I'm now losing 2-1 in the challenge with my wife. I took last Wendesday off from swimming in exchange for a much-needed 2.5 hours extra sleep. Pretty good deal.
I seem to have dropped all of the strength/flexibility work I was doing (read: Wii Fit). I keep meaning to spend an hour on it Tuesday mornings, but after Friday Swim, Saturday bike, Sunday Bike, Monday swim, Tuesdays I seem to wind up sleeping in, and resting my sore legs.
Probably ok for January, but I need to improve my core strength fairly soon.
Actually, the rides are really kicking my butt. It only takes 15 minutes or so for me to have completely warmed up the basement, be dripping sweat, and unhappy. iTunes podcasts are helping, but the huge loss of aerobic fitness I'm feeling right now makes me sad.
I am not, however, so sad that I will be discouraged.
I just wish I could run a bit more regularly. It's been bitterly cold of late.
My swim technique is slowly starting to come around. That hiatus was way too long, but really, when life comes calling, what can you do? We did some dps (distance per stroke) and breathing drills this morning, and there's no question that they helped.
The best thing about living in a new house is that I have new areas to explore. Oh, if only it were spring, and the bike could move outside!
