Last Saturday my swimming buddy and I swam! Granted, most of that was social kick (the equivalent of going for a long chatty walk, only with kickboards and fins), but we were there, we were in the water, and we swam some laps.
And I don't know about her, but wow, am I out of shape.
Then we did it again on Monday! I got to the pool at 6:30 AM and swam and it was still hard, but it was good too. Actually, we commented to each other on Monday how we had each felt so *good* on Saturday following our swim. Something about being back in the water. It really is my happy place, even if it is a dank, indoor YMCA pool.
The PLAN was to elliptical Tuesday, strength train Wednesday, swim this morning, strength train tomorrow, and swim with my buddy again on Saturday morning.
Tuesday, I was lazy. That's all I got.
Wednesday, I was tired. We got home from choir rehearsal around 10:30, which meant I was in bed asleep around 11:30, and after a full day of busy work followed by choir rehearsal, I wanted to sleep instead of get up at 5:45. I don't even remember my alarm going off, if I'm honest.
This morning we woke up to slushy, slippery snow and an unplowed street. And 40 mile per hour winds. No.
Then I come in today and turns out tomorrow morning I have an 8 AM conference call. Surprise! That means the 6:30-7:30 strength training class won't work out. However, swimming buddy and I might be going on a walk tomorrow after work, depending on how the storm heading our way tonight shakes out.
And we're definitely swimming Saturday!
So I won't be meeting my goals this week, which are to swim 3 days a week and strength train 1 day a week. But at least I'm finally back in the pool.
