Swim – there is a woman at my pool who often gets into the lane next to me. She is very round. I am not so round. I feel I should be able to glide through the water faster than her but no – not even close. I often watch her slide through the water like an eel, leaving me in her wake. She is not the only very round woman who does this to me. Where is my speed? WHERE?? I’m happy to say that it’s getting better and that I swam descending 100s on the 2 minute interval today but still – I find this all very annoying.
Bike– Bike is good. I still get my ass handed to me quite regularly by my riding partners Dana and Margaret but it’s okay – they work hard. Margaret and I rode Monday even though it was about 40 degrees and very foggy out. My pedals were sporting a pair of feetsicles, for sure. I think it might be time to put the bike in the trainer for a while and do some Endurance Nation Hurl Level 4 intervals, though.
Run – The run is okay, too. 10 minutes/mile feels kind of pokey and that’s new. My new thing is trail running which I love. I tried to run with Mr. Dog on our walk today and ended up having a very close and uncomfortable encounter with the asphalt. He’s just not ready to be a running partner but next time I try that I’ll be sure to be on the trail and not on the road.
Why Bother? – I had the opportunity to use an electronic device to measure my body fat today. My BMI was 22 something and my Percentage fat was 30. 30% fat. Not a happy thing. Fortunatly we have plenty of cookies around here to drown my sorrows in.
