2/25/2008

Getting back into the pool has turned out to be much harder than getting back into lifting, biking and running. I think I just dread the swim so much I talk myself out of going swimming much quicker. Oh well, the swimming saga will continue until I get out of the water at IMFL. I did manage to swim a little bit on Sunday, and then had my lesson this morning. My goggles keep leaking, which drives me crazy, and yesterday, I attempted to wear an old swim suit and nearly gave the little boy lifeguard some serious booby shots, as it was sooo loose my boobies were falling out! I was swimming along and thinking that something felt weird so I sort of looked down to see my lefty hanging out...needless to say, I stopped and tied knots in the straps to keep'em under wraps. Not the best look, but it worked. The swim suit went in the trash as soon as I walked in the door!

The 10-mile this weekend was surprizingly ok, even after the hard-ass hour ride that Mark put us through. I think I'll be glad when power month is over, but worry what's next at the same time!

At my lesson this morning, I had to swim with my eyes closed, which was ok for the first 50, but then after doing a couple of sprints, not so good as I banged into the right lane markers and then the left (so hard I knocked my goggles off) like a pin ball. ProKaren was laughing at me, and some woman was asking if I had my eyes closed. Shoot, I hope I never swim like that with my eyes open, because that would really make the swim hard...

LOL. BTW, Pro Karen and I were talking today about just how much progress you've made and how you need to give yourself a break. You are doing awesome!!!!!

So funny! Don't forget -- the loose suit is from all that weight you've lost! It is well earned "exposure"

Suuuuure. Of course it was an accident that your boobies fell out. Just like the guy who walked out of the bathroom with no bathing suit on. ;)
