CompuTrainer Class: Maximizing Aerobic Capacity IV

It is national bagel day or something. Maybe the birthday celebration of Bruegger's Bagels restaurant. Regardless of the actual occasion, it was an occasion that led to free bagels—3 of them! By the time I took this picture, I had already eaten the honey wheat one; I also got the cinnamon sugar one and the multigrain one. Even this is more flour/bread than I've eaten in the last month, I will enjoy them all soon!

Though I did not feel particularly motivated to and excited about swimming, I did anyways. I made it to the DHY 5 minutes earlier than normal and did not have to contend for or share a lane, so I was happy about that. However, I can really get in only the meat of the workout (none of the warm up/drills/cool down parts), so sometimes it doesn't feel worth it. I try to do what I can with the time allotted, though, and today it was 1,300 yds.

Then it was off to Endeavor Performance for a good hard ride.

^^This is what the ride looked like, and this is what it felt like vv.

This was super hard, way harder than Tuesday. I have no idea why, but I hit 1:13 into Todd's workout and hit a wall. But I determined that I'd ride until my legs just wouldn't go any more, and I never got to that point. Thankfully. But the last 15 or so minutes of the final effort were quite a challenge.

Awesome message from Dr. Easley tonight at Inversion. I walked away knowing more than I'd known going in and remembering how possible it is to sin but how gracious God is.
These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the culmination of the ages has come. So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall! No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

1 Corinthians 10:11–13
