Weight I have lost

The week so far

So the week is going decently. I gained a little weight this week but after drinking at the zoo (Brew @ the Zoo) on Saturday and then going and getting more drunk and missing a bike ride for a bfast (or 2) at McDonald's, it wasn't to be unexpected.

So Tueday started week 3 of training. I got up and went running with Guinness. We did 2 miles in a little over 30 minutes. Yes, I'm aware this time sucks. I'm also aware that I could see the air it was so smoggy and humid and disgusting. None the less, we did it and finished.

After work, I went swimming. Yes, finally completed 2 workouts in one day. I swam 1.1Km in 40 minutes. The first 200m are always the hardest and then I start cruising. Can we say warm-up? I still find swimming to be the most boring of the 3 sports. Probably because it is the one I don't concentrate on that much. The pool was rather crowded but the lifeguards were kicking the teens out of the swim lanes (one of the regular pools is broken).

I got home. D was working so I was going to make Ginger Chicken. Except I couldn't find the ginger. So I called him crying that I had to eat a Lean Cuisine (I'm trying to clean my diet, and this frightened me). He told me to get a grip. When he finally got home at 11 or 12, he told me the ginger never made it to the register which was good as I thought I was crazy since I know D got the ginger. As to what cart he put it in...who knows.

Yesterday after work, I had a 60 minute bike scheduled. I started. I got to my usual stopping point and decided to keep going up the hill. Had to switch to 2-4 but did it fine. Kept going up to Webb Bridge Rd (end of path) and turned around. Went back towards the car. At 40 minutes I got to the car, and kept going. One hill. I got to 3/4 at 2-5, but got to the top at 2-4. Decision time, do I cross the main road. The light for me was green so I went (meaning I didn't have to put my feet down and restart). This part of the path was a lot hillier although not big hills (2-5). I got all the way to Haynes Bridge and stopped, took a drink, and turned around. At 500 ft before the light, I had to switch gears. My hand was asleep. So I got 2-3, but I couldn't get the 2 to a 1. Finally I got it, and got to the top right as the light turned red. It was ok, because I was so proud of myself for getting up the hill. You probably will look at it and think Pshaw, you think that is a hill. But yes, I do. So the light turned green and I crossed the street and back to the car. I stopped the watch. OK, last week in 58 minutes I went 7.39 miles. Yesterday in 62 minutes I went 9.71 miles. Watch me go!!! HAHA!

Oh I got some gloves, that really are helping my hands.One of the Bike Dudes helped me get these after I told him about the pains in the different part of my palms. Bike Dudes at Atlanta Cycling rock!

2nd attempt minus numerous typos: i didn't even KNOW there was a brew at the zoo event. i'll be watching for it next year. Can you fix the link to the Ginger Chicken? It goes back to the brew at the zoo and now that i've moved past the brewskis, i have a hankering for ginger chicken. :-)

Nice job on the workouts! I'm always impressed with myself when I manage to get in two workouts in a day... it hasn't been happening at all lately.
