Angie e-mailed us a trainer workout so I set the bike up in the garage and hopped on. It was a tough one! There were all kinds of good exercises to simulate hill climbs and I tried to push hard. It is tough to work as hard at home compared to at class, but I think I did a good job today. By the time I was done the workout I was starving!!! Time to head in and throw together some dinner.
I also had a good swim this morning. I have been a bit hard on myself, thinking that I could not keep up the folks in my lane. Today it hit me – I can actually hang on to the toes of two other folks in the lane, there is just one guy who is super speedy that seems to get away from me. I think we are so quick to beat up on ourselves if we cannot meet whatever standard we have set (i.e. not getting dropped ever on the swim) versus seeing whatever progress we have made. So never fail to recognize what you have achieved!
As a total aside, the Biggest Loser just started up over here this evening. I CANNOT believe they are going to make them run a marathon!!!! Even making them run a half marathon seemed a bit mean since they had not trained for it, but a marathon is just ridiculous…if you ask me…
