Back to Normal

Yesterday was a weird day. I skipped my morning workout in favor of a couple extra hours of sleep. I worked from home which I have not been doing much of lately. Then ended up doing my brick workout in the late afternoon before heading to class. I felt like I needed to hit the reset button to get myself back to normal.

My Pearberrycado smoothie and getting some sun while running outside (during my brick workout) definitely got me back to where I need to be.

Friday morning = swim day! I love swim days because I love swimming. I think when I grow up I’ll be a mermaid.

This morning I did a longish but easy swim. My biggest concern was what color swim cap to wear. Looking through my swim bag I found four options; yellow, navy blue, regular blue and hot pink. After about 1 second of deliberation, I went with the pink.


I also grabbed my comfy goggles. They fog up towards the end but they are so much more comfortable than my other pair so I went with it. I also use a lap counter when I swim because after roughly 2 laps I start to lose count. These little gizmos are inexpensive and after having mine for years, the battery still somehow works.

Needless to say, after this long week I am looking forward to the weekend! On the docket this weekend:

  • Long run with Mugsy – 6 miles followed by…
  • Juice date with Mugsy! She and her husband got a juicer for their wedding and we are going to break it out and juice away!
  • Homework
  • Some quality SL time (he has had a rough week too…I see some serious couch time in our future)

I hope everyone has an awesome Friday and an even better weekend!
