I survived getting back in the pool, my first swim in a month and it almost didn't suck! (That is great for me). I even figured something out and improved my stroke, I am starting to feel like I could get to the point of tolerating this swimming thing. I can run for hours but can barely swim one lap without getting tired and out of breath, but I think I fixed the issue...I kick too much, use too much power and energy and still don't go faster so I relaxed and bam! I felt so much better. Any other advice?
Now if I had one of these and the associated scenery and weather I might like swimming even more!
I survived sick toddler; we got hit with the nasty stomach bug going around meaning fevers of 104, not eating resulting in 1 pound weight loss (not a good thing when you are only 5th percentile for weight) and moodiness for her (and me!). Now a week later she is left with a nasty cough that I am trying to decide if it is somehow related or a new thing. Who knows, allergies maybe?? Whatever it is she isn't bothered much...Monkey girl is back! No wonder I get nasty looks from other moms at the park as my 2 year old hangs upside down 6 ft off the ground by herself!
I survived with a week of good eating, maybe a little extra snacking but with planning things went pretty good and I kept myself busy enough that I wasn't eating out of boredom or just sitting. It really helped to have meals done and ready to go and packing plenty of healthy veggies thanks to our CSA. Check out Fitness Friday today for Jill's post on food additives.
Looking forward to a day at home even though it is packed with both work and home projects, but I will sneak in a workout or 2 in the middle of it all. Ready for a 20 mile run this weekend and even considering another swim! What is happening to me?! Happy Friday, have a fun weekend!
