It's 930am, & I've been up for 5 hours already. Let me show you my lion pose: *big-yawn*
Getting up at 430am for swimming? It's tough on a gal who sleeps until 730am every day. (Doesn't that seem like sleeping in now?!)
I would have opted to go to the **new** evening swim today, but someone owed me a cheque for the Mooseman house rental. & I get paid only on the last Friday of the month. Since I haven't gotten paid in 4 weeks & fronted the Mooseman house rental at the beginning of the month, I needed the cheque.
So, I got my lazy butt out of bed & swam this morning.
In the 4 months of my break, I dropped two lanes down. I'm not terribly upset about it. The "elite" swimmers had taken over my lane, & I was having trouble hanging with them. When I dropped down a lane, Coach talked with me about my level of exertion. We decided that I should drop another lane.
After I settled into my new lane, I had a great swim. I had trouble doing my Zone 4 & Zone 5a swims at the end, but I think I'll bounce back quickly.
I've officially started all 3 sports now - & I've added strength training daily to the mix.
It may be time to increase the food budget by 200$.
nowhere to go but up. (Part II)
