The best thing about taking Monday off from work is that you feel like you completely skip Tuesday. When I woke up this morning, realized it was Wednesday, and that for once it wasn’t raining, I was instantly in a better mood. I also had an email on my phone informing me that any swim order over $60 qualified for free shipping at Victoria’s Secret. I’d had my eye on one particular suit for a while, so this morning I finally ordered it.
And well, because that only totaled $40, I also ordered this fun looking cover-up.
Nothing like getting in some shopping before 10 am on a Wednesday. I’ve also now hit my quota for swim suits/cover-ups for the season. One is my limit, until I go to Jamaica in the winter that is :). Actually I’ll probably just “borrow” what my sister bought for her spring break two months ago.
Anyway, enough of that. Yesterday I did this upper body workout, and the speed cardio that the work out plan called for. 2x 400 m and 1x 200m. I threw in a mile warm-up and cool-down to make it an even 3 miles for the day. The speed work got me thinking, and I kind of want to find out just how fast I can still run 200 m. I’ve mentioned before, but I actually used to be a pretty good athlete back in high school, especially when it came to track and field. While I highly doubt that I could still run at 27 second 200 or a 60 second 400, it would be interesting to see what I can do. Anyone want to race?
Sometimes I miss track meets, and competitive events I was actually good at. When I wasn’t nervous to run, or jump (mostly jump), because I was the one to beat. Let’s be serious, long distance races are not my forte and I will never be part of a competitive field when it comes to them. But for some reason, I was really good at flinging my body up and over a bar, and launching myself into sand pit.
Granted, the 20 plus pounds I’ve put on since then might hinder my abilities now, but that’s neither here nor there. It would still be fun to try again. Oh, I also miss my blue and gold spikes, Go Pandas!
