Is this really what I look like when I swim???

Did my laps indoors while the kids played in the outdoor play pool!
OK, I no longer wish I could take/post pictures of myself after a swim workout. I mean, I'm sort of cute after a bike ride. And I'm not too bad after a run (but definitely better when I'm wearing a visor or cap than a Bondi Band). But this? This is just frightening! LOL

Today's workout was great, though. 800 yards - the longest so far in this training. I did a 200 yard warm-up, then 200 yards of endurance training (where I breathe every 5th stroke), 350 yards of speed drills (most 25s, but threw in one 50), and then a 50 yard cool down of breast stroke and back stroke. The water felt glorious today.

After my workout, I played with the kids in the play pool, and even went down the water slide and on the diving board. They are growing up so fast and they need a little encouragement to let loose and play like they used to when they were little! Seeing mom being a goofball surely helps!

Long ride tomorrow and I'm not sure where I'm going to do it yet. It'll be the longest I've done in a couple of months, I think. Looking forward to knowing how far I've ridden when I'm done! LOL


  1. How great that you took time to play with the kids! Enjoy them!

  2. Great workout today! You don't look look like you just went for a swim, which you did! :0) Glad you had a good time with the kids, too!

  3. Thanks, y'all! I definitely thought I looked less dorky when I swim! ;)
