Well training last week finished up well. Thursday was a tough strength session on the bike, thanks to LL for riding with me- not sure I would have made it on my own. Friday was a good swim with my hubby. We rarely get to swim together anymore, since we can no longer have our Friday night swim dates (no lane swim here). It was nice to be lapped again (not!) and I always find I swim harder when he is there chasing me. Hopefully we can coordinate our schedules to have these swim dates every now and then.
Saturday we headed out for a run with the crew. I ran with the 'fast boys' and was able to hold on for about 10 of the 11.1km before they dropped my sorry butt. I still managed to finish under 55mins which isn't bad for a snowy, icy run. Sunday morning D was feeling like he was coming down with something and my whole body was hurting from a week of strength work. We decided to cancel our group spin session (sorry guys!) and take a rest day. And rest we did! Other than walking Harley I don't think our butts left the couch for more than 15mins all day :-) I'll be doing my bike today as it was to be my rest day. The snow is piling up again out there and the forecast shows a drop in temps over the week, so I guess winter isn't over yet. Boo.
In addition to the training we had some good fun on the weekend too. Thursday was D's bday of course, and he and I had our own private party for 2. It was a blast, and D almost stayed up until 11! Friday night we traveled back in time for an 80's shin dig to celebrate our friend Sonya's 40th bday. It was a lot of fun to dress up and then laugh at ourselves and everyone around us looking goofy. I was really impressed with some of the costumes that showed up. People actually saved clothes from high school, and Sonya changed outfits throughout the night showing off some her favorites from the day. My fav was the turquoise blue unitard. Very Jane Fonda.
Here are some fun pics from the week:
