The snow is melting

Not much to say today. I went swimming yesterday, and it wasn't that easy. I still managed to get in 30 laps, which is becoming my usual workout distance. Considering that I could barely do 8 when I started, that's pretty good. But considering that I read about other bloggers' 2000 and 3000 yard workouts, (80 and 120 laps respectively), I've got a bit to go.

Here's a few more snow pictures:

sun, fri

Can you believe the difference in 5 days? It's in the mid 50's and sunny today! There's been a little rain, and there's still a lot of snow lying around - mostly where people piled it up during shoveling. I have that cross-country race this Sunday, so I'm hoping it won't be too wet and muddy.

In other news, my job situation seems to be shaping up. I should be back to working (like a dog) again, come March 1st. I've already paid the gym up until July, so I have big plans to keep all this training up. You guys will have to keep me honest.

Have a great weekend!

Naaah, 3000 yards is "only" 60 laps (120 lengths) in a 25-yard pool. It still is way too damn far. :-)

The weather here is weird too! On Monday and Tuesday I had to run in the streets because there was so much snow, and on Wednesday and Thursday it was all disappeared!
Way to go on your swim - that's awesome!!

What a difference a week makes! Great job with the swimming, consistency is key I think. If you feel like you're in a rut, go for 31 or 32 next time, or 26, just to mix it up a little.
