I successfully put in another swim this morning prior to heading to work. Don't get me wrong, the alarm going off at 445 am was quite a shock to the system this morning but I knew that if I didn't do it this morning it wasn't going to get done. It just felt so good to get it done right away, head to work, and be home to relax before 5pm. Ahhh.
And, I know that time really shouldn't matter in the pool, but yesterday's swim just really sucked. I think I was in the pool for almost 45 minutes and did 1700M, average almost 2:38/100M. That bugs me because I know I can do better and today's swim proved that. I got in the pool, determined to have a good swim and ignore the warmer water temps. Thus, I swam 1600M in approximately 35 minutes... averaging 2:11/100M. Much better.
Now, I am afraid I will not get in the pool until after Labor Day. The pool will be closing to be drained and cleaned. That's okay. I really need to start focusing more on my running as I hope to get in a couple more 5K's before temperatures really drop and 2008 comes to a close... with the idea of shaving my 5K PR in November. yeah.
UPDATE ..... I have let my pushups slide a bit. I didn't do W5D3 last friday, and then didn't do W6D1 yesterday, so today I just did W5D2 again and will attempt W5D3 on thursday. All in all I did 129 pushups this evening... maxing out at 35. I can't wait to be done with this challenge!
