Grrrrrr Monday

Ahhhh Monday, my least favorite day of the week! I just hate having to work. I really do. I wish I could just hang out all day, I don’t think I’d be bored! But anyway, work I must and it’s a new work week, joy of joys. Sunday ended up being a very relaxing day. I slept in – until 9! Then I read coffee and read while I waited for Gary to get up. Once he did we headed to the Bike Authority and spent at least an hour there! Gary got pedals on his bike, he chose Speedplay. BA installed them and got his shoes all set up. I got a wetsuit off the clearance rack. I am obviously jumping into this tri thing with both feet, but I will need a wetsuit when I go to Lake Placid over memorial day weekend for training. It’s a sleeveless Xterra and I got it for $125 down from $250. Trying on wetsuits was the most demoralizing horrid thing I think I have ever done. It was like 70 degrees in the dressing room. I was seriously worn out after wrestling with 2. It sucked. I counted it as a workout. We left with pedals, wetsuit, new tubes, patching kits, gloves and a multi tool for G. I love shopping! Plus with the sales they were having and the CTC discount, we got such a deal. If you need a wetsuit, they still have a large selection of Nineteen brand on sale.

After the shopping extravaganza, I jumped on the trainer for an easy 45 min spin while watching Scrubs on DVD while Gary cleaned the basement. Then I did an abs DVD and called it a day. Then I proceeded to watch tv for like 20 hours. I love Rock of Love. I was going to hit spinning this morning but I was extra tired, so I slept in. Tonight I swim! This is going to be a crazy week b/c I have a massage tomorrow, financial planner meeting Wed and a hair cut on Thurs, then a friend staying with me this weekend. Which means I have to swim in the morning twice this week for sure. So, I think this is what I will shoot for this week:

Mon – PM swim
Tues – AM 4 mi run, PM trainer ride after massage
Wed – AM swim, PM trainer ride after financial planner
Thurs – AM 7 mi run, PM clean house for friends arrival
Fri – AM swim
Sat – 13 - 15 mile trail run (taking my friend out on the Buckeye trail if weather permits)
Sun – Spin class, maybe yoga

Oh I finished New Moon by Stephanie Meyer, the sequel to Twilight, loved them both and can't wait for Eclipse to come in at the library for me, it's the final book in the series. Now I am reading Monsters of Templeton.
