I am finally in a good groove where I am actually waking up before my alarm goes off. I have managed to put together everything I need to take to the gym and have it ready by the door so I can just pick it up and go. It has become enough of a routine for me that I can do it almost automatically. I say almost because today I managed to forget shorts to run in.
The plan for today was to swim. For swimming I don’t have much structure in my workouts because I basically am still at the point where I swim a 50 and stop until I stop gasping for breath and repeat. After I finished swimming, I would have changed into my running clothes and put in 30 minutes on the treadmill. I realized when I was getting my clothes out of my gym bag that I had grabbed 2 shirts and no shorts. Since the club frowns upon people working out in underwear (at least men, they are a little more lenient with the women, but that is a story for another time), I was left with no choice but to skip the run in the morning.
I may try to get my run in after my bible study tonight, but I don’t know if I will have the will to run at 9:30 and then turn around and get tomorrows workout of an hour on the bike in first thing in the morning.
Today’s swim was 800 meters with the following lap times: 1:16, 1:37, 1:27, 1:36, 1:31, 1:30, 1:28, 1:39, 1:40, 1:32, 1:50, 2:44, 1:32, 1:40, 1:39, 1:35. I wonder if I did an extra lap with that 2:44 thrown in there? Oh well, it doesn’t really matter, as you can see, my 50 m times would be decent 100 m times, so I have a long way to go in the swimming portion.
