The girls got a wonderful surprise in the mail from Grandma! She made them nightgowns, and matching nightgowns for the American Girl dolls. The only time Bigun has taken her gown off since it came in the mail friday afternoon was to shower. Love is an understatement here.
Saturday's brick was a 1 mile swim and 30 mile bike, but I actually had to do the bike first. There was a water aerobics class going on in the pool the first time I came in there. Glad those ladies were getting some work done, but get outta my lane! My time on the stationary bike had some special reading material. Esquire, Swimmer, Runner's World, and Bicycling magazines. When I realized the grouping, I realized how much I love narcicism. Triathlon is a means to a tight little end. and with reading material on swim bike run and style... well that grouping really stuck out.
Sunday I had a 12 mile easy ride on the stationary and a 6 mile run before church. Did some core work too. The cool thing was that I got it all done before church, then made it home for some breakfast, shower, dress and made it there on time. I was sitting in the choir loft and I could actually feel the muscles in my legs repairing, or at least it felt like something was going on in there - and it didn't feel like the normal post-workout soreness either. it was actually really cool. All afternoon I had an unusual spring in my step, but I still didn't actually do very much. it was still cool.
Most people don't understand that physical training is also life training. The stronger you are, the better quality of life you will have. It breeds confidence that spreads into every other aspect. Enjoy it, and go do something strong today!
