We went swimming again last night! Colin and Logan came along. I tried to do some lengths of front crawl and it was an epic fail I’ll have to work on getting better.
What was awesome is that our rec centre has a huge water slide in it! Colin and I went down it. Sorry Logan, gotta wait till you’re 4ft high ….fortunately for us adults we are already surpassed the height requirements. WHHEEEEEE!
I don’t have a waterproof camera. I should really get one…so to prove how much fun I have I’ll show you what my hair looked like upon waking up <— because that’s a adequate substitute for an almost 30 year old on a water slide right?!
*I’m totally going out like this today – people will envy this volume – ENVY IT!
Logan didn’t enjoy me taking hair photos as soon as he woke me up and collapsed in protest….
Swimming always tuckers me out. I had already done some serious 800′s earlier. I was WAY faster than I thought I was going to be.
I rocked those 800′s – I can’t tell you my exact paces as I only have a nike+ but I measured my loop on google maps and google earth and then calibrated my nike+ around it to 800 meters. Anyway, nike+ only displays your current pace on the screen as you’re running – I was running too fast to look at it my average pace for the whole workout was 10:30 though and that included walking warm up/cool down and 400 meter jogs with Rex
*post workout hugs are motivating. FACT.
As mentioned above I used my own “track” so I could leave Rex on the lawn with my water bottle for my 800 fast laps and pick him up for the 400 jogs. He ended up running a couple of the 800′s with me just because of where they stopped.
Overall this workout was solid – the only issue I had was….and this is going to be a TMI story – I peed my pants!
Yep sure did. I had to come racing back into the house mid speedwork to change my shorts! On one of my fastest laps sans Rex, I was squeezing and squeezing but this mom just couldn’t hold it. Kegels you and I have a date today
I guess there’s a first for every thing *Oh and Logan pees his pants all the time. We’re currently in a “I want to wear diapers” rebelious stage. But today I bribed him with a new toy and surprise, surprise we’ve had a few pees and even a poo on the potty!
1. what is your least favourite swim stroke?
FRONT CRAWL! I’d rather do breast stroke or back stroke forever. I hate having my face in the water. lol
2. ever do speedwork off the track, off the treadmill??
It was super fun – I think I’ll try this again!
3. be honest (so I don’t feel as embarrassed) have you ever peed during a run!?
