Swim, Bike, Run

My first triathlon happened on Shnday and I didn’t even have to pay a race fee.

On Sunday mornings, I have a one hour swim class and since we had missed the past two weeks, we spent the entire hour doing laps in the pool.

I went to a meeting and then headed to spin class. Out regular teacher and a big part of our group was away so our substitute teacher had a small group of us spinning – aka long climbs and sprints – for another hour.  My muscles cried!

Getting the bike adjusted before class
  
Warming up and still smiling. I definitely wasn’t smiling like this after class
 And then I tried to head home, tired. But my friend convinced me to go with her to visit someone who lives on the 16th floor of a n apartment building. She took the elevator and me… I ran up and then down the stairs. 

When I got home, all I could do was crash and watch a movie some Netflix while I fought a losing battle with sleep. 

But before that, there were some other amazing things that happened this weekend:

Dinner with my cousins to celebrate a 60th birthday  

  When you’re part of a big family, you realize how many birthdays there are to celebrate. It’s like there’s one every month – I think there is. It’s awesome! We sat together, ate together, laughed together and at sunset, we had worship to end the sabbath together – old ones, young ones and in-between ones singing hymns and choruses.   

I miss my family in Jamaica but family is family no matter how close your blood lines and spending Sabbath afternoon with this group was the perfect end to a rough week!

On Sunday morning, I watched the NYC 5 Boro bike tour which comes within a few blocks of where I live.     

Usually, riders stick flowers of flags in their helmets so they can identify their group in the sea of riders. Honestly, it’s the only way. 

I couldn’t help watching the groups of riders and remembering when I did the tour a couple years ago and was alone in group of 50,000 riders. The next tour I do, I plan to have a group too.  

I tried the new trending website how-old.net where you upload a picture and it tells you how old you look.  I tried a couple times. 

 

  

First I was pleased with the 29 years and then I zoomed in and tried again. 

 

Oh dear! Distance is kinder to me. 😊

Update on last week’s goals:

  1. Write everyday – I finished a short story and a couple poems.
  2. Exercise everyday – lots of walking, lots of floor exercises
  3. 4 runs – I ran 3 days but I think the walking made up for it
  4. Finish reading The Power of Habit – I did. My review here
  5. Work on a plan for my youth-group – Still in progress
  6. Another weekend hike – postponed 
  7. Donate some things – packed and ready to be delivered
  8. 1 Random act of kindness everyday – I wasn’t as intentional about this so I’ll be adding it back to this week’s goals
  9. Make time-tables to schedule the best use of my time and follow it as much as possible – hard start but it’s getting a little better 

5 goals this week:

  1. Workout every day 
  2. Write every day 
  3. Plan my days in advance and be more intentional with how I use my time and talent.
  4. Be more attentive to portion control with my meals.
  5. Read 2 books

    Don’t be afraid. Just try. I saw it on the TODAY show last week and the app said Al Roker looked like he was 84. That was hilarious.
