Yes, I have now been to the pool the same amount of times (twice) in two weeks as I did all of last summer in prep for my triathlon. I’d say that is a good start! Especially since I haven’t even signed up for any summer tri’s. I am considering one on father’s day and one the end of July. Tri training is a great way to get in shape and cross training worked well when I did my first marathon in 2011.
So yesterday morning when the only thing I wanted to do was stay in bed, I crawled out and into a swim suit. Again, my goal was 20 minutes of swimming. I did 10 minutes of freestyle (new this season with my new goggles is that I can breathe on both the right and left side) and then about 8 minutes of kickboard drills before finishing off with a few more laps. The reward, as always was the hot tub waiting for me when I finished.
Friday is typically my day off from working out, but I did drag the BOY out for a 10 minute walk around the neighborhood. It was 50 degrees today, and the snow pile in our front lawn is almost fully thawed. It’s been a rather uneventful Passover so far so tonight the BOY and I had a rather uneventful dinner. I’ve been feeding my carb cravings with chocolate…not too good for the waist line but nice on the taste buds : )
They BOY is already asking when I’ll make another batch of Matzah Toffee. Now that HIS college basketball season is over after a sad Indiana loss last night, he is transferring his attentions elsewhere…the grill : ) With warm weather expected this weekend and no bread in sight until Tuesday, we are hoping to spend some quality time soaking up vitamin D out back. Woo Hoo!
Alrighty, I have a run planned for early tomorrow morning, so it’s a little TV for me and then off to bed!
Happy Weekend Ya’ll!
