The first week of training before training for Ironman Kentucky is in the books! I like to call it, Orientation, or get your booty in the pool. Much to my surprise, I still swim kind of the same way that Phoebe Buffay runs.
I am still a little in shock that I signed up for this. I know I had been talking about it for a while and I am sure my friend Michelle is glad I did just so I can get it over with. My favorite thing from this week was after I emailed her and told her I signed up. Her email back to me was, "Was is the worst thing that can happen, you know, besides having a heat stroke or drowning - kidding, kidding." Ha, she is too funny.
Monday - 4 mile run
Tuesday - 45 minute trainer ride
Wednesday - 25 minute swim or 13 laps (It was pathetic)
Two mile run with Kya
Thursday - Rest, I was drinking wine with the girls
Friday - 5 mile run
40 minute swim or 25 laps (it was much easier this time)
Saturday - 1:45 minutes on the trainer
Sunday - Rest, it was Christmas afterall
I am surprised and happy with how quick the swimming portion feels easier each time I go. I have not been in the pool since August, so I am a little out of swim shape, but that is what the next few weeks are for.
Oh, and speaking of the pool, I totally walked into a shower where an older lady was. Fortunately, she had a towel around her. Apparently swimming makes me not pay attention to things like, oh I don't know, the shower curtain being closed, doesn't that usually mean someone is in there?. In my defense, she was not making any noise. I felt horrible. I hope I never see her again...
