I had another great Thursday! Imagine! The photos above are only a part of what makes the day a full and awesome one. Like every other Thursday it is a routine kind of day!
A short run at 5AM to wake up, followed my an improving yoga practice. As some know mornings are not my specialty, not that I am in a bad mood or anything, I just seem to have some mental block to accepting early mornings. It is crazy as I get up before 7am from November to April 7 days a week, so by now you figure I would be over whatever it is that urks me! NO! Except for Thursday. I dont know if it is the variety of workouts or number of workouts that I enjoy. As time is getting closer, I hope I learn that it is the frequency that I like. It would make the 2 workout a day for 6 months a fun time.
ONe of todays highlights was my swim once again. As planned I increased my distance and intensity again. The gradual build will hopefully be a good strategy over the next dew weeks. Todays total distance was 3000m with about 50% of it as drills. For one of the first times, I started to feel some upper body burn from the swim. As I have been working on form I find I am using a lot more upper body muscles to pull myslef forward. My last workout had a lot of paddle work. As I was on the last set of a 5 x 300m today I could feel my upper body getting tired. It was a great feeling!
Tonight was exciting! THis weekend is supposed to be awesome weather so I spent some time getting a road bike ready to go. This Saturday I will spend the first half of the day skiing and then get out on a road ride! Wahoo! Spring is in the air!
Hope you had a great day! Dont ever forget, Live for your Dreams! It makes the world a better place!
