4.21.14 Workout of the Day

Morning swim with the Masters swim team at the YWCA, no afternoon/evening workout. Met a friend for dinner instead 🙂 The plan for tomorrow is a morning swim and lift and hopefully an afternoon/evening bike ride with Dylan. But now that my gym bag is packed and my lunch is made for tomorrow, I can … Continue reading

4.2.13: Workout of the Day

Yesterday, I was going to go to the gym in the morning and swim a mile and do a quick lift before work. Today, I planned to do Masters in the morning and run in the afternoon after work. Yesterday, I skipped the gym to spend an extra hour in bed, snuggling with Dylan. We … Continue reading

3.31.14…and I’m back!

Last week was ridiculous – training five days in a row, sick for four days in a row – sick enough to miss work on Thursday! It started out as a head cold, and just never got better – achiness, fever, but never got to a full-blown flu. We still looked at houses on Wednesday … Continue reading

2.28.14 WOD – Swimming

Woke up and swam this morning, separate from Master’s swimming. Went to the downtown location to swim in the meter pool – same thing I’ve been doing for the past few weeks. I was definitely sore this morning from yesterday’s lift, but I was still able to get through most of my swim workout. I … Continue reading

2.19.14 Workout of the Day

Again – one day late – but here’s yesterday’s workout! Masters swim workout in the morning, work during the day, over to a friend’s house in the evening. No two-a-day for this Wednesday – opted out of working out to enjoy dinner, venting, and wedding planning with a friend. No workout on Tuesday – Dylan … Continue reading

2.17.14 Workout of the Day

Monday’s workout: morning swim at Masters! No two-a-day on Monday; after work, Dylan and I joined some friends for Part II of a pizza challenge – visiting various pizza joints across the city to decide which place has the best pizza. The place we visited last night – Pizzeria Lola – has a photo booth, … Continue reading

Weekly Update: 1/12/14 – 1/18/14

Total yards swam for this week: 10,430 yards. Odd numbers happen when you swim in a meter pool. Oh well! I’ve mentioned a couple times on my blog that I struggle with Friday morning Masters practices; I’m not a big fan of how the practices are structured. It’s nothing against the coach, but I enjoy … Continue reading

1.16.14 Workout of the Day

One of the things I had told myself is that I would work on my non free strokes when I wasn’t swimming Masters practices. Even though we do non free during practice, I’ll usually avoid it during “choice” sets just so I can keep up with my lane. Plus, in most cases, the non free … Continue reading
