Masters Swim

I was up very early this morning. I worked for a couple of hours before the swim workout. I did have an inkling to just keep working and do a different workout later in the day. But, I decided it would be better to get to the workout. As it turns out, the coach wasn't there today and I put together my own workout. I'm still glad that I completed the workout early in the day.

Road Ride Zone 2

I rode for about 1:40 on the Morrison / C470 / Dinosaur Ridge / Rooney / Jewell route. It is dark for too long right now for me to be able to do it in the morning. So, I had to do it this afternoon and it was a bit warm.

I've tagged this post with ritual because I feel like my exercise routine has become a ritual for me. It's no longer just about preparing for any particular event. It's about a part of my life routine.

Masters Swim

I knew that I didn't want to miss any more swim workouts and that I needed to make sure to get to the pool today. Since I had missed two weeks I decided to move back down one lane. I had a great workout today and was reminded once again how much I love getting up early and getting in my workout.

Road Ride Zone 2

I was very productive in making some great progress on my next Udemy course this morning. I had intended to ride with a cycling group today. Instead I just got back from an easy one hour ride. I think that it's a better balance that I allowed the bike ride to take a back seat. I will be very happy when I get this next course published.

Zone 1 - Zone 2 Run

I ran for about one hour today. It looks like my running is getting more attention this week.

And now for something completely different

As things turned out today, I didn't end up doing any workout. I did take Zen for a walk in the evening, though.

It feels strange for me to be letting my workouts slide so much. But, there is probably some value in changing up my routine for a while.

Road Ride Zone 2

As things went today, I ended up just riding to pick up Eli from school. I put my time and focus on other things today, and I suppose that's probably okay. My workouts took priority for a long time and it's not bad for me to get a little rest.

Zone 1 - Zone 2 Run

I decided to do another run this morning. I got out the door by about 6:28 and caught the sun rising as I headed north up Kipling. It was a really beautiful sight. I ran for about one hour in the cool morning air and thoroughly enjoyed it. I could have run for another hour.

Zone 1 - Zone 2 Run

I got up early but ended up deciding to skip the swim workout. I went for a one hour run instead. I enjoyed the workout and ran the whole time.

I am proud of myself

This morning I decided that I was going to stay focused today and finally finish my third Udemy course and submit it for review. I invested 9.6 hours to get it done, but I succeeded! I feel so good right now.
