Week #9 and a some negotiating with my mind this past week.
Swim Session –
Mind: Can we cut this session short by 400 meters. Your coffee is waiting at the house.
Me: If you do these 4x50 speed sets with a strong effort I will think about it.
Run Session –
Mind: Legs are tired. Can you feel it? Do we really have to pick up the pace for the last 15 minutes of our long run?
Me: Keep the pace smooth and maybe we will keep it at this pace for the entire run.
Want to know the outcome on the negotiations?….. Stick with the workout plan. Finish the swim sets in entirety and finish out the run strong. Your legs can handle it!
Still, sometimes the mind games trick the body into doing what it can do before it knows what it is capable of.
Other notable happenings:
· Hubby and I joined my team of girls for a ride on Saturday. Very enjoyable all the way around. Sun felt great and the wind… well you know what we all think of the wind.
· While hubby and I were playing on Saturday afternoon we stopped by the human society. I ALMOST came home with a puppy. It was close!
· Today I am scheduled for a MASSAGE. My legs need it bad!
· Thursday I am scheduled for a bike fit. I bid on a new seat a few months back and won ($35) and with the addition of the tri bars it is more than needed now.
This past weekend was so GREAT... give me another just like it!
