It’s not even June yet, and we’re in the mid-90s. I ran Lady Bird Lake tonight and, but for the shady spots, felt like you could have fried an egg on my body. It was that hot. Somehow I’ve got to get through the summer in full training mode. It’s going to be a tough few months.
I mentioned last time that I’m back in the pool. The pool has only gotten better with each swim. After my fifteen minutes swim, my next swim was a solid 2 miles in 59 minutes. I wasn’t racing or even pushing. I was just swimming, so I feel good about the time. I’ve done the two mile thing a couple of times since then. Mostly recently, yesterday. I went to Founder’s Park because it was too nice out to swim in an indoor pool. Two miles later I had a nice tan to show for the swim. It was a bit of a burn actually, but by today it’s looking more like a tan. There truly is nothing like an outdoor swim. I’m considering moving my gym membership to Lifetime Fitness just so I can have regular access to an outdoor pool! It’s a bit fickle of me, I know, but I do love my outdoor pools.
This past week was light on workouts, but this week will be heavier. I actually need to sit down and plan the week, which I’m off to do now. I’ll report back with the week’s schedule, so you guys can keep me accountable.
Happy Memorial Day, everyone.
