today was a really good day. once again, i set the alarm to wake up. ok, this time it wasn't set for 4:15am but more like 5:15am. however, this time, instead of turning it off, i decided to hit snooze over and over again until it was 6:30am. i guess you could say that i slept in. so i had a little coffee and headed out for a quick run,
criterium in the hood ride and ended up with a solid 35.5 mile ride. the first 8 miles felt really hard to me and i think it was because of the brick i did so late the day before. i couldn't wait to finally get to the pool and give these leg muscles a much needed break. i got to the pool around 2:30 pm and got in a good 3100 meters. i had the whole pool to myself for a while, which was kind of nice. as soon as i got home, the j-man put me to work. like i haven't done enough already today. we washed and waxed my car. these are the days i wish i drove a mini cooper but no, i drive an suv and it isn't a small one either. note to self: next car will be just that, a car...not a truck, not an suv. finally by 7 pm, everything was done and i am, dare i say, a little tired. i really need to start packing for our little excursion but that can wait until tomorrow. nothing like last minute packing.
i'm a bit behind on my blog commenting but have been reading everyone's race reports and every day happenings whenever i get some free time here and there. you all keep me very motivated and entertained all at the same time. with that, i'll leave you with a quote i came across that i think is pretty funny...
"Swim like you're gonna drown, Ride like you stole it and Run like they are chasing you."
much love and peace out!
