Two Days Post Wipeout

Couldn’t swim today because the scrapes and cuts are still too fresh.  Plus, it will probably gross-out anybody else in the pool!  Mon & Wed are my usual swim days; I still got up at 4:40 a.m. and head to the gym.  Got there a smidge after 5 and wanted to get a good cardio effort in today.  Just for fun I checked the pool for my swim buddy, Doug.  Nope, he must have been pinned to his bed by the blanket monster.  Slacker! :)

No strength training today – not enough time.  Rode the bike for 1:15 doing 3×1 intervals; good HR at 145 x 160 for the sprints.  Enjoyed my Stinger Waffle and lots of water; then I had time to get in a few miles on the treadmill before heading home.  1 mile at 7.2, incline 1 then 1 mile at 8.0 incline 2.  It was a good hard push for the finish.  Home by 7 to read and get the kids off to school.

Road rash didn’t bother me too much while working out – still pretty stingy when I get in the shower though.  Ouch.  I’m hoping that in 5 to 7 days I can get back in the pool and be back to a full regiment.  Just have to wait and see…. patients, young Grasshopper.
