18 weeks to Ironman Cozumel and Austin Fun

Another good week of workouts, a Splash & Dash PR (by just 5 seconds) on Tuesday, and a really nice ride from Andice with Sandra, Scott, Kendra, Kim & Gayla on Saturday. Even 40 minutes of running after the ride felt pretty decent, and it was hot out there! I expected Sunday's 10 mile run to hurt, but it went surprisingly well. I tried the chia seeds Ingrid gave me for the first time pre-run, I didn't do anything else different and I felt really good the entire run. I probably need to try them a couple more times before I decide for sure if they're Magic Seeds... :)

Saturday afternoon we harvested tomatoes at our community garden, then headed over to the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf for a drink. While there we thought it would be a great evening to watch the sun set, so we decided to go up to Mt. Bonnell with a stop at Mayfield Park to watch the peacocks and kill some time.This was the only peacock picture we took since we only stayed a minute. But last time we went we walked the trail.Jeff walking the trail at Mayfield Park.And we hung out with the peacocks.
There was a wedding at Mayfield Park this time so we didn't stay and just hung out at Mt. Bonnell instead.On the way up to Mt. Bonnell, that's right, I rocked the compression socks all weekend, even in public.Lake Austin from Mt. Bonnell
