Boyfriend and I did another Couples Yoga challenge tonight! It's actually really fun to push ourselves outside of our comfort zones to try these poses out!
I never realized how much I actually trusted him until tonight, when I let him hold me up in a handstand!
I was also super surprised I was able to balance so well in that position. I assumed it would be harder to hold and I would topple over!
Lucky for me, all those (long ago) years of gymnastics and tumbling classes paid off and I still posses some of my long lost balance ;)
Today's weightlifting workout is in a similar format, but not the same as the one I did earlier this week.
From now on I will be having 2 weightlifting days a week and 2-3 long runs/bikes/swims!
Yesterday was my rest day but I thought I might swim a few laps in my boyfriends pool just to see where I was fitness wise....
Swimming is HARD!
I'm actually a great swimmer - Besides Gymnastics, I did swim team and took Olympic strokes training classes until I was 15 years old!
But the ENDURANCE it takes to swim long distance... I do NOT have that right now!!
In my memories of being on swim team, the coach would make you swim thousands of meters a practice and you were totally fine!
I CAN'T EVEN SWIM 4OO METERS WITHOUT STOPPING A TON OF TIMES AND DYING...
That being said, previously my main concern about a triathlon was the run - but now I KNOW the hardest part to train for will be the swim!
This will especially be a challenge for me, because the gym my family goes to does not have a lap pool!
I'm still trying to workout the details of how I can get VERY cheap access to a lap pool!
Until then.. I will swim many many laps in my boyfriends family's recreational pool!
Hope everyone had a great day today!
p.s. have you seen these yummies in the grocery store???
They are in the freezer section and are SO good!!!
They are my latest obsession - and totally more convenient than the mess of making them yourself!
