The last 48 hours have been pretty good for my body. Wednesday night I did 5 miles of intervals through town. Yes, at 9:30 pm and no, I did not fall like Sunday night. The humidity was tough though. So I decided to implement some lessons learned from Run Less Run Faster and work on some speedwork. Call me wimpy, but it certainly helped the 5 miles go by a little easier.
Thursday morning I decided it was time to re-bond with Dolce and set out on a longer bike ride. 23 miles in the humid morning and my legs were tired for the rest of the day. That night Camo-Man and I decided to head up to the pool and do some lap swimming. I can't wait for that pool to close, except that I like taking advantage of it when I need to get some laps in. So maybe a small part of me will be sad when it shuts down. I really wasn't in the mood to swim. I was in the mood to sit on my butt and snuggle with my kiddos, but Camo-Man wanted to exercise. I got into the pool and just thought I'd do a few laps. I put my head down and didn't come out until I had finished 1000 yards! That was a miracle for me! Usually, I'd do a 50 and then stop to catch my breath and go again. Now, I definitely took some deep breaths before turning around heading back, but I was constantly in movement and FELT AWESOME. It made me think I actually could swim!
Today is a rest day for me. I wanted to get into work early so I could spend the afternoon in a lounge chair by the pool. Sometime over the weekend I need to run 8 miles and it sounds like Sunday might be the better day considering the cool front which is supposed to come in Saturday night. So maybe tomorrow will be a bike ride with my Camo-Man and Sunday will be 8 miles before church and swimming that night. Who knows? I just feel very accomplished right now and very happy with my workouts this week. Yay me!
So, what are you doing to move your body this weekend?
