Week number three, more training…
So…I am already looking forward to beer later on; now I just have to get through 2.5 hours of work, one hour on the bike and a 5 mile run… Peanuts!
It will be different; I will have something to look forward to bored as a mother forker on the bike…Beer! Afterwards I will jump on the treadmill, fill my brain with thoughtless banter of the afternoon talk shows and then beer time.
That is 3 mentions of beer in 5 sentences…
This week I rose at the crack of dawn twice for two morning swims (so far). The first 2000 meters; the second was a planned 600 meter swim changed to 800 meters and a 9 mile run beforehand. It required being a little late for work, but was worth avoiding a second visit to the gym.
So far this week; 19 miles of running (24 following today), 1.5 hours of cycling (2.5 after today) and 2800 meters of swimming (another 800 meters on Sunday).
I am spending more time than is desirable at the gym. I conclude that is understandable, it is more convenient doing everything at the gym already being there. Life before multiple sports… 1 hr of treadmill running; I was walking out the door, now that run is followed by sitting on a bike or jumping into a pool… It is now 2 to 3 hours before I am walking out the door.
It is Friday, the weekend after a long week (for me anyway)… Does anyone have big plans for the weekend? Racing? Training? Drinking?
