I just had THE BEST SWIM! I don’t know what happened, but suddenly everything clicked and swimming 1,500 meters felt EASY. Actually, it was fun and relaxing! I wasn’t gasping for breath and didn’t feel sore. It’s like my body suddenly integrated of all Ryan’s swimming tips.
I shaved a miraculous 4 minutes off my best 1,500 meter (non-wetsuit) swim time, wrapping it up in about 30 minutes! If I can do that during the triathlon, I’ll be so pleased!
My training plan called for me to run after my swim, but my legs feel very sore, and I decided it would be better to give my body a little break. I’m going to bike and run the race distances tomorrow in a brick-style workout anyway, so it’s probably for the best.
Other than that, all I did today was work on my freelance article and nap. But my eats were delicious!
Lunch was delicious, if not a little strange looking. 🙂
I had a sweet potato with about 1.5 servings of canned baked beans. I drank a Green Monster (1 cup rice milk, 2 cups raw spinach, 1 banana, 1 tablespoon flax) on the side.
I snacked on Chobani pineapple around 3:
And before my swim, I had toast with raspberry jam and Barney Butter (plus an instant coffee):
Oh, and guess what I got in the mail?
The Total Immersion DVD! According to the website, “Total Immersion is a foolproof approach to teaching, brings results far faster than conventional methods and helps any student master a fluent, efficient, and beautiful technique.”
So many bloggers and readers recommended it that I contacted the company and asked if I could review the DVD + do a giveaway. I’m going to watch it later and will do the giveaway on Monday – stay tuned!
I think the Hus wants to go to the movies and grab dinner tonight – sounds good to me! 🙂
** Edited to Add: Thanks for all the thoughtful comments on the Birth Control post. It’s interesting to read other women’s experiences. I think the comments prove that there is no blanket solution for everyone – we must choose what works for our lifestyle. I appreciate hearing other people’s thoughts and THANKS for keeping it kosher. One of my favorite things about blogging is when people can agree to disagree in a thoughtful and intelligent way. 🙂
That is awesome about your swim!!! Your lunch looks good. I have yet to try sweet potatos and baked beans and need to. They are two of my favs.
Have fun with hus tonight!
