I was really questioning why I had agreed to 6:30am swim workouts when my alarm went off at 5:30 this morning. After traveling most of the day yesterday, attending a Yelp event, then staying up way too late playing catch up from the weekend on the computer, I felt like a zombie when I crawled out of bed after barely 5 hours of sleep. I was *this close* to sending a group text and bailing on the workout, but once I was up and semi-motivated I knew I could push through it.
You never regret a workout, but you do regret not doing one. If I hadn’t gone I would have regretted it, especially when I showed up and almost the whole team was there (we missed you, Chuck!).
Today’s workout was a fun one – a progression swim at a medium-hard pace. I liked this because A) it broke the workout up, B) I enjoy pushing myself, and C) NO PADDLES!!!! My first non-paddle swim workout in a month! Woo hoo!!!!
- Warm-up: 400 easy
- 300 medium hard
- 6 x 50 @ 1:20
- 200 medium hard
- 4 x 50 @ 1:20
- 100 medium hard
- 2 x 50 @ 1:00
- Cool down: 100 easy
The last two 50s were hard and my fastest of the the workout. It felt good to push myself knowing they were my last hard set. Funny how that works.
All done and ready for the day!
I headed home after the workout and made a bowl of yogurt and cereal for breakfast.
- 1/2 cup Kashi Go Lean Crisp
- 1/2 cup Kashi Cinnamon H2H
- Vanilla Chobani
I usually go for the plain yogurt, but lately my sweet tooth has been requesting vanilla. I wonder if that has anything to do with the summer heat?
Also, blueberries = fabulous right now! Yum!
Looks like someone had too much fun at doggie camp over the weekend.
Maddie returned from doggie camp yesterday with another stellar report from the staff. They told me she was a little shy at first, but once she realized she had free reign to play all day, there was no stopping her! She ate all her food, had all her treats, and played, played, played with all the other dogs. Basically, she had a ball and will now proceed to sleep 48 hours straight. I think mama loves doggie camp as much as Maddie does – woo hoo for sleepy puppies!
Time to get some work done. Adios!
