I allowed myself to sleep in this morning, and decided that my morning workout would consist of 4 eggo chocolate chip waffles. Why? Because Eggos are awesome. Plain and simple. By the time I was ready to call it a day at work, I was itching to hit the gym and work off the whackadoo. So I boogied over to the gym and beat the living crap out of myself again.
- 1200 yard swim. I really need to begin swimming in a wetsuit – swimming in cold water is NOT turning me into Mr. Happy Go Lucky…..One guy asked me “Excuse me – is the water warm?” I replied “Oh absolutely – I’m sweatin’ like a pig over here.” Then he hops in and yelps aloud “YOU LIED!” …and my response: “…Yup. Time for others to share my dread.” Do I feel guilt? NOPE. ….ok, moving on…..
- 22 mile bike. Here I tried to simulate the crankiness I’m going to feel as I hop out of the water and transition to the bike during Ironman. Sure enough, the Tool Factor was cranked up to an 8.5 by the time I clipped in. Then the music comes on……do they play AC/DC? Nope. RUSH? Nah. Zed Zep? NO WAY. Metallica? Ha. What was the first song to blare over the speakers? “…..Ooooops I did it again…..” I’ll admit it: I dry-heaved a bit. The tunes only got worse from there. There is no good reason to EVER be subjected to Brittney Spears and THEN the Jonas Brothers.
- 2.75 mile run. After the spin class, I changed my shirt and hopped on to the dreadmill. Warmed up with a mile, then timed myself for 1200 meters, and then cooled down with a mile.
- I finished up the evening with some strength and core work and some stretching. By the way – if you want to laugh, watch me attempt to touch my toes. I gave up and simply waved at them. Not even close.
By the time I got home….I was too tired to even eat anything. All I wanted to do was sleep.
