didn't actually get in!
I think I also felt bad about Leadville because I had put in another really solid week of training, especially for January. My speedwork felt easier which said to me that it was paying off. I got in some good vertical for January. Getting vertical in January means a lot more time on feet for less miles so it's not always super easy.
And warm temps over the weekend meant I was dreaming of spring. A very dangerous situation since it is still only mid-January. We have a lot of winter left, but it was amazing to get out in shorts and a t-shirt several times this week.
James' swim lessons went even better this week! It has taken him awhile to get used to the new setting and new people, but this week the real James was starting to peak through. He absolutely loved jumping into the pool and climbing back out and pushing off the wall. He's getting kicking down too! It's pretty fun to watch him enjoy it so much. Lately every day James seems to be showing more and more progression with communication. This week he nailed all done as in verbally. He rarely even needs you to cue him to use the words rather than the signs now. Of course he sometimes gets so excited he can say it that he forgets he doesn't actually mean all done! But hey it's progress. And everyday on the way home as soon as we turn onto our road I see him sign Dada in the rearview mirror. Its definitely a blast to watch his development lately.
