I started swimming last week, and it felt sooo good to back in the game. I've been so bad so far about training for this triathlon, but I think I'm finally getting it together. After a really long time, I swam for a mile on Friday. My mind resisted a lot initially, and to ease some of the complaining, I did 10 lengths with a pull buoy (yaay! thanks Steph!). I felt all sorts of aches and pains as I swam the first 10 laps. But I kept at it, and told myself, alright, I'll go as far as I can. After 20 laps, I was all warmed up and did the rest of distance easily.
After the swim, I was surprised to find myself so energized & buzzed! :) The swimming bug's caught me now. I'm definitely back in the groove.
