My body was apparently really tired all weekend because I just wanted to sleep in until 8 am every day. And yesterday was no exception. I had a tough time getting motivated to get in my workout yesterday, but by the time I finally arrived at the Y I didn't have nearly enough time to get everything in. I started running on the treadmill and I expected my legs to feel awful, but surprisingly they wanted me to keep speeding up. I was torn between running my entire 3 miles, or cutting the run short to get some weights in. I opted to cut the run short. Maybe I should have gone with the entire run since it was going so well. The weights... Not so much... I could tell immediately that my legs were still feeling the effects of my long run and bike from the day before and I couldn't lift anywhere near as much as I did on Thursday. I cruised through the weights then hurriedly showered and changed, but then found out that I wasn't needed to babysit my niece that afternoon. So I grabbed some lunch, went home, then fell asleep watching Pleasantville on TV and woke up to a ringing phone and Mean Girls on instead. Yeah...apparently I was tired. In the evening I went to hang out with my brother and sister-in-law where we closed out Thanksgiving weekend with some grilled turkey and cranberry sausages. Yum. All in all, it was a great weekend.
As a total aside, today I swam 600 m with flippers on for the first time. Wow! Do you feel like a speed demon with those on!!
