    I thought you were starting hard-core IM training in April? Why the delay ’til May?

      I’m doing a 24 week plan that starts the first week of May.

    Yeah I do love running in the cold but I have to book it to the car as soon as I stop otherwise it’s too cold!

    I’d take Florida weather anytime. It just stopped snowing here in Ohio. I’d like to start running outside in shorts. 🙂

    Good for you for not bailing on practice! It can be so easy to talk yourself out of evening commitments after a long day at work — at least it’s easy for me anyway… 🙂

    Jealous of your year-round outdoor pool! It is so much more enjoyable to train outdoors. The outdoor pools here don’t open until Memorial Day – can’t come soon enough!

    I hear ya on the cold spring. When I signed up for a 5 a.m. workout program starting at the end of March, I was not anticipating having to wake up even earlier to scrape the ice off of my car. “Real” spring will be here soon, right? Right?! 🙂

      It was in the 40s 😉 It’s also all relative. Steph (the girl next to me) is from DC by way of Chicago and New Jersey so if she was also complaining it was cold I feel a little better about it.

    I’m such a wimp to the cold – I hate it! But, oddly enough, I love winter more than summer because I do think it’s way easier to warm yourself up than it is to cool yourself off? Anyway, I’m joining the bandwagon on the SO. READY. for summer thing – us midwesterners are getting awful sick of all this snow!

    We have a heated lap pool in our apartment. But I’ve been too chicken to swim since we moved in. I’ll have to do something stupid like register for a triathlon to get me going again!

    That is my favorite slow cooker meal! We make it at least once a week. We love to shred it and use it for tacos or nachos. YUM!

    Salsa chicken is one of my favorite simple meals! Also, I HATE when it’s cold outside and you have to swim. I feel like my arms freeze with every stroke! haha

    So how did you find this swim team? Are there any real beginners on it (meaning, can swim, just not “properly”)? What are the costs?

    Sorry… just trying to start researching…

      I swim with my friends and we call eachother a team. The only fees we pay are for the pools.

    If you are out of shape you should not necessarily just get in the pool and do the workout as it is written. Pulling is a training tool for increasing resistance on the shoulders once they are in shape. If you haven’t been swimming in a month is is not good for your shoulders to pull a 1000. Do the workout, just without paddles, it doesn’t make it less of a workout.

    I’ve really been meaning to get back in the pool once a week or so, just by myself to work on my breathing and improve my swimming a bit if I ever want to complete a triathlon. Weekends are usually the only time I’m motivated to do it, and lately they’ve just been so jam packed with trips and whatnot. I’m looking forward to a weekend at home and hopefully an excuse to get a swim in!

    I love swimming and it is really nice to get into a warm pool….but in the cold – you are a lot braver than me! Your meals you prepared look really great. Bet you cannot wait to get down to the pool when the weather warms up and have your strawberries at the pool side.

    There really is something about swimming that just makes you so tired afterwards! I always find that. After a hard swim, I just want to go home and never move again.

    The crockpot meal looks delicious!

    Florida weather is so weird! We were at almost 90 degrees Sunday and last night I had to cover my plants bc of a freeze warning. I don’t get it.

    You pretty much just summed up my life, good job for talking yourself into going to work out. Last night I had to go grocery shopping, cook dinner, fold laundry, all the blah tasks everyone has. I used it as an excuse NOT to go to the gym after work and I didn’t even clean my room and fold my laundry. I watched House instead, I am not even a fan of the show… tonight is a different story, off to the gym I go!

    Oiye, I hated afternoon swim practice when it was just so cold out. Jumping in the water always seemed better and moving worked, but the act of getting out there was just soooo hard. I was shivering just looking at your photo. lol.

    How long do you leave the crock pot on by itself for? I’m usually gone for more than 8 hours from my house and am scared of leaving the crockpot on during that time. Afraid of something burning and catching fire.

      I set it on low for 10 hours. After that it automatically flips to a “warm” setting. I think it’s fine like.

    I’ve been meaning to try your “salsa chicken” for a while now and yesterday was the day! I don’t know why I waited so long. I like salsa. I like chicken. And, it made putting together dinner pretty much the easiest thing ever! http://cakeforbreakfast.net/2013/03/29/30-i-can-do-it-in-5/

    Thanks!
