core work...as prescribed

Nom nom nom...hill repeats!  I don't like them, they are hard, but I got STRONGER today.  Yeah baby!

Dropped my better half off at the airport, went straight to the gym and got my run on.  No dreading, no waiting till 1 to finally get going.  I decided it was foolish to waste so much engergy avoiding something I'd end up doing anyhow.  I'll avoid laundry instead!  :)  It was hard, I was a sweaty mess, I rocked my skirt and BT RAWK SQUAD shirt, and I love getting stronger. 

The day is going to be productive...time to get things done!  Oh, and SUNSHINE is AWESOME!

OU pool with Coach Bonnie and team...filmed in water, drills and 1 200 at the very end

Biked, ran and swam...updates in the morning...I'm full of Joannes red wine and pooped, plus (bahhhh) it's a school night!
 

*Foggy easy peasy spin with Pammy and Jules.  Was glad I had the underarmor top and my team jacket!  The sun finally came out with about 15 minutes left in the ride.  But it is soooo spring.  The spring peepers were just a singin' their sexy song! LOVE LOVE LOVE hearing the spring peepers sing while I ride! It makes me happy!!! 

So I went from knickers and underarmor to a running skirt and sleeveless top.  The heat affected my hr on this little run!  My tummy got a bit grumpy too, and when I decided to run through the little tiny trail by the school(which was toooo muddy), a tree bit me, but who cares!  Sun, wind, warm.  Yessss!

Then after some food, I went to OU for my first team swim with Bonnie.  We started from square one with very basic drills, got ourselves taped above and below the water and did a 200 to finish.  But the best part is that I got pulled over before the swim on campus, and DIDN'T get a ticket.  So deserved one, but the luck of the irish was with me!  Thank goodness! :)*

Ate like an oinker last night at J. Alexanders with Dave.  Wine, check.  Steak, check. Smashed garlic taters, check.  Giant carrot cake with frosting, check!  We shared all of the above and a cobb salad ( I had some, not tons) but MOOOOOO!  Big number on the scale today.  :(  I've been having a hard time being motivated to eat cleanly.  I bet my eat clean mojo is hanging out at a bar drinking and smoking big fat stoagies with my swim motivation.  :(

Well, tonight was power test night and after a day off from training yesterday (don't be fooled...I worked my fanny off de-crapping my son's room with him...lots of toting and lugging and up and down the stairs...but very statisfied with with the results!)  I had hopes of a great test, but it didn't go so hot.  It hurt like hell and I wanted to quit about 10 minutes in, but I figured I'd suffered through almost all of it, so finish it out.  And I did.  The bonus is I was the least stressed I've ever been about a test.  The more frequent testing is teaching me to suffer I suppose.  I didn't get my new number yet, but my guess is just a tad up or down. 

Yoga beforehand was restorative, but man, it is soooo hard!!!  I love Andrea's yoga!  It's a hoot to watch my teammates try and get bendy...we are all so NOT bendy!  Except for our teacher of course! :) 

Tonight, compression tights, tomorrow DAY OFF...AGAIN!  Woot!  I may even try to squeeze a massage in there, or an ART appointment.  We shall see!
