My DH and I both had the day off tomorrow so we got the brilliant idea to come to the lake to get some training in. I called my mom to see if she would keep the younger two and we called the neighbor to keep the oldest. He is also his boss so that way he wouldn't miss work. We went to church this morning, ate lunch with the family, and then headed home to pack up.

We were having our road bikes serviced so we loaded the mountain bikes. We grabbed running gear and swimsuits.  We stopped at the grocery for some more fruit and cash. We got to the lake later then we wanted but it was okay because most everyone is leaving out on Sunday. We drove around scouting out places we liked. Distance to bathrooms/showers and distance from parties were the priorities.  After deciding on a spot we quickly set up the tent, unloaded the bikes and changed clothes. DH went on his bike to go swim. I had to get my long run in. I ran around the lake and back to camp ground. By then it was getting dark so I grabbed my headlamp and finished up. DH caught up to me and rode his bike along for the last 3 miles.

We forgot the lighter to start the stove for dinner but decided we could both just eat some fruit and crackers. We rode our bikes to the showers, cleaned up and settled back down at camp.

I made a make shift ice bag for my knees. I refilled my water and sat back to blog. It is fairly quiet tonight. Crickets in the background, the occasional dog barking, and some rock music in the distance. Perfect ending to a perfect day.
