B-Ball and Swim

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

Tues night was a rousing night of basketball.  We had a good turn out, enough for 5 on 5 with 2 subs.  Played for nearly 2 hours.  Left exhausted.

This morning finally drug myself out of bed and to the Y for a swim before work.  Good workout of 3 x 250m free and 3 x 100m breast.  Nothing to write home about, but felt good to use the arm muscles, and be back over 1km for a swim.

Thinking about doing a triathlon this summer.  Can’t decide betweeen a local one, or one back in the ‘Port.  The one here looks a little more challenging, while the ‘Port one may be a better beginner tri.

Let’s try this thing Again

Sorry for the delay in writing.  Things have been crazy busy around the office and at the house.  3 weeks of RSV and the related ickies can do that.

Haven’t really been running all that much lately, but am looking to reincorporate a daily routine.  Also have given up diet cokes and sweets for Lent.  Hopefully will be able to continue for a long time after as well.  Hasn’t been too bad, with the exception being the first day, which just so happened to be Birthday Cake day at the office (and we generally have great cakes).  Didn’t even go to the celebration to help the resistance.

I’ll end with today’s run.  4.75 miles in 41 minutes.  Felt great, but probably the last run in the 40’s for a while.
