It was quite the chore finding a lap swimming suit!
I guess maybe it has been a while....16 years!
I finally found one...didn't fit the best...but I squeezed into it! =)
My goggles were a bit worn....okay totally shot!
I ran to the local sports store (which thankfully we have one now), and picked up a pair of goggles!
I was ready to go for my first swim!
I just happened to mention to my oldest daughter, on my way out, that I was going to go swim a mile! (I wasn't planning on actually swimming a mile)
But she laughed at me!
"I don't think so mom! You don't swim!"
Well, from there it went like this...
Me..."Honey, I can swim!"
B..."a mile?...no way! How many laps is that? 10?"
Me..."72 (I think)!"
Then she ran downstairs laughing....telling Dad that I think I can swim a mile!
I was getting in way over my head!
But you can guarantee...I was not coming home until I had swam 72 laps!
Said "Good Bye" to all the crying kids...."We want to swim too!"
It was 9:00 at night...they probably should have already been in bed!
As I am driving away...Brooke comes running out..."Remember, 72 laps without stopping!"
I was looking forward to a few stops!
I DID IT!
I swam a mile....No stops....41 minutes!
I know that is slow...but HEY! I DID IT!
I am super excited about swimming and biking....(well, I think I am excited about biking)! I really feel that this is what I need to help my running. I get injured so quickly, that this will be great cross training. That is how I first started to swam ....back in that day! I swam for training in college!
Oh by the way if you have interest in a home yoga video...I am giving one away on my family blog!
I love to do yoga...I feel like it helps me a ton! I don't live in a big city and so I have found some videos that I feel are super good and challenging!
