What a weekend

Monday, February 18, 2013

I LOVE OUR WEEKENDS! Donut man and I do so much fun stuff together. It amazes me what all we can get done in a weekend.

Friday night we went up to do some night skiing. It was a nice clear night and the stars and moon was out. Unfortunately it was warm so the snow was like skiing in wet concrete. We didn't get much skiing in but it was just enough that I got my 'exercise' min in. It was just a nice night for a sub sandwich and some quality time together out side of the house. In a healthy way.

Saturday was swim class in the morning! OMG! Three weeks ago I was so feed up with the amount of people swimming in practice and the fact that I couldn't get a good work out in that I left after about a half out of class. When you can only swim 3 strokes and then you are treading water for a min then swim three strokes, there is no way you'll get a work out in or make any progress. I didn't have the mental energy to fight with the people ect. So I left. I made a comment to the coach about it and promised I'd be back just not that day.

Last week was better. This week was an AWSOME SWIM! I had a sore shoulder from sleeping on the couch while sick on Wed, that I was working out some. So I started off slow. There was 5 in my lane including me. We did a drill set 4 times. Well I started passing the people in my lane slowly one by one... In the end I completely lapped the whole group! I was done with MY 4 times, and they had all just finished 3 times. What kind of a reward do I get from the coach??????? HA, he says.... You get to do 5! Go again!!!! LOL that will teach me.

After a awesome swim class, it's Bike ride day. This week we needed a 35 mile rolling hill ride. Well my husband found one for us right out of our house. IT was an awesome ride!!!!! Hard, and pushed me some. One big thing is on one of the hills I was able to STAND UP AND PEDDLE! That was a nice bad A$$ move!! It was cold and rained on and off but not too bad. We got home and 3 min after walking inside the sky just opened up and poured!!!!!

Sunday is Ski day! This weekend was the 3 amigos only skiing. We go with a friend and he's been taking his kids up every other weekend. We have finally gotten on schedule that we have family day and then we have 'adult day'. This was adult day! The storm that hit Saturday dumped snow on the mt. Groomed runs with a inch of fresh power on top. It doesn't get any better than that. We got 4 'first runs', or 'fresh tracks' in by 9:30! Then we just kept going. By the time we finished for the day we had skied for 3.5 hours!

Sunday night I had a triathlon club meeting. There was a talk about the importance of proper bike fitting. It was very interesting. They had raffle drawing for things. I wanted to win the bike fit one, but that didn't happen. I did win pink, calf compression socks! That was way cool and some thing I will use.

Then we tried on the race kit (clothing) that we will be getting. Yah well that was an experience. Most of the women there are um, lets say... flat chested. I'm not! Even when I was back down 20 lbs last year I still needed size L so that my chest would fit. And so you know those things don't make anyone look good.

Now here I am I have on a cammi top so I can try this on out in the main room. And triathletes aren't known to be too modest during race day. So I'm trying on the shirt in front of all these people with all my bulges bulging openly complaining about the chest part. To a bunch of guys and to flat chested women. I got no real sympathy.

So that was my weekend. I'm happy today is presidents day and I have it off of work. So I can catch up on a few things around the house, and some spark time.

(sorry for the long read)
