How to Swim When You're FREEZING!

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

This will be short, because I'm getting kids out the door for school and I have 2 papers due by tomorrow...*sigh*

Anyway I was up in the middle of the night writing, and I got super cold and couldn't get warm again! I tried going back to bed to get warm, but I just laid there and shivered. I told myself last night that I would swim today; I ran 2 miles yesterday, and tomorrow is ST, and it's too cold to ride a bike right now. So swimming it would be, like it or not. The temp here has gone way down since my Monday bike ride to school in 71F! But I did it.

How??? Well, first I sucked it up and dragged myself out of bed, and after I got my suit on, I put several layers on. Including my fleece sweatshirt that ALWAYS warms me up. Then, I went to the gym, and instead of going straight to the pool, I stopped at an elliptical machine first. 5 minutes on that thing, with my fleece still on, was all it took, and I couldn't wait to jump into that cool water.

I only got 1000 yards today, because I had to get going, but I went and got it done. Spark On. :)

    Awesome - I was thinking you'd have to get warm somehow - the elliptical is always a good way to warm up fast.
