Handed my own ass to myself today
Today was a tough workout. I had the day off for bereavement leave, which is a bit of a strange thing as I do actually feel bereaved, and being at home – not on my regular schedule- did nothing to improve this feeling.
I miss Grandma…or the idea of Grandma or something like that.
Anyway, yesterday I told the coach that I did have the day off and that I could do a longer workout if he would allow it.
The workout seemed to take 3 hours, but in reality it took about 1.5-2 hours. I just had some fiddling moments as I got to the gym at lunch hour and a lot of people I know from work were giving me the look…I guess I am not supposed to go to the gym while on leave. Sometimes living in a very microscopic town is a problem.
I swam, then hopped out and ran…then hopped back in and swam, then again out and ran.
Covered about 2 miles in the pool and 3 on the tarmac.
By the end I had generated a ton of laundry…I got a sun burn…(yes, I live in Florida, I know it is February but I got a sunburn because I forgot sunscreen., my Massage guy noted it.) and I felt as if I had been placed in a washing machine a few times…
Made some commentary tot he coach about this being a tough one. He replied that it was AWESOME…we parted ways.
I do hope this helped in the fitness building arena. and I will be glad to be back at work tomorrow. bereavement leave did allow me to process the situation a bit, and it allowed me some much needed focused study time, but I need to be back at work- if only to avoid that kind of a workout again!
