….or more properly known as- 🇲🇽Cinco de Mayo🇲🇽. I just like to call it that because it’s another excuse to have a cocktail during the week! 😉 Sadly, I am here at basketball practice and NO liquid libation is coming my way! 🍻😢 #storyofmyLIFE
I was able to get a run in before getting the boys. My running buddy (RB) Leslie had to work today.Truth be told, I almost talked myself out of it. We all know how easily we can do that to ourselves! But there is something about having GOALS and a little WILLPOWER that holds you accountable and make makes you change your mindset!! #runGIRL
Yesterday I finally got my BUTT in the pool! Triathlon season is in full swing and if I have ANY aspirations of doing well, I’ve got to get swimming. I can’t seem to get to open swim in Valrico (where I live) because of….well….EVERYTHING. What does a working mom DO that works 50 minutes from home? Swim close to work, of course!!!!😉. There is a pool about 15-20 minutes from work and literally down the street from Julian and Aidan’s school. PERFECT!!!The open swim was on $2 and it was well spent!! I only had 25 minutes because I got there a little later than I expected and needed to get going! My workout:
- 200 m warm up Freestyle
- 100 m easy
- 5 x 50m at :60
That was all I had time for and I was pretty happy. Better than NOTHING, right? I used to be a competitive swimmer, from 7th grade to 11th. I think my triathlon love comes from the fact that I have “unfinished business” from my swimming days. I stopped because I was burned out. 2 hour practices after-school and weekend (while friends get to hang out,etc), meets Saturday’s (while everyone sleeps in), smelling like chlorine ALL THE TIME….you get the picture. But it was something that I LOVED and had some decent skills. I got tired of working hard and hitting a plateau….so I stopped, much to the chagrin of my partners and coaches. As adulthood set in and I started to feel like I had some “business” to finish. Enter….TRIATHLONS…..I haven’t looked back.
I hope you were able to enjoy your Cinco de Mayo…
