Swim, Bike, Run!

Friday, April 26, 2013

Triathlon for me today or not? Well, maybe! This morning I had my heart set on an early swim, but one of my friends texted me last night, wanting to go for a run. So I said yes, and I went running with her after I got back from swimming. We had the best time! :D I usually run alone, in the dark, so no one can see the big fat chick running on the side of the road. But today, I ran in daylight, and with my friend. We only did 2 miles, and she is a much faster runner and more fit, but she was happy for the company, and honestly, I was happy to have company too. I can't believe I ran and didn't die! I told myself I wasn't going to run anymore after the tri last weekend, but today I felt good enough to run and I went.

Then, on this morning, someone posted that they were getting rid of a bike, and I jumped on the opportunity to grab that bike for my running friend. She was in an accident last year while riding her bike and was hit by a car. She was fine, but her bike was ruined! So she has been trying to decide if she should spend the money on another bike. We had so much fun riding last summer...and I got an email from the guy getting rid of the bike, and brought it home, pumped the tires, and took it for a spin. It's a mt. bike so it is heavy, and when we ride together, I'll have to ride my mt. bike, not my road bike. But sometimes you just have to say forget it, it's more important to do what you love with your friends and not worry so much about being fast. :) I'm so excited, just texted with her and she's so HAPPY. :D :D :D

So anyway yeah, I swam, ran, and biked today. ;)

My food is continuing to be GOOD!!! I went to lunch with husband today and I insisted on Subway because I can get lots of healthy choices there. He ate a footlong and was STILL HUNGRY!!! Not me though, I had the Smokehouse BBQ Chicken 6" and it was good. I brought an apple with me from home because I was dying for an apple all day, and my calories were perfect. Yesterday was good, and I feel really energized.

Well, I'm supposed to be online doing a chemistry assignment, so I guess I'd better go!!! Have a great weekend, everyone! IL will be nice so I plan to ride my bike!

    What an awesome friend you are!!! I am so happy you had a good run. I know how a lot of bad runs can leave a bad taste in your mouth.

    Yep - that's you! Congrats on a job well done and on your foot being OK. Also on doing well with lunch. Keep it up!

    I went for my first run/walk in a long time last night - I managed about 25 minutes of run 1 minute, walk 2 with a 5 minute warm-up and a 5 minute cool-down. The last time I went was February 10th - I'm not dieing today either!
