I had 2 easy workouts on the schedule for yesterday: an hour long OWS and an easy bike ride.
So yesterday morning, I hit the lake with the usual gang. Only this time I introduced Marie to the group (Marie did IM WI last year, and she’s getting ready to race WI again this year). Six of us jumped in and we all got to the far corner of the lake.
At that point, Preggers Kelly (a nickname I hope catches on for her) said she was going to start cutting back across the lake towards the beach. I told her I’d go with her. The other swimmers (all the fast, non-pregnant people) were going to go a little farther before cutting back towards the beach. Kelly and I had a good swim back, and we were able to hold off the speedsters - we both thought they’d all catch us before we hit the shore.
Here we all are post-swim:
Front row: me.
Back row: Steve H, Kelly, Steve T, Julia, and Marie.
Pharmie pulling away in her first pick-up.
Riding near the river.
The tunnel under 35E.
Crossing the Mississippi.
Right along the river (can you smell the fish?) after her final pick-up.
