Swimming Class

I sincerely think that there is a good chance that this stroke improvement class is going to kill me. I am so freakin' tired. I bet we did a MILLION lengths. Seriously. A MILLION.

On the plus side, the teacher noticed that I wasn't rolling my shoulders in the strokes between breaths. I had forgotten I was supposed to do that because I was so busy trying not to drown. BUT, once I fixed that, it went better. I had to use flippers, but I was able to keep up with the rest of the class. Yay me!

Food wise, having a good day. I'm sad to say that I just noticed at 3:00 that I hadn't had anything to drink all day except two cups of coffee! I'm drinking a litre right now. Sheesh. What a dope I am. Can't do all that swimming and not drink any water. Bet that is one of the reasons I'm dragging my ass.

It is so nice out today. I'm going to go for a walk before or after dinner. I doubt I will have the energy for more than one loop around my neighbourhood (5.4k). Hell, I may not even have enough energy for one, but I'm gonna try!! I have that 1/2 marathon at the beginning of July - I figure I should be walking at least an hour a day now.

Mmm, I can smell the chicken I'm cooking for supper - smells good.

Have a healthy day bloggers!


  1. You inspire me to do different workouts! Good for you on the swimming!! Oh, and lack of water makes me feel very tired, too!!! Good luck on the walk tonight!

  2. Great job on your swimming and thats great that the teacher pointed out what you were doing wrong to help you out!

  3. Sounds like the swimming class is a good work out, plus you walk, that's great, I would die after just swimming.

    Also, it's amazing how water can make or break you, I definitely notice that if I don't drink mine I am more sluggish.
