Top Weekend

Monday. A new start.

Today is my first day of school. I have new teacher orientation today and tomorrow and I am so excited! I can’t wait to settle into my new job and get back to teaching, where my heart really belongs.

I also have PT today. I’m hoping to get to the green light to start doing a walk-run soon. I am so itching to get back out on my feet. It’s killing me.

My weekend was fun too. Hubby and I took off to NJ Friday afternoon. We did get held up by an accident about 30 minutes from my grandparent’s house which made us over an hour and half late. But we had a nice time hanging out with them and my grandmother made sure we were well fed. Saturday morning we drove to the Bronx for the game. We got to be there for the Joe Torre number retirement which was awesome! They gave him his Monument Park monument too. It was really cool to get to see all that. Then we enjoyed the game, the park, the weather, everything. Yankees win and we had a wonderful time! And as usual we got back late Saturday night.


Sunday was spent working in the basement and cleaning up my house some. We ended up having to pull out the copper line to the fridge and replacing it with a poly line.  We also got the floor fixed where we pulled it all up and started working on the ceiling, which is a huge pain in the butt. I am happy to report though that I now get my fresh, cold, filtered, lovely water out of the front of the fridge and unlimited ice in the freezer.

glugglugglug I love water!

I also got two new tri tops. Too bad I’m not allowed to race my last tri so I don’t get to wear either.

FLTC top I wanted to wear for Finger Lakes Tri in two weeks, sigh. And my super awesome Rat Snake top.

I worked out once last week. On Wednesday I finally bucked up and hit the gym for 30 minutes on the spin bike and some upper body lifting. My calf was a bit achey afterwards and my lifting has gone undone for months, so I stayed sore in my upper body for a few days following.

I’m fingers crossed that I’ll get in four workouts this week Monday through Thursday. Then we’re off to Syracuse for Andy and Emily’s wedding, so those will be my only opportunities to squeeze in some training.

Favorite thing you did this weekend?

What’s your favorite piece of clothing to race in?

  1. My favorite thing from this weekend was watching a friend/training partner cross the finish line (via live stream) of his first Ironman! He raced in Louisville and it sounds as if those athletes really had to fight the heat yesterday! I was especially excited for him since my first experience was so recent.

  2. Favorite thing I did this weekend: spent a few hours at the pool with my mom and neice. It was nice to go to the pool and not have a workout in mind. I spent the hours diving, playing with some neighborhood kids (we had a cannonball contest), and just being lazy.

    Favorite thing to race in: nothing in particular. I like longer shorts (compression usually) with a drifit shirt.
