Made it!

Made it Maui! It's been a bit of a busy week. My Team Timex bike actually beat me here, so I had to put it together and make adjustments to it on Tuesday and then head out for a ride that day.
Here she is; note the beautiful Dutch orange paint job!!
We had a pretty big day yesterday which involved hill repeats and a TT section (race pace stuff) on the bike (3 hour ride total) and followed that by 6x1 mile repeats running off the bike. Ouch! After a sub-par bike performance (I'm blaming the jet-lag!!), I had a little heart-to-heart with myself after the first mile repeat (went something like "suck it up princess") and managed to pull off a good run session and finish with a smile. Oh yeah, then we froze in the pool during a recovery drill workout to finish off the day.
Here's the group before we headed out. I'm on the far right. It was a chilly-wet day to start the ride!!

Today was my first open water swim workout since August! It was pretty choppy out there and sometimes I didn't actually feel like I was swimming--more like windmilling and taking in a bunch of salt water, but I was happy to be out in the Ocean!!

The weekend has a long bike/run (at race efforts) one day and a hilly 4:30 ride the other plus a swim somewhere in there too. I'll let you know how it goes!!

Hope all is well across the Oceans!

Full orange TT helmet to compliment the look? That's a nice ride.
