Tuesday I didn't swim or run. The day was full with day to day stuff and there was a Drs appointment right during my normal swim time. Wednesday I swam. There were a TON of people there. I had to share a lane with some guy. I was all self conscious so I started off with kicking and then started my normal swimming once everyone started leaving and I could get a lane of my own. I ended up doing 1700 in 43.15. It took my 14 min to do 500 and that's cause I kicked all of it.
Today it was busy again. I didn't have to share a lane (yay!) I really hope this doesn't become a new thing. I enjoy just being the only one there swimming laps. Today I felt strong. It was nice.
(500 in 11.49.11)
Total: 1800 in 44.56.11
Today I tried paying attention to my strokes when it came to freestyle. I wanted to make sure that I took nice long strokes and practiced breathing from both sides. One thing I noticed was I have a stronger stroke when I breath to my left, but I'm weaker breathing to that side. So, today when I swam I made sure to switch off and on between my left and right sides. I also noticed that my body naturally went into a dolphin kick when I pushed off the sides. My body is starting to get back into the groove of swimming. I was amazed that I was able to do my 500 in 11.49. That's my fastest one yet. I'm trying to figure out when the best time to start adding running would be. Do I do it before a couple hours earlier in the morning when everyone is still sleeping? Or do I do it right before I swim? Or do I wait later in the day? I don't know. I just know that I would enjoy adding running to my routine again. I just have to figure out a time when it doesn't take away from family time.
