So I’ve figured it out. What, you ask? Well, I’ve finally figured out why I’ve felt so *crappy* while running on the treadmill. Since I’m running in place I concentrate too much on the time/mileage compared to when I run outside when I can just soak up the surroundings. So my new rule on the treadmill is this: don’t look at the time/mileage. Simple enough right? Exactly, plus now I’m just honing my hard-core creeper skills as I watch people work out in the gym while I run. I’ve decided that I’m going to try to get my creeper face to look like this: while I run.
I’m going to work on it and then get back to y’all.
Anywho, after my 3 meetings yesterday I managed to squeeze in some time to go for a quick swim. I was very excited, mostly because I felt like I was having a FML type moment in my life, but also because I really love swimming. Realistically, I don’t think I could ever really make it on the swim team here at school, but I just love swimming and it’s partially why I love triathlons; because I get to swim for the first part of the race. 🙂
Anywho, I only planned on doing a 500 yard swim, but once I got there and got in the pool I decided I definitely needed to go longer. Partially because of the FML moments and partially because being in the water just seems so right to me. I ended up doing 1000 yards like 6 minutes faster than I ever had before. I think it had to do with the fact that I didn’t really let myself rest at all. When I swim I feel like this;
All smooth and streamlined. And in reality I probably look more like this:
But that’s just how I feel. Bahaha anywho, I just thought I should let everyone know that because of swimming I’m madly in love with Michael Phelps. True Life Fact: I have a future celebrity husband in every sport. For swimming it is this lovely creature:
Anywho, I believe that that is enough of my ridiculous ramblings for now. I will update everyone in the next post on how I stay on top of my busy schedule and how I work in my workouts and food. So until then, TTFN.
