I love to hate it.
I hate to love it.
I know I went through a period of time where I appreciated swimming but now that I’ve been able to get back on my bike, I kind of don’t love the pool anymore. Actually…. I have secretly been despising it lately. Because why would I want to be inside getting wet when I can be out in the summer air with the breeze in my face?
Anyway, last night I guess I appreciated it again… I’m trying to really rest my foot so I’m swapping some of my other cardio sessions for the pool. I’m kind of blah about the whole thing but I know what I need to do and haven’t really been doing it.
So anyway, I swam last night. I love that I can push myself and get my heart racing in the water without putting stress on my body. About halfway through, my foot really started bothering me… so I grabbed a pull buoy and kept going. I feel like the pool is one of the best places to make modifications but still get an intense workout. I ended up swimming 1,000m which was not too shabby. (If I were to continue this story, I’d tell you about how I broke the cardinal rule of grocery shopping and went on an empty stomach… right after this swim…. but let’s just stop there)
I’ll honestly be happy when there comes a time when I don’t need to swim anymore but for now, it is what it is. I guess the bright side is I will have the swimming part down pat if I ever get to a place where I can do a triathlon. A girl can dream, right?
What is going on with you this week?
Do you swim?
Are you sad summer is almost over? I am but I also love fall. Winter… please stay away.
