So I went swimming for the first time in 3 weeks and I must say that it wasn’t too bad. I swam a straight 1650 in about 25 minutes. But then these ladies got in and started swimming incorrectly in the lane and messed me up and I got out. (Which was easier said than done because even thought my shoulders were only a little warm, when I pulled myself out of the pool I definitely felt the fatigue)
So now, because nights are open to lap swimmers, if I actually want to get a good workout in, I have to start swimming at 6am again -_-
Oh well, can’t be helped I guess. I’ll be doing the early thing M, W, F and then the coach for the high school kids who swim at our pool said she would let me swim with them on T + Th which is cool cause I’ll hopefully get 1 1/2 hours in on those days. And then Saturday mornings I’ll also be able to swim for 1 1/2 hours with 30 mins. of dry-lands beforehand.
But that also means that I had to re-work my whole schedule, and now I’ll swim Mon-Sat, run Tues + Thurs mornings and strength train M, W + F nights.
I’m tired already just thinking about it.

Starting this today
So I’ve sorta been out of the fitness game since August 30th - I went on vacation. And although I did walk about 30 miles and encountered more stairs than ever before in my life, it’s about time for me to get back to my usual grind and more.
The pool that I swim at now has Friday and Saturday practices, so I’ll be going to those which is exciting. (I used to only swim Monday - Thursday) I also need to get back to my running 3x a week before work so I have good enough endurance to survive the zombie apocalypse.
A neat looking yoga challenge popped up on my dash, so I’m going to try that. And I also got a squat challenge in my email from myfitnesspal (ehmergherd, add me so we can hassle each other and junk).
I’ve also been looking up and planning out some clean eating meals - today is actually my meal prep day for the week and I’m excited because I love cooking. Bringing fish back into my diet has sure made my life a lot easier, especially now that I’m soy intolerant.
So yeah, there’s an update on my fitness life and such. I know ya’ll were on pins and needles because I’ve been out of the game for so long ;P
