri related tidbits:
- Currently I’m sleeping with…a bunch of cookbooks. Yesterday I spent some of my day sifting through potential recipes for Thanksgiving Dinner (held at my place this year). I’m slowly narrowing it all down. But all the recipes, papers and what-not are sitting on the other half of my bed in the meantime. I picked up the birdie yesterday.
- Tomorrow will be dedicated to lots of cooking. Pies, brining, breads, woohoo!
- I need to stuff my turkey. Noooo…not the one I’m cooking – but my turkey costume. Much better than the newspaper I used during Halloween.
