Some photos from a hike in Golden Gate Park 2 weeks ago.

Beautiful hike but so steep, I was sore for 2 days afterwards. Strummer barely noticed.
Yesterday was a steep long climb on my mountain bike in West Mag up to the Toilet Bowl. I didn't have the beans to take too many photos but I did manage to snap a pretty meadow filled with wildflowers.
Two hour bike ride then 53 minute trail run up and down a steep ass hill then passed out on the couch with a belly full of food for the rest of the day. I managed not to pass out in Chipotle this time. Was supposed to be a 3 hour bike ride and 1 hour run according to my training program but between the elevation (around 8500 ft) and the long steepy steep hills this was enough self-flagellation for one day. Actually it was a fabulous day on the trails, bike was fun, run went well, I'm lucky to have such a beautiful place to train only 40 minutes away.
2 weeks until my little on road sprint tri and 4 weeks until my real off road race. And there's one day of a DOCNA trial tucked in there somewhere. Better get back to that wretched dogwalk training. And I'm happy to report no fledgling carcasses in my yard this week. Or husband carcasses. It turns out I can do the Heimlich maneuver. Or something approaching the Heimlich maneuver, I'm not really sure what exactly it was that I did but Jonny was choking on something, like the kind of choking where the person can't talk or cough or wheeze, and then I did something and then he wasn't choking anymore. Where my clarity in an emergency comes from I have no idea.
