Hey! Just checking in to show you some pictures of the yard work I accomplished today! Still more to do, but this girl is bored now so we are moving on to something else! Lol

 

 

BearCountryGG on 07/06/2019:
Beautiful greenery....what are the pink flowers?

legcramps on 07/06/2019:
Roses :)

legcramps on 07/06/2019:
I actually used to have five rose bushes in my yard but I gave two away so now there is one in the back and two in front.


Horn_of_plenty on 07/07/2019:
You did a really nice job! it looks like a lot of cutting and pulling and time to do all that! I notice the difference a lot in all the photos. Plus, i like the style of part of your house. i like the colors and concrete look! You have so much greenery around your house!


Donkey on 07/07/2019:
Wow you worked HARD!!!! It looks really nice and manicured now :)


innerpeace on 07/08/2019:
very lush looking! I have weeds to pull and I know it is hard work. Great job.

Sunday - Rest 


Apparently I had to do another, smaller triathlon throughout the day yesterday because one in a week just isn't enough  so there's a 1.25 km swim, 3.3 km run and 16 km bike triathlon in the books 

It really was by no means planned. I was going to go to the kickboxing class, but it was only offered as a drop-in during the month of June, so I missed it by a week! That was disappointing because I was really looking forward to it. So when I got home from work, I kinda sat around for a bit, then BF texted that he was on his way to my place and I thought "well, I can get in a quick tempo run before he gets here", and off I went. Then, when he arrived I saw that he'd brought his bike with him, so we went for a short ride as well. I am truly amazed when I get anything done around the house because all I seem to do is leave it to go workout LOL.

While we were getting ready for bed last night, BF looked over at me and said "I brought my swim goggles". And that was it. This morning we were up bright and early and at the pool for more lane swimming. I never manage to get in the whole 1.5 km during these morning sessions. I slog through them pretty hard. But again, I got it done!

If i'm out and about near the football field this weekend, I should really stop and flip some tires. I haven't done that in awhile, I don't want to lose the muscle memory and have all my early practicing be for nothing when it comes time for the Femsport competition in August.

BearCountryGG on 07/05/2019:
Nice that you made it to the pool when it wasn't busy!!!


Horn_of_plenty on 07/05/2019:
lol this is why i like my home workouts...seems i like to cook and clean during them ! :) hahaha when i used to go to the gym, i literally had a LOT less time home and also got a LOT less done!

I hope you do some tire flips this weekend :)


Donkey on 07/06/2019:
How nice that these workout opportunities come your way - I really enjoyed reading this!

How long do you think muscle memory lasts? I'm wondering if it lasts a lot longer than we think it does. It seems to me that whenever I come back from a LONG hiatus, my body just seems to know to go with the flow -- like I never left.

legcramps on 07/08/2019:
I think muscle memory can last indefinitely, but the specific muscles used to flip a tire might not be used otherwise in a regular day. Therefore, if i'm not using those muscles, I will lose strength. Make sense?

When the muscle is in its 'repair' phase, that's when muscle memory occurs. So, if i'm not using the muscle in a particular movement pattern, then it's not tearing, which means there's no need for it to repair itself. No muscle memory gains.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/08/2019:
i'd like to also reconsider donkey's question with muscle memory and how long it takes to lose all the speed training you do...good question i'd say.

legcramps on 07/08/2019:
I think this is the same as with muscle strength, you have to condition your body to be able to take on higher intensities of training. You already have the muscle memory from the movement pattern itself, but now you need to train specific areas to increase agility, speed, etc. which will in turn increase muscle memory.

Hopefully this is making sense!

My swim this morning was a struggle-fest. I couldn't find my groove today, and it felt like I was swimming through tar the whole time. At least it's done, and I can leave it behind me now! Some workouts are mostly about the mental battle, and it's important to keep pushing your barriers - to progress through your fitness (unless you're in pain, obvs). Our minds often tell us we can't do something, when in reality - we can, and so much more. This morning's workout was definitely a win for me.

