Swimming 1:00:00 [1]

Enjoyable swim, though I am looking forward to no swimming again until Monday. Hope to cycle tomorrow and go orienteering on Sunday.

New floor glow has worn off quickly - there is a hard object the size of a pencil under the vinyl. Agh!

Running/Walking (Treadmill) 1:05:00 [1] 4.7 mi (13:50 / mi)

Treadmill - the excuse being that I had to be at house while the floor guys came and finished up. Truth be told, I didn't want to face the chilly wind. Either way, I got a workout in!

Five minutes walking at 4-4.2 mph alternated with 5 minutes at 4.3, 4.5...5.5 mph. So, 35 minutes walking and 30 minutes running. Felt good throughout. Walked two+ episodes of Modfam which made the time fly by. Yay for finally taking advantage of the perks of overpriced cable.

Floor looks wonderful. Really wish it had been a better experience because I would have liked to use him for the shower reno too. Back to the drawing board.

Swimming 1:00:00 [1]

Worked 6-8 am and then home for stove delivery and for a redo on the kitchen vinyl flooring.

Stove delivered around 10 and plumber in to install about an hour later.

The original go at the new floor was laid on top of the old floor, and there were air pocket hills and glue oozing out where it shouldn't have been, and it was miscut, so there was an unauthorized piece job.

Today, when they went to pull up the bad new floor, the old floor started coming with it, so they had to pull up all of the old floor, which should probably been done in the first place. There was also a ton of wet glue underneath, which still doesn't make sense to me.

Anyway, I left them to it and went to the pool. Much quieter today with a lane to myself. Very calming. Did some faster 1-2 lap spurts during the first 40 minutes. Tiring after that so just went my usual steady pace to finish up.

Back home and floor looks better, so far, however there is a bit of mumbling going on. Crossing my fingers.

Swimming 1:00:00 [1]

A choppy swim in several ways - had to share lane right off since morning session had been canceled so pool was crowded. Then goggle issues, including getting out after 20 minutes and changing out to another unsatisfactory pair. About 20 minutes of solo, and then finished with 20 sharing. Though, I really am always grateful that I have never faced the pressure of 3+ people in a lane, so I will not whine about sharing with one other. So happy to be swimming.

Walking (Treadmill) 1:05:00 [1] 4.45 mi (14:36 / mi)

Well, when it snows on one's day off from work, then one just has to make the most of it...

Roger made chicken pot pies for lunch. Roasted a whole chicken and potatoes, and I added frozen veggies and store bought crust...

Then a photo op with the Snocraft snow shoes from my mom's estate which are going to my brother in Indiana.

Out to fill the bird feeder

The pool was closed, so after a short nap, the treadmill it was. Walked 10 minutes, jogged 5, walked 5, repeat twice more, and then 30 minutes of walking to finish. Watched back episodes of telenovela, and the time went by. Wore knee braces on both knees, so it will be interesting to see if they hurt less than usual tomorrow.

weight:182lbs (rest day)

Had lunch with Lailah, and her parents and Roger too!

After a super long nap, the opportunity to swim had passed, so another rest day. Just as well perhaps - if I was tired enough to fall asleep during the day, then I probably needed the rest.

Walking (Treadmill) 1:00:00 [1] 4.0 mi (15:00 / mi)

Nope, no way was I going out into the howling wind for a walk!

Dinner at the spanish place in Arlington. We usually have paella, but Roger wanted to try the roasted pig, so we did. Roger likes interacting with Gayna, and it was a pleasant meal. Though, I think I prefer the paella...
