Usually riding my bike during the week involves my bike trainer and a Tivo'd version of The Biggest Loser... all strategically planned around a baby's naptime. But not today!!
Since Grammy is still here, I got to go outside. And climb some hills. On my road bike. Man, I totally forgot how much I love doing that.
I went to this hill and did repeats up and down for an hour. It was awesome.
I can't say exactly where all my motivation is coming from, but I feel like I'm on fire right now. Jen sends me my workouts and I yelp outloud with glee (seriously, outloud) when I see something that's supposed to be HARD.
Tomorrow we get to try again to make 100's in the pool on an interval we've never made before. I think we're gonna make 'em tomorrow. Then Thursday is something insane on the track. I'll admit, I was all psyched when I first read the workout... of course, the more I think about it, the more it's occurred to me that wow... it might be really hard to go that fast for that long... but I still can't wait to try!
Too bad I can't bottle up this motivation. I know these feelings don't hang around like this year round, so I'm trying to soak 'em all up right now. 4 1/2 weeks til Honu. BRING IT!!
