When my husband walks into the kitchen and sees a stick of butter sitting on the counter he knows I’m making him chocolate chip cookies. He jokes (or maybe I only think he’s joking) that one of the reasons he married me is I make cookies on demand. Tonight I ate half the dough before putting the cookies into the oven and it was super delicious! Generally after a good workout and a healthy meal I don’t crave sweets as much but tonight seemed to be an exception.
This evening I signed Baby A into child-watch at 5pm and ran a mile before spin class. It’s supposed to be a 45 minute class but we only did 35 minutes of actual (very hard) work so I was free to run another half mile before my hour of childcare was up. I pushed myself in the bike class so I would reach 12 miles and took it easy on the runs. I came out sweaty and exhausted, wondering why in the world anyone would choose to do a duathlon (run-bike-run) instead of a triathlon. My pool opens again tomorrow!
the workout: 1 mile run, adjusting speed and incline frequently/ 36 minutes spinning, 12 miles, pushing up to 25mph occasionally in sprints/ .5 mile run, 9:30 min mi
