So a week ago, I wrote about how hard swimming was. Today we swam again - our 4th swim. I have already made significant progress. Today we swam 1500 meters - that's almost a mile!!! (.9320568 miles to be exact) It felt great. I didn't need as much recovery time between exercises and worked on consistency. There's 2 things I want to work on, as a personal goal. I want to be able to breath on both sides (right now it's only to the right) and I want to be able to do the flippy thingy at the end of a lap like the REAL swimmers do. If anyone needs a bit of entertainment or a laugh for a day, please come watch. I tried to flip today and the only way to put in perspective how sad it was - I'm probably sure that the lifeguard stood up thinking "Oh, my! That girl over there must be having a seizure in the pool and is rolling around.....Oh wait, no she's fine..." It was that bad. Maybe I'll wait until a day when the pool isn't as crowded to work on that to save some of dignity.
One more workout this week (Thursday) since we will be out of town for a wedding this weekend. Hopefully we will get home Sunday (after a 7 hr drive) and something will motivate me to workout.....not sure if that will work, but I'll try. Since I am usually fairly successful with meals and workouts when I have a set schedule to follow, this weekend will be my first challenge by breaking that routine. I will try....I keep telling myself I can DO IT! "Only one piece of wedding cake, only one piece of wedding cake, only one piece of wedding cake." :)
