Allied Medal Display Giveaway!

But first you have to read about ME…

Yesterday was a great workout day. I went to spin as usual on a Friday morning. I love the Friday AM spin instructor BUT Friday I am 99% certain she had crack for breakfast. I have no idea what got into her but I was dying. With 15 minutes left in class I felt like I couldn’t make it. She said “Turn it up!” and I ignored her. She said, “FASTER!” and I ignored her. She said, “Pick it UP!!!” I pretended she wasn’t there. She busted out singing Shakira and her legs were going like mad.  Me? I was dripping sweat and felt like I was spinning in mud. Needless to say when class was over I was happy to be alive. I stumbled to my car and drove to the pool.

Once in the pool I had my new workout all ready to go, the same one I emailed to Kerrie at Mom Vs. Marathon. I was happy to give a new workout a try, plus my list of old workouts got wet and moldy and I haven't had time to redo them yet. I had put all my workouts on a small piece of paper, “laminated” them with tape, and safely shoved them in a Ziploc baggie ( a trick I learned from Kerrie when she put her cell phone in a Ziploc baggie for our Million Inch Run). It worked until I opened it up during a swim to flip to a new page and must not have zipped it locked and the rest is history…

I ended up swimming 1700 yds and worked on building speed.

Old workout list with 15 different workouts:

New workout, 1 at a time:

I made plans to go for a short run with Sarah, AKA Mom of the Littles (first blog debut HERE at Seattle RnR 2010) after our swim. She too will be making the trek from NC to Seattle in June for Seattle RnR!! So exciting! It was great to catch up and run with a fellow X-PNWer. We even reminisced about RED and how we missed our running buddy.We headed out a little after 12 and it was already sunny and warm. I got a sunburn. I shudder to think of all the different tan lines that will never even out. Anyway, I look forward to more runs with Sarah, including Seattle Rock n Roll half!

So I guess Friday I did a triathlon of sorts, only a little out of order and with strange distances. I felt really good on the run, my legs, despite nearly falling off in spin, felt surprisingly fresh. A little bit of a confidence booster is always nice.

Now—I just have to think about WHERE on my awesome Allied  Medal Display will I put my 70.3 medal??? Maybe I’ll have to get a new one just for triathlons?
