Today I had a full day of workouts lined up; strength class in the morning, swim at lunch and run after work. Good thing I had taken a rest on Monday! You can imagine the number of bags I was hauling around, since I went straight to work from the gym.
It started with 6am Body Pump at my new gym. Thankfully Kelly was there to show me the ropes. It was a great class and I loved every muscle-quivering moment. Definitely going to be feeling that! My limbs already felt like noodles on the way out.
Next up I hit the pool to make up for skipping Monday night Masters. Usually I get an interesting crowd at the day-time swim and have all kinds of “encounters” during my workout, but today I enjoyed the lane all to myself almost the entire time. What a treat!
I had originally planned on a shorter swim so I could get back to work, but when I realized my pass had run out (and had to pay a full $5 to swim!), I decided to get the most out of it. 2050m and 43 minutes later, I headed back to work looking my best with goggle face and pool hair…
And finally, I went for a nice and easy 10K run after work. As much as I miss daylight in the evenings, there’s something so peaceful about running in the dark. This is the first time I’ve been out on a solo evening run for a while, since I usually opt to go in the morning with friends or over lunch, and I really enjoyed it. There are Christmas lights popping up all over the place now, too, which helps improve the darkened scenery.
