Do you ever have one of those days where you feel invincible, like you could just go forever? Me, neither, but I totally had one today. There’s no real reason for me to be feeling so lively today. Heaven knows I didn’t fuel for a spectacular workout with last night’s dinner of half of a week-old Subway sandwich and a bowl of Honeycomb cereal. But I woke up rarin’ to go, so go I went.
My Easy 2 run started off easy enough, but I had a new playlist that got me super pumped and before I knew it my feet were flying. It’s impossible to run slow when Sean Paul is doing his thang in my ears. Perfect, cool and sunny weather and a huge negative split started my morning just the way I like it, so why stop there?
When I got home I did the Mom thing for a few minutes (“Did you eat breakfast? Have you brushed your teeth? Where’s your homework?”) and then hopped in the pool. We’re having a little heat wave this week – today is in the 90s – so my pool has warmed up to almost 70 degrees. Perfect, perfect swimming temperature in my opinion and time to break out Three Quarter Man, my sleeveless wetsuit. What? You don’t name your wetsuits?
I don’t know if it was my excitement about wearing Three Quarter Man or my new Swimsense lap tracker (full review coming soon, but I’ll tell you right now that this thing ROCKS for a nerd-tastic number cruncher like me!), but today was my fastest and bestest swim ever. I didn’t want to get out of the pool. I did, of course, because I had to go to work, but whatever.
Do you name your gear? (I do, obviously) Do you think of your stuff as having a personality or feelings? (again, guilty as charged)
