yo, slow your roll!
27.6 miles (5.5 run, 1.1 swim, 21 bike)
was my workout, in that order, on friday morning before work and i actually felt great! a few funny things that happened during the workouts that i must share. first, there is this lady at the Y who gets to the pool about 10-15 minutes later than i do so i'm swimming by the time she gets there. she proceeds to stand in front of my lane and as i'm swimming up to the wall, i can hear her yelling in her very new york accent, 'how's the wata?" the first time this happened, my goggles were so fogged up i couldn't tell if she was yelling this out to me or the lifegaurds across the way. i finally realized it was me. now i'm just used to it. yesterday, my swim buddy and i decided to be brave and try out the long course because frankly, we had no other choice since friday mornings are set up for the long course. for those who aren't familiar with how that works, here's a quick explanation. most pools have schedules set up where they will place the pool lane dividers across or long ways. the short course is 25 meters and the long course is 50 meters. since i started swimming at the beginning of january, i have conveniently opted for the short course however, yesterday i had no trouble getting comfortable going long.
today we (me and favorite riding partner, jc) beat the rain and got in a 52 mile ride with a couple of riding buddies. i still felt a little shitty because of not getting enough sleep but rode well under the circumstances. i have to be on my death bed to not get my fun in for the day. tomorrow i'm feeling a long run coming on. i forgot to mention that during my run yesterday, that odd side knee pain was fine. again, one of the loud and clear messages my body is sending to say, "yo, you need to stretch more too!" i made sure i did my stretches throughout the day, before and after i ran and biked. all good...knock on wood.
have a lovely weekend everyone. much love and peace out!
