I carry my water bottle with me everywhere I go. Even when I go to Timmy's for coffee with my Dad. Normally I have it filled, but yesterday I asked the lady at the counter if she would fill it for me. My Dad and I moved over to the side to wait for our two coffees and my water. The lady turned on the faucet at the little side sink and just let it run while she took another order. I stood there staring at the all this water blasting down the sink, feeling guilty because it was my fault!!
Then, when our two coffees were ready, I noticed how our coffees were in plain Tim Horton's paper cups, but she had given us two roll up the rim cups as well. What the heck is the point of this?? Why not just give us our coffees in the roll up the rim cups? Of course, then I started looking around the joint and saw that everyone had double the cups. I have no idea why this Tim Horton's does this -- it's like people can't wait to drink their coffee, they have to drink their coffee while they roll up the rim. Only in the Pass, I tell you...
So, after I did my part for the environment (LOL!!!!!!) I had a great 60 min. run with strides. I was so pleased because I didn't have droopy eyelids after the morning's swim!! YAY!! I was tired mind you, and there was a definite disconnect between what my brain told my legs to do and what my legs actually did, but all in all it was great!! LOL!
Wednesdays have become super speed day. Yesterday morning there was speed work -- lots of speed and lots of porn star panting at each end of the pool. 8 sets of 5 x 20 on 10 sec rest with 100 ez between each. I am so thrilled with my progress!!! I know I am improving as I am actually finishing IG's workouts in the time allotted for them (and with room to spare!!) YAY!!! :) :):)
I popped in the hot tub afterwards (thanks for the suggestion Jenna) and it does seem to help with the ravenous hunger afterwards. Also, (nod to Keith), along with my little plastic baggies(which I reuse btw!!LOL!) of almonds and baby carrots I usually eat on the drive home, I've now added a hard boiled egg. That fends off the hunger beast for a while. :) :)
Gotta go and decide where we are going to dine tonight -- we might drive to Fernie and go to the Lizard Creek Lodge. I haven't decided yet --Happy B-day to me!! :) :)
The Big 33!!!!! :) :) :) :)
