I went to swim this morning with my regular Luna bar and Nuun cocktail. It was clearly NOT ENOUGH!! It was a rough morning in the pool. It started decent but got bad real quick!
I have said this before and this probably will not be the last time I mention it: I HATE THRESHOLD SWIMS! I always get nervous whether it is just a work out or a testing day. Today was no different. The lane I swim is has a threshold pace of 1:45 per 100 meters. I am pretty sure I am in the wrong lane but Chris, our
mean awesome coach, insists that I swim there. When I drop down a lane he always asks “are you tired today?” Why YES I am tired but that is no different than any other day that I am awake and working out at 5:30AM!!
Anywho! We had a rather long warm up and then our main set was: 8×200 at threshold pace. Which means we had to complete the 200 in 3:30-3:35 and then we got 20 seconds of rest. I was done after the first 4. I thought I was going to die after 6. By the 8th one I thought someone please kill me…but at least we were done!! I just had a HARD mental toughness day. Erica told me she had a hard day too so it was not just me.
I got home and was totally RAVENOUS! I was so hungry I thought I might actually die right now. I drank some chocolate milk and made an egg scramble on a brown rice tortilla:
I do actually eat healthy. I know it is hard to believe with all the treats I bake. I just like treats. Lots of them!!
I was also very tired. I took a quick power nap and went outside to find out that it was raining. Dang it!
I tried to embrace it because starting next week my commute doubles and it will still be raining for the next 5 months!
To top off my day: I had a 5-year-old bite me! The most ironic thing about that is: He said “remember when I bit you the first time I saw you.” As a matter a fact I do! I am always very careful with him because of that first time! I was in a hurry and my boss was supposed to see him and she was running late(big surprise)!! I was just caught off guard and it HURT!!!
I was pleasantly surprised for the dry commute home. Thank you rain gods!
Did you do anything in the rain today? OR What did you NOT do in the rain today??
