UNUSUAL BRICK

Today's workout was a brick. The first part was easy. A 5.5 mile run on a beautiful morning. The air felt great. The peacefulness was overwhelming.

The second part of the workout is to take Hooch shopping for a homecoming dress. This will certainly require endurance. It will not be peaceful. And will take hours to achieve. I have completed this workout twice before. Nutrition is important . Today's choice is PF Chang's. It will be physically and mentally exhausting. If done correctly, there is a huge satisfaction, bonding, and most importantly- one happy daughter. If not done correctly, it will need to be attempted again tomorrow. Recovery time is extensive.

Waddling to shop........................

Good luck. Can't say I'm not glad those days are over! They buy their own clothes now!

I see you already have the tri lingo down. Good job on your 5.5 mile run. :-)

Mmmmm. PF Changs. I'm happy to hear about your swim lessons. I thought I loved the water until I started training for my first triathlon--then I hated the water--but eventually I loved it again.

I can relate. I took Daugher on a 1.5hr shoe shopping adventure, and somehow we managed not to cross the finish line. It will need to be repeated. sigh. But at least we had some time together. :)

Shopping is tougher than any workout!

I went dress shopping with my step-daughter once; that was enough.
As far as weather in Dayton... so far, The Weather Channel says Saturday will be sunny, with a high of 64 degrees, and 10% chance of precipitation.
