Hey there! Happy Wednesday!
I had swimming on the schedule today but I didn’t get to bike yesterday because my ankle was sore from physical therapy (it’s always sore after PT from all the exercises and poking and prodding). So, instead of skipping the ride all together I figured it was a good time for a “two a day”!
I headed to the pool first:
I actually went to the indoor pool today, but you get the idea.
My friend, Suzanne, mentioned that she swims 1,000 yards in about 20 minutes so I wanted to see where I stood in comparison (she’s a much more experienced swimmer than I am). I swam the 1,000 yards in 25 minutes exactly. I did have to stop a few times to unfog my goggles, but that was it. So does that mean I suck? Or is that OK? My guess is I need some improvement….
Then I did my deep water running for 30 more minutes. It felt good. I’m really enjoying the pool!
As soon as I got home, J and I headed out for a quick 10 miles on our bikes.
If you are friends with me on Facebook or Instagram (I’m “heathamursch”!), you know that we we’ve been searching for road bikes. Well, this past Sunday I was ready to make the commitment. I had done my research and I.was.ready. Would you believe that the first store we went to J bought a bike instead of me???!
Isn’t that always the case?
I refused to give in, though, and after 6 more hours of bike stores finally found one that I LOVE! It should be shipped to the store tomorrow so I’m keeping my fingers crossed!!!!! I may or may not have already called the store 2 days in a row asking if it’s in yet or not……..
In any case, I had to work REALLY hard tonight to keep up with J. He was cruising. And I gotta admit, I was totally jealous. I can’t wait for my bike to get here!!!!!!
We only ran into one little problem when J’s chain popped off.
Is this common for road bikes? I sure hope not.
So far this week, so good. I got home, did my ab work, hung out with C, and now it’s bed time (gotta get up there before 10!).
Are you a “two a day” person? I’m typically not (not anymore, at least), but I do like to stay active. So I might do my workout and then take a walk or bike ride with the family later.
