    As much as I’d be bummed to get to the pool only to find out that practice was cancelled, it’s also a good reason to just get your workout in and done. Good for you!!

    Now you get the bragging rights too that you went while everyone else slept. =)

    I did some sit-ups and push-ups this morning, and I had to tell myself the same thing, “It won’t last that long. I can do a few of these. Less than 30 minutes is no big deal.” Good for you for getting your swim in!*

    Way to get it done – I would have been tempted to go find the hot tub or the sauna. :-p

    I’ve been there before, made plans with a friend to meet for yoga or some other class, and have had them bail last minute. It’s like suddenly all motivation goes flying out the window. It always feels so good to suck it up and do it anyway! Bet you’re glad you got that swim checked off your list!

    Don’t focus on the negative (sleeping in) and focus on the positive (getting a good workout in). Solo workouts make it easier to concentrate on the task at hand, so it all worked out well. πŸ˜‰

    Was reading through some of your very old (and first!) posts yesterday, and noticed that you used to dislike yogurt.

    When did you start to like yogurt? And did you start by eating flavored ones, and then switched to plain?

      It was Greek yogurt that pulled me in – I still can’t stand “regular” yogurt, yuck. I started eating flavors (Chobani peach was the first one I liked) and it grew from there. I’m still not a fan of plain on it’s own, but I do enjoy it with cereal, fruit, and jam. πŸ™‚

    Hey at least you did something! After seeing those texts, I probably would have turned my car around, lol.

    Props to you for getting your workout in sans coach and teammates! There is something about swimming that makes it so hard to self motivate! When I run I can definitely push myself, but when swimming, I feel like just having someone in the lane next to you makes you swim SO much faster.

    Haha I was the only swimmer along with the tri captain this past week. We could’ve just cancelled practice but we just decided to go ahead and swim anyway. πŸ˜› Yay swimming!

    Another reason I love CrossFit… I push myself way harder when others are around as well!!

    I started running with a training group just last week — now I can’t imagine how I’m going to do long runs without them when work interferes with attending Sunday morning practice. I definitely know what you mean about feeding off the energy and motivation of others.
    And I am DEFINITELY buying some melon this weekend. Biggest craving ever!!
