  1. swim
    good Odd workout 1050 yd

    So I got ready for a swim and had no idea what I was going to do. Recipe for disaster....
    I warmed up with 250.
    Then randomly decided to do the 10x 100.
    managed 6 x 100.
    all of a sudden on numb... read more

    good Whatever 1.5 mi

    Did a little bit of elliptical today. Then I fancied a weights workout, but really didn't have the focus or energy to do it.
    so:
    Some mountain climbers
    chest press
    hip hikes
    Then I realized ... read more

    Finally got up early enough to get in a real swim. Had a good one. The lifeguard says that my new stroke makes me look "More aggressive" Ha ha ha ha ha. maybe that's why I'v... read more

    alright wild times at the gym 01:00

    So I actually did 20 min of the Arc trainer. Yay. Then I had to "fire the intern" which took some time and Coach C. allowed me to cycle on the bike (which he never does!)so I got about ... read more

      Smiling is overrated...even if you have a good one. The last place I want to smile is when I'm exercising. You did do an awesome job

    Actual workout and stuff 1600 yd 00:45 49:30 pace

    Had the surprise of the early morning with Coach Don being at the pool. Apparently he is there every am with the high school aged team but I never noticed. He secretly watched me... Ugh but really ... read more

  6. On a total side note that I feel I can't put anywhere like Facebook. I REALLY don't want to go to work today. Anyone else rather do workout than work?

  7. swim
    Blah 3300 m 01:28 42:54 pace

    This wasn't awesome. I shared a lane and as an added bonus I was never passed by the swimmer. It felt a bit like a slog. Had a good conversation with the swim coaches. Then got rained on!

      As long as it's raining while you're still swimming, not so bad. Great distance Holly.

    I thought this would be pretty rough after the morning swim etc. But, it was actually pretty smooth going. I practiced my new technique and wore a rash guard for the first time (I can see why that... read more

      Isn't it wonderful and uplifting to have one's progress and hard work acknowledged? As for work, throw them all in the pool! :-)

    Discovery

    So I tried the Octane elliptical this afternoon, it allows one to shorten or increase the length of steps. As I expected, it bothered my leg a lot less than the ARC trainer. My current coach does... read more

    Pool is closed for most of the day for a swim meet, so I hit the Lake which is always a good choice for me when I'm feeling less than happy. It was PERFECT. Got to see a lot of people I like... read more

    Still grumpy, and intern-annoyed, I hit the pool. One of my favorite lifeguards was there and she introduced me to Dan, as Adonis of a triathlete. He moaned about something, I moaned about the i... read more

      Honestly, I am working on a small tactful little speech for my coach. Funny thing is that he is definitely not one for the "smile" attitude, so he's missing what she is doing or...He just wants me to "get it"

    Yes, swim number 3. 01:00

    I swam in the infinity pool and worked on stroke with coach C. I oddly love the infinity pool, it's more like open water, in that there is the resistance. He did seem to turn it up and turn i... read more
