So it’s been two weeks since I decided not to do the Half-Ironman. And I still feel great about the decision, so it was certainly the right one right now.
What have I been up to since then?
It should surprise nobody that I’ve been to Uplift three times.
One regular class, one “triathlon” and one Workout + Wine.
I went to SoulCycle once with a coworker.
I ran two loops of Prospect Park yesterday with coworkers. (The two champs who ran the Brooklyn Half as their first halfs are now training for their second halfs. YES! CONVERTS.)
Today, I intended on getting back on the bike but I only had a limited time window to get ‘er done, and I am an idiot. I took off both wheels to get the bike into the car coming back from the Hamptons two weeks ago, and I’m having trouble getting the back wheel back on. Back to the bike store when I have a minute…
I was weirdly sore but still wanted to get something in today, so I did two of our DailyBurn workouts – an ab one and a yoga one.
I also have swum a few times — I started really really enjoying it while tri training. My gym isn’t cheap though (oh hai, NYC) so I’m trying to decide if it’s worth it to keep the membership if I’m only going to swim maybe once or twice a week for funsies.
Also, I’ve been really inspired by Kristine’s Whole 30 challenge, so I’m thinking of doing something similar. Either way, I need to clean up my diet (and my finances) a bit, so cooking more whole foods at home wouldn’t hurt anything. Grace also had an awesome post lately about slowing the eff down (my words, not hers) and now that summer’s coming to a close, that wouldn’t be a bad idea for me to do the same.
P.S. I am kicking and screaming internally that summer is nearly over.
Et toi? What kind of workouts have you been doing lately? What’s on your mind?
