Week 7 in the books…still at 100% completed workouts and still feeling great!
So many first this last week that I hardly know where to begin….
· Track Session – Friday called for a track workout. 60 minutes total. I thought to myself that running on the track for an hour was going to SUCK and take forever. Turns out that the time flew by! After a mile warm-up I began the work of marking off the 1600 meter, 800 meter, and 400 meter ladders until ….presto…done!
· Swim Session – the streak has ended with my son joining me for every swim only because he was out of town. I headed over to the YMCA pool bright and early Saturday morning for my longest swim to date. I had not slept well the night before so it took me a bit to get going. Once the sun came up and spread across the water it was just amazingly beautiful. Swimming solo is not all that bad but I love it more when I have his company.
· AEROBARS – this by far is what I am most excited about. I will spare you my meltdown drama but will be honest that it seems pretty funny now. Keep in mind that I have been on the trainer in my garage since November! After rolling out of the parking lot Scott and I made our way through the first 10 miles before I started playing around with the bars. He stayed clear of me (smart man) for more than one reason...lol. At first I just placed one arm in with the other on the handle and then I eventually placed both in. Amazing enough within the next 20 miles I went through long sections where I stayed in all together even as cars passed. I was thrilled! The ride was not about anything other than acclimating with the bars. I loved it!!! (bike fit coming within a few weeks)
Moving forward now to a new week. :)
