Tired Thursday

This has been a crazy week between work and training. I am pooped.  The good news is, I have fit it all in, training, work, life, and sometimes sleep. 

Because I am kind of tired, here is my week so far in pictures (with short sometimes witty captions).

 I have way too much fun with Bailey at work.

You should have seen Bailey's paws.

Bailey loves his job.  Here he is eating donuts checking the crew.

If this stuff is wrong, I don't want to be right.

I rode my bike 35 miles in this starting at 4:30am.  No one in this house understands why I do it. I know you do.

This is my other swimming pool, Pleasant Pond.  I love it.

The water is really clear there.
 
I am super psyched I am doing my first Duathlon this weekend - the LADU

Girl, i'm feeling your tired! Today was my rest day. Have an awesome race at the du! I love duathlons.

When you ride at 4:30am, do you ride with lights?

Alex said...

Caratunk Girl said...

KC - it is pretty of light out then but I put on front and back lights when I go that early. Not that it mattered in the downpour! I had a rest day today too!!!Stupid work. DON'T they understand I have training to do?? :)

Cheers to tired Thursday! You have had a heck of a week:) I am digging the pictures! The jam looks yummy...I bet it would be good on pancakes...Mmmm!

BTW, is your swimming pool really a pond or is it a small lake? It looks like the water is nice and clean:) I get freaked out swimming in icky lakes...so I am just curious.

Tomorrow is Friday and I am ready for it! Enjoy your weekend!

Great pics! Love your pool though it makes me feel guilty about lack of (none) open water swims. Have a great race!

I don't think I've seen a cooler looking dog than Bailey. Amazing.

Have a good race!

Aimee (I Tri To Be Me) said...

Oh..I love those pictures! I am so jealous that you get to swim in that lake...it is so perfect and so beautiful!

Good luck at your Du this weekend! You're going to do awesome! :)

Rural Girl said...

Beautiful lake. Crystal clear. Good luck at your du this weekend!

Whitarican said...

LOL Sometimes I tell my job the same thing.."don't you realize I have to train"... My job just thinks I am crazy..

Caratunk Girl said...

Julie - The jam is ridiculous it is so good. Pleasant Pond is super clean - and cold. Spring fed. Sooo I guess it is more of a small lake, but we call it "The Pond".

skierz - thanks! Glad you like it!

DRog - You kick my ass swimming any day, any where.

Patrick - THANKS! I think he is pretty cool too!

Aimee - Thanks! I know I am lucky to have 2 lakes so close.

Rural Girl - Thanks!

Whitarican - I know! What is it with these people?? Geez.

Love your pup. He has to be A MESS out in the woods with that shaggy hair??? We love our pups and try to take them everywhere we can.

Love the pics of your local pools... jealous!

Big Daddy Diesel said...

Good luck at the DU!!!

Caratunk Girl said...

Luke, Christi, Colleen, BDD - THANKS!

Regina - You can totally come and visit, and baby sit Bailey. He lays around a lot.

Jon - yeah I know, you can see pretty far down.

Matty O - Thanks! He isn't too bad as far as mess goes, he doesn't like to get dirty. I walked in the mud, he didn't.

Glenn Jones said...

I take Bailey's job! Nom nom nom.

Great photos. Thanks for sharing them.

Black Knight said...

I like your pool and of course the wonderful dog. I am sure that in this moment you are celebrating the victory. As you promised: no prisoners!

Molly said...

Oh my, that jam looks killer. That one photo of how clear your pond is gave me flashbacks to when I was a kid...my grandparents had a house on Great East Lake in Acton, ME, LOVED it there!

Caratunk Girl said...

Johan - Thanks!

Glenn - He isn't giving it up. ha!

Sir Black Knight - I took no prisoners, but was ambushed by the evil Wicked Flat Tire. I was prepared and was able to carry on.

Molly - YES that jam is so good. Maine sure has some nice lakes!
