Well, despite my consumption of way too many chocolate chip cookies earlier in the week, I was able to lose a pound this week. Yay! I think these two-workouts-a-day days are doing some good finally! What a blessing to be working from home now so I have the time to do what I need to do.
So while I was feeling all pumped up this morning I hurried over to the Y to swim some laps. I was a bit worried because I knew it wouldn’t be empty like it was the last time I went swimming, but it ended up being ok. There were four lap lanes open and all four had someone in them, which of course made me nervous at first, but I got over it, picked a lane and jumped in.
And guess what! Last time I did 20 laps (or about 1/4 mile) in 35 minutes. Today I did 40 laps (or about 1/2 mile) in 35 minutes! YAY!! That’s not exactly iron man speed, but hey it was great progress for me! I did a lot less resting and a lot more swimming today. 🙂
Now to keep this momentum going!
