Swimming

Ran Pear Tree Point route today, 4.5 miles down by the water. No real expectations, managed to run it all (no walking) in 39:15. Just looked back at some logs, my fastest time ever was 35:15 (at 4 weeks pregnant, unbeknownst to me at the time!), I think an average time was around 38. Felt heavy...partly because I'm sure I'm still carrying around 6 extra pounds or so (haven't been on the scale in a while! Like, months.) and partly because my legs are sore from boot camp Saturday and spinning Sunday. Still, it felt good to run. Last week I only managed to run twice (it rained all week, except the one day I had no time to work out of course), both times on the treadmill and I just was so not into it that I only did 2 miles (speedwork, trying for variety to make me go longer but didn't work). Lifted more though.

Sunday while I was spinning Fred brought Andra to the pool. I got to watch most of it since he got there toward the end of my class. She loved it!! He put her on a kickboard so she could go surfing. She was just a super happy baby and full of smiles for everyone who talked to her.




I found out today that I can buy a pass for the town pool where I teach. It's a super nice pool with a great kiddie pool and lots of shade. The only down side is that I'll see tons of high schoolers I know, but on the up side, maybe I can pay one of them to babysit for half an hour while I swim laps!

But would you trust then with Andra? In water? :-)

She is just adorable in her swimmers.

Sweet baby! I like the town pool idea too. And good trail run for you - it's hard not to walk when your legs feel heavy.

What's boot camp?

That's great about the run (too funny you were super fast 4 wks preggers) and the pool pictures are adorable! I have to try Nick on a kickboard -good idea! Love the idea of babysitters @ the poo!
