|Work commute chic!|
|Night skate skiing|
I've been continuing my ski lessons with my patient, kind, and excellent coach, Mike. He has vast experience coaching athletes up to the highest levels and his patience runs very deep. Lucky for me!! The lessons are definitely helping, and I've begun to get the hang of skiing. However, I'm still working on overcoming my fear of people skiing anywhere near me. Apparently I prefer the trail all to myself!

I've also continued biking with power at Eurosports and also started co-leading, along with Coach Dave, the HPS group at OTC on Wednesday nights! I definitely need to work a bit more time on the bike into the schedule though (and space it out, since both are now on Wednesdays). I'm working on organizing our garage at the Trifecta House to be an official pain cave. When I'm done, I'll share some pictures!
And like I said, I really, really need to get back in the pool. I went once, with Mike, to help him with his swimming (as sort of a very lopsided trade for my ski lessons), but I only swam about 800m, and mostly just hung out on the pool deck! The swim will always be the part of triathlon that I least like to train for, mostly because I spent those 11 years training for swimming 20 hours per week. I'm hoping the motivation comes back soon though!
