Well, we have had some friends in town the past few days and before that it was family in town (for the trials). I got a long run in Saturday though. I wanted to try for 8 miles which would have been my longest yet. But when I'm going so slow, it just takes so long! Plus my husband hopped on the treadmill next to me and asked "should we have burger king for lunch today?" All I could think of was greasy hamburgers and salty French fries and my stomach was turning. I had to stop at 6! That comment alone made me so nauseous. I was fine once I stopped running.
Today my plan was to swim in the morning, concentrate on breathing (ha), and run this evening. But it's getting late, I spent time with the out of town friends this evening instead. The swimming went well. 600 yards (12 laps) in less than 25minutes maybe? That was a total guess, I really have no idea how long I swam for. But I did manage to keep track of my laps in my head. Did mostly freestyle with one lap of breast and one lap of back. I just have to perfect the butterfly with out looking like an a%& and I'll be able to do the IM. I also am trying to concentrate on looking fluid and well, good in the pool. I was in a lane next to splashy-mc-splasherton and it was annoying! I want to be one of those swimmers were it's effortless. It's just second nature. Surprise, I'm not there yet since I can count the number of times I've swum on one hand. I found I do like swimming outside. And my gym does have an outdoor pool but it was being used for kids swim lessons this morning. Maybe I could have joined in?
Happy Monday everybody. I'm off to work 12's the next three days so it won't be too thrilling this week workout wise. I'm hoping to squeeze in a run in the next three days and then another long-ish run on Saturday.
