I feel crappy today.
In more positive news, I rocked the sh*t out of my workout yesterday! It was my second crack at that crazy 1500 swim workout and I was scared. My energy was low when I arrived at the gym and I gave myself full permission to suck.
I did not suck! In fact, I kicked ass in 42:40! I know I shouldn’t be concerned about time in these early stages but whatever. It’s still exciting. I’m fairly certain the reason I was faster was because I managed to swim freestyle almost the entire workout! We’re talking like 100 meters breaststroke total! WOOOO! The swimming is clicking and I’m loving it!
After the swim, I got on the treadmill for an easy 3 mile run. My heart rate was so low, I thought my addled post-swim brain was misreading the pace. Wow. I finished with a 9:38 pace which I would be very pleased with in a triathlon.
Carbohydrates for the win. Ugh. Winning for workouts. Not winning for wedding dress. I HATE having to choose between bloaty carb belly (with excellent workouts) and svelte (but exhausted). Though, I suppose I win either way. 😀
