Turns out that our babysitter called in sick which meant that I had to forego my running for Tuesday. All was not lost, I was able to lift some weights… almost a full workout. So, I was pleased with that.
Today, I swam 1100 meters at lunch. It was really 1097 meter based on calculations, but you'll forgive me, right? Today I felt very strong in the pool. I seemed to have my technique down right until the end when I wasn't rotating my left arm high enough. I was albe to endure 8 lap intervals with only a minute rest in between. 8 laps comes out to be 365 meters or 0.22 miles but in the lane configuration at the pool, it's only 25 yards (23 meters) until the end of lane. This means that you can push off the wall much earlier than if you are swimming when the lanes are 50 meters.
Tomorrow should be a Trail Running Day. It also looks like we will have Pete & Janet down for the 4th, so that means I can run the Fireball 5k! YAY! If I don't get the shirt, it'll only be $7 race although the Fireball shirts have been cool the past few years.
