Apparently I need to resort to lists this week, but what better way is there to string together a bunch of random thoughts? :)
- Boy oh boy, do I wish I could wear sweat pants and yoga pants to work every day. They are so comfy! We do have a dress code at work though, so really…that would be frowned upon. I firmly looked upon leggings with the same aversion that
my thighsI had for skinny jeans. Until I discovered the leggings and dress combo. I kind of feel like I am cheating the dress code since it is so comfortable. Given that I held out on the leggings bandwagon for so long I’m sure they will go out of style soon and I’ll have to wait another 20 years to wear them again.
- I met up with Kelly today to run hill repeats. It was 2C, overcast and incredibly windy and I swear that I stared out the window for five minutes trying to figure out what to wear. I opted for tights, a long sleeve shirt and a vest which worked out to be the right combination. We warmed up with a 15 minute run towards McHugh Bluff by the Calgary Curling Club, then proceeded to knock out our 5 x 2:00 hill repeats. If one good thing can be said about the wind, it is that it was pushing us up the hill. We took turns leading – Kelly really knows how to tackle the hills so I enjoyed chasing her, and it was also motivating to pull her up the hill too. Company made a tough workout a lot more fun. We did our cool down run and even ran through a few strength moves – squats, lunges, tricep dips and push ups. These might not have happened if I was on my own!
- Yesterday my dad called and asked me what day I was planning on leaving the Okanagan for home after Ironman Canada. Hard to believe it, but I haven’t done any trip planning so far this year! By this time last year I had all my hotels booked for my Lake Stevens – Washington road trip. Guess it is time to start figuring a few things out…a trip to BC for the WCOC Olympic Triathlon plus maybe a DIY training camp, our Team Tri Life July training camp, and of course my IMC trip!
OK, time to get to the pool!
