Three Things Thursday

1. Tomorrow marks the official end to my slacking. Since the half marathon I've run once and pulled out the bike a handful of times. Which wouldn't be the end of the world, but I've got a triathlon coming up in mid-June. So beginning Saturday: More biking. More running. And I've really really got to reintroduce myself to that thing called a pool.

2. Dear Mother Nature, I'm not complaining about the warmer temperatures. Really. I like it that it's starting to get all summer-like. But couldn't we just ease into the warm temps? I mean really. Going from upper 40s to upper 80s within a span of a few days? Rough. And the humidity? You can keep that, after all, it is only the end of May.

3. I went to cooking school Wednesday night. It was one of the Taste of Home Cooking Schools. The lady showed us how to make 10 recipes. And I admit, when she showed us how to make Caesar salad? I was a bit skeptical. Really? A salad? All it was was lettuce, cheese and homemade croutons. I guess it was the homemade dressing that counted as the cooking school lesson. Don't worry, it got better and was actually an enjoyable night.

I agree that the crazy temperature jumping hasn't been fun and ugh humidity...don't even get me started.

Good luck getting back into training mode. I got into lazy mode far too easily. Oops!

Welcome back (after "slacking").

I love the warm weather too and am glad the lakes are warming up. Now my fear is that they will get too warm and will no longer be wetsuit legal...

Ceaser Salad? Did she at least teach you how to shave parmesan?

Hope all else is well!

What else did you learn how to make? You're one up on me, I've never made Caesar dressing from scratch.

Cooking School, something that should be mandatory for my agenda :)

I think a cooking school would be neat...if I actually took something away from it

I have always wanted to take cooking classes but I am such a slacker in the cooking department.
