Back Home!!!

Our trip to Europe was amazing! Almost everything went perfectly as planned and the things that didn’t were minor. We went to Paris, Provence, Barcelona and Madrid. I will do a bigger recap with photos in a week or so. Now that we are back home and we have a triathlon in 5 days so training has become the priority!!!

Right now I am feeling severely undertrained and unprepared for this upcoming race. Here I am doing my farthest distance ever (Olympic) and I have barely trained! I honestly don’t know what I was thinking. I blame it on the volcano- it really messed up my plans in a lot of ways!!

So we got home from Spain late Sunday night, May 30th. I was supposed to work the next day but I had a voicemail from my boss saying to not come in because he knew I had a late flight and it was going to be a quiet day. So happy to get that message!! Not having to work the next day really helped me get over my jet lag quickly. It also jumped started my training!!

I only ran once while in Europe (Barcelona) but I walked 100 kilometers a day (or so it seemed) so I figured it kinda worked out. I ended up doing quite a bit of biking in Paris as they have a free bike system. I loved biking in Paris!! I think that may have been my favourite part!! I felt like a local rather than a tourist and we were able to see so many cool places that we wouldn’t have seen if we had to walk everywhere. I definitely recommend biking in Paris if you plan to go there. It saves your feet big time!!

So I will definitely post more details about our trip and pictures (cuz we all love pictures!) next week once I am back from Wasa and survived the race!!
