I did something today that I haven’t done in forever…..I did a transition run…or run off the bike. It was good and reminded me of the good ol’ Ironman days.
I used my new stationary bike for the first time and it was great. I signed up for the Peloton App and did a spin workout. I have been missing spin classes so much and this is a good substitute. I then jumped on the treadmill for a quick run to get in my run streak for the day. Then a quick 10 minute core workout from Peloton. This workout made me wonder if I would ever do triathlon again. My unused wetsuit was mocking me from the corner.
We had a very low-key day. We worked on getting the lights up on our tree.
The kids love helping with everything. We did the lunch, cuddle, nap hustle then went out to go play at one of our favorite playgrounds that we haven’t been to in a very long time. We drove up to the playground just to find it closed. I think it’s due to Covid and the kids were so disappointed. I felt so bad that we got them pumped about doing something then had to let them down. At two and four they don’t totally get the pandemic and why things are so weird right now. With Covid spiking here in Colorado we aren’t doing any indoor activities even with family so they are missing their grandparents and friends a lot. They asked to watch a movie at their grandparents house yesterday and it broke my heart a bit. When you are only two years old spending a year or more social distancing is a lot of your life.
On our way home we drove through our local mall’s parking lot and noticed they had their horse drawn carriages running. The kids were super excited to ride so the night was saved,
They even enjoyed running around the Macy’s courtyard while we waited for our turn.
The ride was fun and the kids loved saying hi to the Clydesdale. The Christmas lights were beautiful and it was nice to do something to celebrate the holiday season.
Anyone doing any transition runs?
Peloton users out there, any tips? I am loving it so far, I can’t wait to try the yoga and strength training sessions too.
