BRR! Cold Outside!

  |   General   |   No comment

So this morning I got up at 4:50AM . . . yeah, like before 5. I’m trying to make this a Tuesday morning ritual, and maybe now that Nita has gotten the bug, it’ll be easier knowing how much crap I’m going to catch for NOT being there. Oh, I guess I should mention the REASON I got up so early is to be in the pool for the 5:30AM Triathlon class at the Mel Korum YMCA in Puyallup. So this morning, I met Nita at the Y and we headed to the pool. Our workout went something like this:

  • 4 X 75 free with :10 in between each 75
  • 8 X 50 Kicking With Fins alternating flutter and dolphin
  • 300 free
  • 10 X 25 drills, first four one armed, last 6 10 kicks between each stroke.
  • 2 X 150 on the 3:00 with 1 X 100 easy
  • 2 X 150 on the 3:00 with 1 X 100 easy

I’m probably missing something but that’s about 1,850 yards … the leader, Lisa, said we did 2,000 . . . so I’m missing something.

After the Pool, we headed up to the spin room for 30 or so minutes . . . my Pilot read 6 miles even when I left.

Finally the group headed out for a run . . . yes . . . out as in OUTSIDE! We realized as we started that A) it was cold, B) it was dark and C) most of us were wearing black (it is slimming after all). So probably not the brightest group at 7:00 in the morning, but we WERE motivated. I forgot to strap on the Garmin for my run, BUT I was able to map it out online and came up with about 1.5 miles. Actually the run felt really good. I only walked for about 5 seconds at the top of the only hill. I used Map My Run to map it out, so if anyone wants to see it, you can find it here:

Here’s what I’m shooting for in terms of workouts, probably through March:

  • Monday – Arms & Chest in the weight room followed by 30 +/- minutes of cardio
  • Tuesday – Triathlon Class at the YMCA
  • Wednesday – Legs in the weight room
  • Thursday – Evening Spin class at the YMCA
  • Friday – Shoulders and Back in the weight room followed by 30 +/- minutes of cardio
  • Saturday – OFF
  • Sunday – Long Run or Ride with DaBoyz

Will I make 6 days a week every week? Probably not, but it’s what I’m shooting for right now. If anyone wants to join me, I’m happy to have as many accountability partners as I can get. 🙂