I had planned on doing the last part of my run today after work, but I remembered that a friend who is heavily involved in martial arts is putting on kickboxing classes on Thursday nights for a drop-in fee of $10. So I might go to that instead. She supports my coaching opportunities, and i'd love to be able to give it back and support her in her endeavors also!

I accomplished most of my yardwork goals yesterday, but there is still a lot of weeding I could be doing in the front flower beds, so I will try to tackle that on the weekend. I'm not much of a green thumb, and I don't do my yard justice at all, but I can at least make sure the two foot weeds get pulled so that the flowers can grow. I have some beautiful ferns in the front that the weeds keep threatening to overtake. If I get it done, maybe i'll take some before and after photos to show you how bad it was.

BF picks up his daughter tomorrow, so he is going to stay with me tonight and then leave from my house in the morning (it cuts an hour off of the five hours of driving time he has if he leaves from my place instead of his). Then they are going to spend the weekend at his place - his oldest son is going to stay with them as well, so it will be nice for them to visit and really be able to catch up. I might stay home and do my own thing this weekend; if I do I can work on the yard, start packing for our trip, and get things ready for the girls' weekend I am going on right after I get back from vacation. Yes, one vacation after another! But as long as I plan and prepare for it, it should be fine.

Donkey on 07/04/2019:
I did some weeding myself this morning. In the front, if I can keep up with it, then it's manageable. But on the sides of the house -- and back of the house-- well, it's kind of a different story. I had to have some help.

Sounds to me like you're in a "funk" of some sort. Not sure if it's just with training, or if it's something in life -- hard to tell, because your training is your livelihood. I get these from time to time. I usually just push through; the love comes back -- I truly believe this. Resting and mixing it up with other things in life -- that might help.


Horn_of_plenty on 07/05/2019:
Since a workout in fact is not meant to be easy, i agree with you 100% about the swim laps workout! i'm glad you pushed through and won that challenge.

i think it was just one time i tried kickboxing, now that is a serious, hardcore workout! :)

well, you have one inquiring mind over here who'd love to see the photos of your weeding! Although a chore, it's outdoors and active and good for you i'd say.

it's the first time i ever heard you mention the girls' weekend! who are you going with and where are you going / what are you doing?

legcramps on 07/05/2019:
Thank you :) i'm glad I pushed through too

I took kickboxing for three years I think before life took over. I think, up until the last couple of years, when I was kickboxing I was in the best shape of my life! It's a fantastic workout for sure.

Girls' weekend...yes, it's come with some drama so i've not talked much about it, but maybe I will one day. I have a great group of close friends, but we don't always get along LOL.

Lately i've been feeling a lot like i'm about to hit BURN OUT. I've been feeling tired as soon as I wake up in the morning. I still have energy to get through the day. Just tired and a little cluttered in the brain. Also, at work yesterday I stopped at one point and was just like "I am so bored". Busy, but bored. Honestly, I think the monotony of my work days is starting to get to me.

I googled how to avoid burn out, and google tells me to pursue my passion, take a vacation, or take a nap. If I take a nap I won't want to get up until tomorrow, so i'll wait for my vacation to start instead ;) and in the meantime, i'll pursue my passion - training!

After coaching last night BF and I went lane swimming. It felt great to be back in the pool after almost a whole week's hiatus. I swam strong and I can feel it in my arms and shoulders today.

If it's nice enough after work, I hope to get some yardwork done. The areas we re-seeded are starting to fill in with grass, but there are a few weeds that need to be pulled, and the front yard could use some love. If not today, then i'll do it this weekend.

BearCountryGG on 07/03/2019:
Time for some fun!!!! Not work, not what needs to be done...or should be done....just something that is pure fun and enjoyment....not enough of that going around these days I think!

legcramps on 07/03/2019:
So true! Thank you!


