I did it!!
I swam this morning. I tried swimming after work one day a week or so ago, but I didn't have my swim cap, and there were kids in the pool I had to swim around.
This morning, however, I got up early for the pool's official "lap swim" times, and I swam 400 meters. Like it was nothing. I rested 10 seconds between each lap and finished in 15 minutes. This is huge for me! It means I lost practically none of my conditioning the 2 months I was benched.
It also means I have 6 weeks to perfect my swim. 400 meters is my race distance - so I'll be working on cutting out the rest between laps as well as making those laps faster!!
The news on the weight loss front is not so hot. I gained 0.8 this week. I'm sorry for my team, but I'm not really all that freaked about it. I'm still getting back into the swing of calorie counting and its that dreaded week. Last group challenge I gained as much as 3 pounds my 4th week of the month, which promptly fell off the following week.
I'm sure the same will happen next week. Let's go Cute Calorie Cutting Challengers!!!
