How is it Thursday Again Already???

Do you ever have one of those days where you feel invincible, like you could just go forever?  Me, neither, but I totally had one today.  There’s no real reason for me to be feeling so lively today.  Heaven knows I didn’t fuel for a spectacular workout with last night’s dinner of half of a week-old Subway sandwich and a bowl of Honeycomb cereal.  But I woke up rarin’ to go, so go I went.

My Easy 2 run started off easy enough, but I had a new playlist that got me super pumped and before I knew it my feet were flying.  It’s impossible to run slow when Sean Paul is doing his thang in my ears.  Perfect, cool and sunny weather and a huge negative split started my morning just the way I like it, so why stop there?

When I got home I did the Mom thing for a few minutes (“Did you eat breakfast?  Have you brushed your teeth?  Where’s your homework?”) and then hopped in the pool.  We’re having a little heat wave this week – today is in the 90s – so my pool has warmed up to almost 70 degrees.  Perfect, perfect swimming temperature in my opinion and time to break out Three Quarter Man, my sleeveless wetsuit.  What?  You don’t name your wetsuits?

wetsuitI’m all about the 2nd Amendment – the right to exercise with bare arms!

I don’t know if it was my excitement about wearing Three Quarter Man or my new Swimsense lap tracker (full review coming soon, but I’ll tell you right now that this thing ROCKS for a nerd-tastic number cruncher like me!), but today was my fastest and bestest swim ever.  I didn’t want to get out of the pool.  I did, of course, because I had to go to work, but whatever.

Do you name your gear?  (I do, obviously)  Do you think of your stuff as having a personality or feelings?  (again, guilty as charged)

Running Ricig said...

whoa, check out those guns! I name pretty much everything, but, weirdly, I haven't named any of my running gear...must get on that!

ajh said...

Love your second amendment! Too funny! I do not name my exercise equipment but I think I am in the minority.

Whitney said...

Nice guns! I haven't really named my gear but I do refer to my bike as Koi Bear since she has a koi fish on her. I don't know where the bear part came from but that's what has stuck.

Matthew Smith said...

Man, you need a license to carry guns like those! Nice work on the training. You motivate me to keep truckin'. Keep up the good work.

I was going to tell you how cute you are, but I'm not sure "cute" covers those rockin' arms!! I name everything... and sometimes I do worry I'll hurt my shoes feelings if I don't rotate them equally. Glad I'm not the only crazy one. :)

Ah, I have missed you and your freakishly buff arms! I try to name my stuff, but have still been working on a name for my bike for a year!

Aimee said...

Ha ha..I love how you named your wetsuit! I've always thought about naming my stuff, but I'm not creative enough and can never think of cool names!
Nice job with the run and swim! Woohoo!

Sexy arms, girl!

Average A said...

OMG this whole post is hilarious from start to finish. You are amazing. :)

Lancer!! said...

I think I see a little crazy in that smile... Rock on. B-) I think I named my bike Isabella, but I never wrote it down, so I don't remember. Guess I'll have to make a note to myself now.