Horn_of_plenty on 07/04/2019:
BCGG is right...do things for YOU now! work, even coaching, is for others and is typical and routine. the good thing is you have some fitness goals for summer (races) and your vacation planned. make sure while on vacation that some of the things you are doing are exciting / new / different!

i get bored - VERY BORED - of routine too. having an adventure or new experience to look forward to is the best medicine.


Donkey on 07/04/2019:
I think the thing to do is to discern if the burn-out is physical or mental. And if it's mental, is it with work or life-outside-of-work? You and I seem to be traveling a similar path lately.

Thank you for the encouragement to keep doing the push-ups and sit-ups, even if I've put weight training to the side for a bit.

So yesterday I tried to complete an olympic distance triathlon for a challenge that is underway at my gym. They swapped the 1.5 km swim for the row machine, the run was on the treadmill and the bike was on a stationary bike. I got about 2 hours and 20 minutes into it and I still had a few km left on the run but my knees were screaming at me to stop! So I slowed down to a walk, but even that was starting to get painful. I stopped 2 hours and 38 minutes into it, and I have 3 km left to run; i'll do that sometime this week and then add my time together for a total. Should get it done around the 3 hour mark.

Back to BF's tonight to coach at the gym... I did message my boss to see if I could drop Tuesday coaching sessions, since it is a farther drive for me and is starting to really cut into my training time. She didn't think it would be a problem, so at some point - maybe next week - I will have Tuesday evenings free for training again! Yay! LOL. I love coaching, don't get me wrong, but it is too difficult to make it all work in the summertime when there are so many other things on the go.

I have two more weeks of work and then i'll be on holidays for two weeks! I can't wait. We are going to drive to British Columbia to see my Mom and my brother and his family who all live there.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/02/2019:
That's a long run, the 10k! 6miles! I'm sorry you were in pain to finish but i'm glad you are still keen on finishing later in the week.

Will you stay in BC for two weeks or just part of your 2-week vaca? Will bf go with you the whole time?

legcramps on 07/03/2019:
Only for part of it, we are going to drive there so it will take a few days to get there and back.

Yes, BF and his daughter will be going as well!


BearCountryGG on 07/02/2019:
Sounds like a great trip!!!!!


Donkey on 07/03/2019:
It's good that you listened to your body and stopped. I probably don't do that enough.

Vacation sounds so nice!!!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/03/2019:
i also do NOT listen to my body enough ! better to stop so that you heal faster.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/03/2019:

Just editing my last post because I’m using my iPad and it won’t let me post a new entry! The pool was closed Thursday and Friday because of graduation, so on Thursday I went on a run instead, and Friday I took a rest day. We were out at the grad party until 5am on Friday morning anyways, so I wasn’t in the mood for exercise that day LOL!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/26/2019:
yeah to Canada Day! It's hard to believe that June is ending and July is just coming around the corner ever so quickly!

I also do NOT enjoy eating so early as, like you, i get hungry later. however, you can take a snack with you - ?

OMG - there is still a party going on at 2:30am yuck! now i remember my prom...yup, we were out all night till the next day, everyone got sunburned the next morning.

enjoy your active weekend, cheers to resting up so you have the energy to do more efficient work in the pool tomorrow. same here - as an "athlete," i am learning to do less, so i have more energy for the next activity.


Donkey on 06/27/2019:
Canada Day!!! I'll be celebrating in spirit. Love Canada!

That late night party, though... Oof! Sounds painful!

A friend was going for a run yesterday after work, so I jumped in with her for 3.3 km; I managed to hit a new PB (personal best) because she motivated me to move a bit faster than I normally do! I don't usually run with people, but I might have to reconsider that approach LOL. After having a frozen yogurt treat with friends, I went over to my godson's and we played baseball in the park across the street from their house until 8pm. I had some chicken and rice when I got home, then relaxed for about an hour before heading to bed.

I was in the pool again this morning for 1300 meters. I feel super bloated today from the frozen yogurt, and very gassy LOL. I will not be a joy to be around today.

