My tip for the day is - don't drink sea water! I will tell you another thing - this morning I probably received my lifetime supply of sodium!
This morning's training session was different than before. For one I willingly went to a training session when the weather wasn't particularly nice. It looked rather miserable and a sleep in seemed rather tempting, but I got myself up and ready and off I went. So for that in itself I think I deserve a medal :-). To actually go out exercising when it is raining - that's not something I have willingly done before (okay once before and I hated it). But in hindsight it actually wasn't too bad. I think I preferred this drizzly cloudy day to a hot sunny day and it wasn't particularly cold and bonus - the sea was really calm!
The other new thing for me was to actually go into the sea to swim. Now normally I go just a tiny bit deeper than ankle deep and then I will tell the kids that that is deep enough. I don't like cold water for one and for another really don't feel all that confident in the sea. But there I was in a sea swimming training session. The water was cold! And I think once I must have stepped on a crab and it nipped me on my foot (wasn't really painful thankfully because I lifted my foot up as soon as I felt movement).
I really didn't enjoy swimming in the sea to be honest, but thankfully we don't go too deep and I am still able to stand when I need to. And boy did I swallow sea water! It was disgusting!
Then after that it was quickly getting ready for our bike ride. I decided to just go in what I was wearing otherwise it wastes too much time getting ready for the bike ride. We did a 12km ride again and initially it was a bit tougher than last week because it is quite tiring swimming in the sea and then having to run out. I have to say between the swimming, running and biking I enjoy the biking probably the most. I didn't time myself today, but it was a rather enjoyable ride!
Tonight the girls and I will be baking and wrapping presents - tomorrow is Terence's birthday!
What did you get up to today? What are your plans for the rest of the weekend?
