A Memorial Day
Monday was a great day off for our family. We took the troops to swinging bridges and did the hike with our usual canal walking and tunnel exploring. We lost some slippers, found some slippers and made some blisters. (Couldn't resist the rhyme!) Zack had a ball as usual and even made some new dog buddies. When we made it up to the swimming hole, Troy was holding Sophie and she so wanted to come in the water. But this is the coldest water in Hawaii and hard to get in even for the big kids and I. Well I finely started putting her toes in and then her legs and she was kicking her legs and smiling and leaning for the water, so we went in a little bit more and little bit more until she was all the way in and loving it. I was so surprised. She didn't even seem to mind the cold and just smiled, kicked, wiggled and splashed. It was cute. When her lips turned blue I decided she needed to get out, but that was after 10 minutes of complete joy and satisfaction on her part. As for the training. Malia and I did the pool today and I got in a 20 minute swim with fins and it was a great workout. Rode the inside recumbent bike tonight 10 miles, 34 minutes...very sweaty :) Had an absolute awesome run on Saturday evening. Endorphin high was great and I didn't want to stop although Troy and Sophie were out in the street waiting for me!
