*Possible TMI Warning!*
Last night, I wanted to do both the strength training circuit and swim. But in which order? If I swam first, I would not want to put a bra on aftewards (and I did not pack one anyway as I brought a sweatshirt to wear home and straight to bed!). If I did strength training first, I might be tired during the swim. So I just went ahead and did strength training. I did not have to wait for any machine! The gym was quite empty, as oppposed to the same time on Monday when every treadmill was being used! I have not felt tired after my circuit, so I decided to amp things up a bit. And wouldn't you know it, after 6480 pounds lifted, I was tired. My legs, oh my legs! At that point, I knew this swim wasn't going to feel the best, but I went ahead and did it anyway. Here is what I did:
4x50 on :55 sec
4x50 on :65 sec
4x50 on :75 sec
(Don't let the 50s fool you! They nearly killed me! I was making them on 50-53ish. Not much of a break at the beginning!)
200 kick, choice
4 x 25 w/:15 sec rest
25 Butterfly + 75 Backstroke
25 Butterfly + 75 Breastroke
25 Butterfly + 75 Freestyle
4 x 50 your least fave stroke (breastroke)
4 x 50 your fave stroke (backstroke)
2 x 50 timed (which I turned into a cool down)
Apparently that is 2100 yards, not 2200. Well, could have been 2150, I lost count on the last pull of the 50s.
Today has been a crap shoot in terms of food. I had a coupon for BOGO breakfast sandwiches at McDs (why do I do this to myself???) and in addition to those I got a fruit and yogurt parfait.
So work was going well and I ate one sandwich. And in the back of my mind, I knew that other one was in the fridge. What was that? Is my stomach saying I'm hungry??? Well hop on over the the fridge! Down sandwich #2. Merely 30 seconds later (It could have been like 5 mins, idk. But it was a short amount of time) a co-worker stopped in and said there had been a meeting this morning that was catered and there was leftover fruit and bagels. Really? What kind of a person would I be if I skipped free fruit? And bagels sounded nasty anyway. Well, I mean, as long as they don't have "garden" or "veggie" cream cheese (FAVORITE!). I mosey on over there and behold -- other pastries besides bagels. Ignore it Em! Oh, what's in this little bowl? Single servings of garden cream cheese? MUST HAVE. I got garden cream cheese, fresh pineapple (swoon!), a bunch of grapes, and -- almost a bagel. I saw half a croissant. It had the possibility of having chocolate in it. I got that instead. No chocolate, messy croissant. duh I ate all of it and no it wasn't good.
And now it's like 1:30pm. Pineapple and some grapes are left, I have salmon and zucchini&squash in the fridge along with a mango. When will I be hungry for those? When will I eat the good stuff? Hmph. Hopefully for dinner or a late lunch. SwimSis asked if I wanted to go to the local minor league baseball game. I don't. There are several reasons which I will list for anyone who reads this: 1) They are going to eat out. 2) I'll have to find something to wear. 3) Most of my clothes are dirty. 4) I am tired. 5) I don't want to spend the money. 6) I've gone to 2 games before and had amazing seats. How can I top that? 7) I am obviously whiny.
I'm hoping to find and charge my rechargable batteries. I feel bad I have them (although they are MIA) and I have been using regular batteries which are expensive! Hopefully I will have some pictures soon!
