No, not the modem/router problem, but my workouts! Sometimes I hate technology! It sucks... But I work in the field, so can't knock it too much. We got a new modem for the house, however now that David is back online - my wireless connection isn't working. GOT to get it working...
Been a busy couple of days working out! and luckily, it's all been good. Quick boring run-down. :-)
Mon - Bike (gym) 10 miles; Run 1 mile on TM. This went well for me. I usually only do about 7 on the stationary bike, but decided to up it a little. Afterwards, hopped on the treadmill for a mile. Really, that's all I can fit into a lunchtime workout so I can hurry back to my cube world. I don't like taking advantage of the flexibility I am given to do this, so I hurry back, and eat at my desk. I'm fortunate to be able to do it in the first place.
Tues - Run 3 miles
Was just a long, bad day. I didn't do any workout at all during lunch, except laying down on the couch watching wk old soap operas. That's all I wanted to do, and it continued when I got home that afternoon. Well into the evening with no food in my tummy, and a beer in my hand - I finished the last sip, threw the bottle away, and changed clothes. At 8:30, I was out the door for my 3 mile run. Guess guilt sunk in about not doing it - and I did it, in the dark, and even had negative splits. NICE!
Wed - Run 6 miles; Swim 500yds (12:23)
I had to get my run in yesterday morning, because I was working at the Drive game last night. What a good 6AM run I had. It wasn't my fastest, but it sure felt good. I'm happy with it, with the exception of some minor chafing in between my legs. I know - I know - bodyglide. It was sitting safely inside the house. I could really tell later in the evening, when my shorts were rubbing it worse. I went to the pool at lunch, and did 500yds. I noticed that I just kept going and going and before I knew it, I was done with my 10 laps. Difference is - I DIDN'T REST at all. I've always taken a rest, but I was ON totally!!!! and knocked some time off my PR (was 13:16). Horrayyyy.... It boosted my self confidence in my swimming, so I feel more ready for the swim portion of the tri. Now, just gotta work on the bike - which brings me to ...
The bike! Tonight is the cycling portion of the tri clinic. Although, I'm nervous, I'm a little excited too. I've never done a group ride so this will be interesting. I think Hubby is joining (well, he has to help me with my gears :-)
