I made it through the base phase, and now I'm done training to train. It's time to train for training HARD!
This was week 24 of my training plan. The 2 week warmup and 22 week build phase are totally finished off after this. That's why I took sunday as an additional rest day; the build phase started 7/22 so I grabbed the rest while I could.
The midweek stuff ended up being 100 miles on the bike, 4 miles in the pool, and 13 miles running. Saturday had the Triangle Triathlon before I took the kids to the pool and Bigun and I volunteered at a Cowboy Shooting event. They call it Cowboy Mounted Shooting, but whatevs. It was a great way to finish off a fun week. I got in 10.75 hours of training on the week. It was a great way to end the base phase.
This means that the build phase started this past Monday. I've got a special training plan for my build phase, and it warrants a separate post. Seriously cool stuff.
After the event, we got our picture taken with one of the cowboys!
We put the kids in horse jail as a joke

The third year of the Indian Princess program is all about charitable giving and volunteering. This event raised over $3000 for the Wounded Warrior Foundation, and we helped by collecting donations at the door and welcoming the guests. It was a really cool event.
