First day of my weekend! I did sort of Lori version of a triathlon today.
I got up at the normal time, just can’t sleep in – no matter what! Anyway, got to the Y around 7am and the pool was not crowded, which is usually the case on Fridays – all those slackers that stop working out towards the end of the week LOL!
So, I did 500 yards of the backstroke. I do laps, but do them a bit differently. I do not flip and push off the pool side, I just turn around and swim, because in open water I will not be able to push off every 25 yards so I need to get used to doing all that work. I also do the backstroke because I just can’t get the breathing down without swallowing a bunch of water any other way. But, that’s okay. The swim will be my slowest event.
After that, I did my weight workout and then hopped on the treadmill and alternated walking and running for 1/2 hour.
Got home and spent some time reading the paper and just trying to relax. I really need to learn how to relax a little bit, but it is hard. After lunch, we decided to go for a bike ride – so that is the 3rd leg of a triathlon (albeit out of order). We biked to Panera Bread and back, about 15 miles total. Super active day.
Of course, type A that I am, I did work an hour and half of overtime tonight. Like the extra money, and working from home makes that really easy to do!
I made up a breakfast cookie for tomorrow morning. Did vanilla protein powder and pumpkin with walnut butter. I am not totally sold on how this will be. It’s interesting at any rate. I’ll let you all know how it turns out.
We are hoping for another bike ride tomorrow, but it really depends on the weather. Rain is moving in. If it rains, it might be a shopping day heehee!
Anyone else have fun plans for the weekend?
