So Decision making time for me the last couple of days/weeks, whatever:
*I decided to go sign up for another OWS in the Hudson River. The Riverside Park Tune Up Swim, which takes place the weekend before the NYC Triathlon. Perfect! You could also do it as a Aquathon or whatever they call that combo to run aftward, but I can't see paying an additional $55 just to tack on a 5K. I am more interested in the OWS practice anyway.
*Yesterday I decided to try Jon's formula to check my sweat rate. I was a bit reluctant because it meant getting on the (damn) scale and I haven't done that since April at my last doctor's appointment. I got naked, braced myself and got on the scale. Imagine my surprise when I saw that I was down 6 pounds!! Holy crap! That makes it official; I'm at what I consider my 'fighting weight' and I have officially lost ALL of my baby weight. It only took forever. The sweat rate results? I lost a total of 42 oz. after a 6 mile run or 7 oz. of sweat per mile.
* I decided to sign up for another Half Iron race. I have signed up for the Bassman Fall Half in south Jersey on October 3rd. The reason I decided to do this race is because the course is flat. After the hills from hell at Mooseman I want to see how I would do on a flat course....I figure I've earned it. Also it is a local race and I am curious about that too. How is a non Ironman branded race run. I'm sure it won't be as extravagant, but I hear these guys put on a pretty good race.
*I decided I needed a new pair of Brooks Launch...even though they have come out with a new color, I still love the 'mantis' (read: electric) green and purple color. Of course I need to have new red shoes laces too like the old pair! Love this shoe!!
*I decided I need to wrap things up to I can go pick up my new Team In Training Sugoi uniform and meet a friend for lunch. Killing two birds.
* I also decided I need to wish my sister and her hubby good luck at they head to Borneo to climb Mt. Kinabalu!! Go guys!!
*I decided I better ice my knees with a beer or two...thanks Mandy!
