Swimming! Yea for the pool by my house. 30 minute workout and I am as useless as a wet noodle.
100m warmup-various strokes
100 breast stroke
Total: 1250m in 30 minutes
Ok, not lightening speed, but it is the second swim of the season and probably the second longest I've ever done. I only took 2 breaks to fix my goggles which were bruising my eye sockets...I figured I didn't need to make the bags under my eyes any worse. :)
My arms were sore from the toes to bars/high pulls the day before and my inner thighs were absolutely fried doing the breast stroke after all those SDHP's. SDHP's totally work your inner thighs/hamstrings....apparently so does the breast stroke.
I figured I was doing ok when I was joined in my lane by a 50ish year old man with a huge belly wearing a tiny black speedo and flippers and I was matching/exceeding him lap for lap. I want flippers to make me faster....
The best part was trying to walk home---a serious uphill climb that is not fun when you already worn out. But, I'm sure the body will get used to it.
Now for a few days off--Taking Chip to rehab and staying a few days. I will pack some workout clothes...I've been known to get creative. I will also pack a swimsuit so I can hit the thermal/mineral baths this town is known for and get some much needed rehab myself. Wearing a swimsuit in the middle of winter used to be very very scary, but thanks to crossfit its not quite so bad! yea for relaxing!
