Whew. I took Monday off as usual, and then just wasn't feeling all right on Tuesday. Sluggish...tired...had to fight to keep my eyes open. Decided it would be best for me to take an extra rest day, which I did. I rarely ever take 2 days off a week, much less in a row! But this weekend kicked my butt. It was ridiculously fun, but I think I needed the extra day to re-coop. Got a scheduled massage which was wonderful, and rested up.
Today I arrived at the pool bright and early to do 3500 yards. It was OK. Not my best effort--I still felt a little sluggish and my times showed it. But I'm not going to freak out about it. Tomorrow's another day, and I'll crank out a short 3000 so hopefully that will be good.
(Did I just say "short" 3000? What the hell has happened to me? I feel like I should smack myself.)
Today after work it was BEEE-yootiful, so I decided to do a brick before Bible Study. Hopped on the bike and for some reason was just in the ZONE. Maybe it was making up for my morning's sluggish swim, but I averaged 18.6 over just under 19 miles, which for me is pretty good! Very happy with that. Snotty as usual, but I had my trusty gloves to keep things from getting too out of control :)
Then I hopped off the bike and started a 30 minute run-off. Felt the usual brick legs for the first mile or so, but then got in my groove as the iPod read my mind and ended up negative splitting by almost a minute!
Came home to see that my hubby had already made dinner--complete with a very tasty salad with apples and strawberries and sweet corn on the cob!
You don't even understand how much I freaking Luuuurrrrve sweet corn.
My hubby rocks. :)
Bed is calling--gotta get up early and hit the pool!
