After a long day of battling my way through my work, I was very tempted to blow off my planned pool workout. But how can I be such a pussy when there are rock stars like IronDiva out there (pregnant even!) who are knocking out their workouts - sometimes two a day! So I put on my big girl panties and drove to the ARC instead of going home. And while my family waited an extra hour for me to come home and head out to dinner, I got it done.
My first trip back to the pool in weeks. Couldn't wuss out and go short so I tried to do the yards to mile math and rounded up. By the way, I'm an engineer who is bad at mental math. I came up with needing to knock out 38 laps at 50 yards each. Boo-yah! That is 1900 yards or 1.08 mile cause I'm an overachiever like that. Can't say it didn't suck. Can't say I didn't seriously think about lopping a few laps off. Can't say I didn't wish there was music in my ears to make the black line boredom go by faster. And can't say I won't feel it in my upper body tomorrow. But can say I was really happy to be able to finally add to my YTD swim total. Suck that Mr. Total Ticker!
Swimming = 1900 yds = 1.08 mi
Biking = 48.0 miles
Running = 44.4 miles
