Well Sunday was an odd day, D and I were working away on the trainers, spinning with Coach Troy's "Have Mercy" when 45mins in the power went out. Originally, we thought that we blew a breaker, so we checked but the whole house was out! So we kept spinning, sans fan, tv or lights. It was tough because I was having a hard time keeping my legs turning with all of the 'comforts' afforded by electricity. A half hour later I was done and had a dark shower, followed by a cold lunch, and with nothing we could do- the garage door is electric, we took a nap ;-) About an hour later the power came back on and life resumed. D went off to work, and I took Harley to the Wapiti Trails for a ski. It was a beautiful day, mild temperatures for a change! We did the only loop that dogs are allowed on...4 times to make the 90mins I had on my schedule. In all fairness I was going a lot faster with my little sled dog than I normally would. He was really good on the leash with me. Each time we got a little downhill we picked up speed and Harley would sprint and pull me along until we ran out of steam and I had to ski. We FLEW! It was so fun! When we got home D was home too, and we had a nice relaxing evening. Harley crashed on the floor and didn't move. I did the same on the couch, we were both BEAT!
Next weekend D will be able to come with us and I am looking forward to having him there to share in the fun.
Oh and here is a what we needed Sunday...

I love the new blog layout! Where did you find such a fabulous background? I can only find the generic boring ones on the templates!

Sounds like your training is going great and you are managing in the cold Arctic conditions! Brrr, G.P. is cold!
