A Swim and More Stretching

So, after my post about stretching at work I totally went all out today and pretty much didn't care about what the others thought. I stretched everything I could all day long, and though I may not be as limber as I would like to be I feel like this can only end goodly. (As opposed to badly.)

I went for another swim as well. I did 1200m freestyle in 18 minutes and that was all I could handle. Swimming has become pretty boring these days, which is why I made the switch to pool running a couple of weeks ago. But given how my legs are feeling, and the fact that Around the Bay is a week and a half away I didn't want to tax my legs any more than necessary. I will return to pool running in April to be sure.

Tonight we entertained a friend of Malcolm's for a "movie night", with her Mom over for dinner and such so I didn't manage any strength stuff. The night is young, however, and I might get to it yet. There's a third of a bottle of wine left on the table however...

hmmmmm, "her" Mom, Malcolm has a lady friend???

Oh and do tell, what happend to the third bottle of wine?

No, I'm not running the Around the Bay this year, too many of the group I lead were not going, so I'm happily running at home.

Have a GREAT time and don't forget to save up for the "HILL".

Good job with the stretching. Swimming is good for cardio work, but nothing will make you a better runner except running.

Xenia: Strawberry Shortcake. My older son was NOT impressed. And now Malcolm would like us to refer to him as "Nut Pupcake". I don't know where the Nut came from, but he pretty much is one so the fit is there!
