What a Hurricane Sunday Looks Like In Our House..

Waiting for Irene to pass allowed everyone to take a turn riding the trainer:

I need that child to teach me how to get that aero!

Tea Parties:

And chillin':

Poor Oscar - it's tough living w/ all girls.

We came out of the storm with no basement flooding, and only losing power for a little while. A huge win for us! I hope everyone else stayed safe this weekend too!

I managed a long "run" (I use the term "run" loosely, it was pretty terrible) on Saturday, and then a 1.5 hour trainer ride yesterday. Yesterday marked the end of a recovery week, yet both my mind and legs feel so far from recovered. We'll see what surprises this week has in store, I'm trying to stay positive.

Happy Training!


  1. ha, ooooh that picture on her on the trainer....hahahah. :)

  2. I have been recovering for 5 years! As for an aero monkey, me too!

  3. I think cabin fever with a 6 year old and a pug during a hurricane translates to major cross training!!

    So glad to hear that basement of yours is cooperating :)

  4. She is just darling!

  5. @ Katie: Ohhh, she LOVES that thing - she wants me to put HER bike on the trainer! Awesome.

    @ Joshie - thanks for the run Monday - tres fun!

    @ Lis - My entire LIFE is #*&$^ cross training ;) And yes, the basement got a STERN talking to on Saturday!

  6. @ Nicole - thank you so much :)

  7. Your daughter is a pro already!

    and Oscar is a cutie! He and Brizzy can be lovers.

  8. @ Lauren - they would make a great pair :)

  9. What about Bella? Bella's been trying to hook up w/ Oscar for years... Is this a canine love triangle we're encouraging???
