important things  

Important things I have learned this morning:

1. It is all well and good to get up and bike to the gym. However, it is necessary to bring some kind of sustenance (ie, an apple) and eat it after swimming but before biking home again. Otherwise by the time I arrive home, I will be light-headed and nauseous from the dramatic inverse of energy expended to energy ingested. Being nauseous makes me disinclined to eat, which makes the situation worse, until eventually I am white-staticky and shaking and cannot function. Fortunately, today at least I recognized the latter half of that cycle, and ate as soon as I got home.

2. the Pilates class at the gym which is “starting soon” is in fact not starting until the fall, because everybody who’s expressed interest has also said, “Ah, but I won’t be able to make it until September so,” except me. So I’m going to have to re-apply myself to Pilates at Home, which I’ve kind of been eh about lately. Exercise is hard.

3. OW OW OW BIKE BUTT OW

:) I don't eat before swimming because I utterly loathe having flavors in my mouth before I get chlorinated. Typically I have an apple when I'm walking home so I don't fall over, but this was the first time I'd biked to the gym and I thought "Hey! A bike is faster, I won't need the snack!" This was an incorrect assumption. :)

You, um, have rather mind-blowing abs there, assuming that's you in the icon. Holy beans. :)

I could understand the chlorinated taste issue! ;)

Well, live and learn, as they say.

Yes, that's me, I wouldn't post a fake icon, lol. That's me on stage for my fitness routine, this is another stage pic. :)

Ye gods. You're amazing. I have no desire to reach that degree of studliness--I sort of top out at, say, Linda Hamilton in T2 fitness, I'd *love* to get into that kind of shape once in my life...!--but, y'know, if you ever want to come to Ireland and tell me what to eat and how to exercise for six months I'll listen to you... :)
