I had a fantastic swim on Friday night! After the rough week I had, I was expecting to be tired and lethargic. I wasn’t! I swam fast and had perfect form. My energy level felt like I had just taken espresso shots. It was the best swim I’ve had in weeks.
I also wore my new swimsuit. My old one ripped last week and it was just time to suck it up and buy a new one. The swimsuits I buy are made for lap swimmers. Polyester doesn’t fade or discolor as fast as other types of swimsuits. With the amount I swim, my suits last about a year. Polyester suits are also more expensive. My suit runs between $80-100. Since I switched from a chlorine to a salt water pool, my suits have lasted even longer. Yep here’s me in my new suit (I got black this time).
40 lengths freestyle without stopping
10 lengths breaststroke
6 lengths kickboard only
10 lengths freestyle with leg buoy
4 lengths backstroke
10 lengths freestyle with leg buoy and hand paddles
10 lengths freestyle with hand paddles
Before I went swimming, I posted on Twitter that I hoped Michael would have a cold, adult beverage ready for me when I got home from the pool. I posted it as a joke but boy, he came through!
I walked in the door after swimming and was handed a cold, tasty brew!
Michael was making turkey burgers and seasoned fries for dinner. Michael’s burger had blue cheese on top. Mine had Colby Jack cheddar.
But wait, there’s more! ;)
He also bought a piece of chocolate cake to split for dessert.
And for breakfast on Saturday – bacon and bagel thins. For dinner Saturday night, he got steak. Wonderful! He thought of everything.
It was fantastic! :)
