70.3 Training (fail) Update- Mardi Gras Recap

I’m now 9 weeks out from my first Iron Man 70.3 here in New Orleans.  Eeekk!  Training had been going well over the past few weeks, but, as I fear it came to a sketching halt this past week due to Mardi Gras.  Sigh.

I did plenty of walking, but the runs were more like quick jogs with the dog and the bikes and swims were absent all together.  However, there was plenty of wigs and glitter and eyelashes and I did throw in a 14 hour bartending shift in the middle of it as well.  

So, if we’re keeping score, I’d say we’re at Mardi Gras: 7, Heather’s Training: 0. Epic fail.

This week it’s time to sober up and get down to work.  Pepper and I jogged earlier today and I’ll be on the bike after clinicals this evening.  Next week I promise a better update, but for now, here are some shots from Mardi Gras.
