Sunday – At my Mom’s, after arriving home from Madison yesterday afternoon and before we go to the Dells tomorrow. So, I’ll go over to Delnor fitness center, get a guest pass, and do my swim session.
I’m filling out the paperwork. They said they’d give me a free guest pass even though my friend that goes there was technically out of them! I ask about how to get through the locker room to the pool. “Oh, our pool is closed for annual maintenance.” I drop the pen, of course it is! I say, “That’s why I’m here.” Wow, unbelievable. Okay. Breathe. Smile. “Is there another pool in the area you can recommend?” Yes, another town over. I call the Norris Center, pull up directions on my phone and head over. $8. The pool length 25 yards instead of 25 meters. I don’t do any complicated math (who has any brain power left???) and tack on an extra pool lap to each segment.
Warm-Up: 2 x 200, Main: 3 x 750. I did the first one longer, so that the last one would be shorter.
I put on my watch when I arrived and surprise!, out of charge. Even though I hadn’t used it since it had last been plugged in. So I moved rings on the lane diviners and counted things out that way. = 90 minutes
Monday – Did an hour run before we left for the Dells. Ran easy, did take my route over the few slight hills in the area. = 60 minutes
Tuesday – Had a couple alcoholic beverages yesterday afternoon (and did more working out than my plan originally prescribed over the weekend) so … OFF!
Wednesday – Hour run. Ran before we got in the car to drive home. Got rained on a couple times.
Oh, and I’m doing all my runs without music these days because my iPod hasn’t worked since the 3 hour run in the rain a couple Fridays ago. Doesn’t even bother me much – which is perplexing – I love music – but after I get going, it doesn’t really register that I’m running without music!
Was supposed to do 60 minute ride when we got home, but I had too much to do to prep for tomorrows virtual course facilitation. Had to bag it. = 60 minutes
Thursday – Did 60 minutes of cycling on trainer at home from 6:40am to 7:40am so I could connect with the family, take pictures, before the kids left for their 1st day of school.
Then took off for 2 hour run. Felt good. Passed by pretty quickly without incident. = 180 minutes
Friday – 90-minute ride on trainer in basement – no time to fit it in any other way. = 90 minutes
Saturday – Was planning to go to Ohio Street Beach in the morning to open water swim with others. Pouring! Sure I could go down there, yet what I’m looking for is an opportunity to swim with others an get splashed some. Went back to bed and dozed some.
Then I got up and decided I wanted to get out a tricky work email I needed to complete sooner rather than later. I should have time for that, then a short bike and swim session, then go to my Source Healing appointment (acupuncture) and the Chicago tri expo. Finished the work, felt great about it, packed up and heading to the gym. Started working some times in my head and I didn’t have enough time! Geez, I just wanted to work some and not be timing things and now I’m time boxed. I’d only have time for a 20-minute ride and the swim session would be squished. Crap. I went back home. I’ll have to do it later.
Instead, took the kids to Panera for lunch, then took Mckenzie with me to my Source Healing appointment. It was fun for me to have Keri, my practitioner, and McKenzie meet. It was fun for Keri too! McKenzie was her talkative self and took it all in stride. And then to the expo. It’s so much more fun to have an energetic young person with you for these things! We got done with the expo after 5pm. No way did I feel like working out after that. Plus, then I got to thinking that it wasn’t a good to do it before the tri tomorrow. Either way, it ain’t happening!
Was a bad and usual week for me for missing workouts.
McKenzie and I instead did a much needed Target run, including getting gifts for their cousins birthday party the next day.
