Snack: 2 sugar cookies

Dinner: mango, spaghetti and sauce

Snack: 2 slices cinnamon toast

EXERCISE:

After 2 days of rest time to get back to it.  I woke up and headed to the pool before work.  Jon was home with the kids today.  It was raining and I watched the sky anxiously for a while to make sure there were no signs of lightning.  The intense wind and rain agitated the pool a lot.  It felt a lot more like an open water swim.  I felt the cool refreshing rain on my back the entire swim and completed a full 2000 m.  It felt great and I am feeling more and more ready every day.  That being said, I got home and immediately researched goggles as I have been having endless problems with fog and leaking.  I may be buying a new pair of goggles soon.  My 6 year old pair may be on its last leg so to speak.

EXERCISE:

It felt really good to push myself on a workout after a long weekend at the lake house.  Today I did 6 miles in about 59 minutes.  I did a 10 minute warm-up and cool down.  For 40 minutes I did 20 second sprints every 5 minutes of running.  It was a great workout and I was completely exhausted by the end.  I ran at 8:30 at night and it was still about 90 degrees F.  I came home and drank about 8 cups of water.  It is always a big challenge trying to stay hydrated during the hot Texas summers.

Jon

FOOD: The past few days we have been on vacation and today was Fathers Day (happy fathers day to me).  So given this I have been eating a bit unhealthy.  Today we had steak, macaroni salad, sodas, ice cream, cake, etc.  On the vacation I didn’t eat too terribly except that I had a good amount of rootbeer, and chips, and sun flower seeds.  It was a nice vacation . . . but I could have eaten a bit healthier. EXERCISE: Yesterday I swan about 400 meters in the open water at the lake that we went to for vacation.  It was a reminder that I need to do a couple more open water swims prior to our Half Ironman in a few months.

Sandi

FOOD:

Breakfast: 3 biscuits with gravy, 1 biscuit with butter and jam.

Snack: A few nutter butter bites

Dinner: Steak 6 oz, 1 cup pasta salad, 1/2 cup watermelon, 1 corn on the cob

EXERCISE:

We did an open water swim in the lake today.  There were some kayaks so we took turns kayaking out with the swimmer to make sure all went well.  I estimate that I swam about 800 m out in the lake.  I lost one of my ear plugs at the beginning and tried to find it without any luck.  I guess its good it happened now instead of during the race.  Oh well.  Once I got back in the grove things went well.
