Yep, I was born to swim. Why I haven’t gone to the Olympics is crazy! Obviously, if you haven’t figured it out already, but the equation of H2O+Tara= not the best match. Why? Not sure exactly, just never fell in love with swimming.
Since I am training for the Beaver lake Triathlon in August, it is mandatory that I get my ass into a pool and lake. Yes, a real lake with real waves, people, etc. I’d love to do it in a pool, but that wasn’t a go. I don’t know why I complain so much about it, this isn’t my first rodeo. Maybe that it has been seven years since my last. No.Big.Deal.
All I hear are complaints. Good job Tara. The complaining will STOP today. Why do you ask? I actually went swimming in a pool. Honestly, I am not a swimmer, never been but maybe in the future. I did my 45 minute indoor bike while watching another new series Breaking Bad. Only watched the first episode, but of course more will come. Are you cereal? Yep!
Okkkk back to the workout… after I finished on the bike, I changed into my bikini, got my googles and dove right into the water. Well, not really more like stepped in.
I swam for 20 minutes; doing more than the necessary quarter mile. Honestly, I was dumb founded with what I could do! I haven’t swam in years. Seafair and random boating adventures do not count.
I am proud of myself! For doing something that scares me, because it is new and I am not good at it!
I might have mentioned that I ran around 21 miles over this past weekend. My hip flexor are mad. Real mad. Something tells me I need to stretch more.
There will be lots of this happening.
Running will be reduced this week which is fine. More swimming and biking! Not to mention strength training and planks!
When was the last time you did something that scared you?
Do you like to swim?
