So December kicks off the start of the USAT National Challenge. I had so much fun last year with the DC Tri that I chose to do the challenge again this year. It's a great way to get motivated and get your butt off the couch in the off season.
Now of course with it being the off season and all, I allowed myself to have a little too much fun on Friday night which left me struggling with a hangover all day on Sat Dec 1st.
I had big plans to get in some miles on the first day of the challenge, but yeah. I took naps, ate bad food, and watched movies instead. I did manage to drag myself to the pool and get 3000 yards of death in
I was feeling much better on Sunday and kicked the day off with a 10k. It seemed pretty cold out even though I didn't start until 8:30am. After my run, I curled up on my couch freezing. I really couldn't get warm and figured a swim would be the best thing. So off to the pool both Jason and I went. It was one of the worst swims ever. I was breathing hard and struggling through sets of 100s. I finished out my mini tri with taking boomer out for a 26 mile spin. I over dressed and was hot most of my ride but hey I was riding outside so I was happy.
After basically doing an oly tri with food breaks in-between each sport I was dead tired. I wanted a nap, but I still had to take stuff back to Ikea. The worst store ever. After ikea and taking another food break. We made it home around 8pm. It was a long Sunday.
Lesson Learned. Don't drink on Friday night and ruin your Saturday. Although I think I will be saying the same thing next week while I'm having fun at some x-mas parties. After all it's the off season and I'm allowed to drink, right? But don't worry I will still get my miles in :)
Happy Monday All. Hope you had a great weekend :)
