rain makes a change in workout

This am I was planning on doing a swim and then a nice long bike ride outside. I had a sitter for the girls.

I went to the swim and it was FREEZING, and i don't have a wet suit. I believe the water was 69 degrees. Somebody said something about westerly winds that blow the top of the ocean off out to sea and the cold water from the bottom comes to the top. All I know is it was icy cold. but I did it. It took a while for me to be able to put my face in the water without gasping. I have to say it was empowering that I did it.

As we got out, it started raining. My towel was sopping wet. I was so bummed b/c I really want to get a long bike ride in and I didn't want to rush to a spin class. So I figured I would get an interval run in on the treadmill at the gym. However, as I was driving it stopped raining and I thought hummmmm, i could go to the track and do my interval workout there. It was great !!! I was so happy to be able to get a workout at the track done.

Tomorrow I will do spin class - since the little ladies have no sitter and will have to come to the gym with me.

Nutrition front. A good snack is whole wheat toast with peanut butter. we have not had pb in the hosue b/c my youngest is allergic. i have used other nut butters. but hubby bought some PB into the house and i had some toast with it.....yummmmy. i forgot about the taste of PB.


  1. YAY for PB. I don't think I could go more than 4 days without it. YUM. Ennjoy the spin class tomorrow.

    I LOVE THEM [when I'm done with them]. ;)

  2. That sounds cold--you are brave! Glad you got in a track workout!

  3. Wow..69 degrees is cold! Good for you for getting out there and doing your swim anyways! I think I would have gone home and snuggled in the covers...ha ha!

  4. Wow that's a cold swim--good for you!

  5. Sounds like you adapted to the weather great and got in some great workouts!

  6. Glad you worked all your training in.

    I am so glad I don't have or have to worry about kids with allergies! I'd be a nervous wreck!
