Wedding is Over. Time to get back to TRAINING!

Our wedding day was perfect. I know that everyone says that but absolutely nothing went wrong on our wedding day. As you can see in this picture, we had the best weather. We are so happy to finally be married. A few days after the wedding we went to Oahu, Hawaii. Neither of us had been there before and we really enjoyed it. It was just like San Diego except for better beaches and warmer weather (which is nice when you're a tourist!). We drove at least 1000 miles during those 11 days. We covered every part of that island and did everything we could. It was a fantastic trip.

For 3 weeks, I barely had time to do much real training. The week before the wedding I had my family arrive on the Monday to help me with the final touches. The next 2 weeks we continued to host guests for a few days after the wedding and then took off for our 11 day honeymoon. Like I said, barely any time for training.

We have now been home from Hawaii for 2 weeks. We jumped right into full time training again. Even though we were very tired when we got back, we have managed to get some very good mileage in. Last week I did 125km's and this week I will have 130km's. The mileage will just keep building over the next 2 weeks leading up to a race that I will be doing in Long Island when we go home for Christmas. So far training is going well and I am looking forward to the 2010 season.

Keep on walking,
