  • I know this training was over a month ago but I want to record it for my own records, so here you go. 
  • Pretty much got kicked out of the lake during my open water swim.  It took a super long time to get in through the gate - they took everyone's name address, phone number and email one person at a time.  It was so frustrating!  
  • Since we recently moved and packed up so much of our stuff, I could not find my wetsuit.  I ended up doing my open water swim and the half Ironman without it.  I swim fine without it but it definitely helps me go faster!  Good news is we finally found it!
  • The Door County century ride we had planned for Saturday June 16 was a bust.  The forecast called for some light rains in the morning and then it was supposed to blow over and be a nice day.  Instead what happened was the storm cell just sat over the Door County Peninsula and rained and rained.  It was pouring which made biking really hard - we could barely even see, and then we were soaking wet and freezing. We cried uncle and Ben's mom ended up coming to pick us up.  Which is good because later I heard that it hailed and also like blew away an aid station. I'm not that hardcore.
  • After a relatively cool start to summer training the heat sure picked up late June.  It wasn't great, but I am glad I did get some heat training in.  During the last 100 miler on the bike, it was about 95 degrees and Matt had to call it quits due to the heat.  He was pretty disappointed but he had not been out much in the heat yet and it takes time to acclimate!
