I love Fridays. Love them! I wish everyday was Friday. Although this Friday didn’t get off to a great start. But first a recap. Wed night Gary and I did some work to clean all our hardwood floors on the first floor b/c our rugs were out to the cleaners. So, we busted our asses getting that done, then walked the dogs, etc and it was late, but I decided I had to get in 10 miles. So, I hopped on the trainer and spun a fast recovery 10 miler. It was so hot in the house, it was pretty miserable, but I was glad to get it done and fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow! Thurs morning I got up and met my friend Ilana to run. It was a gorgeous day out, perfect temp. Unfortunately I had some serious emergency stomach issues and had to cut my planned 5 miler to a 3 miler. But at least I made it home! Last night Gary and me and 2 gals from my biking group rode a great 23 miler. We headed up Shaker to Chagrin River Road, up Berkshire, over to Cedar and then back down Shaker. I think I am still recovering from the tri b/c my legs felt like jelly, but I rode pretty well, aside from one bad side stitch (I wasn’t drinking enough). I am getting better on the descents thank goodness, I took the hill down into chagrin valley pretty quickly for me and got over 30 mph. Followed the ride up with 1.5 mile run to make it a brick. Sooo, I had the best intentions of getting up this morning and doing a long swim. I had a bit of trouble getting out of bed, so I was already running late, then both dogs decided they needed to poop so I was out in the yard longer than normal, by the time I got in my car, it was already 6 and I like to be at the gym by then. I got half way to the gym and realized I didn’t have my card or my license. Grrr. Now that I think about it, fully awake, they probably would have gone ahead and let me in. But my fuzzy morning brain took it as a sign to get back in bed. Booo. So, my weekly swimming mileage is going to be way less than it should be unless I can get some pool swimming in on Sunday. Have a great weekend bloggy friends.
