The End is Near
The work week is finally wrapping up which is super sweet. It’s been a pretty busy week and I’m looking forward to the weekend. Not that my weekend won’t be busy but we are suppose to have nice weather and a run or two will be necessary. It’s been almost two weeks since I last run which is crazy. No wonder I’ve been feeling the stress a bit more lately.
I managed to get about half of my swim workout in last night before more team members started showing up. We didn’t have quite as many swimmers last night so we were able to focus more and help out individual swimmers. One of the main things that we noticed last night was the newer swimmers were holding their breath while their face was in the water instead of exhaling during this time. It’s the body’s natural reaction when it feels the pressure of the water and it’s something that I struggled with last year. Within a couple of laps they were doing better and you could see their excitement. It was funny when I heard the latest Get Your Geek On podcast this morning and Iron Will told a story about this very topic. I swear half the battle I had with swimming was just overcoming the natural reactions the body has when it’s submerged.
My plans to stay in tonight and be fresh for my two workouts tomorrow morning have changed a bit. One of the other mentors is celebrating his birthday so I will be “forced” to go out so awhile tonight. We’ll be heading to downtown
