Kona Project: "A Week in the Life of...Day 6"

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!

Thursday 2/27/14

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!
