The week is over at last!
This morning’s swim workout was tough, but I’m finally starting to really enjoy the challenge again. Wednesday was the day that the water just clicked again. Since then I’ve been churning out more yards more quickly. I’m not fast yet, but I’m not dragging my feet.
On a down note, the pool is shredding my feet. Literally it’s like a cheese grater. I’m not even doing flip turns in order to keep this from happening… but alas. I can’t avoid it. It happens every summer. Ugh.
Yesterday was a really good bike session. Yes, on my trainer. I refuse to ride on these roads in the middle of the day alone. There’s road construction and the drivers are ass-hats. That’s the only way I can put it. The last time I rode out on the roads, even with a friend, I was buzzed twice, honked at repeatedly, yelled at to get off the road, and had an empty soda bottle thrown at me…. this was only a 40mi ride….. Anywho!
Weights are starting to go back up. It’s exciting. Today was just overall a really good workout morning. I probably need to run later, but we’ll see if that actually happens.
On a personal side, I keep running into ironmen in the gym. We’ll have great conversations but then they always ask which races I’m doing this year.
I always have to respond that this is the year of getting into grad-school. No races for me.
They all make the same sympathetic face….
And quite frankly it’s actually starting to bug me. I want to race. So badly I want to race. I’m feeling good, I’m pacing well. I want to put these skills to use…
But ugh. There is only one race that I could maybe do, but I don’t want to deal with the other people who are there. Yes, that is actually a factor for me. There’s bad blood and I’d rather just avoid it, especially because I am supposed to be working on school . Haha.
That’s what’s happening in my life.
Again, have a great weekend!!
