- I'm wiped out....as evidenced by my craptastic swim this morning. Did not make a single interval except the warm up, and I don't think those really count.
- I get a rest week next week! Woot! Although this comes with a run test. I'm looking at that as a good thing tho. I expect to see some progress from my sad run test of a couple months ago. Reminder to self: PACE IT! Yeah, last time I did not do so well with the pacing and died off at the end. I'm sure I can do a better job of that this time 'round.
- Only one more workout this week! A brrrrrrick. I am somewhat reluctant to ride outside for it tho, even if the weather is clear, as I am lazy and don't want to have to clean all the grime off my bike that I'm sure to pick up from the still wet roads.
I've been frustrated with my lack of progress in the pool. I feel like I'm just as slow as ever. I'm not saying Masters isn't cutting it for me, because I've really only been going for a couple of weeks. I just want to get someone to really look at my stroke and see if there are some obvious places that I need to concentrate on. Am I still swimming "flat" or am I actually rotating a bit more now? Am I being lazy in my pull? What's going on with my kick? Why do fast swimmers seem to swim so effortlessly and I feel like I'm killing myself to go nowhere? You know, maybe get the answers to some of these great mysteries. So I scheduled a swim lesson for next week. It'll be interesting at the least, and at best I'll learn some key points to work on. Can't hurt anyway, eh?
And while I think these are kinda fun and definitely make a point, I'm not sure I'd want to antagonize someone in a 3k pound weapon. That could get seriously ugly seriously fast. I definitely like the "Don't Run Me Over" one tho. I have, morbidly I'm sure, been reading a lot lately about bike accidents and I have to admit that I would choose to ride on the one (boring) bike path near by rather than head out onto the roads.
And now....I'm off to my next massage appointment. Knock wood, but the shoulder is hanging in there. I've been working a little on the biggest knots and it *may* just be doing some good. Imagine that.
Happy Weekend All....and here's to some sunshine!
