Swimming for Suds

Posted by CheapRunnerMike

Last night I hit the pool at the Y for a great one-hour swim…there was no plan, just plenty of lengths while Michelle did her Aqua Fit in the other pool, and then a stop at the bar on the way home for one of these

I haven't been swimming much at all lately so it was really nice to get out there.  I used my new waterproof headphones and the music sure helped to pass the time…they worked great!  By the end of my swim I had developed a really sore neck though, not sure what that's all about.

I've also been getting my runs in this week, including a treadmill workout session on Tuesday.  I had 3 x 2 miles on my plan and decided to utilize the 'mill again.  It is funny the looks I get from all the gym regulars that are used to me running outside no matter what the weather is like…it is just easier to get the workouts in on the treadmill sometimes though.  It is also good running indoors now and then to remind myself what it is like to run in warmer conditions (as I'm sure Florida will be).  I was a sweaty mess by the end of my workout!  I was feeling fast though…

Today is my tempo day, and the distance is ramping up now on these tempo runs…9 miles today.  I'll be out in the cold running this one.  My legs are starting to tire out, so there's a rest day coming soon (working on 10 days in a row right now).

Have a great day folks!


  1. That beer is a meal itself maybe we could do a tempo together except I will do just half

  2. Have a great weekend, you two! Keep up the workouts!

  3. That sounds like a good idea Chris, we should get something scheduled...shoot me an email and we'll try to find a time
