On Monday after my first exam, I headed straight for the gym to lift some weights and also ended up going on the ellipticals for about 20 minutes. Shortly after the exam review, I discovered the existence of a heated swimming pool in the middle of the state forest.
Yeah, you heard me! For all this time, I thought I could only go swimming in the river if I wanted to swim. :O!!!
So I went there with two of my friends. They’re currently training for a triathlon that I would be participating in if not for the fact that (1) my powerlifting competition is the following week, and (2) endurance is definitely not my thing (might have been cool to just try it though, now that I have a bike also…did I mention that I got a bike!?). I swam 30 laps and wanted to die (again, endurance is not my thing). They decided to go for a run afterward (…), so I decided to do the same, since it was a better alternative to twiddling my thumbs in the car for half an hour. This marks the first time I’ve gone running outside since…I’m not even sure how long ago. A year? More? It’s absolutely beautiful out there. I really might have to force myself to like running just so I can see more. *-*
After that, I went back to school to run through my hula class before it actually started. I participated in my friend’s Zumba class (I probably haven’t mentioned yet that we’re co-teaching a weekly Zumba/hula class for the community in our efforts to promote exercise + healthy lifestyles) and taught mine.
Suffice to say, I was starving by the time I got home. How I managed to only spend $20 at Kroger is completely beyond me. I was tempted by everything. Everything. ._. I went home and grilled this up because it’d be super fast. (This marinade is almost as simple as it gets.)
