Rode (yes on the road and not on the trainer-don't die of surprise) with Doug at Dismal Swamp. Saw lots of bunnies, a fox, two snakes and a million horse flies. Good ride, no traffic. I just need to ride more. This was my first real ride (non-race and non-trainer) in aero. My arms and other parts were fatigued-just need to do it more. :)
This ride was what we chose for our date night. :) Of course topped off with freshening up, margaritas and mexican food. ;)
Taught two classes-one stretching and one cardio-just resistance for me.
Ran in the heat....tried to be smarter today to avoid organ failure. The only problem is that I like running because I can push and try to run faster (a recent discovery) or I can push to try to run farther. TOday I just had to settle for what I could do in the heat. Best ipod song on this run was Maroon 5-Harder to breathe....i know, I am a victim of pop culture. But it was rockin today. :)
That was a stupid-hot run. I think I am going to be sick-really. Kept my walk run pace of 10/1 for the first forty minutes and then started to get really overheated. So I dropped it to 5/1 and that slowy deteriorated to just survival running to make it home without dying. When I was in the shade I felt fine, but in the sun I was tooooo hot. The last five-ten minutes I had abdominal cramps-stomach and kidneys? Whatever is in my body on the sides and back-but different than a normal running stitch, real cramping. Yowch. I'm not sure how far I went...I'm guessing about 6. I am trying to build up my heat/run endurance for the RNR 1/2. ugh.
BUT, in the middle of this run and during a 10 minute DM Band song (played it twice I liked it so much), I got that perspective and clarity that only running can give me. Ahhh, better.
Taught a cardio class in the ghett-o. WIll count some as strength training.
No workout yesterday due to a sick (pukey) kidlet. Bennie stayed home from farm camp and hung out with me while I tried to make some progress on the unpacking and settling in of our new house. Doug got home late last night-such a sight for sore eyes. :)
No wonder I was so hot on the run! It was 96 degrees with 58% humidity! Yowch.
Drills and camp kids slowing me down. But a nice swim on a gorgeous day. Longer run planned for tomorrow. I am back to my two short/one long run per week to gear up for RNR. Whoohooo!
Body bar and push ups.
