I keep thinking itâ€™s Thursday. Damn.
Henry enjoyed deconstructing and eating his breakfast flower very much.
My breakfast was just a normal, boring breakfast. No art! There is only so much this mom is capable of when itâ€™s Wednesday but she thinks itâ€™s Thursday AND sheâ€™s out of coffee creamer.
So â€“ about that indoor triathlon that Iâ€™m doing on the 31st. I signed up for the long course (600 yard pool swim, 10 mile indoor bike, 3 mile treadmill run) but Iâ€™m having massive second thoughts, only because my chest is killing meâ€¦ again. Remember how it started to nag me a bit in September while I was training for the Half Ironman? Well, the pain went away for three weeks after the race (no swimming), but then I swam twice and â€“ TADA! â€“ the pain is back. Ugh. So frustrating. Iâ€™m not sure if Iâ€™m going to:
- Skip any form of swim training and do the long course on race day. I can definitely â€˜phone inâ€™ 600 yards.
- Skip any form of swim training and do the short course on race day.
- Or see if I can skip the swim entirely on race day.
We shall see.
Until then, Iâ€™m sticking to running and biking to get ready. I was super excited this morning because itâ€™s actually sunny and warm (well, 50 degrees), which meant that running outside would actually be enjoyable! I think I was pushing it a bit with shorts, though.
Henry was comfy cozy in his pajamas and â€˜jack.â€™ (Heâ€™s eating a peeled apple in that pic, in case youâ€™re wonderingâ€¦)
We did 3.0 miles together in about 28 minutes. Pretty speedy with the stroller.
