Riding - half check - once a week, hardly worth it BUT it is an ass kicking ride so...I change that to a check
Swimming - three-four times a week - two checks
Weights/Abs - three times a week - check
PT and standing on one leg exercises - three times a week...and costs the most, WTF?So there it is, I'm feel totally lame-o. Swimming yardage hasn't been huge since I'm not kicking yet. All sets (for me) are just pulling and by the end of 2500-3000 my arms are shot and I have to get out or I'll sink. Cycling is good and I WILL do more of it this week, got the go ahead from Mr. PT. Running, still no running.
This is not my dog but I bet this will be me at the end of next week....as I work through my next challenge for 2009....
On to the next challenge for 2009 - it was #1 on the list, go vegetarian for one week. I have spent at least four hours on trying to figure this thing out. I haven't even started the challenge (to commence tomorrow) and it's pretty confusing for a non-vegetarian, like myself. I'm mostly concerned with protein sources, how to get em, how not to just eat a damn salad everyday and how am I going to pass up the smell of delicious bacon, mmmm, bacon. Anyway, did you know there's like a gazillion kinds of tofu? Baked, firm, extra firm, soft, seasoned, blah, blah, blah. I'm figuring this is going to be a good source of protein for this next week. There's only so many damn nuts I can eat. I'm not going for the full monty, er, vegan. I will use eggs, milk and cheese. I felt really great when I did my 5 a day challenge but have been a total schmuck on getting it to stick. If nothing else, I'll learn some new veggie recipes to supplement future meals.
DA moment of the week....Excel Swim 5am, leaving house at 445, driving down the interstate and feel the need to spit (head cold, won't give you the loogey details, OK I just did). I'm thinking that I really perfected my spitting skills this last year on the bike, how hard can this be. Apparently, very hard. Riding and spitting at 19mph not the same as driving and spitting at 75 mph, the wind up, the spit, bam, right down the door of my car. Damn it all to hell, it's freezing out and I don't want looge frozen on the car sooo, I wipe it off. No problem. BUT THEN, I'm walking out after swim, dressed for work, make up on, hair did, and I wind up and spit again (YES, headcold is rolling). Did you know this is not really an acceptable habit in our culture? Yeah, I do too but I wasn't even thinking about it. On a bike, on a run, snot rockets are perfectly acceptable, NOT when your dressed for work. Beware of the spitting lady leaving the pool, apologies to my unsuspecting victims.
