No rest for the weary tho...back to training on Monday. When training for Ironman, taper weeks are still training weeks. Just backed down. We have been training this week and I am beginning to come around and am having more energy now. Windsor is up on the weekend and with a 6:20 AM start for me, you can bet I will be getting more sleep this week. It's the earliest start I have ever had in a race, so should be interesting. I am sure that the Thames will be cold as usual. The current could be quite strong with all the rain. We'll see. Either way I am looking to have an exciting race as this is my first at Windsor. As Rich reminds me before every race...."Have Fun" and that's exactly what I plan to do. Rich is excited as he comes to this race having won it before, he knows the course well, feels really strong, so we shall see. I am sure that he will have a great race on Sunday!
After the race, we are going to shower up and head off to see Bon Jovi in London. Having been in that silly movie with Jovi a few years ago, I became friends with the band manager. We have continued to be friends ever since, so I let him know we were in London for the weekend and whaddya know....he gave us VIP passes for the show on Sunday night. Cool! Can't wait for that and looking forward to catching up with some of the crew there as I haven't seen them in a few years. Should be really fun!
Also....we have a new niece. Richard's sister and brother-in-law had their first baby, Isabelle, a few days ago and we head to see her next week. So excited for them :)
And....very very excited to be doing the July Cover for Endurance Magazine. I am shooting in England for an exciting cover for the next issue of the magazine. Stay tuned for that. All in all...busy times across the pond. Catch up again soon.
