I’m A Fish!

Thanks for the positive remarks on the hair.  Too bad it will never look that good again!  Don’t you hate that?!

I was back in the pool today (It doesn’t seem to be hurting my hair) for a lovely workout.  When I go to the pool I try and do at least a mile.  The Y pool is in yards to this means I need to swim 1760 yards.  I did 2000yrds like this:

  • 100yrds kickboard warm up
  • 200yrds free
  • 200yrds breast
  • 200yrds arm pulls
  • 300yrds free
  • 100yrds kickboard
  • 200yrds free
  • 200yrds breast
  • 100yrds arm pulls
  • 400yrds free – sprint last 25yrds of each 100

Does anyone have any good pool workouts?  I can’t find anything good when I google “pool workouts”.

I also decieded to shower at the gym tonight.  So much easier!  I was already wet from the pool, why oh why did I think it was smarter to dry off and drive home just to get wet again??  Never again my friend.

Post swim it was time to fuel!

IMG_0326 Italian millet and almost an entire acorn roasted on coconut oil.  Using coconut oil is seriously the best way to roast squash!


Italian Millet:

  • 1 serving of millet cooked in veggie broth
  • sun dried tomatoes
  • fresh rosemary
  • nutritional yeast flakes


I had to force myself not to eat all of the squash.  I think I left about 4 pieces for my lunch tomorrow 🙂

If you live in the Baltimore area stop by Patterson Park this Saturday for BARCStober Fest!  All proceeds go to the shelter were I got my fur baby and they get ALL of the Baltimore City Animal Control cases so obviously need a lot of support.

    Don’t you love swimming?!?? I’m on campus at the moment but I have a good pool workout at home I ripped out of a magazine. If you don’t hear from me soon remind me to send it to you.

  2. I’ve been looking for some good pool workouts too, I can only count so many laps of front crawl before I wonder what else I can ‘play with’ to really target all of my muscles and get my heart pumping!

    Please share if you find anything!

    I remembered that your marathon last year was sponsoring BARCS. I will make a donation again!
