I'll get in a day at the lake on Saturday but if I skip the dinner on Sunday I'll be in the dog house with my boat driver for long time.
The Smith Mountain Lake triathlon this past weekend had the swim shortened to 400 meters for the first time ever due to cold weather. Water temp was 55 and air temp was 46 at race time. Average water temp is usually mid-60's and has been in low 70's and as you know, mid-upper 70s/low 80's are the norm daily temps for May around here. I rode my bike Sunday and had to wear a jacket. I hate cold weather, this has been the longest winter on record. Still haven't de-winterized and have some maintenance items to take care of - maybe this weekend....
