Today was an awful day! I will spare y’all with the details of what we had to do at school today, but let’s just say it’s something I will never do again! And it made for a very uncomfortable and stressful day. And what’s a better way to relive that stress than working out?? Well chocolate and wine maybe…. but today swimming was definitely my stress reliever!!
I’m still kind of unsure of what I should be doing in the pool, so all you triathletes and swimmers, please provide me with some guidance! But for now I’m just winging it! I started out swimming 500 meters freestyle then finished up with another 500 meters alternating breast stroke and freestyle every 100 meters. So my grand total was 1000meters. Took me about 30 minutes and I felt pretty good with that. I am hoping to keep increasing my swim distance every week so this is just where I’m starting! Something about the pool is so calming. Most of the times when I’m running I think about a lot of stuff but not when I’m swimming! My mind is a completely blank canvas. It’s quite nice to not think!
Well, that’s really all I have for tonight!! Don’t forget to visit my St. Jude donation page and help me raise money for the kiddos at St. Jude!! A HUGE thank you to my first two donations: my parents and Liz from Little Bitty Bakes!! Y’all are so fabulous!! Also, if you have any good fundraising ideas, please let me know!! Have a great night!!
