Whether I'm working or not, I always end up waking up around 5:30am. It was like that yesterday and today was no different. This morning I planned on going to the lake to practice more on my swimming.
drowning my swimming feels like....
I haven't posted much about my swimming, but I have been going over to Webster Lake (or Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg in these parts) at least 3-4 times a week. I got there this morning a bit before 7am and I chugged at it for good hour or so. My swimming still sucks, but I'm starting to feel a bit more comfortable with it. I can't go for long distances yet and I ended up getting way too tired too fast. I have gotten some pointers by a few people at work, but I have a hard time applying their tips to my swimming. It's hard. I need to get the whole breathing at the right time and not swallowing a gallon of water thing down pat first. That is my biggest challenge..... One day at a time I guess.
After "swimming", I rode my bike for a good 8 miles around town and went back home. The kids were still sleeping when I got back so I decided to throw on my running shoes and go for a quick one. I did my usual 4.5 miles loop.
I just did a mini triathlon!! And it felt great! Only a couple weeks of this great weather left, I must do this a couple more times! I'm tellin' ya, if I can get past my swimming issue, a triathlon is a definite in my future! I welcome any tips.
This weekend I plan on running some trails at Douglas State Forest. I joined a couple of local Facebook Running\Runners groups and I'm trying to get a few people that may know the area join me. I have gotten a few responses but no bites yet. Don't really want to run them by myself, but I guess I will if I have to.
Have a great weekend everyone!!
