This morning I woke up to a beautiful sunny day and noticed the thermometer reading, 16°F! Oh my! (As Dorothy would say.) I’m not ready for this yet weather yet. (Dorothy didn’t say the weather part, just the, “Oh My!”)
I bundled up and took the dog for a walk. My nose is now red and runny! And my hand is freezing from talking to my mum on the phone while I walked the dog.
Afterwards, I went up to the garage and pulled out a couple of boxes of my old, but never been used, tri stuff. I got a new pair of TYR googles out and found I have a bunch of Insport clothing and some old Team Canada garb from 1993.
As you can see I’m working on my goal for this week of heading to the pool and touching the water. Next step is actually going over to it and getting in. Unless I add a step of going over to look before I go over to get in. The progress is sometimes slow, but as long as it’s still progress, you can’t really complain.
Yesterday I got in my 20 minute run. First one is always fun, until the next day or two. My legs are a little tender today and I make faces when I sit down. But it’s all part of the process and actually fun for me. In a few weeks I’ll be able to run for 45 mins without any trouble. Then I’ll introduce some track sessions and the soreness will be back for a few more days! Then…. It’s a process and I enjoy it, all.
