    The midweek thing was strange and kind of threw me off. Swimming is a tough workout but is one of the best because its full body. You’re doing great so far!!

    That’s a good swim workout to remember (for me!)….I need to build my swimming endurance…I struggle so much with the darn flip turn! Water up my nose almost every time.

    I wish I would have known Derek didn’t like the crumble – I would have put in a request for a small side at practice this morning for me to take for breakfast. I loved it!

    The mid-week holiday was a nice break for me. Our company implemented a new computer system last week, so having a day off in the middle of the week gave us all a much needed mental break.

    More cherry crumble for you! 🙂
    Good swim workout.. I’m not about endurance either.. I feel like swimming endurance takes longer to achieve then running. yes?

    Having a holiday mid-week actually worked out pretty well for me. Nice way to relax and tackle the rest of the week strong. 🙂

    I’m so impressed by your ability to get up, workout, eat breakfast, and then head to work. It seems like you have boundless energy, especially since you have a beautiful social life to go along with it!

    Do you have any tips on how to become an early riser? Have you always been an early riser? I don’t like using the limited time I have after work to work out, but I would rather do that than wake up before 7am any day.

      Trust me, I was not always an early riser! When I first started running in 2008 I would run after work, but some evening events came up that forced me to run in the morning a couple of days in a row. That’s when I realized that waking up at 5:30 wasn’t as bad as I thought and I actually had more energy in my runs than in the evening, plus my evenings were now free to do stuff that I wanted instead of hurrying home to run/ workout. It really only took a couple of times of setting my alarm early to get used to the new schedule.

    I actually love swimming for longer distances. I am def an endurance gal, which is good, seeing as the Half IM is in like 7 weeks!

    Yay for husbands/bfs not liking our desserts. HAH 🙂

    the holiday totally messed with me! I’ve barely done any work these two days because I feel like it should be the weekend! Haha good thing very few people are in my office to notice! And on your workout, does 100 Kick mean 100 meters using a kick board?

      Yes, except we only had one kickboard, so Mary and I traded off. I did the first 100 while kicking on my back and she did her first 100 with the kickboard. The next set, we switched.

    For endurance swimming, I like to swim 400’s with the last length (25 m for me) as breast stroke. It’s easier to breathe while swimming breast stroke and then I don’t have to take as many breaks. It also breaks up freestyle nicely and stretches out my arms so they don’t feel as tired.

    I liked having the day off on Wednesday but now I’m all screwed up! Is it Tuesday or Friday??

    I didn’t mind the mid-week holiday actually. It was nice to be able to take just two days off and end up with a 5-day holiday!

    I hated it. I work at a newspaper as an editor and all it did was make me further behind on deadlines. Now, I will have to stay late on a Friday. So boo on mid-week holidays.

    Yum, cherry crumble sounds delicious right now!

    I have been so thrown off by the mid week holiday. I keep thinking it’s Tuesday now instead of Friday. But I’m not complaining!

    I wish I could do your swimming endurance workout! I’m a worse swimmer than I am runner (!). Yesterday I tried some moves in the pool, and I was exhausted after 10 minutes (this wasn’t even with real laps). Have to work on my breathing so that I don’t keep drowning myself.
    That cherry crumble looks so good!

    If you need assistance finishing that cherry crumble, I volunteer!
    Seeing all these swimming posts makes me wish I could swim (I can doggie paddle/flail around?)!

    I’m so jealous of your swim practice. I got in a swim by myself on Friday morning, which is pretty boring. And I just swim laps without a real plan. Still wrestling with my goggles which sucks but hoping to buy new ones today!

    Happy Weekend!
