I feel like I’m in a bit of no man’s land when it comes to finding the time to swim. Early mornings just aren’t working and I’m still finding nights difficult.
9:00 pm is definitely the witching hour for me! In university I had to quit studying at 9 as I just couldn’t comprehend things anymore. Going to the movies after 9 pm? I will, without a doubt, fall asleep. Talk to me on the phone and I feel like I’m having difficulty holding up my end of the conversation.
So yesterday I gave lunch swimming another go. It was a great way to break up the day and my swim went really well. Loved it! It does take quite a chunk out of the day (15 minute walk each way, plus the one hour workout and the time to shower and get ready). Thankfully we do have some flexibility in our hours at work, so it is great to know that a lunch swim can be a great backup plan.
In other lunch workout news I met up with Kelly to knock out a 30 minute run today. I wanted to test out my legs to see if they still knew how to run sub-10 minute miles. Luckily they responded and the run in the sun was great! I have my first race of the season on Saturday – the St. Patrick’s Day 10K – so I wanted to push the pace a tiny bit more than I have in the last few weeks. I’m not expecting a PR on Saturday, but I think I should be able to crank out a half decent time.
Who else is going to be racing with me on Saturday? :)
