I figured this title would catch some attention! I am referring to my padded bike shorts, of course! Each Saturday morning our TNT Tri group has a team practice. This morning we met at Lake Hefner at 9:30am. Getting up for a 9:30am workout is a training in itself for me. I made the mistake of heading out the door without eating breakfast. I figured the cheese fries I devoured the night before would carry over. Not so much and it made it a bit more challenging to get around the Lake. That and the Oklahoma WIND! We all did 2 laps which is about 20 miles. Then a new TNT friend, Jenna and I went for a short run. I guess the practice of going from cycling to running is called "bricks." Now I know why! It feels like you are not moving at all when you try to run! I guess we were running at a decent pace for our first mile...but I know at this time there would be no way to run a half marathon after what I cycled...let alone 2.5 times that! I guess it's something I will be working on!
Afterwards, I headed to volunteer at the second annual Rescue Day & Dog Wash to raise money for local animal shelters. How did I help? The DUNK TANK, of course. Man, I did not know what I was getting myself into!
Oklahoma Cocker Rescue. But I know the kind of commitment dogs require, so I am waiting for the right time to adopt a new friend. Once I cleaned up I headed to work where I covered 2 tornado warnings! Whew! It's been a long day! Time to watch my DVRed SNL with Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake!
