A Rocking Workout Day!

First a swim.  Nothing special about the swim but it is part of the whole picture.

Then I had an appointment so was able to leave work at half day.  I had a doctor's appointment that is always a bit anxiety producing but things went well.  Then since there was time I don't often have I got two more workouts in.  I got home much later than planned but.........

I had a fantastic bike ride. It was an easy one on a flat route.  Two years ago at the beginning of the season there was a lot of flooding in Vermont. The marathon course had to be changed because a lot of the course was underwater.
Part of the flooded bike path.
One of the casualties of the flood was the Colchester Causeway which is an absolute delight to run and bike on.  In the summer there is a bike ferry that gets you to the other side of the cut and you can continue to ride in my beloved South Hero.  I have only used the bike ferry once but hope to get back there this summer because the Causeway has been repaired and is not usable. So the other day I rode from my son's to the bike path to the Causeway and back.  I couldn't remember how far it was but round trip it was 26 miles......a very respectable distance for a week day.
At the end of the Causeway....

Looking toward South Hero


The repaired path.....

You can see the path stretching way to the north...

Beautiful mountains in both directions.

Then I got back to Jameson's and decided I would take the time to run too. It was going to be a tri day. Jameson called just before I left and said he would be home in 5 minutes and if I waited he would run with me. I warned him I would be very slow but he said that would be fine. We only ran 4 miles - my request - but it was great.  I was as slow as promised and that night I was in bed before it was dark but I had a great great day!
Ending my busy workout day by running with Jameson....

......perfect!

Nice that you got to run with Jameson. It's always a bonus when you get to run with your offspring.

The scenery where you live is just sooooo different from where I live.

Wow, you really pushed yourself hard. Hope you had a rest day the following day?!

I love it when I'm so exhausted after a full day of fun that I fall asleep early.
