What a fantastic run. I did the exact same workout last Tuesday, but I felt a thousand times better this week.

Immediately after the run, Zach and I headed up to the gym to lift weights. We did chest and shoulders, plus core. *flexes*
This morning I got up and went to the pool and had a great swim. It was NOT busy at all, so I did not have to share a lane. At times, I was hardly sharing the pool! It was sweet. I did 15 laps = 750m in 20 minutes! I actually focused on swimming 5 laps = 250m without stopping, then resting between sets. It went pretty well! I felt really strong and focused on reaching forward and "winding up" as the Total Immersion book says, then pulling slow and steady back. I was consistently taking about 18 strokes per length. I went hard the last lap but did not time myself. Then I sat outside in the hot tub for a few minutes and thought about how unfair it is that I have to work today. :D
