"Fitting" it all in

Last night, DH made the comment that he felt we just could not keep up with the laundry. My response was that it was not a big deal. We have a newborn we are trying to take care, we are getting our workouts in, cooking at home, and staying in touch with our friends and family. I am not too worried if the laundry piles up or the house is a mess sometimes. Something's gotta give!

This is how we are fitting in our workouts:

We are both up at 6AM with the baby. I eat a quick breakfast, pump a bottle of milk, and get ready for my bike ride. I am out the door at 7AM for a 1 hour ride, followed by a 15 minute run. I have a triathlon on Friday, and thought I should do a brick workout. : )

I was home and showered ready to take Wesley at 8:45. DH then poked around on his bike (I have no idea what he was doing), ate breakfast, and went for a ride at 10AM. He was home at 12. Right in time for lunch. So by noon, we were both happy, fit people.

We are going to try to go to a lake after work so DH can swim while I watch Wesley, and then I can go run 45 minutes while DH watches him. We are learning the important lesson of "taking turns". I also plan to jump in the lake after my swim to cool off, and get used to open water swim. Have I mentioned I have this triathlon on Friday?

It is too early to start worrying about this race but already I am thinking about what I will wear, if the water will be cold, what if Wesley wants to eat 5 minutes before the start....we will talk about all this later in the week.

Hope you have a good week!
