Iâ€™ve currently following a 10K running plan from Train Like a Mother (and by â€˜follow,â€™ I mean I do the workouts in whatever order I can muster), and today was a XT day â€“ also known as cross training day. Yippee! I have to admit â€“ although swimming is my favorite sport, I always slack on pool time when I am not training for a triathlon. And I doubly slack in the colder months. Itâ€™s hard to get in the pool when you are already freezing.
I spy changing leaves!
My swim didnâ€™t start until it was almost 7 but heyâ€¦ a womanâ€™s got to do what a womanâ€™s got to do. Get it DONE.
1,000 yards and home just in time to rock Henry to sleep. Swim, Rock, Blog! <â€”the new tri.
I solemnly swear to at least make a serious effort to swim once a week until triathlon season returns. I just need to remind myself how fun it is and that the initial freeze doesnâ€™t last past the first 50 yards!
The rest of my day was filled with lots of baby fun, including a visit from my friend Heather and her little one, Mirabelle. Bells was born just five days after Henry, so itâ€™s fun to swap stories and advice. Heather is going through all the sleep drama that Iâ€™m experiencing right now, too. Oh, sleepy (and un-sleepy) babies.
I actually got to play with Mirabelle because H was asleep for almost the entire visit! That also meant that I had two free hands to make this delicious lunch.
Quinoa, collard greens, carrots, and onions with hard-boiled eggs. Didnâ€™t mean to eat eggs twice today â€“ whoops.
Time to tucker in. The water exhausted me!
