I go out (hopefully) on Tuesday nights and Thursday nights. I then do Saturday morning. And sometimes even a Sunday evening. If all is good and well.
I try to swim in the morning when I am not riding a bike.
Fortunately, I live 5 mins from swimming pool. routine on swim day is:
Hope the alarms go off and wake us both up
Get moving: Alex downstairs for 30 mins Yoga. Damian towards the door to swimming pool.
Things that need to happen before I leave
Make Alex a drink
Get the porridge oats soaking
pouring water on oats
pouring water in cup give cup to alex before she does 30 mins yoga
pedal to pool
do 1 – 1.6 km in pool
meanwhile alex finishes yoga wakes miriam up, gets her dressed,
eat breakfast with family
leave for work, Alex takes Miriam to school and then goes to work
pick miriam up
On bike evening it’s no swimming and hope Alex gets home before 6.45, so we can hand over and I can get out on my bike otherwise it’s leave on my own at 7.30 and do the CSG loop as quick as possible. Meanwhile Alex works or does Yoga (broken toe).
On Saturday it’s get up in the morning early, do 50ishkm OR longer BUT both require I am back before 11am as Alex needs to do her exercise and Miriam is at Ballet from 2.
I might be lucky to throw a quick loop in on sunday night as there’s no lane swimming on Sundays.
Somehow there’s life in there as well. This means cleaning, cooking, reading books, play time. Sometimes I manage to do the breakfast, sometimes Alex does. I do most of the cleaning and all of the laundry. We share cooking, though Alex has been doing most of that recently. Alex earns most of the money. I spend most of it.
