I don't blog much anymore, because I worry to much that other people won't want to read about my crazy, average life. I don't want to sound / not sound ________ fill in the blank. Writing is good for me and helps me cope - so I guess I will just do it anyway. :)
Down to the treadmill about 5:30 for my scheduled 40 minute easy run. The computer was not launching the internet so I could watch Netflix - so I went upstairs and grabbed a disk of Stargate SG-1, my favorite show. I did a dynamic warm up which highlighted my tight hip flexors and set to running about a 10:30ish pace.
I really had to force myself to do 3 miles. I fell short of the scheduled workout, but my body was just done. Yesterday was leg day and a mile swim, Sunday I was on my feet all morning at church and did a double workout of 45 minutes of lifting and a 4 mile run. Saturday was my "long" run day - I did about 7 miles or so. Looking back, I felt okay on Saturday.
Must be the fact that I sleep like a baby. Really....like a 2 month old baby - only without the sleeping all day. I wake up several times in the night and may or may not be able to go back to sleep. I toss and turn and toss and turn, many times in discomfort somewhere from some thing. We are getting a different bed next week, so I'm praying that helps!
Psalm 37:4 came to mind today when the phone rang - "Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart." I only had one little baby to watch this morning, and his Mom called him in sick. I was sad that he was sick, but so relieved to be "off" this morning. Little Cameron did his "lessons" on ABCMouse.com and I did a lovely 30 minute yoga session with MyYogaStudio iPhone app.
The rest of the day was fairly serene...had the neighbor over for a little while, put up corn, zucchini and made supper. I even managed to relax a little over nap time. My daycare buddy napped (18 months old), but our 4yo son did not. I think those beautiful nap days are coming to an end...*cry*
I think I will try to go to bed right after the kids do, tonight, and will be skipping my morning strength training. If I skip that, I can sleep in until 6:30. I have a swim scheduled for tomorrow night and really want to do my best. Last Blast Y Tri is a little less than three weeks away - so this next 10 days should be the last of the high volume training before taper time. If I don't watch it, I will get sick or hurt myself and my race will turn into a spectator event.
I am hopeful that this race will redeem my 2013 season. I don't have a super-duper goal for it, but would like to do well, which for me means a 35:00 swim, 1:25:00 bike, and a 60:00 run. Add in transition times and if I come in around 3:10:00, that would make me very happy. :)
Time to rest up and keep my eyes on the prize!
