Training Up-date

I visited the new Lifestyles gym the other day with my friend, Lori.  Great facility, but I still haven’t decided if I will join or not because sneaking into my friend, Julie’s neighborhood gym is a lot cheaper. 😉

While at the gym, I cycled with some serious resistance for 10.5 miles, which took about 35 minutes on the stationary bike.  During my work-out, I watched Comedy Central to make the time fly.  I am sure people thought I was a loony because I was laughing while cycling.  After my silly cycling, Lori and I explored the weight machines.

This morning, I popped over to our community pool and swam 16 laps.  According to my calculations, 4 laps in my pool equals about an 1/8 mile.  Usually, I try to complete 8 laps to train farther than the race distance.  Feeling overly ambish on this sunny Saturday, I swam 16 laps.

Tomorrow I plan to run 8 miles, so I will watch my margarita consumption. 😉

Have I mentioned that I wear #1 DD’s hot pink goggles when I swim?  Now that’s sexy!  Note to self: get bike and goggles.

    It is not an easy juggle, but I seem to have a groove that works for me. I am a really early riser so I try to work-out before my family wakes up. On the days that I run, I usually set out before sunrise. With a warm-up, stretching, and 4-5 mile run, it takes me about an hour. On my cross-training days, I also try to work-out for an hour but in the comforts of my own home. Sometimes my work-outs get interrupted with grumpy, hungry children, but at least I can pause my video and return to later in the day. If I work-out in the early morning, I have the rest of the day to complete my other Domestic Diva tasks.

    Wow, i envy that you can up so early! I use to run at 6am and I have struggle to try and get up at 5am but that works against me, I am too tired at night time.

    Domestic Diva task, haha. You do not work? My wife has a full time IT job so that doesnt help…
