Sunday: Planned long run in the pool run or bike ride on the trainer. Well, I had to chose the bike ride on the trainer, although I wanted to hit the pool again. Our schedule just didn't mesh well for hitting the pool, as we had promised Andrew that we would go see Zootopia today. When we found it had an early showing at 11 am, we figured it was perfect for the kiddos to go early, so that maybe, just maybe, they might nap later and the crowds might be thinner. Well, the nap thing never happened but the crowds were pretty low and very forgiving of my three year old occasionally talking or shaking his candy box
The movie ended up being very cute although a little on the long side for three year olds but enjoyable none the less.
Got my bike on the trainer and started trying to figure out what was going to get me through an hour of peddling, while staring at the wall. I tried podcasts first, and that just wasn't doing it, even with my beloved Serial playing. Honestly, I am not getting into this season like I was last year, so that may be a bust anyway. I then tried a cycling class, and while I was really enjoying it and sweat was POURING off of me, my foot started protesting as I dialed up the resistance. I finally just had to find a gear that didn't irritate my foot and steadily pedal. It wasn't the most fun but I continued to watch season 2 of the leftovers and I made it through. I did feel like I got a good work out without intensity. I will admit, I was a little sore today from all the walking around yesterday, plus me working in the basement all afternoon after we got back. Lesson learned, don't over do it.
I am going to try and not go crazy waiting this week. I just want to get in and see what we are up against, good, bad or otherwise. I think if I have a plan on how we can move forward, I will be so much more happy. If you are pounding the pavement, pound some for me!!!! Have a great week!
