Trisuit news later in post! Had a good workout today, but so incredibly sweaty. I did some walking and jogging on the indoor track today, then NROLW:
- Barbell squat/push press: 1 x 10 22 pounds, 2 x 10 45 pounds
- Step ups: 2 x 10 with 30 pound dumbbells
- Dumbbell 1 point rows: 2 x 10 with 25 pound dumbbells
- Static lunge with rear foot elevated: 2 x 10 25 pound dumbbells
- Pushups: 2 x 10
- Plank: 2 x 60 second holds
- Cable woodchop: 2 x 10 50 pounds.
My balance is getting better on the 1 point rows now. Called John to meet me for brekkie. Then I jogged around the outside track for about 15 minutes before I left to meet him (he was biking). I was totally drenched in sweat by the time I finished. The heat has hit upstate NY!
Yum! I noticed more flowers in bloom today in the garden when I got back home, so took some pictures:
Daylilies (divisions from my parent’s house)
Heliopsis clematis – this thing gets enormously tall!
Speedwell – these look cool on breezy days.
And now the exciting news – I placed an order for my triathlon suit!
I am so excited! This will be great because I can use it just for my general bike rides and runs. I am a little nervous about a body hugging outfit, but it really isn’t that much worse than the picture of me in the side bar with bike shorts. Here is a pic (wish that were me in the photo!):
I wasn’t too thrilled about the pink (I have sworn off buying any more pink stuff!), but this actually was the cutest one out there that was affordable to me. And you can’t beat the price – $67.50 plus free shipping! It’s hard to find just the shorts or a top for much less than that. I guess it’s on sale because it isn’t a 2009 suit style? I can’t wait for it to arrive! I hope it fits, I fell inbetween sizes, so I upped to the large per their recommendation. I think the worse thing would be to have a compression suit too small! It’s only coming from NYC, so it should get here pretty fast.
