I am so excited for this week. The light workouts after the marathon are done and I'm excited to start building intensity back in.
Anyhow, first things first...dinner on Monday night. I gained some inspiration from the latest Food & Wine magazine and made a pork tenderloin and some spaghetti squash on the side. Loved the pork...but the squash wasn't my favorite. I've got a few wines in my basement that I've been hanging on to for awhile. I had a bottle of See Ya Later Ranch 2002 Pinot Noir, which probably shouldn't be cellared for too much longer. So time to open it up. Just out of curiosity I counted how many bottles I've got right now - 80. I don't even have enough rack space... I'm really not sure why I have a 10 lb weight underneath that cart there. One of my favourite things is hanging on the wall above the racks. A little brush with fame that I had back in maybe 1987..??I had the biggest crush on Michael J. Fox back then. We had just flown into Vancouver from Bogota, Colombia and had gone out for dinner at a nearby restaurant. Michael J. Fox is a good BC kid and he just happened to be at the same restaurant. When I saw him in person I pretty well clammed up and just stared at him. Classy Leana. Thank goodness for the nice maitre d' who helped me to get an autograph. I still have the children's menu that he signed.
Back to the workouts... Um...I kind of arrived a bit late to swimming this morning. Oops. As soon as I got in the water I felt amazing. Everything was clicking. I had that same catchy T-Pain song in my head almost the entire time. Every once in awhile a snippet of Beyonce's Single Ladies crept in my head. Um...it is kind of an annoying song...but it did make me swim fast... I love it when things come together in the pool!
Tonight's spin class at Bow was fantastic!! Work was pretty quiet today so I had some pent up energy I was looking to release. It was a workout from the word go - including the warm up. We did some long single leg low cadence intervals...which I loved... We did plenty of stuff in a hard gear and I worked my tail off. I'm not sure that I've seen my heart rate get that high on a spin before, or spend so much time in a high heart rate zone.
Tomorrow I've got a 5 mi run with a cadence drill at the end. It looks like we might get above freezing tomorrow so it should be a good run. Fingers crossed my legs will have some juice in them!
