Well I made it to one organized training session this week- yesterday's swim! I intended on going to the bike as well but due to my workout gear in one place, and me in another it didn't quite happen. Thursdays are hard due to me coming right from work and since I have to pack so much stuff for the bike and swim, I leave my gear in Hubby's car so I don't have to drag it to and from work.
If you saw this bag you would think I was backpacking in Europe for 3 months!
Thursday Bag contents:
- yoga mat (dry land core workout after swim)
- flip flops for walking to and from the pool and in the change rooms
- toiletries for the shower
- bathing suit
- running shoes for bike (or bike shoes)
- bike shorts
- shirt for on the bike
- HR monitor watch and strap
- nutrition for between bike and swim
- pants, shirt, and hoodie to wear home post workout (not putting my work clothes back on!)
I dread Thursdays just because of all the stuff I have to bring!! It isn't a short walk between the parking lot and the gym/pool at the U so I get a workout just carrying my bag!! How can I reduce the amount of stuff I bring? I wish I could get a locker to leave half this stuff in!!
Anyway missed the bike workout because Hubby was running late and I couldn't exactly workout in my dress pants and high heeled boots!! I did get some studying done so it wasn't a total waste of time!
The swim workout was my first in 9 days. I really need to make sure I get my swim workouts in because I find I lose my technique and endurance quickly if I don't go at least a couple times a week. We did some drills and worked on speed (hahahahaha). I laugh because I only have one speed- slloooowwww. But that's probably because I skip workouts....
When I was in Lululemon the other day they had a quote on their chalkboard- "The only thing standing in the way is you." I like that quote- it's so true. I didn't bail on my workout that day... maybe I should go to Lululemon everyday!!! Yah right!
I have decided I need some motivation! So this weekend I am going to decide what races I am going to do this year and sign up!!! Dropping all that money should keep me motivated!
On another note, I had my first chiropractic adjustment this week!! My xray assessment went well. Dan recommended that I come for monthly maintenance so I will go back at the end of February. I was really worried about being adjusted because I hate the cracking, but he used the drop
