Next to me in the pool was a pregnant lady. Churning out her laps. I remember swimming pregnant. What a great feeling. It was probably the only time I didn’t feel pregnant. I do remember feeling like a huge buoy, bobbing along the water. Awesome!
This morning the plan called for:
*100 swim warm up
*4 x 50 kick w/ fins; :30 rest
*4 x 50 swim; :30 rest
*4 x 50 pull; :30 rest
I’m not even really sure how long this took. I realize I’m not a fast swimmer, and I’m ok with it 🙂 Moving through the water is getting easier. The plan I’m following gradually increases the distance weekly. The mix of sets and distances is keeping me engaged; swimming just isn’t an activity where I can just zone out.
I haven’t yet committed, but I am considering an Olympic distance triathlon in June and a half-Ironman distance tri in September…we’ll see!
