I was exhausted Thursday night after my ride (see post below). I forgot to mention how I was almost side-swiped by a bimbo in a police car while waiting at a red light with the others infront of me? Or how I almost biffed it when following close behind others on a sidewalk when they decided to come to a screeching halt and I felt myself going backwards and unable to get my feet out of the clips? Fortunately, there were no falls and I came out of both situations with no marks.
Friday morning, my goal was to do a run/swim. I had two options; one getting it all done before 8am, and then the other around lunch time. When my alarm went off at 6 I knew I wanted to go with the later, but was texted by a friend already on her way to the gym. In hopes of not wasting my morning, I flew out of bed and was on my way to the gym. I wasn't able to get in a run before the swim. The swim was completely awful and I blame it on not getting enough rest. It's as simple as that.
This morning, I woke to a rainy day. Again...second day in a row. Blech. I slept in a bit and was able to get to the gym by 10. It was my intention to run for 30 minutes, and did so. I changed it up a bit and integrated some intervals into my run. This is something I hope to be doing more of... I have to Shave some time off my 5K this year, ya know!?..
After my run it felt great to cool off in the pool. It wasn't my intention to do a lot of distance in the pool, just some real good swimming in 20 minutes. So, I broke it into 2 10 minute pieces, trying to work more on pace than endurance. The first 10 minutes I only did 400M but it felt good and consistent. The second 10 minutes I was able to do 500M and very happy. I almost did another 10 minutes but decided to call it quits.
I am going to spend the rest of my afternoon reading and probably watching a movie... what could be better on a rainy day?!
