the instructor was even out of commission - she just had major knee surgery - but is so good at what she does that she can instruct without having to actually do it herself. As for me, well, something about that little flashing number on the display made me work harder that usual. I had sweat pouring down me, something that I normally hate and avoid even while knowing it's good for me.
So I know what I must do now.
avoid this class like the plague because I hate sweating Make sure I go to this class weekly, and see if there are other heart zone classes I can attend.
- 3 more full days of teaching left (Goal: stay calm as the days wind down and the kids become increasingly destructive and sullen. At this point, they are peeling the edging off the tables and putting holes in the walls in the hallways.)
- 4 days to marathon #7, the Ogden Marathon (Goal: 5:30? Is that even possible for me?)
- 25 days left to my next sprint triathlon. The last time I did this one, it took me 1:47. My goal would be to do it faster than that.
- 40 days left to the ice bath Ironman Coeur D'Alene. Goal: A far less dramatic finish than IM-Loo, in under 17 hours. My cold water swim training begins May 25th.
Current mood: anticipatory
Current weight: 157. And holding. The mother's day pizza didn't help, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. As my weight goal for IM-CDA is 145, I'm beginning to wonder if I'll make it.
