Things are…good?

When we last left our heroine, she was diligently cleaning the house and preparing for Mama Penguin to visit.  If you can believe it, I didn’t take a single picture of us all weekend!  Doh!

I do, on the other hand, have lots of pictures of my dress!  Which means that yes, I found it!  No, I didn’t have a super huge crying, this is the best dress in the world feeling.  But that’s just not me.  I’m super happy with it and can’t wait to don it on my wedding day.  Weekend mission accomplished!

My workouts for the weekend were slightly less than stellar though.  I did get my butt up early on Friday morning to get my swim in, but I didn’t get either of my complete workouts in on Saturday or Sunday.  In my defense, I was kind of a badass for my swim on Friday seeing as I wore the very wrong sports bra and needed to McGyver a solution in order to not end up swimming topless.  That counts for something, right?

Yes, that’s a hair tie holding my top together with my hair tucked in so I wasn’t quite so Medusa-like. #Badass

Life happens, but I certainly could have done better.  In my defense, I only get to see my mom a few times a year, so I really like taking all the time that I can with her.  I need to figure out a better way to balance or plan ahead with my coach more for training schedules.

I did do at least part of my brick on Sunday which I am proud of since it involved me finishing my run in the dark.  It was also my first brick workout (bike -> swim).  I have to really credit Fella with this one.  He was the one who got my butt out on a bike ride even though all I wanted to do was stay on the couch.  Once we finished the ride, I felt good enough to go for my run.  Life’s little victories.

I glow!

I was even on a roll with the wedding items this weekend since we finally got these in the mail after having them on my desk for a month and a half.

So as much as I was originally going to write this post as a downer since my training wasn’t great over the weekend….I can’t do that.  Training is going really well overall and I can feel myself getting stronger.  I nailed my swim workout yesterday and I am looking forward to my group ride tonight.  I’m not perfect and I’m not a professional athlete or anything close.  There are times when life will take over and training will have to take a backseat, but overall I’m kind of kicking butt.  I hope I don’t jinx myself!

Happy Tuesday!

  1. Wow! I’m super impressed you got ANY of your workouts in, let alone a BRICK in the middle of a visit from your mom! Also, super props for not letting having the wrong gear totally derail your workout!

  2. Your save the dates look cute! And yay for finding THE dress!

    That is my attitude too. Do what I can. If you feel good about it, then you’re on the right track!

  3. Love your save the date cards! And congrats on finding the dress! Sometimes life gets in the way of training. I think having your mom in town for a visit is a legitimate reason to cut a few workouts short. Good job on getting done the workouts that you did.

  4. I’m impressed with your Macgyvered suit!

    Congrats on finding a dress. I feel ya, I was the same way, just happy to find one I liked and felt good in. Maybe it’s because I’m not much of a shopper?

  5. Hey…life gets in the way! Way to go getting in what you can! Congrats on finding the dress and getting the save the dates out! Gotta love getting stuff done 🙂
