Yet Another Excuse To Wimp Out During Workout!

Wahoo for Saturday and Wahoo for the rain that made for a quick 30 minute swim workout this morning.  I haven't swam since Tuesday when I did my 1,225 (12/25) Christmas Workout.  Which by the way is now back from the black hole of Garmin Connect.  I noticed when syncing my watch this morning that the workout was now up.  Which is a good thing.  But I've been busy teaching spinning all week with 3 classes on Wednesday and 2 classes on Thursday.  Friday I don't teach but work early in the morning so I use that as my default recovery day. UntitledI say recovery day but I think I told someone I'd go to a class next Friday at 5:45am.  Ugh, well see about that!  As for today's swim...

I was really just pushing my way in those 300's.  I'm really out of swim shape so by the last one I was feeling a bit sore and fatigued.  I really gotta snap out of my laziness when it comes to swimming.  I did a 50 easy and called it a day.  Then the storm hit and everyone had to get out anyways.  YtdWith one more swim for the month I'm at 9.22 miles (=16,225 yards, =14,836 meters).  So my goal for tomorrow is to do at least 3,775 yards to get to the 20K mark for the month.  I'll get to the pool a bit before the gang and swim a bit on my own.
