Hard Training and Never Summer Ale

Nothing too exciting to report, today was a good Monday. I am trying to pack in some good, hard training before we leave for South Carolina on Thursday for Derick's (twin) sister Kristin's wedding on Saturday. I know that I will stress out if I can only run and I don't feel I have done enough swimming and cycling this week, so I will ease my worries by pounding myself early in the week: Mon = Hard Swim/Hard Bike, Tues = Track Run/Hard Bike, Wed = Hard Swim/Longer Easy Bike.

The wedding will be a fun time, I got a DRESS on Saturday for it...a very pretty and somewhat pricey dress at that. Today, I did a trainer ride this morning which was somewhat tough as I usually take Mondays easy, no 'legs', only a swim. I could definitely feel yesterday's long run. I then did a swim at Big Stacy pool, and I did 5,000 meters! I NEVER DO 5k. I have this 'thing' whereby I feel like at the 4,000 meter mark, I just 'should' get out. Enough. But today I was feeling pretty good and the time went by quickly. I am about to enjoy some salad and a BBQ chicken pizza. I could not live without pizza, it is a staple in this house. And of course, I am enjoying some New Belgium Beer...their seasonal, called 'Never Summer Ale.' (I apologize, but it is not on their website! Seems they skip from Summer's Skinny Dip to Winters 2 dare they)...It is THE BEST. I am such a fan of good beers, leading into the question I will leave you with (if there is anyone out there reading this...)

If you could only have one for the rest of your life, which would it be...Coffee or Beer?

Coffee. Hands down. Now if you had said "Coffee, beer or chocolate..."

Yes! I finally figured out how to get this to work! Beer for sure. Yummy beer. BUT... it has to be microbrewed, cold, and in a bottle or pint glass :)
