Thanks for the Love!!

Wow!! Thanks guys, for all the blogger love on my b-day!! :) :) :) :) :)

After I blogged, I went on the Lizard Creek Lodge website and discovered it will be closed until May 2. So, Mike took me out locally last night to a new pad called the Tin Roof. It's a definite anomaly here in the Pass -- nice restaurant, Banff prices. We had a great time!! :)

Also, because it was my birthday, I felt a proper indulgence was necessary. WARNING!! The following may gross you out so be prepared... I opened up a Swiss chocolate cake mix and made sure to leave a heaping pile of the batter in the bowl. I then plunked down on the couch with my bowl and spatula and watched a movie. Mike was so grossed out -- "That's not healthy," he said. "There are raw eggs in there." Mmmmmmmmmmmm I know and it tasted great!! Until I got to the bottom of the bowl that is. Errrrppp. Let's just say I jet-propelled my way through my bike workout yesterday. And, I had to promise Mike that I "would NEVER, EVER, EVER" eat that much raw cake batter again!! LOL!!!!!!

My legs were a wee bit fresher than last week's Thursday bike workout, but I still had a hard time on the last set. I was so happy to finish it! This morning I had an epic workout of 20 x 100 all on 15 sec rest. OMG -- I thought I was going to die. I was really panting for air and every time I would stop, somebody would try and talk with me!! LOL! I only had 15 sec to recover and I thought, Oh Man, please don't talk to me!! LOL!! Right after swimming, I went for my run with tempo workout and had to bail on my usual core work. Busy, busy, busy today!! I'll try to get a bit of core in after work tonight.

Have a great weekend everyone!! :) :) :)

I forgot to say a couple of things -- Kelly: I wore lip gloss last night!!

Cath -- I miss you guys and your swimming instruction. You are by far, the BEST swimming instructor out there. The way you explain in one sentence how to do something, just blows my mind. :) :) :)

Susi is right. We must be related.

John Prince said...

Kelly B. said...

Good job on the lip gloss! And I totally eat the batter all the fact we are making cupcakes today and I am really looking forward to it!!

Cath said...

No worries you! You have found yourself an amazing swim buddy - I'm looking forward to you giving me a few tips when we get out there!

I've been baking bread today - not really something you lick the bowl out of, but hey, nothing beats a fresh loaf!

This week is quite monumental for me - it's the first ever I've managed to finish a full week's training as planned - I thought I'd never be able to say that!

Have fun x
