Triathlon for the wife this weekend

I have been pushing this weekend to get another hard week of training before I begin to lighten the load next week. I'm in for the Peach of Century hosted by the Salem Bicycle Club. The hope is I will be able to recover adequately for the LIVESTRONG Challenge in Portland the following weekend. I'm still in the air for the Harvest Century for the weekend after that.

I really cranked into a stiff wind on Tuesday at the group ride. No sleep that night due to sick kids meant just a commute yesterday. I toted heavy bags around town from appointment to appointment in the rain. I'm hoping to get the front wheel back for my favorite bike tomorrow and do some hill repeats in Mt. Angel tomorrow.

This weekend, however, I'll not be riding at all. I'm the support crew and kid-watcher for my wife's first triathlon since having our second daughter. Actually, it's the first since college. It's a short tri with a 400M swim, 20K bike and 5K run. She should be fine as long as she stays within herself and avoids the adrenaline surge of lining up with another 1299 athletes.

The girls and I will hang out near the transition to cheer on Momma bright and early Sunday morning. Translation: even less sleep for Dad this weekend. :-)
