Okay, first is the workout and breakfast – then my suit arrived!
Woke up early again (on my day off grrr……). The Y was pretty empty today, probably because the pool was closed for repairs, or because it was Friday!
Anyway, jogged for 30 minutes, then NROLW:
- Barbell deadlifts: 1 x 10 75 pounds, 1 x 10 85 pounds
- Bulgarian split squat: 2 x 10 with 25 pound plate
- Underhand lat pulldown: 1 x 10 55 pounds, 1 x 10 60 pounds
- Reverse lunge with forward reach: 2 x 10 with 10# dumbbells
- Prone cuban snatch: 2 x 10 with 10# dumbbells
- Swiss ball crunch: 2 x 10
- Reverse crunch: 2 x 10
- Lateral flexion: 2 x 10
- Prone cobra: 2 x 60 second holds
Then some stretching (very important, and I don’t always remember). I actually showered at the Y because I was meeting my mom for breakfast and thought I would be presentable. We went to a little local place called Boston Candy Kitchen. It’s very old, and they have just inexpensive home cooking. It also is an old fashioned ice cream soda fountain!
Got a cheese omelet with wheat toast. Not pictured are some home fries that were ordered by my mom, which I proceeded to eat 1/2 of!
It was a very flat omelet, but very, very good. Especially after a workout!
Anyway, I got home and John said “You got a package.” I danced around because I knew it was my trisuit! I ripped open the package, shed clothes and put it on right then and there (hello neighbors!). I love it!!!
John said “Oh my god, I married an athlete” – then he went and got the camera LOL!
It definitely accentuates the curves, I have to say. It is so comfy, though. I was expecting it to feel like a wetsuit, but it doesn’t at all. Has good compression (which I need), but not too much. The legs come down far enough and have a gripper band that is not too tight, but stayed in place while I tested it out. I think the top is supportive enough, I was a little concerned about that getting a larger size, because my top was really a medium. Seemed to be okay. I jogged in place and it was quite comfortable. Will have to see how it does after getting wet. I wanted to run outside and take my bike for a spin, but it is pouring rain right now. I am a little self conscious – there is no hiding anything in this suit. So, must get used to that.
I get to test it out in water tomorrow!
And it is officially named: Triscuit!
