Looking back on all of my training, I am a bit disappointed that I haven't got in many brick workouts. I know that I will do fine in each discipline on it's own, it's just putting the three together that start to make me a wee bit anxious!


Other than training, I played sand volleyball three nights this past week. I am on two different teams, and subbed in on thursday night as well. All three nights the weather was great - sunny, super warm, and not really windy! No softball this past week, it was a bye week.


Yesterday I got talked into playing soccer. A friend of mine that I play volleyball with has been trying to get a group together to play some casual soccer. I have never played in my life and was a bit hesitant with my knee. There were about 12 of us, both men and women, and we just went out there and had some fun. Some players have been playing for a while, and there were a handful of us that had never played before. I had a lot of fun, and even scored 2 goals! I might have to play again sometime!
I will leave you with a few pictures from some of interesting weather yesterday. It would be sunny one minute, and the next it was down-pouring. Actually, when we were playing soccer some nastly clouds were rolling in. We left when the lightening started to appear and on the ride home we drove through torrential rain and hail. It was nasty. But it left behind a pretty nice full rainbow!

I dunno about bricks, I think they are just for fun :)

I think you would have liked the splash & dash that I did today - it was basically an organized brick.

i never liked doing them in training, but always wish i'd have done more when i'm in the middle of an event.

What a great pic of a rainbow! It's been a long time since I've seen one of those... rare here in AZ.

Your workouts are strong. How did your knee feel during your runs?

Keep up the good work! You're doing great!

Just get into the habit of running 5 minutes or so after EVERY bike ride. You'll be fine :-)

Watch out for that soccer stuff, too. It's addictive!
