Im Turning into a Fish

2 hours in the pool tonight...and I am pooped!

I swam tonight with my swimming partner tonight and was so happy to get to see her.  We haven't been able to swim for a few weeks so it was nice to see her again.  She swam so well tonight.  We dipped in the hot tub, best part, then it was time for me to swim some laps to finish off my workout for the day. 

I swam about half of my laps and couldn't get my goggles to un-fog so I had to take them off for a minute.  I wasn't going to swim without them so I started to run in the pool.  The doc said that it would be fine in the pool just not on solid ground.  So I ran a quarter mile and my legs were burning.  It was so much harder than I expected.  My goggles were dried out so I swam some more laps then back to the running.  I just swapped these two things back and forth and was able to get about 75 minute workout in the pool.  If you have not tried running in the pool you should give it a try...but buy water shoes because my feet are a little bit sore on the bottom.

I was going to swim tomorrow morning but I am thinking I'm taking the workout to dry land in the morning because I need a short break from the pool.  Just a day but my skin is going to fall off if I don't get all this chlorine off of me. 

Now check your clocks because I am home before 11pm, its actually 6:52pm here.  I have already eaten my supper and packed my bags for tomorrow and I am plopped down on the couch waiting on Biggest Loser!  All I have left to do for tomorrow is pack my lunch.  I am never this ahead of schedule.  See my day looked up pretty quickly.

I love your blog! I wear the body bugg from biggest loser and I am using the cinch products and vitamins from shaklee which I love. My goal is to run a half marathon. You are doing awesome!

I have just started wearing my body bugg again. I kinda got out of the habit but I have it back on now. It is a handy little tool.

good luck with your half marathon, I just know you can do it. It is one of the greatest feelings ever to cross that finish line. If you wanna come down to TN there is a half coming up.
