4:00 a.m. - the number on the clock as I was doing my tempo run at the gym on Monday. Truthfully it was 5:00 which was bad enough but the clock hadn't been turned back and that number was freaking me out.
And it was a completely awesome tempo run that felt pretty effortless! Where did that come from?
6 - the number of times I tried to set my own clock for the time change (I am generally good at this) before giving up and changing the time zone instead.
3 - the number of days I got up early - very early - this week to get a workout in.
infinite - the number of times I ran to the bathroom during my colonoscopy prep fun fun fun NOT (sorry if TMI)
4250 - the number of yards I swam this week
1 - swimmer who approached me in the locker room that told me she didn't learn to swim until she was 30. Apparently she saw me swimming during my lesson and thought I needed some encouragement. (She was right.)
3 - the number of students in my class who have come to school with pink eye. How many more will get it and when will it be my turn?
3 - the number of books I have read this week I just finished The Provence Cure for the Broken Hearted by Bridget Asher. I liked it enough to want to read other books by this author. It is a light book with a lot of characters I loved.
2 - the number of weeks until I begin what I will call official tri training.
5 approximately - the number of tri plans I have looked at this week. I am not finding one that fits me. I appreciate the suggestions I have gotten. Yes, I can do the miles so I am not concerned about that. The beginning tri plans have you running for 15 minutes and swimming 500 yards or less and the bike is short too. That is not me. Should it be? If I "gear up" I want to put some time in and feel I did something worth calling a work out. I am fully prepared to come in last in my tri but I don't want it to be because I didn't put time in. Plus I have 3 more half marathons this spring and I don't want to show up unprepared to do the distance. I am thinking I will come up with my own plan. As long as I am biking, (ahem I will be soon), swimming and running a decent number of times in the week I should be okay. Right? Well, this got a little long winded for this post. Obviously very much on my mind.
Yes, bike I will get you out soon. I know I should be riding
Yes, I do remember how much I loved you.
