So, today was a Wednesday.
Which is usually a running day.
BUT NOT TODAY!
“Why?”, do you ask?
Because today swimming started!
I am doing a summer swim team with my awesome friend Mary! Today was (as I already said…) our first practice and I was super excited all day. Okay, actually I have been excited about swim team starting since I signed up for it like three months ago! See, when I was younger I was on swim team with Abby and I was actually pretty good. Of course that was like three+ years ago but I was good, so I was excited/nervous to see how my swimming skills are/will improve.
I am OUT of shape.
But that’s okay.
I’m super competitive so being on a team is good for me! I refused to let anyone pass me and I actually passed about half of the team so by the end of the 75-minute practice I had established myself as, at the least, a fighter. 😉
We did a bunch of drills for freestyle and it was so hard. By the end of it, I was SO sore. But, it was the good kind of sore. The “I-just-kicked-butt” kind of sore. 😉 (sorry Mom…) Running is a really good workout but swimming? Swimming is by far the best sport in the world. If you want to get in shape, swim. Okay?
I LOVEEE to swim. I do! And it’s only been the first practice. And I already remember why I loved it. Well, I never really forgot.
Don’t worry. I’m not ditching running!! I was itching to get out there all day, but Mary had warned me that the first day is always a big workout (mostly cause you are out of shape ;P) so I decided to conserve my energy and just chill out at home.
Chill out: to eat food and tan. And go on walks with your little brothers.
That’s what I did. All day. It was fun. I was feeling lazy. Obviously. 😉 I was also coming down off of my high from last night’s party. No. Not a real high. Just an excitement, I-love-people high. 🙂 Just clearing that up. MY POINT IS, I am very glad that I conserved my energy cause I definitely needed all of it!
Have I mentioned that I love to exercise? I feel like I have….
Person: You want to go on a 20-mile bike ride?
Person: You want to go on a 7-mile run?
Me: I’m game!!
Person: You want to go practice with Michael Phelps for five hours?
Person: You want to go work out at the gym?
Me: Can you get me in?
Person: You want to play a game of 1-on-1 street ball??
Me: (How can you answer NO to that question!?!? 😉 )
Okaaay. You get the picture? Yes? Good?
