This weekend was great! I got to spend some time with the hubs which is always nice, saw Inception (Freaking Incredible!!!!! You need to see this movie!), and I got in some great workouts! Plus, we got our volunteer on, and worked the Air Show for a few hours Saturday morning. The hubs is second in charge at his squadron so it was kind of expected of us to be there and set a good example (which we did!). It was actually fun, and I got to meet more people from the squadron. I may have picked up some running and riding partners!!
We also joined the YMCA this weekend, and I got to check out the pool that I will be mostly using when we move into our house (Wednesday, hopefully!). It is only 5 minutes away from our house! It is a little drab even though it is new, but they have a swim suit spinner!!! The pool that I swam at in Germany was brand new and did not have one of these, and you don’t realize how useful and nice they are to have until you don’t have them! So, here is my new swimming home:
It’s only a 25 yard long pool instead of a 25 meter, but it does the job. I dragged my husband there with me, and we got a good workout in between trying to pull at each other’s legs and pulling each other under. We probably looked like teenage lovers flirting like crazy to the lifeguards, but we’ve been together 6 years and are just really immature.
Oh, and I thought that I would also introduce you to my “chamber of cycling hell” until my bike gets here with the rest of our household goods from Germany. It looks like I won’t be getting my bike until the 9th of August. Not that much longer! I’ve been riding in here admist a bunch of broken/ no clip-in bikes (except for one that I’m using) for 1-2 hour increments for the past two weeks.
This is my view from the bike. Yeah, not that interesting. Well, unless someone comes in the room to stretch or something, and then I get some entertainment that way. I wish I at least had a mirror in front of me so I could watch myself. At least that would keep me entertained for about 30 minutes of my ride. haha. Just kidding. Kind of. ;)
Yeah, I MISS my bike and riding OUTSIDE!!! But, beggars can’t be choosers, and I will do what I need to do (which is ride in here) until I get anyone’s bike to borrow or mine comes in.
Speaking of, I have found a bike to borrow. All I need to do is get it tuned up, and I will be on the roads once again. I heard it was heavy, but at this point, my bike won’t be here in time for my next triathlon coming up, and I haven’t been outside riding in a month! I think that I may only have a few more horrifically boring rides in here, then I will be outside!
Oh, and I also wanted to say thanks to all the great comments to my “mental health days” post! I was sort of debating even putting that post up, but I’m glad I did! I thought that was great that I wasn’t alone!
It’s a new week, peeps! You have a clean slate. Start it off right!!
