Say hello to the world’s coldest pool ever. Brooke was a little confused as to why I was getting into the freezing pool and almost crying from freezingness but she doesn’t understand that I am trying to keep some running fitness. Good thing that pool running doesn’t require you to move around much because that way I was able to be right in front of her and entertain her the whole time.
I actually only froze for the first 2 minutes and then it felt really good. I just set my phone up against the bag and turned the timer on to keep track of my intervals.
Here is the workout that I did in the pool yesterday (I am getting my pool workouts from HERE but I was bored because Brooke went to bed early and Billy wanted to watch hockey so I decided to make the workout look cuter):
These interval workouts are the only things saving me from boredom as I pool run… I am telling myself that pool running is making me incredibly mentally strong;)
The intervals were tough stuff and I was really out of breath, I liked it. I treat pool running intervals like speed work… the easy minute was like a slow jog and for the hard minutes I did what felt like 5k-10k pace.
Sometimes I just like to put all of the foods that I am craving on top of spinach and call it a salad. For 2 salads we used: 1 grilled (HUGE) chicken breast, 3 hard-boiled eggs, 1/2 avocado, 2 tomatoes, 4 slices bacon, some cheddar cheese (under all of the other toppings) and spinach. For the dressing we mixed equal parts ranch and bbq sauce. We both loved it.
After dinner FMW made a comeback.
I told you Brooke is obsessed with the electronics. She scooted herself all the way over to the table and brought it down in front of her. Billy is so proud (I don’t know if I have ever told this to you but Billy loves Apple products as much as I love running shoes).
That big toe in the picture above is my favorite big toe in the world.
Billy has the day off from school, time to party.
What toppings did you have on your last salad?
Thoughts on hard-boiled eggs?! Like, love or hate?
Last time you got in a pool? Any swimmers reading?!?
Do you still read from real books or do you use an iPad/eReader to read?
