By golly, I actually had a weekend that slightly resembles triathlon training!
Saturday morning Run: Chose an out and back trail route (7.8 mmk) for Saturday morning. This turned out to be good for two reasons. First, it was partly shaded on a hot morning. Second, when I felt like quitting at 5.5 miles, I had no choice but to keep going to get back to the car! There's a reason I chose routes like this: one way or another, I *will* get my intended mileage in.
Saturday afternoon Ride: I had grandiose plans of a medium distance hilly ride with Husband. However, it was crazy hot (90+) and I was feeling it. This time we had a route that doubled back close to home a few time, giving me an option to bail. And I took it. At 9.5 miles, I was done. He, on the other hand, continued riding for another 30 miles. I guess I'm a hot weather wimp.
Sunday afternoon Swim: I actually got into a pool and swam! Not without a little drama though. The two best options for swimming based on where I live are a gym with a pool that requires monthly membership for access, and a community aquatic complex that is significantly less expensive, but non-ideal hours. Well, I tried going to the aquatic complex yesterday afternoon, but was turned away because they were at capacity. Doesn't matter how cheap it is if I can't get in to swim, right? So I headed straight to the gym and paid for a month so I could use the pool. I even got a lane to myself! So now to make it more economical, I just need to get over there and swim more often. And you know what? That might just be the motivation I need to swim regularly.
Side note: Still no rain! More closures in the bosque and foothills due to extreme fire danger. *sad face*
Edited to fix typos. I oritinally edited this on my tablet which did some interesting word substitutions. Note to self, blogs are best created wtih a keyboard!
