Everybody but me
I've been feeling good about the small swim progress I've been making and today I set the intention that I would have my best swim of the week! I was kicking butt during the warm up, pushing off the wall extra hard, cruising and bruising and then coach called 800 IM. My first thought was, "Is that legal?" I mean, it seems like it should be illegal. It's ridiculous!
I ended up swimming mostly freestyle during the set and barely survived doing that. I found out that I am tired from the increased training. Next was 8 x 100 with fins and paddles. I used to hate 500s, now I hate 800s. After class, I asked the other women in the locker room if the workout was hard and everyone said, "It was great! I loved that set!" So I went to Bill and asked if he suffered (my sympathetic husband who loves me dearly) and he said, "I had the best workout! I was lapping people in my lane. Felt great!"
Let's forget about that workout for now. I bought the compression sleeves last night, for myself only, and got an email that they are on backorder. :( I'll report back on them after they arrive. I want to talk about other stuff but I'm tired. Tomorrow!
