Yikes, the pool was so cold tonite at swim class that now I am super sleepy!
Basically, today was an almost exact replica of last Wednesday. I live further from the bakery now, so it was a 4:30am alarm this morning. Bakery until 12, teaching till 4:30- then play time! I got off the freeway at the same 'random' spot as last week (although it was less random because I had done it once before!) Parked in Karl's Cabin parking lot and did a quick change and was off on my 7 mile loop (just like last week = all I have time for before swim class.) I wasn't expecting much and gave my legs complete license to go slow because M, T, Th, and F are all pretty intense days for me this week workout-wise. I was really happy with how good my legs felt when I got up this morning/throughout my 12 hour workday. Didn't feel like I ran hard last night at all! :) Once I got going on my loop, they just wanted to GO. So I let them. I enjoyed the rolling hills, dirt roads, and horse (and alpaca!?) farms even more than last week. Like always, avoided looking at my Garmin, because I didn't want any pace pressure today. Finished a 'frisky' 7 miles at 7:38min/mile pace. Only regret is that I didn't have time to go further!
Then, I got in the car and continued on to swim class. It was awesome because for the second week in a row, I was the only one who showed up for my class! Sooo it was basically a private lesson! The pool was so chilly but my effort swimming quickly warmed me up!
Tomorrow is my last day teaching before break! :) So happy. My only wish is that the day wasn't so long. I love me 'Triple Thursday' but I wish I didn't have to get up so early to get it all in!
Ok, my eyes are literally closing- I'm off to bed! :)
