So, swam again yesterday. Sorry running blog. I did 600yards in approx. 25min. Felt really good. I wasn't as sore yesterday as I thought I'd be after the 8miles Saturday. That was surprising, still didn't really feel up to a run though. I varied my pace (? is that what you call it in swimming?) a bit from lap 5-10. I went faster, less worried about my breathing, and surprise, I breathed okay. On both sides! It's feeling a bit more natural. I think I'll swim again tomorrow. Run, swim, run...repeat.
Today, I calibrated my nike ipod for another 0.25, so 3miles total. Semi tempo run. Did the first 0.25 at 5.0 then 5.5 up until the last 0.25 miles which I did at 5.0 again. Felt good, but hot even indoors! I am a sweaty mess when I'm done with my runs, maybe that's why the pool feels so good, not too much sweating going on. But, on my runs, maybe I'm getting so hot because I'm not properly hydrated? I really enjoyed my 8miles I think because I had my water with me. We'll see. Don't work again till Wed. evening. yay for household chores and working out.
