Swam today with the hubby. I think he's seen how toned I'm getting and wants to join in. Ha! Just kidding. But he's been trying. He's been working on his form and breathing just like I was at the beginning of the summer. I swam 20 laps and wanted to swim it in under 1/2hr, which was about how long it took me last week. 28:20 today. Yay. Wearing my watch is helping. And, when I was done I turned to my husband and said "I'm going to do a few cool down laps". Can you believe it?! My husband said "be careful!" cause I had said I was a tingly from swimming the last 4 laps at a faster pace than normal to finish in time. I said casually, "I'm just cooling down, I'm not going to go fast". I swam a SLOW lap of freestyle and a length of back and a length of breast in four minutes. Talk about slow.
Fun times. I think it was the best choice to swim instead of run cause my hamstrings are sore! I gardened after my 6mile run the other day and that did me in.
So on a tangent...We're thinking about starting a family in the next couple of years. Which means I'll be pregnant. Does anyone have any thoughts about running or swimming during pregnancy? I thought I'd get good enough at swimming for that to be my main form of exercise in the later months cause frankly it just seems like it would be too uncomfortable to run. But I've never been pregnant, so, what do I know. Just a thought. I'm girlie I think about these things....sorry.
