Training Run/Walk and Swim – June 22, 2020

Training Elliptical Run – June 19, 2020

Today I broke down and purchased a membership at Planet Fitness for 1 month so I can train on elliptical. I forgot to bring my headphones so I could listen to a book on Audible so I passed the boring elliptical time surfing the web on my phone for items we still need for the trip. My original plan was to aqua jog following the elliptical training. Upon arriving at the pool I discovered that I had forgotten my swimsuit…

Training Ride and Aqua Jog – June 13, 2020

In fact I think I’ve run a total of 3 days; this was part of the feeling sorry for myself. The other piece of it was I am missing training with Doug. With him out of commission for a while I’m feeling sad and…
