20 minutes of swimming 9.5 laps. That's just over a quarter mile. I worked hard to not push off on each turn because that would make the swimming easier. And in reality I want to be able to swim a quarter mile in open water next July for the Tall Timber Triathlon. I finally conceded that next June I will have to take my swims to fresh water. I hate swimming in lakes. Just ask my kids. I rarely go in with them. But I can't do the tri without swimming in a lake.
I also swam 1.5 laps with my face in the water! As much as I hate lakes double that for putting my face in the water. I am making tremendous strides with puting my face in the water. I need a pair of goggles now so that I can see and quit bumping into the side of the pool :)
My plan had been to swim for 30 minutes this week. But I only did 20. I was sore and wanted time to sit in the hot tub. And since I am ahead in minutes of working out, I thought it would be okay to take a small break today.
Down another pound today. I was amazed because I ate 1824 calories yesterday. But I burned 600 working out which only gave me the 600 calorie defecit for the day. I can just tell that my body is eager to remove this fat I gained last month. It just keeps falling off. I have 4 more to get down to what I weighed in September. I hope it continues to slide off even then.
