Two a days - 310.5So back in high school on the swim team, if you were good enough, you got "invited" to morning workouts. This meant that you'd be in the pool for up to an hour and a half before school and two hours after school. You'd burn a S*** load of calories and be a walking zombie. Well, I don't know if I'll make it a daily habit, but yesterday I did a "two a day". As previously posted, I did 3.5 miles on the treadmill in the morning. Then I joined Teri at the gym for a quick 1/4 mile swim in the pool and a 6PM spin class. According to my calculations, we did about 12.5 - 13 miles in spin class. SOOOOOO Technically I completed our sprint triathlon yesterday. Although, again, it was spread throughout the day.
This morning I had intended to sleep in. But I was restless around 5:30, so I headed BACK to the gym. That's right, 3 workouts in 24 hours. I just did a half mile in the pool with a 100 IM to finish it up. (3 X 100 Swim, Kick, Pull + 1 X 100 IM) Even after the workouts yesterday, it felt pretty dang good. I'm going to try to be in the gym every morning this week and stay out of the drive thru every day this week. No soda (But I can't guarantee I won't have a Rock Star or two) this week either. I've gone without caffeine since Saturday morning.
As mentioned yesterday, returning from Puerto Vallarta last month, I was at 321.0 pounds. As of this morning after my workout, I'm back down to 310.5. 10.5 pounds in a couple of weeks. I'm pretty happy with that.
I've got three events scheduled for the summer:
Tour de Pierce on June 29th - 50 mile bike ride around Pierce County
Ocean Shores Sprint Triathlon on July 12th - 1/4 mile swim, 12.4 mile bike and 3.1 mile run
Dam2Dam on September 27th - 50 mile bike ride in Wenatchee
My goal is to be back under 300 by the Tour De Pierce, around 295 by the OS Tri and around 285 by the Dam2Dam. If I can finish up the year at around 280 or so, I'll feel REALLY REALLY good. It's going to take a lot of hard work and dedication, but it seems like that's the theme this year. In my job, my physical fitness and my marriage. Hard work and dedication. I'll pull out the ol' motto we had my Junior Year of swim team . . . PBA . . . Perceive, Believe, Achieve. See yourself doing something, Believe you can accomplish it and then go ahead and Achieve it!