It is so sad for me to say this, but I felt relief this morning when I got to work and a co-worker told me my boss wouldn't be in today :(  we have just not been seeing eye-to-eye lately (well, if i'm honest, it's been this way for awhile now). I know she is busy and stressed, but that doesn't mean her workload should roll over onto me, or that I should pick up her slack when i'm already overworked in certain areas trying to cover for other people. She gets paid big bucks to do what she does...and I did not apply for a management position so i'm not sure why i'm being held accountable for management's responsibilities!

Anyways, I need to let it go. I'm still working on practicing my "no's".

Coaching tonight after work! Then hopefully an early bedtime.

happy-1 on 06/25/2019:
LOL... Field promotion, no hazard pay.

legcramps on 06/25/2019:
Pretty much, and i'm over it.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/25/2019:
Congrats on a new PB in running! I also prefer to exercise ALONE. i DO motivate myself usually quite well and don't need my limits pushed any further lol. good job to you. sometimes a friend is more motivational actually..

isn't it nice that it remains light out later (i hear now it will begin, slowly, getting dark sooner :( how sad!) ...i'm relying on these late nights to get more physical fitness in during the longer days, making it so much easier to do so.

what if there was a pay raise involved?

legcramps on 06/25/2019:
I wouldn't be interested... healthcare is a very stressful environment these days, and to be honest with you I just want to do my job and then go home and not take it with me. That doesn't seem to be happening for me lately...always going home either frustrated or worrying over the next day's tasks.


BearCountryGG on 06/25/2019:
I also worked in the healthcare field...as a medical secretary....Love the job...and that was back in the early 2000's......even then there were stresses.....( hippa laws were beginning.....)....Like you...I also liked the leave work at work aspect.....but there lwsys seems to be office politics wherever you go.....

On Saturday I coached at the gym from 8am to 1pm. I had a couple of group sessions and then one team training session with the Special Olympics athletes from our area, which was a lot of fun to coach. After work we roto-tilled parts of my lawn and re-seeded it all (because we killed it last year when we tried to fertilize it), I cut the remaining grass, trimmed the bushes, and did laundry and dishes and cooked supper (steak fajitas).

On Sunday we enjoyed a lazy morning with waffles and eggs for breakfast, and I cooked a bunch of food for the week - chicken breast, spaghetti squash, black bean brownies, and energy bites. Then we went to the lake for the afternoon and did some open water swimming and kayaking. BF would swim and I would kayak beside him, then we would switch. We were out for about an hour, maybe a bit more. My goggles bugged me for the majority of my swim, but just as I was returning to shore they decided to stop leaking grr. We even put on our wetsuits (it was only 16 degrees celsius yesterday!) and got to practice swimming in them. We ended up with fajita leftovers, so we had that for supper and watched Baywatch (BF said open water swimming made him think of the movie LOL).

This morning I was going to sleep in, but BF left early to get in a workout of his own, so I changed my mind and got my swimsuit on. I did another 1.25 km in the pool, and my goggles worked perfectly fine WHAT THE HECK?! I definitely appreciated the warmer temperature of the pool.

This week, i'll be practicing saying 'no' to some work-related tasks. I am off on Thursday and Friday and I have meetings all day tomorrow. My Manager wants me to lead a Team Review on Wednesday afternoon, but that will mean I won't get my work done for the week. So. It has to be NO!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/24/2019:
GREAT average sleep, LEGS!

NICE JOB on getting a lot done on Saturday both at work and around the house. You sound like a superstar! Very motivating to me!

I love hearing about the foods you cooked Sunday, the ALL sound delish! I just found a cool recipe for Keto cookie dough balls. i will be making them, maybe tonight bc i think i every every ingredient! they use protein powder as one of the main ingredients.

You motivate me - one day i'm going to try swimming again, when it's convenient as it's not convenient right now for me to do any workouts that aren't within my own apt area. If i can't walk to it, i'm not doing it!

But, back to yu - swimming is amazing. it's strength workout too bc of the water preventing you from moving as fast as you would outside the pool. it's really the best cardio there is as well.

