Today is the best I’ve felt in forever. Yesterday wasn’t shabby, but today was pretty dang good. Did I mention that I wasn’t holding on to a ton of water either day? Yeah, that was a super huge plus!
I did about half my usual weights at the gym today, followed by a short swim. I made huge progress with the swimming, not being winded and doing more freestyle. Success! I was short on time because of my clinic today, so I was trying to just fit everything in.
On to the venue to set up for our aqua jogging clinic. I wasn’t able to get into the water last year. This year I almost didn’t make it because there wasn’t enough noodles and belts to go around (which reminds me all the noodles I bought last year are at my old house). We had a great turnout! No including our coaches, we had 17 gals and 1 guy. Fish really put us through the wringer with a 32 minute workout. At the end she gave the option to go without flotation. You better believe I tossed my noodle. It was HARD but good. I need to find a pool deep enough to do it in and be able to keep correct form. Today was a good reminder that it’s good cross training and not just for injuries. Plus you can do speed, intervals, and drills with it.
Afterward everyone went their own way. I went to lunch with one of my friends at WF. We were joined by 2 more friends later on. My boss had given me a $15 gift card there for covering her vacation. You better believe that whole dang thing went toward a salad. I even got the smallest container they have and I still made a $18 salad. Worth every penny because it’s 100% stuff I LOVE.
Now on to prep for the week and chores. It was a good weekend. There are a few things that would have made it better, like seeing Radney Foster, and more of my favorite people!
