v. pleased with myself  

I woke up at about 6:40 this morning and almost talked myself out of going to swim. But then I thought, “Self, you *always* feel better after exercising, and you know you won’t go later in the day.” So I got up and walked through the POURING RAIN and had a quite nice swim. I did 500 meters of just kicking, which loosened up my very, very, very sore legs (we walked about eight and a half miles on Wednesday, and then yesterday I did barre exercises. My legs huuuuuurt.), which was good. Of course, my legs felt like rubber afterward, but still, it was good. :)

And, in honor of tersa, who is kicking ass and taking names, I did a whole 50 meters of butterfly at once. :) (Tersa, mind you, is doing *hundreds* of yards of fly, but this is only the fifth time I’ve swum.)

Man, the problem with exercising is it makes me STARVELATE, and yet eating everything in sight kind of defeats the point. OM NOM NOM.

Today I will break 50K on TRUTHSEEKER.


miles to Dunharrow: 169.9
ytd km swum: 9.1

You did 50 meters of FLY?

I'd be needing oxygen.

I feel sorry for those who don't understand just how demanding a stroke that is. GO GIRL.

There is something about swimming in particular that makes me voracious afterwards. I'm really not sure why.

I think it's because you use your entire freaking body at once to swim.

At least, that's what I tell myself. :)

And you burn a zillion calories!

But only twice ever!

Go you for doing fly, though. :)

(And yes, I was absolutely starvelating this morning, too. I didn't so much eat and drink as inhale my oatmeal and tea.)
