Still feeling slightly funky, I'm sure it's mostly due to my lovely friend TOM, but I was feeling well enough by the time I got home yesterday that I did NOT want to just lay about, but also wasn't up to working out -- I did the best thing I could have done.
Cleaned up the house and did some laundry. *PHWEW*
It's funny how you don't really notice how a messy house brings stress until the RELIEF of how it feels once it's clean. I instantly felt MUCH more relaxed and happy once that was done. I've been so busy lately things had just been piling up in the front room. So I finally got all that under control. Then I had piles of clothes building up in the bedroom and closet.
Soooooo I did laundry and sorted all of it into keep and give away. I think I might have a few more things to get rid of, but I'm doing good.
I had a bag in my closet that had some things needing to be washed that I wanted to give away, so I finally got that clean. There's a lady at work that has dibs on it so I can't donate it to the Clothing Exchange team, but I'm very glad I finally DID that. She happens to be off of work today though, so it will sit in my trunk.
But this morning I BIKED and SWAM. No, neither felt amazing, but it did feel good to be DOING it again. I only had enough time to alot 15 minutes to each excercise, but I am very glad I did it anyway. My swimming was awful, but I'm glad I got back in the pool. I know I'm going to need to practice regularly to show any improvement, and my break definitely showed. My ARMS were getting SO TIRED!!!!
Also I weighed this morning at 178.4. :) It was my first chance to weigh in after getting over the weekend AND getting a good night sleep, so I WILL be updating my ticker. (It's a bit higher than my low points at the end of next week, so I'm confident I'm at least that low now after weekend recovery. Gotta try to NOT NEED weekend recovery anymore... :P)
I feel infinitely better today than yesterday. WOOHOO!!! I think I might just do ST tomorrow, if that, cause I want to get plenty of sleep again and tomorrow I have to be in earlier than today, but I'm off work on Saturday. So I plan to run on Saturday, bike on Sunday, and maybe then FINALLY I'll be on track with my pre-triathlon training program. :)
OH! And I also remembered to bring my trombone today, so in about 15 minutes I'm gonna go get in some practice. :D YAY!