You DO have to put yourself first sometimes. everyone has limits. of course, IN MODERATION definitely when it involves work, but, you have to find your limits and stick to them sometimes.


BearCountryGG on 06/24/2019:
Goggles are funny that way......i think they need to be wet and have to work kind of like a suction cup....we went through a lot of them when we had a pool....and then ended up using all of them at times when we figured out we had to put them in the water first...then put them on...


Donkey on 06/25/2019:
So the goggles work after all! Good! That has happened to me - sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. Don't know why.

Your yardwork feats sound amazing... isn't it a good feeling to get it done? Like a clean house, a well kept yard is a joy to witness.

So Mother Nature decided she wasn't going to assist me in getting my chores done. It rained pretty much all afternoon and into the early evening. I didn't get any yardwork done, but I did a few things inside at least - and then took a nap LOL.

I feel good today; I slept like a log. When I went swimming this morning, I decided to try out a different pair of goggles. Oh, the struggle with goggles. My clear pair doesn't work outside very well, my shaded pair leaves literal track marks on my face for hours afterwards, and the pair I wore today - might I add the most expensive of the trio - leaked the whole time! Ugh, it was so frustrating! I left them sitting in the sink in hot water and soap for the morning. I'm hoping they just need a good cleaning. Anyways, I finished 600 meters in the lane pool before getting upset enough to leave. Thankfully, I know I still got something in so i'm not letting it get to me.

Lots of coaching in the plan for today and tomorrow, and hopefully some working out and some yardwork as well. 

So happy it's Friday and my workweek is almost over :)

Donkey on 06/22/2019:
I guess that yardwork wasn't meant to be - LOL! Hopefully you'll get it done over the weekend... I've had that happen to me where the weather just wouldn't work... so the work couldn't get done. Eventually it did but in the meantime - wow!

That stinks about the goggles. Very frustrating when equipment doesn't work.


Horn_of_plenty on 06/23/2019:
Is the leaky pair of goggles new? can you return them bc of a "defect" ? Many times i find companies will offer discounts to unsatisfied customers...

I hope the weather holds so you can get your yardwork completed! :) i've been also enjoying the outdoors, yesterday with my ladder workout and a nice walk at the park :) I'm in love with this nice, warm but still not too hot weather! it's been wonderful!

I got in 1.25 kilometers of swimming this morning; it's about all I can manage in order to be back at home with enough time to get ready for work. Wish I could get in more, but I guess I should just be happy i've been able to wake up early enough to begin with!

My report out is today and i'm a little nervous because my Manager will be there. I just want it to be over LOL but I will face my fears today and try to speak with purpose. I'm sure that before I know it, it will be done. What a relief that will be!

After that, I will have the whole evening free. However, I need to cut the grass, take out the garbage, do the dishes, plan the meals for the weekend, vacuum and do a load of laundry.

Does anyone want to take bets on me actually getting all of that done? LOL

Nice job on waking up to swim in the morning. Between you and Donkey, i'm motivated to possibly make a change in my routine, though, def not yet! LOL. but you both show me that exercise is doable in the morning. i have tried it, once, 3 months going to gym before work but i didn't like it. I must say though, it's nice to get some calories burned first thing in the morning. then again, my commute involves movement, so, i'm good!

What was your report about? It will of course be a good experience for you!

The one nice thing about living in a house is that doing laundry is a lot simpler :) not that mine is hard, it's not!, but you don't have to worry about leaving clothes sitting in the dryer too long and then someone taking them out lol.

a lot of your tasks at home don't sound too difficult, except for cutting the grass and vacuuming...i think you'll get it all done :)

what's on the menu for the weekend?

It's hard to get into the morning workout routine, but once i've done it for a few weeks, it definitely gets easier.

My reports (I had two) were about making improvements in the workplace and 'leaning up' our processes. So I had to take on a project, try to improve it, and then reported on the outcome. In total, it was 20 minutes of talking, which i'm not used to. But I did it!

That's an ambitious chore list!
