Good thing I still got in that rest day on Friday. Tuesday was supposed to be my last swim before the new tattoo on wednesday but we ended up having an Indian Princess meeting that was so much fun I didn't make it to the pool. Wednesday I couldn't double down thanks to the tattoo. And I was still pretty torn up on thursday morning so I missed that ride. The weekend was still quite productive. I did plenty of time on the bike trainer on Satuday and Sunday morning had a nice brick before church. 10 mile ride/8 mile run, and that's the longest run I've had in a long time.
The Cast Iron Club is up to 2.8 Iron swims, 2.92 iron bikes, and 2.37 marathons. Saturday officially started Base week 1, so now every week it gets a little bit longer and there are some rest weeks too of course. Base building lasts for 22 weeks, so this is going to be a wild ride.
Saturday we got a ton of snow in Raleigh! Fine, if you live north off the mason-dixon line you wouldn't think it's a lot of snow but it's the most we've gotten in years. Years people! The kids were actually able to make snowmen, even if they were mostly decorated with the leaves I haven't raked yet.

Sunday was great too. Had the great brick, a decent church service, and got to take Evil Genius to the $2 theater to see Rise of the Guardians. It was actually a great movie! I really enjoyed it, and she absolutely loved it. Great weekend after kind of a rough week. Onward and upward! Base building week 1 is here and now. Plunge into the depths.
