Sore, Tired, and it’s only Friday!

What a week, and it ain’t over…and yes, age is catching up (I know, I’m whining..)

Today was good…..a spin class in the great outdoors at SVAC first thing….

I kind of needed that……a little bit of stretching while we spun, and after…and then off to the pool

yep heaven…..

When I got to the pool, I have to say, I wasn’t feelin’ it….did I really want to swim?

Honestly dead tired…..and the spin didn’t help…but, well, as soon as I dove into the 50 meter pool, as soon as my head hit the water, nothing could feel as good…

It was only 1,000 meters in 25 minutes, but I needed that, and the 15 minutes in the hot pool after….maybe a part of that recovery….my legs are still dead tired, but that swim was perfect…a perfect way to end a morning…

This does feel good….though?……a lot of running, a few spins on the bikes…..two run clubs up and running, three group runs every week…..yeah, feels right…

It’s all inspiring, which is why I really love this stuff……..just spending time in the gym feels good, feels like home, sort of like the/my Running Room, every time I walk through the doors, I feel like saying, honey I’m home…..

Tomorrow may be a rest day, a much needed recovery day, well, sort of, after a morning run…..the plan is a Zoom meet live from somewhere on one of my favorite routes, and all the participants are supposed to do the same……so should be interesting, I’ll pick a spot where a short run, a long chat, and another short run….then I’ll plan to collapse for the rest of Saturday, and hope I’ll have enough get up and go to go again Sunday……gotta, gotta run….

Planning Day by Day

Oh boy, I have a day off tomorrow!!!?…..

One day…really, I have lots of days off this week, but tomorrow is a day when I have a ton to do…and have to try and squeeze in a work out or two….that’s life.

I try and squeeze things in always…..today, a long day at the running room store, so a bike ride to the store, a bike ride home, and a run club this evening..so that works…

Tomorrow? I just have to shuffle what’s important, what’s not, and what can wait…and if I don’t run tomorrow, I won’t have time until Saturday (OMG!)……I need to get into a pool, I need to get on the bike, and I want to do a spin class, and do some strength training…..grrrrr……

I’m still pretty worn out after Sunday, and the flight home yesterday….so, I’m thinking I may blow off the spin tomorrow, but, well, I’m thinking about it…I can do strength on Friday morning?…or do I bike to work?

It’s Thursday morning?……..yeah, I’m going to run…maybe swim..and then will use the afternoon to do the being a dad, a husband, and a son stuff done…….

maybe……..
