  • It was lovely to run with xaarlin in the city Wednesday before work! I hope we can do it again this summer.
  • I got a pre-race massage on Thursday, then felt fantastic during my Friday swim. I am accrediting that to the massage! My shoulders have felt tight lately, and I didn’t realize how much it had been affecting my swims, until they didn’t feel that way.
  • I’ve been randomly mentioning setting up a roller skating event for the studio I teach at to my Monday night class for a long time. So I finally did it, and a lot of people came – and not just from my class! We had SO MUCH FUN. I felt comfortable on the skates right away and could’ve kept going! I’ll definitely be setting up another skating get-together.
  • Saturday’s ride (to test out my bike after having it fixed and tuned up!) was the first time I’ve ridden from our house (that we’ve lived in for sixteen months now!). The road we live off of has a high speed limit, but there wasn’t much traffic and the drivers were courteous (and once you cross the border in to Wisconsin, there is a very nice shoulder). I want to do it again!
  • Alicia, Rachel, and I had a lot of fun at our Olympic distance triathlon relay on Sunday… and I am ready to do it again! More on the race later this week!

    I loved the skating photos on instagram, it looked like a lot of fun! And interesting about the massage helping with the swimming. It’s so funny how we get used to things and forget that they’re not normal and we’re not supposed to feel that way.

      It really was! I’d like to go again!

      Ha, and yes re: getting used to things feeling that way! I actually think swimming is what makes my shoulders tight, too! Eek.
