|This just in - taking home leftover sundae bar toppings is not conducive to fitting in to one's bridesmaid dress.|
I repeated last Tuesday's swim workout this morning, except I reduced the amount of rest time between laps (which I now know means down and back - thanks, Erin!) from 20 seconds to 15. I actually gave the notes (yes, I'm that person, I hope that doesn't lose me any blog friends) I took at the swim lecture that Lily and I attended a few months ago a quick once over before I headed to the Y. I decided to focus on form, not speed, and it made a HUGE difference. I didn't feel like I was going to die after each lap. Operation DO NOT DROWN just may turn out to be a success.
If you are a swimmer and reading this - PLEASE help me! I was in so much pain that I almost didn't make it to the end - from my googles. The rest of my body was fine. In order to keep water out I seem to need them tight enough so they are bruising my eye bones and about to suck my eyeballs out of their sockets. No one else at the pool appeared to be in this situation. What is the secret?
I have a late meeting at work tonight so I am missing yoga - sad. But I just got GREAT news that a friend got engaged this weekend, so it's a tradeoff.
I'm about to go get observed by my principal and 3 other teachers and have it videotaped so I can enjoy it later....can't wait. Also it's supposed to be 80 which is about 30 degrees higher than it has been every other day so I am wearing the only short sleeved shirt and skirt I could find and it doesn't look even remotely professional.
