Honestly, I was dreading getting in this morning - because I could feel how the being out had already affected my cardio capabilities. The first week out I was okay because I was doing a lot of shoveling, but the last 2 weeks I've done nada in terms of working out. Bad make_your_move, no biscuit. On the positive side I have started my Nutrisystem program.
The pool was cooler than I remembered, but I got in and Jean (my coach) had me do a 300m warm-up. Oh, good googly-moogly - I swam like a newbie. But I got through it. Then I had a 500m drill of 50 back stroke, 50 breaststroke, 50 freestyle. Lather, rinse, repeat on that. Then 2, 50m freestyle (all of those with a supposed 10 second break ... which didn't quite happen). Then I had a 200m pull, a 200m kick and a 100 cool down.
So YES! 1200m all together. Not bad for being out for so long. I feel good!
Tomorrow I'm headed into the gym for bike and some treadmill time. Frankly I'm dreading that too, but I won't let it stop me.
Food wise I did really well, the first half-week on the program. Then, for some reason, I torpedoed myself with 3 days of eating out in a row. Lunch, Lunch, Dinner, Dinner. That was dumb. This week, I'm sticking to the program all week. ~shakes head ruefully~. And I was doing really well too. At least I can see the pitfalls and see the immediate affects of my own hubris. I even thought I was making good choices.... but I think there was a lot of sodium in it and that didn't help.
Hopefully, this week's eating well combined with working out again, will show some awesome results.
What about you guys? What are you all up too?
