I worked late (for me), drove home in the rain and immediately put on my lounge around the house outfit. Once those clothes are on, they aren't coming off for anything! Hence, I didn't head out to the evening lap swim time after dinner. I've never swam after dinner. I wonder if it's really crowded? Late afternoon is never crowded, if I can just get my tasks done at work in time.
Therefore: Wednesday = rest day.
2. Ever since reading the Metabolic Effect Diet book, I don't feel guilty about skipping a non weights workout. I can usually stick to my weekly plan, but if a swim, yoga or run get swapped for a rest day, no sweat (literally).
The ME plan is weights and walking (and diet changes). For me, that puts weights as my #1 priority each week.
3. Yesterday, the weights were #1. I woke up early, zoomed downstairs and completed my circuits and superset. There was no time to dilly dally, as I (somehow) had talked Trisha into meeting in my driveway for 6 miles.
4. I wish I had pictures of our run. But, in that much wind and rain, iPhones should be left safely at home. Our route was two three mile loops. We ran by two different parks, where the creeks were overflowing their banks and flooding the sidewalks. Trisha kept asking, "what are you doing to me!?!"
I haven't run in that much consistent rain in awhile. Always grateful to face that kind of weather with a buddy. Running in wind and rain solo is, well, lonely.
|The weather is so depressing, I splurged and bought daffodils this week. Spring is coming!|
Good luck to everyone racing tomorrow and Sunday!
And, to all of the high school basketball teams vying for state tournament spots tonight! A's team must win, then they are on to the Final 8 at Matthew Knight Arena in Eugene next weekend.
