What a busy day! With work I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off! Somehow I managed to get to all the places I needed to be without crashing! And, all the visits were productive. Enough of the bring stuff! I luckily enjoy my work, but it certainly is not the first passion of any of my days!
Now to the thing that I am passionate about, you know, that swim, bike, run thing. Well, I went through a little exercise relating to that this afternoon. As I drove around like a mad man, I knew I had a crazy bike workout ahead. I was wondering if I had the time to get everything done, get on the trainer, get a T run in, do my drills and still be on time for my run club. So, as the afternoon wore on and I sat in traffic I started to figure out I could skip one ride and catch up tomorrow. As the thought came into my head, I used my ninja skills and let it slide right by. Oh, but, it came right back! Damn it! Well, after a lot more rushing, I decided that there was no way the little guy on my shoulder was going to get anything close to the satisfaction of me missing a workout. So, when I finally got to it, I had to put 70 minutes into 45. So, I got on the bike and started rolling. A little slope and a little more power output, then a good sprint. A little more slope a fast spin and some one leg drills. I worked at doing the whole thing without letting my HR get out of hand. What a workout! I was sweating like I had been on the bike for 70 minutes and the satisfaction of having it done was amazing.
Right off the bike into my shoes and out the door. MY T-run was a little shorter than usual, but I turned it up a notch to see how it felt to get off the bike and light it up! It was great, I felt strong and the transition was very good. I finished off the run with some ABC's! OUch, those things are tough! I think my HR was higher doing that than any other part of my workout!
Tonight LULULEMON was a good change of pace! Rather than the slower run that I have done for a couple of weeks. Tonight I had a few faster runners, so we went out a little quick than we usually would. It felt great! A short run, but none the less a great one to get the legs moving and the group working out of the comfort zone. Lululemon is a great training group and it gives me a lot to help out in my own development. I am planning a couple of cool events with them this summer to make sure that we are always challenging ourselves. Stay tuned for the fun and exciting details!
Well, off to bed as I have a couple of crazy days ahead! I am cramming a bit this week, fitting in extra workouts as I am out for the weekend, so I dont want to miss any workouts due to travel! Rest time before another awesome day of living the dream!
Cheers to you all!
