I must say, the past three days of workouts have been quite successful compared to the first two days of this week.
Wednesday I had a super successful swim, working on some super speedy sprints. Boy, that's a lot of ssssssss.
Yesterday I went out for a late run. I had gone to lunch with some teachers to celebrate the last day of summer school, which kept me from hitting the gym right away. Then, I had to let my mini burgers from Applebee's settle in... and didn't get out until 530. Probably the hottest time of the day, and did I feel it. It was a short run, but a run none the less.
Today, I was able to sleep in a bit, but got up early enough to hit the open road before it got too hot. When I left it was about 71 degrees with a mild wind of 6mph from the NW. By the time I was finished, I was pooped. It was 82 degrees with NW winds at 15mph. I had gone out on a route that our cycle group has taken, and got about 9 miles into it and had to turn around due to construction. I was fine with it because I wanted to do at least 15 miles. But, coming back was a total bee-yach. Pardon my foul mouth. I was going north and west for about 4 or 5 miles and it was brutal. The wind picked up and there was an extra uphill climb. But, once I got as far as I could go west on that road (before hitting gravel) I turned south and was happy! The wind was mostly at my back. I had to stop and take a couple breaks and thought I would give you a sight of my ride...I topped off the ride with W3D3 pushups... totaling 80 today. I barely made it through them.
Tomorrow... a nice early morning run before I head out of town again. Yep. 4 hour drive to a small town in MN for a friend's wedding.
Have a great weekend, y'all!
