Monday: 6 miles + Spinning
Tuesday: 5 miles
Thursday: 6 miles + 10 minutes of rowing + 35 minutes on the reclining bike + abs (when I arrive at the gym 20 minutes before spinning class and find all the bikes taken, I end up doing random stuff like this)
Friday: 4 miles
Saturday: 12 miles
Sunday: 1000 yards swimming (I felt strong and could have kept going, but the girl who shared my lane was in a chatty mood...and I didn't mind. After the 12-miler yesterday, I felt my week was complete!)
Total mileage this week: 33
The weather people predicted a sunny Saturday with temps in the mid 70's and a slight chance of rain. How was I supposed to know that meant rain with a slight chance of sun??? DH and I drove an hour to Pemberton for a day of canoeing on Rancocas Creek, a tributary of the Delaware River. Instead, we sat in the car for a while, waiting for the skies to clear, then drove back, defeated. I was all for charging on, rain and all, but DH pointed out that spending 5 hours in a canoe, soaking wet, was not exactly what people did for fun on Saturdays. What does he know?
On the drive back, the rain gods relented a bit, so we went fishing in the Delaware. Well, DH fished and I took pics and read a book. I don't know about you, but in my book, waiting hours for the elusive fish that I could easily buy in the supermarket = heights of boredom.
Not exactly the best spot to fish, but we were just trying to get the best out of the few minutes between downpours (see those grey clouds threatening to erupt?)This fella tried to edge past us on this narrow ledge...
...he danced about for several minutes, thoroughly entertaining us (we thought he was after the live bait)...
...then gave up and decided to take an alternate route.
