If you've read my previous posts this week, you know there is a lot of routine in my day when it comes to family responsibilities. I'll try to be brief on those topics, but if you have kids, whether you're a triathlete spending a lot of time training or not, you know that family has to be the number one priority. In fact, I wouldn't want it any other way!
5:30 am: Wake-up
My alarm was set for 5:50, but Luke woke-up. I convinced him it wasn't time to wake-up and he went back to bed until 6:00. When I went in to wake him, he sprung out of bed!
6:30 am: Out the door
Laura got Matty ready while I got Luke ready. No surprises to report. We're way ahead of schedule today. Laura and I drove separately because she was picking the boys up early to take Matty to his helmet appointment. He wears a helmet to correct a flat spot on the back of his head. I think it makes him even more adorable. He looks like a football or hockey player.
7:20 am - 3:03 pm: School/Work day
I used some comp time to leave school at the end of the school day so I could get a jump on my workout.
4:30 pm: Bike ride on trainer
2 hour ride with 7x5 min with 2.5 minutes between intervals. The first 3 intervals 260-280 watts and the last 2 290-310 watts. My average watts for the 7 intervals were: 276, 282, 281, 308, 311, 311, and 309. I am very happy with this workout!
Laura took care of the boys with some assistance from her mom for part of the time. Laura also made dinner. Thank you!
6:45 - 7:15 pm: Dinner and Clean-up
7:15 pm: Bath, Books, and Bedtime
Luke wanted to read a book about Thanksgiving, then Easter, then Halloween. I put the nix on Halloween. He said we would read it when we got Trick-or-Treating again. I agreed.
8:00 - 8:45 pm: Relax
I watched a little of "Step Brothers" with Will Farrell. Stupic funny is exactly what I needed.
8:45 pm: Lights out!
