    If you’re looking to for more thai adventure, some good segue dishes are Pad See Ewe (normally comes with broccoli and has a sweet-savory brown sauce), Pad Kee Mao (“drunken noodles” with basil), Gao Kua (chicken noodle dish with lettuce and bean sprouts).

      I agree wholeheartedly with the Drunken Noodles suggestion. Or any dish with broad rice noodles really; they are my favorite food!

    I LOVE fortune cookies, but most people I know hate ‘em. I think they taste like a waffle cone, which I also love.

    Your blog title caught my eye:
    It’s the same for many of us, i believe.

    Your swim set looked painful, especially to have hard 50s at the end after all that strength work

    I swim / bike / run for Chocolate & Treats too!

    At least you got some thai right after that super long practice! and I used to LOVE Gnu bars before I found out I couldn’t have gluten. I practically lived off of them! So good…

    I’m another vote for trying Drunken Noodles. I also used to ONLY get Pad Thai, and then stole some of my husband’s Drunken Noodles one time and loved them. So now I alternate!

    Ok, I grew up with a pool in my yard and I ABSOLUTELY did all of that Little Mermaid stuff. We used those rings that sink that you can dive for and put them around our ankles (this is my little sister and I!) to make SURE that our mermaid fins were as they should be.

    I’ve never had Thai food before. I’ve always wanted to try it though. It looks yummy! :)

    I too love a solid Pad Thai option. Haven’t had Thai in awhile – makes me want to get a good workout in so I can treat myself to some! Love that you all went to dinner as one big team – so fun to spend time together outside of the pool.

    I have a weird superstision that you have to take out the fortune and eat the whole cookie before you can read it, otherwise it won’t come true! So ridiculous but I do it everytime I get one.

      I do this too! Don’t know why I ever came up with this, but I’ve been doing it as long as I can remember!

    Mmmmm… Thai food. Next time you go try mango curry or choo chee curry. Both are delicious and you can usually get them with loads of veggies.
    Do you think the paddles are helping you with the swim? I can’t use them b/c I have a bad shoulder and my coach said it would put too much pressure on my shoulder, but I’m wondering if they help and if I should look for an alternative.

      i second the curry, its absolutely delicious!

      I think they are, but your coach is right – they really work my shoulders so if you are prone to injury there I wouldn’t use it. I don’t know enough about swimming to know anything about alternatives though. :)

    My swim coach made us — at the end of practice — swim an entire 25yd length underwater without taking a breath. You had to do it over and over until you got it and as you can imagine, each time you did it, it was MUCH harder. I hated him at the time but it’s the reason that to this day, I’m a very strong swimmer and can take lots of strokes without breaks.

    My friend worked in a thai restaurant when we were at uni, and she put me off eating carrot flowers by telling me they recycled them from plate to plate until they got too gross looking to use. Or until someone ate them ;)

    It’s good to hear that you’ve enjoyed Thai food! Delicious isn’t it? Their delicacies are so different from other countries.

    How did you find this swim workout? Is it a class? What is it called? I sooooooo want to find a class in Orlando……

      My friend Courtney invited me to be a part of her swim group back in April. It started with four people swimming together and grew from there. Felipe sorta took over the role as coach ( he does coach triathletes professionally on the side) and we all have just bonded in our tri-weekly swim practices. I know they offer master classes at my Y, which is sort of the same set-up.

    One of the best swimming breathing tips I’ve gotten is when you turn your head to breathe, your eyes should line up with the edge of the pool where it meets the wall, and no higher. When I first tried it I was shocked at how high I had been turning my neck to catch a breath, totally unncessary. Now when I see people in the pool turning dramatically to breathe, I wish I could tell them my little tip, it makes everything faster and less cumbersome.

    When you’re wearing the leg strap are you not kicking at all? So it’s like using the pull buoy but even harder since you don’t have a flotation device?

    • Meghann

      Correct. The leg strap actually ties at your ankle and keeps your legs from kicking. It’s very similar to the pull buoy, only there’s no flotation, so if you have improper form you drag and sink pretty fast.

    All of your swim workouts make me really want to find a tri group to work with. Swimming is the one thing holding back my triathlon dreams and I think I’d be so much less intimidated with a group.

    And I “high-five” to being #teamDroid. My husband has an iphone and he doesn’t get why I just don’t want one. I need my navigation!

    Is that leg strap basically the same thing as a pull buoy? Sounds like an interesting contraption.

    The actual taste of fortune cookies doesn’t do anything for me, but I am very superstitious, I have to eat the whole cookie and I have to keep the fortune. If you throw away your fortune it is bad luck! But thats just my rule!
