It's Wednesday....last day of the week for me. Thank goodness!!!!
Well....except for the whole having to use 2 days of vacation thing.....I hate mandatory vacations sometimes!
Not that I want to be here.....hell no!
I'd just rather use vacation when I want to. Like, next week....when family is in town. I'll see them this weekend though, and I can't wait!!!! Paddling out at DeSoto, maybe some biking?
I need to keep active on the weekends...so being out at the park will help me with that.
Especially if I actually want to maybe even seriously consider thinking about possibly maybe signing up for a duathlon in September.
Oh yeah....I've officially lost my mind!!!
Actually, for the past 2 weeks, I've been getting up before work and running at the gym. I haven't talked about it here, because I have another blog where I whine and cry about working out, trying to lose all that birth control weight (long story)...and all that other boring stuff people really don't want to read. :-)
It's going quite well....but ask me again after 10 weeks.
After watching the triathlon this weekend, and seeing the vast range of people participating, it really got me thinking. Why the heck couldn't I do a triathlon??
"Nej, you hate the water."
So I started researching other events.
Marathons - hell no. Not just hell no, but hell friggin' no.
1/2 Marathons - see "marathons."
5K and 10K - I'll give those a shot for sure.
But duathlons really caught my eye. Running, which I'm finding that I actually kinda enjoy, and biking....which I also find a pleasant experience.
There is a duathlon in West Des Moines (come on Omaha - get it in gear!! I'm sick of driving to Des Moines for all the fun stuff!!!) in September.
The stationary bikes at the gym blow goats.....and I'm a little nervous to be out riding my bike on the city trails at 5:30 in the morning. So....I either need to get a trainer to ride my bike at home....or see if I can find an early morning spin class. Might have to even check at the gym Inny works for.
Works for?....something tells me there are a few grammatical errors in that last sentence....something about not ending a sentence with a preposition or something??
And maybe I could use the word "something" at least one more time?? :-)
For a gal that considered being an English major, I sure have thrown most of the stuff I know out the window. This blog is written as I think it....which isn't always (usually) the most correct.
But anyway......you folks aren't here to read the ramblings of a delusional person...are you???
I'll let you go! Have a wonderful holiday weekend!!!!
Blow something up for me, but try not to catch your house on fire, 'kay??
Or, at least take pictures if you do!!! :-)
