It's been a very busy weekend and I'm SO glad I have the day off tomorrow! Yay to celebrating labor :) Friday night Marty and I hosted a Master's swim team happy hour at our house, which I have to say was quite a success. You just never know when you announce something like that who is actually going to show up. We had most of the master's swimmers over here downing beers and having fun. Happy hour soon turned into a night party but everyone was out around 10:45pm, which was a good thing because Marty and I were up early the next morning to run a swim clinic at TAC.
The swim clinic was great, and tiring! I didn't manage to get in any training except for the few hundreds yards of drill demonstrations. By the time we got home Marty and I were both very tired, but we rallied for a fun dinner out with friends. Off to bed and up early again for a broken brick this morning.
It was hot! We've really been enjoying a mild summer here in NC, but this weekend's temperatures crept up and we were all big sweaty messes quickly into this workout. Everyone stayed tough, did great and went fast. Suffice it to say, I don't have much a chance at all of beating Marty at the Sandman triathlon in two weeks. This guy decides to workout for a couple of weeks and leaps over fitness levels like it's not hard at all. Hrmph.
I was feeling quite tired and worn out - not my best workout this morning, but still stayed on pace and finished strong. I know you can't feel good all the time and the key here is to not let it get to you and keep pushing with whatever effort you can muster. I felt MUCH better after some chocolate chip/peanut butter chip pancakes, bacon and sausage.
Did I mention I'm so happy I have the day off of work tomorrow?! Sa-Weet!
