Thursdays seem to be a recovery day for me...I only have one workout, a run scheduled which gives me a well deserved day out of the pool. I however choose to book a 6am Physical Therapy every Thursday which really is annoying as I would love this day to sleep in til at least 7.30. If there is one thing I need to really work on it's getting more zzz's. It just seems like every night I am trying to catch up with things. I don't know what happens...because I don't watch TV yet before I know it is always 11pm. I think part of my problem is my chocolate addiction. Ever since I did a training trip in Tuscon early this year Marky V introduced me to Trader Joe's and their dark chocolate. I have now got into a habit of a little chocolate in the afternoon to get me out the door for my second workout. As I don't really drink coffee this caffeine buzz is keeping me UP. So I need to think about quitting that too.
This morning my Physical Therapist suggested that I may be growing a fin in my back. Paulo has been upping my swimming each week and we have been doing alot of paddle sets. I love it but the outcome of this is a very sore back and neck this week. He is suggesting I do alot of stretching or perhaps yoga. I really need to make the time over the winter for a good stretching program.
My goal for today is too come up with a good race schedule. As I won't be racing for a while Paulo said I could find some running races this winter to keep me motivated. I am trying to book a trip down to Florida for the Christmas break. It is only December and I am already feeling the urge to get to some sun. I am thinking Sarasota for a week and then we have a party to go to in Tampa.
I am hoping to go either back to Claremont or out to Tuscon for a week to train in February and then we have a training camp scheduled for March in Las Cruces. I am very excited about this as the training is very good there and I was kind of sad when Paulo moved as I thought I may not get back there. So lot's to plan!
So for now I need to get back to booking some trips and organizing my kids school schedule. As class mom for both kids things get a little hectic this time of year.
Of course I am yet to start Christmas shopping or put up our tree yet...so that will happen in the next few days. This weekend we shall head into the city for some NY Christmas spirit! This is a tradition for us to spend a night in the city with the kids and see the tree and go see the Christmas show...so lots of fun planned ahead!
