Active Fun

Thursday, April 11, 2013

Enjoyed the senior dance with my husband this morning. That's our third time attending and I suspect that when we don't have the grandkids we will go. It's fun! Each time we seem to be dancing more, too.

This afternoon I got in my easy training run. I walked 10 minutes, ran 1.1 miles in about to 10 minutes, and walked another 10. Then I weeded for a while outside, too. It was 88 degrees and 48% humidity. For my race on Saturday, 70 degrees is predicted with 90% humidity. The race I'm training for on May 11th at 7pm will probably be closer to the 88 degrees. Just need to be flexible.

Tomorrow morning I have a swimming lesson with my coach. I call her my running coach, but she trains for triathlons, too. She is actually a professional cyclist at this point in her career. Hope she can give me a few pointers on my breathing when I do the crawl.

This eve our local SparkTeam is getting together for dinner. It will be fun, too!! Hope all my SparkFriends are having fun AND success!!

    How nice to dance together! DH hasn't danced since our wedding.
Oops, he must have danced at our daughters' weddings too. But that's about it.

    That's my kind of activity!!
I love dancing--I just wish I was better at it, but I'm ok just winging it--I do wish my OH wasn't so self-conscious about his dancing--he's getting more comfortable though every time we have a dancing opportunity :)

    What could be better than activity that is fun AND keeps you moving?

I am so encouraged and inspired by your joy de vivre. Would you agree that these are the best times of your life? It sure sounds like it from here!!!! emoticon

    You're swimming has been on my mind a lot. Another factor that probably is making your breathing harder is your fitness! I'd forgotten. When I was obese I could lay in the water and just relax; very bouyant! When I got lean and had more muscle floating wasn't nearly as easy. I had to keep my lungs full to keep my face above water on my back. Where before I could float at the surface effortlessly, now just holding my breath and laying back I'm a few inches under the surface if I don't inflate myself or use my hands. I'm sure you are riding lower in the water as you do the crawl now than when you swam before. Glad you're getting some coaching and having so much fun being active! Stay with it! emoticon
