Michael Phelps reaction pretty much sums up my reaction to last nights 4x100M Relay. I was jumping up and down with excitement. Check out Badgergirl's post. I couldn't write it any better than she did.
Saturday I got up for a run. I really wanted to do the 8 miles on the 8th virtual race, but just wasn't prepared. After reading Nancy's race report, I knew I should have just done 5 more miles, even if I had to walk most of it!
Yesterday I went for a swim. The intention was to do a long swim, whatever that means. I was just hoping for atleast 2000M. For some reason I got into a good groove and didn't want to stop. I had plenty of time, and I wasn't getting hungry like I usually do in the pool. So, I kept swimming. However, it left me feeling very fatigued and tired the rest of the day. I really got to work on this post-workout proper nutrition stuff. Pointers?
This morning I was still a bit tired and decided to take the day off. I will eventually do my pushups (D1W5) sometime today. But, to be honest, Week 5 scares the crap out of me, even if I am doing column 1! ha!
As for the rest of the day... it has been raining pretty much all day. I plan to get some cleaning done around the apartment and then I will probably dive into a new book.
Only 1 more week and I am back at work... ah, the joy!
Happy Monday, y'all!
