I am just sick and tired of the cold. At least the last two mornings I have been able to watch the sun come up over the Potomac as I drove to work. That means it is not cloudy and the days are getting longer. Spring has to come sooner or later—I am hoping on sooner.
Saturday and Sunday I donned my Army suit for the first time since returning from Afghanistan and it was back to the one weekend a month thing. It has been nice to be off, but I can’t complain about the additional cash. Plus it was good to see all the folks I haven’t seen since we got back. The down side is not really any time to get in a workout.
I did not work out Monday morning. I just did the weigh for our Family and Friends Biggest Loser. I was not pleased, but I had a fair amount of alcohol and really bad food as I watched the game. I was only down half a pound. Whoops. So Monday after work (the weather was fairly nice) I hit the road for a painful 4 miles. The first half of the run I could not get loose nor really work up a good sweat. According to my training plan I was only suppose to run 3 miles. Since I am still learning all the side streets in the new neighborhood (yes I did Map My Run, but..) I took a wrong turn and ended up doing 4 miles. The second half was much better than the first half, so I will categorize it as a good thing.
Tuesday morning I was up and hopped on the trainer for a 10mile spin. In the new house I have my own office/workout room. I love it. I mounted a TV on the wall so I can watch TV, a DVD, or stream Netflix. I will have to get pictures up soon. Tuesday afternoon I did an ab workout. This morning, it was effing cold so I opted to do another ride instead of a run. For entertainment during the ride I streamed an old George Carlin HBO Special, “Doin’ It Again”. I forgot how funny that man is.
This afternoon I am scheduled for some speed work in the pool. I hate sprints.
Now off to earn a living.
