Can You Believe....

I am actually a little sore today! I haven't been sore from a training run in a very long time. Whoo Hoo! I'm getting my groove back.

So swimming today - I knew I had to leave a little early, so I intentionally arrived early enough to get a solid swim in before practice started. I thereby did 600m warm-up (alternating strokes every 100m) and 300m with fins. I managed to squeeze another 100m before Coach asked us to hold up.

He talked a few minutes - encouraging us to participate in the upcoming Postal 3000m challenge. I am very intrigued but need to work out scheduling with DH.

The drill set was freestyle - 11 x 50m free w/ fists. I led our lane. I felt strong and confidant. We then alternated leaders for the main set (I led 2nd).... 3 rounds of 150m free (breathe control, 100m not free (we chose breast/back/breast/back), and 50m free fast. I was able to get only 2 rounds in before I had to leave for my appointment.

I was very pleased with the workout though... 2150m total.


  1. Isn't it funny when we get excited about being sore?! Are we sick or what?!

  2. I'll be excited when I'm NOT sore :-)

  3. Haha.. celebrating being sore. A true runner!

  4. Ah the things we runners/triathletes vcelebrate
