It’s here, it’s here!!

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!

omletIt 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!

    Ooooowww!! You rock that “Triscuit,” babe! How cute are you??

    I’m heading out for a bike ride today, but I’ll be wearing a baggy t-shirt and cotton leggings 🙁 Perhaps if you came alone, you’d help me look all sparkly and cool, too 🙂
